Krill Oil Capsules

Krill oil is a doctor recommended source of Omega-3 fatty acids, which, according to scientific studies, may provide a range of health benefits, including heart, brain, joint, eye, skin and immune health.* There are many important differences between krill oil and other Omega-3 supplements, like fish oil. Read on to learn why krill oil is a great way to get Omega-3 fatty acids.

1) Superior Omega-3s

Not all Omega-3 supplements are the same. Krill oil Omega-3s are in phospholipid form, which supports Omega-3 distribution throughout the body and delivery to the body's cells.

Unlike triglyceride Omega-3s, which are found in fish oil, krill oil’s phospholipid Omega-3s disperse in water and are easily blended in the stomach fluids. Want to see for yourself?

2) Easy to digest – no more fishy burps!

Many people associate fish oil Omega-3 supplements with fishy burps and digestive discomfort. Pure Antarctic krill oil supplements provide a better experience. Since krill oil Omega-3s are in a phospholipid form that blend easily in our stomachs, you do not get that fishy aftertaste or fishy burps.

3) Contains choline

Krill oil naturally contains choline, which is another essential nutrient. This means it's required for normal bodily function and human health. Although small amounts of it can be made in the liver, most choline must be obtained from your diet.

Choline supports a number of vital bodily functions, such as the health of our liver, brain, nervous system and metabolism, among others. A krill oil that provides at least 55 mg of choline per serving is considered a good source of choline (55 mg is 10% of the Daily Value for choline (550 mg), according to the FDA).

4) Has the antioxidant Astaxanthin

Some people have trouble swallowing large fish oil pills. Krill oil is available in smaller size capsules that may be easier for some people to swallow. This allows for a better experience, especially for those taking multiple pills to support their health.

5) Smaller pills vs. standard fish oil

Some people have trouble swallowing large fish oil pills. Krill oil is available in smaller size capsules that may be easier for some people to swallow. This allows for a better experience, especially for those taking multiple pills to support their health.

6) Certified sustainable & traceable

Krill are harvested in an eco-friendly way. In fact, the Antarctic krill fishery is one of the most sustainably managed fisheries in the world. When you choose a krill oil supplement that is sustainably sourced and 100% traceable back to the origin, you can feel good about your choice.
