Neptune Krill Oil

[Support Your Protective Cell Membranes | Multiple Benefits of Krill]
[Krill Oil Antioxidant Value | Side Effects of Krill Oil | References]

Neptune Krill Oil

  • Protection for a Healthy Heart, Joints and Other Body Systems.
  • Studies show anti-aging benefits and krill oil makes women feel younger.
  • Eases PMS Symptoms.

In human studies, Antarctic Pure Neptune Krill Oil™ supplementation demonstrates anti-aging characteristics, makes women feel younger, demonstrates anti-wrinkle fighting power, supports healthy joints, the heart, lipid and blood sugar levels, energy production, athletic performance and liver function, and eases women's PMS symptoms.

Neptune Krill Oil™ is the first product featuring phospholipids specially integrated with omega-3 essential fatty acids for building healthy cell membranes.  Neptune Krill Oil™ also provides antioxidant protection. When comparing krill oil vs fish oil, your doctor will consider that the EPA and DHA in krill oil is phospholipid bound versus fish oil which is triglyceride bound.  Thus the omega-3 components in krill oil are much more bioavailable.

Essential fatty acids are enormously important to your health. They are the building blocks for phospholipids, and phospholipids are the building blocks for your cell membranes - the protective layer and gatekeeper of your cells. A good essential fatty acid balance provides building blocks for healthy cells, but an imbalance can lead to critical health concerns.

Support Your Protective Cell Membranes

Antarctic Pure Neptune Krill Oil™ is the only product to boast significant health­inducing potencies from three different important nutritional categories: omega­3 fatty acids, phospholipids and antioxidants. These three nutrients work together to support healthy cell membranes, joints, the heart and many other body systems. And Neptune Krill Oil eases PMS symptoms for women.

Multiple Benefits of Krill

Neptune Krill Oil™ has many benefits. Unlike fish oil products, Neptune Krill Oil™ doesn't contain dangerous levels of mercury or lead, doesn't go rancid quickly and has a clean, fresh taste.

Made from hearty krill, shrimp-like crustaceans that thrive in the harsh Antarctic waters, Neptune Krill Oil™ is the only product to contain phospholipids specially integrated with omega-3 essential fatty acids.  This unique structure provides important cell membrane building blocks in the ratios used by the body and may be far better utilized than standalone phospholipids or omega-3 products.  The result: stronger cell membranes that function better to maintain your health. 

The desirable composition of Neptune Krill Oil™, high in omega-3 essential fatty acids, also provides a healthy balance.  High levels of omega-6 fatty acids, such as from processed foods, enable your cell membranes to initiate over production of certain prostaglandins that can lead to cellular irritation, heart system imbalances and other concerns. But omega-3 fatty acids can reverse that trend. Omega-3 fatty acids such as DHA and EPA (docosahexaenoic and eicosapentaenoic acids) compete with arachidonic acid for building blocks, such as the COX-2 enzyme, and can instead lead to balanced levels of the many different types of prostaglandins. The result: cellular comfort, heart health and many other healthy body systems.

Anarctic Neptune Krill Oil™ also contains natural antioxidants, which are cell membrane protectors. Each serving contains 100 IU of vitamin A and a very high level, 1.5 mg, of astaxanthin, an immune-supporting carotenoid, which can be used to guard your cell membranes from free radical damage.

Krill Oil Antioxidant Value

The Krill Oil antioxidant values shown below were obtained by evaluating leading national brand products in order to measure their antioxidant potency using the ORAC method.1  ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity.  In direct ORAC comparisons - milligram for milligram - the value of Krill Oil was found to be 48 times that of fish oil and 34 times that of Coenzyme Q10.  The chart shows a comparison of ORAC values for krill oil vs fish oil and other antioxidants.

Side Effects of Krill Oil

Omega-3 Fatty Acids - A recent review on the safety of omega-3 fatty acids by the US Food and Drug Administration concluded that a daily intake of EPA and DHA of up to 3 g is “generally recognized as safe”2. Dosages as high as 3 g to 8 g of omega 3 fatty acids per day (from 10 g to 27 g fish oil) show virtually no significant adverse effects3. The most common side effects observed with fish oil capsule consumption are complaints of a fishy taste and belching of fish flavors. At relatively higher doses, as with any oil, gastrointestinal complaints including loose stools have been reported.

Although there has never been a reported case of clinical bleeding attributed to fish oil consumption even during surgery, obvious consideration should be given to patients with bleeding disorders and patients taking blood thinners or anticoagulants 4,5,6.

Krill Oil - Long-term Krill Oil safety has been evaluated with a 6-month animal study using mice.7  Six months in mice lifespan is equivalent to 27 human years.  The mice were fed krill oil amounting to 16.6% of their daily diet. Human equivalent dosage corresponds to 23.1 grams of krill oil (for a 70kg or 154 pound person) or 7 – 11 times the recommended dose. No adverse effects were reported. No pathological findings upon examination of brain, lungs, heart, stomach, pancreas, liver, kidneys, uterus / prostate, intestine, or skin. 

The results of the present toxicity assessment confirm that Neptune Krill Oil can be considered as safe for human consumption even at 2 to 3 times the highest recommended dose.

Note: People with a known allergy to fish or seafood were not tested in this study. The precaution remains that in the case of fish or seafood allergies, professional allergy testing is advised prior to consumption of Antarctic Pure Neptune Krill Oil.
