Antarctic Krill oil capsules – 500mg:
Krill oil comes from krill – tiny shrimp-like creatures that live in very cold ocean waters.
Krill oil contains two types of omega-3 fatty acid: eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
EPA and DHA contribute to the normal function of the heart (with a daily intake of 250mg).
DHA and EPA contribute to the maintenance of normal blood pressure (with a daily intake of 3g of EPA and DHA).*
DHA contributes to the maintenance of normal blood triglyceride levels (with a daily intake of 2g of DHA and when taken in combination with EPA).*
DHA contributes to maintenance of normal brain function (with a daily intake of 250mg of DHA).
DHA contributes to maintenance of normal vision (with a daily intake of 250mg of DHA).
*Users should not exceed a supplemental daily intake of 5g of EPA and DHA combined.
Krill oil also contains astaxanthin, as well as phospholipids.
Astaxanthin is a pigment that belongs to a group of chemicals called carotenoids. It occurs naturally in certain algae and causes the pink/red colour of krill.
Phospholipids are a type of large group of organic compounds called “lipids” (naturally-occurring molecules). Phospholipids are a major component of all cell membranes.
Unlike some fish oil capsules, with Antarctic krill oil there is no fishy after-taste!
