Krill Oil vs Fish Oil
Fish have been the human populations’ best source of Omega-3 since cavemen first began fishing - although of course, they didn't know it! Over time, increasing knowledge of Omega-3’s health-loving benefits have resulted in the development of numerous products, most of them based on fish oil, all aiming to give us the feeling of an energised, vitalised system. Many of us, however, are not aware of the necessary process that fish oil must be submitted to before it’s suitable for human consumption. The process of chemically removing contaminants, such as mercury, fundamentally changes its form, leaving it far less absorbable by the human body.

The desire for an alternative has made krill oil the Omega-3 supplement of the future. Harvested from deep, pristine Antarctic waters, far away from fishing channels or shipping routes, the Euphausia Superba krill also have a naturally short lifespan. Combined, these factors significantly reduce any chance of exposure to pollution. They’re also incredibly plentiful, forming the largest collective animal weight in the world, and at the bottom of the food chain, they are nature’s own source of Omega-3. Furthermore, their oil has been shown to provide similar effects to fish oil, even when the EPA and DHA dose is lower. Taking Krill Oil supplements will provide you with all fish oil’s benefits and more, but by going directly to the source, you’re getting the Omega-3s you need at their purest.
Omega-3 fatty acids, including DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), are absolutely essential - but our bodies cannot produce them. Historically consumed by eating fish, but now available in Antarctic Krill Oil, they have innumerable benefits, powering up your whole body. Both EPA & DHA contribute to healthy blood pressure and triglyceride, a type of fat that is needed in low amounts for energy. Meanwhile, DHA individually helps maintain both brain function and eyes.*Omega-3s generally have also been linked to an improved response to an intense workout, as well as addressing sugar-levels.

Antarctic Krill Oil also contains some unique dynamic compounds that cannot be found in regular fish oil. Choline, a structural component of fat, is a water soluble nutrient. Related to health-giving B vitamins, dietary supplementation has been linked to improved cognitive performance and mood lifting effects, as well as managing energy levels and metabolising lipids. Astaxanthin, an organic pigment responsible for cooked seafood and the capsule’s red colour, has a powerfully protective effect on your internal Omega-3 levels. It has a particular molecular shape that allows it to fit and accumulate inside the cell membrane, forming a barrier against reactive oxygen species and free radicals. It’s also known to be good for your skin, eyesight and heart.
