Krill is the same fat fish oil but is a source of better quality because perishable astaxanthin protected fats and phospholipids massively increase fat absorption .

Krill oil is up to 48 times more potent than fish oil . This means that the amount of krill oil is less need to take the fish oil , as confirmed by the study " Metabolic effects of krill oil are Essentially Similar to Those of fish oil but at lower dose of EPA and DHA, in healthy volunteers "published in the Journal Lipids .

Krill feed on plankton, where gets its nutrients. Their habitat is the ocean , between 3000 and 4000 meters deep, where there cold and total darkness and under the pressure of a great mass of ocean water. As you have been observed breeding in one of the purest areas of the planet .

Krill are also far more sustainable as a source of food for fish, this is because it is the largest biomass on the planet , what makes krill harvesting is one of the most sustainable practices.

Krill oil contains phospholipids, thus the omega-3 fatty acids are already in the form necessary for our body to use . This bioavailability means that krill oil is absorbed much faster and can cross the blood-brain barrier , so get to exercise their beneficial action in the brain.

Krill oil also has antioxidant properties , including krill found antioxidants vitamin E, beta carotene and carotenoids such as astaxanthin and canthaxanthin. also contains small amounts of omega -6 and omega-9 . The ratio omega-3 omega - 6 is 15:1. This relationship , in the Western world, often , is very unbalanced in favor of omega 6.

MegaRed Krill oil , thanks to its content in DHA and EPA, and its own biochemical nature , is shown , along with a healthy diet , useful to help improve lipid profile in the blood and contribute to the maintenance of good cardiovascular health , while , because it contains DHA , may help to maintain normal brain function and vision .
