Try Krill Oil

If you are feeling worn-out; are a little stiff; have a few average body aches and pain; and have trouble reading small print without getting a headache these days, try krill oil. Krill oil is rapidly becoming the sought after nutritional supplement for inflammation and general anti-aging.* 100% pure krill oil has very robust antioxidants containing Omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) and astaxanthin.  Krill oil contains omega-3’s and is nearly 100% absorbable, which makes it more sufficient at lower doses than fish oil. Krill oil is also more shelf-stable and does not become rancid as fish oil does. Additionally, there is no distasteful fishy odor or “fish burps” associated with krill oil. But what are the health benefits?

Krill supports general heart health and triglyceride levels.* It also aids in improving brain health and cognitive function, minimizing the symptoms of arthritis, and research shows it may reduce PMS symptoms.* The astaxanthin that is contained in the krill provides support for eye fatigue (reducing eyestrain), cognitive ability, muscle and joint (is considered one of the most powerful anti- inflammation supplements) along with support for skin.* Another benefit is that many types of fish and fish oils contain mercury and other heavy metals- some may be over the acceptable and safe limit. Krill is not prone to this type of contamination since it is harvested from the untouched and pristine Antarctic waters. Similarly, krill is also far more sustainable as a food source than fish. Krill harvesting is closely monitored and carefully regulated to ensure its environmental sustainability. The Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) is an international environmental organization comprised of 25 countries with a mission to preserve marine life and the environmental integrity within and surrounding Antarctica.

With today’s continuing advancement in technology, we are able to protect, expand, and support health from the inside out. Our nutrition becomes critical as new research focuses on health at the cellular level. Astaxanthin is a carotenoid molecule from the same family as beta-carotene, lycopene, and zeaxanthin, though astaxanthinWhen we are under stress and during the normal aging process, our bodies may lose the ability to produce high levels of the antioxidants that are produced internally when we are subjected to environmental factors such as pollution, toxins, and processed food. When searching for a good quality krill oil, read the label and be sure it contains 100% krill oil and a significant amount of astaxanthin (1-2 mg per serving) to help support overall health, slowdown cellular aging, and manage inflammation.
