RoyalRed Omega-3 Krill Oil, by Webber Naturals, contains pure Antarctic Krill Oil sourced only from sustainably managed fishery. Krill oil contains omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA. The fatty acids in Krill Oil are in phospholipid form and are therefore easily absorbed. The rich colour in the Krill Oil results from the naturally occurring carotenoid astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant.
Krill are small shrimp-like creatures that live in the oceans and are very low on the food chain. A whale can eat up to 8,000 pounds of krill each day, but you only need one or two capsules per day to make a whale of a difference in your health.
These tiny crustaceans are a superior source of omega-3 oils - the essential fatty acids so important for maintaining our hearts, brains, skin and joints. Flaxseed, cold water fish and fish oils also provide omega-3 fatty acids, but krill oil is the new kid on the block with a few distinct advantages.
Krill oil has a higher concentration of key fatty acids than fish oils, so a smaller daily dose can produce similar results. In krill oil the omega-3’s are already connected to fat molecules like the ones in our bodies - phospholipids - so they are “ready to use” and don’t require any chemical conversion. This may be why krill oil is so effective at reducing inflammation, cholesterol and triglycerides.
Studies have shown that krill oil can support heart, brain and vision health like other omega-3 sources, and it reduces inflammation and related pain especially in the joints. It can ease emotional and physical symptoms of PMS as well as increasing energy levels and mental sharpness. Not bad for tiny crustaceans! And the best part? No fishy aftertaste or fish burps!
Krill also contain astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant that gives them their pink colour. According to tests, krill oil has more concentrated antioxidant power than vitamin E, lutein and lycopene.
Cholesterol: In one study, 120 people were given krill oil, fish oil or a placebo. Krill oil reduced LDL (commonly referred to as “bad”) choles- terol by 34% and increased HDL (“good”) cholesterol by 43.5% com- pared to the placebo. In comparison, fish oil reduced LDL cholesterol by 4.6% and increased HDL cholesterol by 4.2%. Krill also lowered triglycerides.
PMS: Preliminary research suggests krill oil may help reduce symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS).
Arthritis: A study in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition examined krill oil (300 mg daily) compared to a placebo and found that krill oil was effective at reducing arthritis symptoms and inflammation.
