Krill | How a Tiny Crustacean Can Protect Your Heart

Krill | How a Tiny Crustacean Can Protect Your Heart

It’s well known that omega-3 fatty acids are essential to our bodies. We can’t survive without them. They’re especially important for protecting the heart. Having enough EPA and DHA omega-3s in our red blood cell membranes – or a healthy Omega-3 Index – is crucial for heart health.

Although this omega-3 science is decades old, most of us still aren’t getting enough in our diets. We need to eat more oily fish, but researchers find that dietary habits are difficult to change.

That’s why many of us take omega-3 supplements, especially if we want targeted support for cardiovascular function, brain health, and cognitive function/memory.

Already have a bad taste in your mouth? Fish oil can do that. Yet, it’s not the only source of essential omega-3s. Sustainably harvested krill oil provides the omega-3s we need without a bad taste, concerns of mercury contamination, or impact on fisheries.

Read on to learn how a tiny, shrimp-like crustacean can protect our hearts, mental health, brain function, and much more.

Omega-3s Benefit Us in Many Ways

We need three types of omega-3s: eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), and alpha-linolenic (ALA). Omega-3 fatty acids are an integral part of our cell membranes that help regulate blood clotting, blood pressure, and inflammation. They’re required to maintain normal brain function. Studies continue to show numerous benefits of Omega-3s.

While ALA is necessary and helps us stay healthy, most cardiovascular research centers around EPA and DHA, which come from fatty fish. To get enough EPA and DHA, we need to eat a minimum of two servings a week of fish like trout, salmon, herring, and mackerel. Many studies show that consuming more than the minimum omega-3s provides additional protection.

Omega-3 Phospholipid with 100% pure Superba™ krill oil provides the EPA and DHA we need to protect our healthy heart, eyes, liver, brain, skin, and joints. Additionally, phospholipids boost the Omega-3 Index by helping omega-3s get into the blood cell membranes.

This supplement also contains choline, an essential nutrient that promotes heart health, optimal cholesterol and lipid metabolism, nerve signaling, and muscle function. The powerful antioxidant astaxanthin both preserves the krill oil and supports our immune system, circulation, and cardiovascular function.

Krill are sustainable harvested in cold Antarctic waters

Sustainable, Tasteless and Mercury-Free

Together, the nutrients in Omega-3 Phospholipid promote whole body, heart, and mental health. Plus, krill oil is tasteless and typically free of mercury and heavy metals because tkrill are low on the food chain and live in cold Antarctic waters.

Furthermore, Euphausia superba (Antarctic) krill oil is harvested sustainably in one of the most precautionary and sustainable fisheries in the world. (Learn more about the eco-harvesting practices of Antarctic krill oil here.) This is great news as more people increase their omega-3 intakes.

Realize you probably need to boost your Omega-3 Index? Plan some meals with fish, oysters, muscles, lobster, or crab and supplement with Omega-3 Phospholipid. Your heart and whole body will thank you.

Product Description

Omega-3 Phospholipid 500mg (100% Pure Krill Oil) is ideal for adults interested in both heart health and whole body health.*

Omega-3 Phospholipid features 100% pure Superba™ krill oil, a naturally sourced ingredient with omega-3 fatty acids in the highly bioavailable phospholipid form along with astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant that acts as a naturally sourced preservative.*

Superba™ krill oil is clinically shown to increase blood levels of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids. These omega-3 fatty acids are critical for a wide range of biochemical processes involved in heart health, a healthy inflammatory response, immune defense, memory and cognitive function, and cellular health.*

Omega-3 Phospholipid may help reduce coronary heart disease risk.** It supports heart health, in part, by helping to maintain a healthy Omega-3 Index. The Omega-3 Index is an emerging biomarker for heart health and reflects the EPA and DHA content of red blood cell membranes that results from the long-term intake of these omega-3 fatty acids.*

Omega-3 Phospholipid also helps ensure an optimal intake of omega-3 fatty acids critical for cell membranes to take in nutrients, expel waste products, and activate cell signaling pathways. Omega-3 fatty acids also serve as building blocks for bioactive compounds that promote a healthy inflammatory response. Inside cells, omega-3 fatty acids play a role in numerous biological pathways involved in immune defense, lipid balance and other functions.*

 

Superba™ is a trademark of the Aker Group.

**Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. One serving of Omega-3 Phospholipid provides 0.176 grams of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids.
