Antarctic Pure Krill Oil - The Ultimate Omega-3
One of the most common health food buzzwords these days is "omega-3 fatty acids." Eggs, fish oils, and flax seeds have all been seen as good omega-3 foods, but the ultimate omega-3 source is likely something you haven't heard of: Antarctic Pure Krill Oil.
With the highest concentration of omega-3 oils and the highest absorption rate in the world, krill oil is unlike anything else. If you're interested in staying healthy and making sure you have enough omega-3s, Antarctic Purest Krill Oil is the best product for the job.
What Are Omega-3s
With all the hype about omega-3 fatty acids, it's likely that nobody ever explained what omega-3s really are or why they're so important. In general, most fatty acids are used by the body to store energy. These are known as triglycerides, and they're extremely useful. However, what most people don't know is that there's another type of fatty acid, known as phospholipids, and these serve a number of purposes. They include: * Building the structures of cells and organelles like mitochondria * Helping transport molecules through cell membranes * Moving proteins where they need to go within the cell.
In other words, the functioning of the cells in the body wouldn't happen without phospholipids. Omega-3s can be found in phospholipid and triglyceride forms. What's special about Omega-3 is that it is a polyunsaturated fat which can be easily converted into energy or other structural needs. In addition, Omega-3s can't be synthesized by the human body - you need to include them in your diet. Many studies have been done on the health benefits of omega-3s, notably on EPA and DHA, found in fish.
The Inuit peoples, who live in the Arctic and whose diets contain a lot of omega-3-rich fish, almost never suffer from heart disease. This has led to the startling discovery that omega-3 fatty acids lower bad cholesterol, lower blood pressure, reduce heart arrhythmias, and improve blood flow. In addition, omega-3s have been shown to have a number of other benefits, including:
- Preventing age-related blindness due to macular degeneration * Improving immune functions * Reducing arthritic pain and maintaining healthy joints
- Potentially neutralizing neurotoxins that often lead to brain diseases like Parkinson's or Alzheimer's. * Increasing energy * Balancing blood sugar levels
- Maintaining a healthy liver
- Relieving normal PMS symptoms
- Helping your skin stay healthy
A list like this may seem unbelievable, but keep in mind that omega-3s are a) necessary for our body's most foundational cellular processes and b) completely dependent on diet. If you don't eat healthily enough or take the right supplements, you suffer the consequences. It is important to note that most of these health benefits come from the phospholipid forms rather than the triglyceride forms of omega-3.
Why Antarctic Pure Krill Oil
- Omega-3s such as DHA and EPA in krill oil are bound to phospholipids instead of triglycerides
- Krill is caught in the pristine, unpolluted Antarctic Circle
- Higher concentration of omega-3s than any other fish oil
- Contains potent quantities of the antioxidant Astaxanthin Unlike many of the other omega-3 products on the market, Antarctic
Pure Krill Oil contains omega-3 in its phospholipid form, rather than the triglyceride. This means that the omega-3s in krill oil are not only highly-concentrated, they're also highly effective! The body is also more able to absorb phospholipids than triglycerides. In comparison to most fish oils (which contain triglyceride omega-3s), for which only about 65% of the omega-3 fatty acids are absorbed by the body, Antarctic Purest Krill Oil has a 95% absorption rate.
The reason krill oil is such a concentrated source of omega-3s lies in its position at the bottom of the food chain. Omega-3s are originally found in plankton, tiny ocean-borne microorganisms. Krill eat the plankton, then small fish eat the krill, then larger fish eat the smaller fish.Because the krill is closest to the plankton in the food chain, it has the highest concentration of usable omega-3s. In addition, krill are harvested from the pristine waters of the Antarctic, ensuring their purity. Our Antarctic Purest Krill Oil maintains food-grade quality from harvesting to finished product, unlike many other fish oils. As Steve Bruner, the founder of Natural Biology says, "Krill oil is one of the most exciting developments in Omega 3 research because it provides us with the ultimate Omega 3 experience. The critical difference in krill oils is where the krill are harvested, how they are harvested, and the ultimate purity of the oil."
In addition to being the best source for omega 3s in the world, krill also contains high levels of the antioxidant Astaxanthin. As a strong antioxidant, Astanxanthin fights cancer-causing free radicals in the body, as well as:
- Protects cell and organelle membranes from oxidative stress
- Enhances eye health
- Improves memory
- Helps keep blood sugar levels balanced Clearly
Antarctic Purest Krill Oil is the next step up from standard fish oils. With so many omega-3 benefits, a lot of added pluses in the form of Astaxanthin, and very few recorded side effects, krill oil is the future of omega-3 supplements. Available in pill form, Antarctic Purest Krill Oil offers a well-balanced, efficient approach to heart health, and benefits many other systems in your body as well.
