What is Krill Oil?
Krill oil is a rich source of healthy omega-3 fatty acids, phospholipids, and powerful antioxidants.
Krill are tiny, shrimp-like crustaceans that are found in all the world’s oceans. They are one of the most plentiful species on the planet and despite their small size, they play a large role in the Earth's marine ecosystem.
Many animals consume krill as their main food source including fish, baleen whales, birds, sea lions, and seals. The word krill is Norwegian in origin and literally means “whale food” or “fry of fish”.
Krill oil is a supplement derived from krill. Like fish oil, krill oil contains high levels of omega-3 fatty acids - eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). The oil also contains astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant that gives krill their red color, and the essential nutrient choline.
What are the Benefits of Antarctic Krill Oil?
Krill oil offers a wide range of benefits. It protects the body against disease and supports the healthy function of the heart, brain, joints and skin.
The main benefits of krill oil come from its omega-3 fatty acids, which are very important for maintaining good health. These fatty acids play a critical role in brain function, heart health, and overall well-being.
The benefits of krill oil include:
- IMPROVES HEART HEALTH: Krill oil has been shown to have a positive effect on heart health. It can lower blood pressure, reduce triglyceride levels, improve cholesterol, and promote blood circulation. Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to reduce inflammation and improve blood vessel function. This can help reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, and other cardiovascular conditions.
- SUPPORTS BRAIN FUNCTION: Omega-3’s are essential for brain health and development. Studies have shown that these fatty acids can improve cognitive function, memory, and mood. Krill oil also contains phosphatidylcholine, a type of phospholipid that is necessary for brain function. Phosphatidylcholine is a precursor to acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that is critical for learning and memory.
- REDUCES INFLAMMATION: Krill oil has anti-inflammatory properties. Its omega-3’s along with astaxanthin help reduce inflammation in the body and lower the risk of chronic diseases. One study found that taking krill oil for just four weeks decreased levels of the inflammatory marker C-reactive protein (CRP) by 19.3%. Another study found that krill oil reduced joint pain and stiffness in people with arthritis.
- RICH IN ANTIOXIDANTS: Krill oil contains one of the most powerful antioxidants in nature, astaxanthin. An antioxidant is a compound that helps the body protect its cells against oxidative stress and disease. Astaxanthin has been shown to be up to 5 times more potent than beta-carotene, 6,000 times more potent than vitamin C, and 800 times more potent than CoQ10.
- IMPROVES SKIN HEALTH: Skin is best nourished from the inside out. The nutrients in krill oil are exactly what your body needs to have healthy skin. The omega-3s protect against sun damage while astaxanthin improves skin elasticity and reduces wrinkles. One study found that taking krill oil supplements for 12 weeks improved skin texture, hydration, and elasticity in those with dry skin. Another study found that astaxanthin supplements improved skin moisture and reduced the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
- RELIEVES PMS SYMPTOMS: Premenstrual syndrome (PMS) is a common condition that affects many women, causing symptoms such as bloating, mood swings, and cramps. Several studies have shown that omega-3s can reduce PMS symptoms such as breast tenderness, bloating, and mood swings. One study found that taking krill oil supplements for three months reduced the severity of PMS symptoms, both emotional and physical.
How is Antler Farms® Antarctic Krill Oil Processed?
Antler Farms® Antarctic Krill Oil is made from wild caught krill in the deep blue waters of the Antarctic Ocean.
Our krill oil originates from a pristine place - the Antarctic Ocean. Here, our krill is sustainable sourced and fresh harvested from krill that thrive in their remote, natural habitat.
Krill is caught via state of the art and highly specialized krill fishing vessels. These boats use a unique trawl system that only captures krill and eliminates bycatch. The krill are pumped directly from the ocean to the vessel’s on board processing facility. Here, the oil extraction occurs through mechanical pressing within a few hours. This ensures that our krill oil is as fresh as possible and that all the beneficial nutrients stay intact.
Fishing in the Antarctic is managed by the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR). This international convention was set up to conserve and protect the Antarctic ecosystems.
Antler Farms® Antarctic Krill Oil has no detectable traces of mercury, lead, and PCBs. There are no artificial flavors, colors, or additives. It is dairy free, gluten free, soy free and GMO free.
Krill Oil vs. Fish Oil - What's the Difference?
Both krill oil and fish oil are rich sources of omega-3 fatty acids.
However, there are some differences that may make one supplement a better choice than the other, depending on your individual needs.
Krill oil is unique in that much of its fatty acids are stored as phospholipids, a type of fat that is easily absorbed by the body. Studies have shown that krill oil is more bioavailable because of this, leading to higher levels of omega-3 in the bloodstream. Most fish oil primarily contains triglycerides, which are harder for the body to digest. This means that you can achieve the same benefits with a smaller dose of krill oil than you would need with fish oil.
Secondly, krill oil contains high levels of the antioxidant astaxanthin, which protects the body from oxidative damage caused by free radicals. Krill oil also contains choline, an essential nutrient for the structure of cell membranes.
