Scientifically Proven Benefits of Omega-3s

Like other nutrients we get from a healthy balanced diet and multivitamins, Omega-3s are necessary for the long-term support of our overall health and wellness. If this sounds fishy to you, keep in mind Omega-3s are among the most well-researched nutrients.

EPA vs. DHA vs. ALA Omega-3s

2 0 4 1 EPA
Eicosapentaenoic Acid

EPA Omega-3s are essential fatty acids that support our health, especially our heart, joints, skin and immune system.* EPA Omega-3s are only naturally found in fatty fish, krill oil and fish oil.

2 0 4 2 DHA
Docosahexaenoic Acid

DHA Omega-3s are essential fatty acids that support our health in many of the same ways as EPA Omega-3s, but they also plan an especially important role in supporting our brain, eyes and central nervous system.* Only ocean sources like fish, krill oil, fish oil and algae oil provide DHA Omega-3s.

2 0 4 3 ALA
Alpha-Linolenic Acid
Plant-based sources of Omega-3s like nuts, seeds and oils only contain the ALA type of Omega-3s. Our bodies must convert ALA to EPA & DHA Omega-3s to be useful but the conversion rate is very low.

Phospholipids

Phospholipids found in real fish and krill oil support the digestion of Omega-3s and the distribution of Omega-3 EPA & DHA to parts of the body like the brain and eyes.

Triglycerides

Triglycerides are found in fish, krill oil, fish oil, algae oil and flaxseed oil. Fish oil only contains triglycerides and on their own triglycerides are neither digested nor dispersed as efficiently as Omega-3s delivered by phospholipids.

The Best Omega-3 Sources

2 0 6 Superiority Purity 1187x742
A healthy diet of fatty fish like wild Atlantic salmon is the best source of Omega-3s. For those who don’t eat fish regularly, krill oil is a superior Omega-3 source. Multivitamins and plant-based sources of Omega-3s lack Omega-3 EPA & DHA levels that our bodies need.
2 0 8 USDA guidelines

Getting the Omega-3s You Need

70% of Americans don’t eat enough fish to get the recommended amount of Omega-3s daily.1 The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) recommends two servings of seafood weekly which on average provides 250 mg of Omega-3 EPA & DHA per day. We recommend adding Kori Krill® Oil to your diet if you don’t eat enough fatty fish.

Choosing an Omega-3 Supplement: What to Look for

More Nutrients

Just like a healthy fishy diet, krill oil Omega-3 supplements contain phospholipids that support Omega-3 digestion, distribution and, ultimately, effectiveness. Krill oil also has the essential nutrient choline and the antioxidant astaxanthin. This makes krill oil unique versus fish oils and other Omega-3 supplements.

Proper Dosage
250 mg of Omega-3 EPA & DHA daily is what you would get on average from eating the weekly recommended amount of fatty fish by the USDA. If you don’t eat the recommended amount of fatty fish, check the supplement fact box to make sure your supplement delivers this amount.
Minimally Processed

Be sure that your Omega-3 supplement doesn’t contain processed “ethyl ester” forms, disclosed with an asterisk in the Supplement Facts Box if they have been added. This highly processed and concentrated form of Omega-3 oil may be inefficiently absorbed, especially when taken without a fatty meal.

Kori Krill Oil Superior Omega-3s

All Kori Krill Oil products deliver the 250 mg of Omega-3 EPA & DHA you need each day from pure Antarctic krill oil. Kori Krill Oil is superior to fish oil because it delivers Omega-3 nutrients in phospholipid form, which supports Omega-3 digestion and distribution. Kori Krill Oil also contains choline, an essential nutrient that supports brain and nervous system health, and has astaxanthin, an antioxidant.* Plus, no fishy aftertaste!

Omega-3s: More Essential Than Omega-6s or Omega-9s

Omega 3
Omega-3s

Omega-3s support cells in our hearts, brains, joints, eyes, skin and immune system.* Of the three types of Omega-3 fatty acids, EPA, DHA and ALA, Omega 3 EPA & DHA are the two with the most demonstrated health benefits. The body inefficiently converts ALA to EPA & DHA.

Omega 6
Omega-6s
Omega-6s serve important functions in our cell membranes as well. Our bodies need a balance of both Omega-3s and Omega-6s for optimal cell support. However, the average American diet is already loaded with Omega-6s but lacking in Omega-3s because we don’t eat enough fatty fish.
Omega 9
Omega-9s
Omega-9 fatty acids are the most common fats in our cells. Since they can be produced by the body they are not considered “essential” like Omega-3s.
