Product Description for Nature’s Own Ultra Krill Oil 1000mg 30 Capsules
Krill oil is derived from Antarctic Krill (Euphausia Superba), which is an abundant source of omega 3 essential fatty acids.
Krill accumulate omega 3 by feeding on omega 3 rich microscopic algae. This algae also provides krill with a robust source of the antioxidant astaxanthin, which is responsible for its distinct red colour.
Krill oil has a unique molecular structure as the omega-3 fatty acids are incorporated into phospholipids whereas in fish oil the omega-3 fatty acids are mostly present as triglycerides.
