Make Your Heart Happy with Krill Oil
A happy heart is a healthy heart: Improve your heart and overall health with Krill Oil, a small pink crustacean similar to shrimp that is found in cold ocean waters off the coasts of Antarctica, Japan and Canada. All krill used for krill oil supplements are harvested out of the open ocean and used for krill oil capsules, food for home aquariums, and as a human food source.
What is in Krill Oil?
Krill Oil contains three main ingredients:
Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (EPA and DHA)
Phospholipid-derived fatty acids (PLFA)
A carotenoid antioxidant called Astaxanthin
Omega-3 fatty acids, specifically EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids, are found primarily in certain fish that provide big health benefits. Omega-3 supplements can help lower elevated triglyceride levels which in turn reduces the risk of heart disease. Omega-3 can also ease symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis, depression, asthma, ADHD and Alzheimer’s disease to improve your overall health.
Phospholipid-derived fatty acids are important to cellular function including building and protecting the cell membrane and regulating cellular transport throughout the body.
Astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant that has supports cardiovascular, skin and joint health along with brain and immune function.
What are the Benefits of Krill Oil?
Krill oil and fish oil are often viewed as the same supplement but krill oil offers several benefits that you cannot get with fish oil. The most recognizable being that it doesn’t taste fishy when taken because krill oil is absorbed more readily in the human body than fish oil.
Notable benefits include:
Promote cardiovascular health
Prevent and reduce inflammation
Relieve arthritis symptoms (reduce stiffness and swelling)
Ease symptoms of women’s menstrual cycles
Help alleviate depression
The benefits listed are just some of the many benefits that krill oil supplements offer to consumers. Krill oil has shown increased cardiovascular and immune function that allow consumers to live healthier and happier lives with the help of this easily accessible supplement.
