krill oil

Krill are tiny, shrimp-like crustaceans that flourish in the Antarctic Ocean and provide food for numerous aquatic animals. Oil made from Krill has come on the market as an alternative to fish oil. Like fish oil, krill Oil contains the omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). It also contains omega-6 fatty acids , an antioxidant in the carotenoid family called astaxanthin , and substances called phosopholipids. krill Oil has been studied for its beneficial properties including a powerful antioxidant, in the conditions like PMS, Osteoporosis, etc. Recently, nutritional companies have discovered a way to extract a pure oil rich in phospholipids, omega-3 and antioxidants from Antarctic krill. The synergy between these components creates a remarkably nutritious complex that offers significant health benefits.

The health benefits related to long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, especially EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), have been demonstrated by numerous recent studies. EPA and DHA are recognized to play an important role in fetal and early childhood development (learning and behavioural disorders). Their ability to fight inflammatory processes causing degenerative joint, circulatory and brain diseases is also firmly established. But the oil extracted from Antarctic krill is far from just another source of omega-3. Fatty acids contained in the krill Oil are attached to the phospholipids. krill Oil is effective in chronic fatigue syndrome. The desirable composition of Krill Oil, high in omega-3 essential fatty acids, provides a healthy balance. High levels of omega-6 fatty acids, such as from processed foods, enable your cell membranes to initiate over production of certain prostaglandins that can lead to cellular irritation, heart system imbalances and other concerns. krill Oil supplements also contain natural antioxidants, which are cell membrane protectors. They include vitamin A and a very high level of astaxanthin, an immune-supporting carotenoid, which can be used to guard your cell membranes from free radical damage, also beneficial for chronic fatigue syndrome.
