Here’s how krill oil can help you reap the benefits of omega-3s:
It has a tolerable aftertaste
Many of my patients appreciate that they no longer have a fishy aftertaste, burps and digestion reflux that they experienced with fish oils. Typically, krill oil comes in smaller-sized softgels (500mg), which makes them easier to swallow.
The unique quality of krill oil is its natural composition: It contains omega-3 fatty acids attached to phospholipids instead of triglycerides like in fish oils. What does this mean for you? It is more effective, as it allows the body to absorb more of the omega-3, so you can take lower doses of EPA and DHA than typically required for fish oils.
Krill oil contains a powerful antioxidant called astaxanthin. It helps avoid spoiling in your cabinet and in your stomach. Plus, the antioxidant protects cells, organs, and body tissues from free radicals.
Krill has non-detectable levels of mercury and other toxins that can be found in fish oil. Because krill is at the bottom of the food chain, it feeds on phytoplankton and not over other fish that have been accumulating mercury. Krill comes from the cleanest ocean we have— the Antarctic— and is therefore considered the cleanest, purest source of omega-3.
Krill is the largest biomass in the world (about 500million tons). Less than 1 percent of the krill that live in ocean is actually harvested each year. The Antarctic krill population is highly monitored by The Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR). Other organizations such as Friend of the Sea (FOS) and Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) certify that vessels comply with strict krill sustainability criteria, which ensure krill stock is not overfished.
In sum, krill oil provides a superior source of omega-3 fatty acids, which benefits our overall health in so many ways.
BRAND’S® Red Marine Fish Oil also contains Astaxanthin, a uniquely powerful antioxidant from micro-algae, which helps maintain healthy blood circulation by reducing low density lipoprotein – LDL (‘bad’ cholesterol) oxidation which can eventually lead to build up of fatty deposits in blood vessels resulting in blood vessel blockage. It also helps maintain blood vessel elasticity and prevents premature ageing of the blood vessels thus keeping our circulatory system young and functioning well despite our biological age.
BRAND’S® Red Marine Fish Oil brings you the best of Fish Oil and Astaxanthin with its dual-action formulation that supports the protection and maintenance of a healthy heart.
FactMed provides MD-approved analysis to help both patients, researchers, and physicians accurately assess the risk profile for more than 20,000 different pharmaceutical products. The below report offers compiled information from Food & Drug Administration and FactMed user submissions. Between January 2004 and October 2012, 1 individuals taking MEGA RED FISH OIL SUPPLEMENT reported ACNE to the FDA. A total of 1 MEGA RED FISH OIL SUPPLEMENT drug adverse event reaction reports were made with the FDA during this time period. Often the FDA only receives reports of the most critical and severe cases; these numbers may therefore underrepresent the complication rate of the medication.
