SANDERSON™ Superior Red Krill Oil 1500mg is rich in phospholipid bound omega-3s that offer greater bio efficiency and better utilization in the body than other forms. Omega-3 phospholipids from krill do not give any aftertaste, because they are water-soluble and so rapidly digested in the stomach. Krill oil has been shown in research to be an effective means of managing healthy cholesterol levels. It has also been demonstrated as a superior support for joint comfort. The antioxidant Astaxanthin which gives krill oil its characteristic red colour is known to cross the blood – brain barrier making krill a potent aid in maintaining healthy brain function. SANDERSON™ Superior Red Krill Oil undergoes minimal processing at low temperatures to reduce any risk of oxidation. The clear red colour is a sign of fresh krill oil. Our oil undergoes unique rapid ship-board processing to maintain freshness. The high astaxanthin content also helps protect our krill oil from oxidation.
What is Krill Oil?
Krill oil is made from krill, a small, shrimp-like crustacean that inhabits the cold ocean areas of the world. Despite their small size, krill make up the largest animal biomass on the planet. There are approximately 500 million tons of krill roaming in northern seas alone, and larger populations in the southern ocean.
Krill oil, like fish oil, contains omega-3 fats such as eicosapentanoic acid (EPA) and docosahexanoic acid (DHA). However, in fish oil, these omega-3 fats are found in the triglyceride form. In krill oil, they are found in a double chain phospholipid structure, the same form as the fats in human cell walls.
Krill oil also contains vitamin E, vitamin A, vitamin D and astaxanthin, which is a potent anti-oxidant. The anti-oxidant potency of krill oil is, in terms of ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) values, 48 times more potent than fish oil. The astaxanthin found in krill oil supports resistance against ultraviolet light and UV-induced skin damage.
The Key Benefits of Krill Oil
The benefits of Omega 3 attributed to fish oil also apply to krill oil, including cardio-vascular health care, joint comfort and mobility, healthy skin, and support during PMS.
In particular, krill oil has been shown in research to be more effective than ordinary fish in supporting healthy levels of HDL and LDL cholesterol.
The superior bioavailability characteristics of krill oil including its ability to be absorbed by the brain allows krill oil to support brain development, normal cognition, memory and other mental faculties more effectively than fish oil.
Krill Oil Contains Phospholipid Omega-3
A biochemical property of krill oil is that at the molecular level a phosphate molecule is attached. The presence of phosphate molecules classes krill oil omega-3’s as phospholipids.
Phospholipids significantly increase the absorption or bioavailability of krill oil omega-3’s. This means the beneficial omega-3 from krill oil is more readily available to important areas of the body such as brain tissue.
One advantage of the high bioavailability of krill oil when compared to fish oil, is that you need less krill oil to achieve the same benefits of omega-3. For example, dosage of omega-3 rich fish oil may be up to 5 grams, compared to only 1 gram of high quality krill oil.
Phosphatidyl choline is the main phospholid found in pure krill oil. Choline may help the development of a growing brain. Choline may also support cognition; memory and the ability to learn.
Krill Oil Contains Astazanthin
Unlike fish oil, krill oil contains an important and powerful antioxidant called astaxanthin. Quality krill oil supplements will contain high levels of axtaxanthin. Astaxanthin as an antioxidant, helps to make krill oil less perishable, unlike fish oil which is easily damaged when it is exposed to air. The astaxanthin in krill also helps to make it more effective in maintaining joint comfort and mobility, as well as enhancing the neuro-protective qualities of the oil.
Krill Oil has no fishy aftertaste
Omega 3 phospholipids from krill do not give any aftertaste, because they are water-soluble and therefore rapidly digested in the stomach. Other forms of omega 3 like ordinary fish oil are hydrophobic and separate in water: in the stomach they float and therefore cause unpleasant fishy burps and aftertaste. This is why fish oils are often “deodorize” with added ingredients like citrus oils, they are not truly reflux-free. The digestibility of krill means it requires no additives, it is naturally ‘reflux-free’.
