Why Are Omega-3s So Important?

Omega-3s are essential nutrients our bodies need to thrive but can’t make on its own. Omega-3s support immune, heart, brain, joint, eye and skin health.*

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 found in real fish and krill oil support superior Omega-3 absorption vs fish oil. They also aid in the digestion of Omega-3s so there is no fishy aftertaste.


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 with phospholipids for excellent Omega-3 absorption. Multivitamins and plant-based sources of Omega-3s lack Omega-3 levels we 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 absorption and digestion. Krill oil also contains the essential nutrient choline, which supports brain and nervous system health, and has the antioxidant astaxanthin.

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.

What Makes Kori Krill Oil A Superior Omega-3?

Kori Krill Oil is a pure Antarctic Omega-3 source that supports heart, brain, joint, eye, skin and immune health, powered by phospholipids for superior Omega-3 absorption vs fish oil.* Plus, it has no fishy aftertaste and is certified sustainable. Krill oil is clinically proven to raise Omega-3 levels.

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

Omega 3


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 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-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.
