Description

Antioxidant Rich Omega

Krill Omega with Astaxanthin combines krill oil rich in omega-3 fatty acids with astaxanthin to enhance the body’s antioxidant status and foster a healthy inflammatory response.* Providing generous amounts of astaxanthin at 12 mg per serving, this formula utilizes Antarctic krill extract, delivering highly unsaturated EPA and DHA bound to phospholipids.

These phospholipids closely resemble human brain phospholipids, facilitating effective delivery and utilization of omega-3 fatty acids. Acting as essential components of cell membranes, phospholipids support cell function and serve as carriers for EPA and DHA. The structure of astaxanthin aids in interacting with cell membranes, promoting their integrity, and contributing to antioxidant support.

What is Astaxanthin? 

Astaxanthin is extracted from micro-algae with a solvent-free technology.  Known as Euphausia superba, this micro-algae is fed on by ocean fish like salmon for energy, giving them their deep red flesh.  When consumed, it offers an array of health benefits by supporting cell membranes.

Benefits:

  • Promotes a healthy inflammatory response.*
  • Supports cardiovascular health.*
  • Promotes healthy skin and aging.*
  • Powerful antioxidant activity.*
  • Supports exercise-induced muscle damage.*
  • Supports eye health.*
  • Aids gastrointestinal health.*
  • Astaxanthin is superior to Vitamin C, Vitamin E, CoQ10, lipoic acid, and beta-carotene.*

 

Ingredient Highlights

Astaxanthin supports redox balance by donating electrons, bonding with free radicals, and removing them from cell interiors, enhancing antioxidant activity. It integrates with cellular membranes, reinforcing integrity and antioxidant defenses. Astaxanthin reduces lipid oxidation and promotes thioredoxin reductase and paraoxonase-1 activity in lipid metabolism. Clinical studies demonstrate its ability to lower oxidative stress biomarkers, increase antioxidant markers, and decrease inflammatory mediators, suggesting a potential for a healthy inflammatory response. Astaxanthin inhibits NF-κB signaling, COX-1 enzymes, nitric oxide, and supports Nrf2 expression, PI3K/Akt pathways, and anti-inflammatory actions, contributing to overall homeostasis. Studies show its significant reduction of C-reactive protein levels

.• 880 mg of krill oil per serving from Euphausia superba, rich in easily absorbed omega-3 fatty acids such as EPA and DHA

  • 12 mg of astaxanthin (as AstaREAL®) for redox balance support*

Krill oil, sourced from Antarctic Ocean krill, offers a sustainable omega‑3 fatty acid source rich in EPA, DHA, astaxanthin, and vitamins A and E. Its omega‑3 fatty acids, mainly in phospholipid form, demonstrate enhanced bioavailability, with a small dose yielding comparable effects to fish oil. The phospholipid format influences its utilization, showing preference for phosphatidylcholine incorporation.

EPA and DHA in krill oil support redox balance and a healthy inflammatory response, incorporating into cellular membranes and influencing eicosanoid production for anti‑inflammatory outcomes. Studies suggest krill oil’s benefits, including reduced inflammation, oxidative stress, and improved immune function and lipid profiles.

  • High phospholipid content, with a minimum of 40% phospholipids, predominantly as phosphatidylcholine

What to Avoid

Cautions: Consult with your healthcare provider if you are pregnant, lactating, allergic to shellfish or fish, or have a blood coagulation condition, or are on anticoagulants, or high-dose aspirin. DO NOT TAKE IF YOU HAVE A SHELLFISH ALLERGY

Astaxanthin is very bright red/orange substance and will stain fingers or clothing if opened. 

  **Due to Krill’s heat sensitivity level, we do our best to get it shipped out during the hot summer months.
