Omega-3s from food have been acknowledged by doctors for a long time as a vital part of a healthy diet. But there has been a lot of debate regarding the efficacy of omega-3 supplements and whether or not they have the same benefits as omega-3 from food. Recent research studies conducted over long periods of time with thousands of participants have helped shine a light on the usefulness of supplementation, notably showing a 50% reduction of fatal heart attack risk.1
EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) and DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) are the omega-3s responsible for most of the beneficial effects of essential fatty acids in the body. Fatty acids as phospholipids help the essential elements of omega-3 integrate with the body’s cells.2
Omega-3 have been studied for years for their ability to support healthy mental function. Especially in middle age, omega-3 fatty acids are useful in helping reduce age-related cognitive decline. For people who do not get enough fish in their diet, studies have also shown that taking fish oil for six months can improve memory by as much as 26%.3
Astaxanthin (ASX) is a natural antioxidant and is what gives krill oil its red color. Astaxanthin also protects krill oil from oxidation, so there is no need to add preservatives (and there are less concerns about the product spoiling and becoming unpleasant tasting and having a foul odor). Astaxanthin has also been shown to have a positive impact on the skin and promising potential uses in the dermatology field.4
One benefit of krill oil over fish oil, although not often talked about, is the effect it has on PMS symptoms. Over a three-month period, participants in a study taking krill oil reported significantly fewer complications with PMS and the associated pain with cramping than the participants who took fish oil.5
SUPERBA2 Krill Oil:Derived from sustainably sourced Antarctic krill, SUPERBA2 Kril Oil is a toxin-free and uncontaminated omega-3 oil. Fish oils and other lower-grade krill oils can have a foul odor, unpleasant aftertaste, and can contain toxins and contaminants like mercury depending on where the ingredient is sourced. Sourcing from the pristine waters of the South Ocean near Antarctica, SUPERBA2 Krill oil is clean and independently tested by a third-party for purity.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids (EPA & DHA):EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid) and DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) are long-chain dietary fats that play an important role in many functions of the body and are found all throughout the body, including cell membranes. EPA and DHA are essential for healthy aging and proper function of body cells, and play a key role in anti-inflammatory responses.
Astaxanthin:A carotenoid found in many plants and animals that provides natural antioxidant support, protecting cells from damage and improving the efficiency of certain body functions.
Choline:An organic, water soluble compound, choline is an essential nutrient (although it is neither a vitamin nor a mineral). It functions similarly to vitamin B in the body, and impacts several vital body functions and components, like cell structure, cell communication, the body’s metabolism, DNA synthesis and healthy nervous system function.
As a dietary supplement, take two softgel capsules daily.
