Fortified with increased levels of astaxanthin for expanded health benefits
We have increased the amount of the powerful antioxidant astaxanthin in XanthOmega? Krill Oil from 1.5 mg to 12 mg per serving to help achieve optimal benefits from this potent carotenoid.
It would take 8 conventional krill softgels to equal the astaxanthin levels in just 1 XanthOmega softgel!
What are Krill?
Krill are tiny crustaceans found in the sea. They are the world's largest biomass and feed the largest animal, the blue whale. Krill oil extracted from Krill is a unique source of phosphatidyl choline bound to EPA and DHA. This combination confers a faster and more effective delivery of EPA and DHA in the body, and specifically to the brain, through better absorption and transport when compared to the normal triglyceride form found in fish oil.
It is not until recently that this amazing oil has gotten publicity. One of Krill Oil's most talked about recent studies was on its ability to effectively relieve PMS symptoms naturally (see details below).
Krill Oil Can Help Support:
- PMS and Menopause
- Brain function
- Liver function
- Healthy LDL, HDL and triglyceride levels
- Support for the nervous, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, respiratory, reproductive and immune systems
- Anti-inflammation for osteo and rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis, crohn's, asthma
- Skin cancer protection
- Antioxidant protection
- Reproductive health
- Pptimal omega 3: omega 6 ratio
- Athletic endurance and performance
Krill oil also naturally contains several other antioxidants including, canthaxanthin, beta carotene, Vitamin E and all trans-retinol Vitamin A. These antioxidants protect this nutrient dense oil from oxidation. Designs for Health?s Krill Oil was made using a unique cold-extraction process that converts it into a stable oil. This process protects the lipids from alteration and avoids peroxidation. It is free of heavy metals and organohalide pollutants. It is extremely pure. This product does not cause reflux or regurgitation seen with common fish oil supplements.
Krill are tiny crustaceans found in the sea. They are the world?s largest biomass and feed the largest animal, the whale. Krill oil extracted from Krill is a unique source of Phosphatidyl Choline with EPA and DHA bound to it and at the same time a superior delivery of EPA and DHA inside a phospholipid as opposed to a regular triglyceride. This combination confers a faster and more effective delivery of EPA and DHA in the body and specifically to the brain through better absorption and transport. The phospholipids are also bound to a powerful antioxidant, astaxanthin, known to cross the blood brain barrier.
Krill Oil is extracted from the hardy Antarctic krill, a traditional food. Krill Oil is rich in cell membrane building blocks: highly unsaturated phospholipids co-functionalized with Omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) and kept remarkably stable by its natural astaxanthin and flavonoids.
PMS Relief and Krill Oil
A recently published double-blind, controlled, randomized trial on 70 women showed that Krill Oil dramatically improved all emotional PMS symptoms including feeling overwhelmed, anxiety, stress, irritability, and depression. After 45 and 90 days the Krill Oil Krill Oil group on 2 g per day, had statistically significant differences in both emotional and physical symptoms including breast tenderness, joint pain and dysmenorrhea. The fish oil group after 90 days only had statistically significant reduction in weight gain, swelling and abdominal pain.  Study subjects reported using 50% fewer analgesics on a dose of 2 Krill Oil gel caps daily.
