K•REAL® Krill Oil
Antarctic Krill and Krill Oil
Krill are pelagic crustaceans that mainly consume phytoplankton and some zooplankton and are in turn a major source of food for many larger marine animals, including Baleen whales and bony fish. Krill resides in all oceans, and the species Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba) is found in the Southern Ocean. Antarctic krill have a very high content of polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids, such as EPA and DHA, and are the source for krill oil.
Krill oil is extracted from Antarctic Krill, and is considered to be one of the best sources of omega-3 for our body. Krill produced oil has been clinically tested for the past decade and was found to be beneficial to our health. K•REAL® oil has also been clinically proven by Enzymotec to be more efficient than fish oil in increasing omega-3 levels in our blood.
How does it work?
K•REAL® krill oil composition is unique since, unlike almost all other omega-3 oils which are triglyceride-based, the omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) in K•REAL® krill oil are attached to phospholipids as well as to triglycerides. This special composition is clinically proven to be better absorbed into red blood cells and by target organs such as the heart, brain and liver, as compared to fish oil.
K•REAL® krill oil is produced from Antarctic krill using a Multi Stage Oil extraction process (MSO®), which assures the extraction of high quality oil rich in omega-3 in its natural phospholipid form.
