Getting adequate levels of omega-3
Getting adequate levels of omega-3 fatty acids is one of the best things you can do for a healthy heart. Omega-3s, commonly found in cold water fish as well as some fruits and vegetables, are vital to the health of the cell membrane and also contribute to a healthy heart, a healthy brain and structural system health.
Krill oil is a source of highly bioavailable omega-3 fatty acids
Krill oil is a source of highly bioavailable omega-3 fatty acids extracted from Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba) that contains phospholipids, which bind to the omega-3s allowing for better absorption. These phospholipids are an essential component of all cell membranes, keeping toxins out and letting more nutrients and oxygen in. Krill oil also contains natural astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant, and NSP Krill Oil adds the cardiovascular benefits of vitamin K2.
Features and Benefits of Krill Oil with Vitamin K2 and Astaxanthin:
- Contains omega-3 fatty acids.
- Helps maintains a healthy heart.
- Supports healthy brain function.
- Provides joint and skin support.
- Is extracted from Antarctic krill.
What is Antarctic Krill?
Krill represents the largest biomass on earth with an estimated 500 to 800 million tons of krill in the oceans. Krill are tiny crustaceans that are a critical food source for whales, penguins and other ocean animals. Antarctic krill are the most robust and sustainable source of krill.
Because krill are such a vital species to the oceanic ecosystems, harvesting is highly regulated. Trawling is only allowed during the main season and only 1% of the allowable limit is actually harvested. These restrictions ensure that the krill population remains sustainable.
