Krill oil is one of the richest sources of omega-3 in nature because it contains high concentrations of the extremely beneficial omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), as well as the natural antioxidant astaxanthin.
Krill oil has a unique molecular structure in the form of marine phospholipids. It helps the cells of the human body to absorb omega-3 fatty acids much more efficiently than from other sources of omega-3. Krill oil gained wider international recognition from 2005 until 2008, and has been used ever since as the best, most efficient and biologically most easily obtainable source of omega-3.
Krill are small crustaceans similar to shrimp, tiny aquatic animals that live in large swarms in the purest waters of the world in Antarctica.
Krill are beneficial, special, and differ from fish in that they contain marine phospholipids, omega-3 fatty acids and the antioxidant astaxanthin which the krill get by feeding on red algae. Krill form the largest biomass in the world, so we need not worry that they might disappear one day.
