Fish oil has many benefits and has been incorporated into many diets, including those designed for the support of blood pressure, lipid and sugar balance. Red krill oil might just be the next big thing; its benefits range from improved joint health and mobility, to learning and concentration; from being a pre-menstrual support, to supporting cardiovascular health. Here are eight reasons why you should include krill oil in your diet.
1. Unique Composition supports Digestion
Red Super Krill provides the highly absorbable, naturally occurring phospholipid form of omega 3 fatty acids. Phospholipids dissolve easily in both fat and water, which supports your body’s digestive system. This benefits anyone with digestive problems (including indigestion), anyone who has had their gall bladder removed, or anyone with a sluggish liver or problems digesting fats.
2. Minimal Odour and Doesn’t Cause Burping
Unlike a lot of fish oils, Red Super Krill has no fishy aftertaste or burping. This is because the omega 3s from phospholipids are water soluble, meaning they don’t hang around on top of the stomach. Fish oil also contains omega 3 but in a triglyceride form, which some people can’t digest as well – if you find you get fishy burps, reflux, or nausea, try krill oil instead.
3. Supports Menstrual Health
The symptoms surrounding menstruation are varied and diverse, encompassing decreased energy levels, moodiness and stress, breast tenderness and even bloating. These symptoms boil down to a hormonal imbalance that occurs in most women a few days before their cycle begins. The phospholipids in krill oil help to support healthy hormone production, easing the unpleasant symptoms that many women experience monthly.
4. Rich in Antioxidants
Naturally rich in astaxanthin, Red Super Krill oil provides potent antioxidant protection and supports optimal health and wellbeing. Astaxanthin is shown to be 300 times more potent than Vitamin E & A and helps support cell membranes deal with free-radical damage. It also helps to keep Red Super Krill fresh for longer.
5. Better Absorption
Red Super Krill offers superior absorption of omega 3 naturally, due to its phospholipid form – this means that your body can reap more of its benefits. Phospholipids can go directly to the cell membranes and are therefore better utilised in the body.
Omega 3s’ EPA and DHA support cardiovascular health. Healthy levels of both EPA and DHA found in krill oil are strongly linked to better cardiovascular health and mental performance. Think of omega 3 as fuel for the brain and Red Super Krill as the ultimate source of that brain food.
7. 9x Stronger than Standard Fish Oil
Red Super Krill (750mg) is 9x stronger than standard fish oil. That means that only one soft gel is required daily to receive the same benefits for stiff joint and muscle symptoms. Not only is krill oil more convenient, but it’s also more cost effective. This is because our body uses omega 3s from Red Super Krill more efficiently than some other sources.
8. Sustainable Source
Red Super Krill is found in the natural, pristine waters of the Antarctic Ocean and is sourced from an abundant and sustainable resource, which is strongly regulated by the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR). Using the best scientific information available, CCAMLR ensures the Antarctic eco-system remains bountiful and undisrupted.
While they may be tiny in size, krill are big in health benefits. Adding a Red Super Krill supplement into your diet is a convenient way to get the essential fatty acids you need for optimal health and wellbeing.
