Virgin Krill Oil™ capsules are obtained from tiny, shrimp-like crustaceans krill which are a superb source of omega-3 essential fatty acids.
Virgin Krill Oil™ capsules contain omega-3 in a unique phospholipid form which are believed to be more absorbable than those found in omega-3 fish oil capsules and supplements. Aside from being absorbed and utilised more efficiently, the phospholipids found in Virgin Krill Oil™ mitigate the fishy aftertaste and reflux so often associated with fish oil capsules.
Phospholipids within krill oil are unique molecularly because they closely resemble the structure of the cell walls thus allowing the omega-3's to enter every cell within the body. Krill Oil capsules are often referred to as red krill oil due to the content of astaxanthin which gives it the colour. Astaxanthin found in krill oil capsules protects the omega-3 fatty acids from degradation. Fish oil capsules on the other hand have to have added antioxidants such as vitamin E.
