Ingredient: Krill Oil



DESCRIPTION: Neptune krill oil (NKO) is a dietary supplement rich in omega-3 fatty acids that comes from a small crustacean that is similar to shrimp. It is found in the colder bodies of water in the world such as the Antarctic and North Pacific oceans. Krill oil is similar to fish oil in that it contains the omega-3 essential fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). However, the similarity ends there. Oil from krill has a phospholipid structure whereas fish oil has a triglyceride form. It also has an addition to EPA called astaxanthin, which is a powerful antioxidant. This makes the ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) value of krill oil 48 times more potent than fish oil. For many consumers, though, the main advantage of this oil over its fish oil cousin is its rapid absorption, which eliminates the 'fishy' aftertaste and belching. There is also less concern over potential mercury or lead poisoning. People with allergies to shrimp or other seafood should use caution if supplementing with this oil.
