Krill Oil From The Arctic

Krill Oil is the oil extracted from a species of krill known as Euphausia Superba using different processes. Krill can be found in most oceans in the world but is more popularly harvested in the Antarctic waters. Krill contains the essential fatty acids called n-3 or more commonly known as Omega-3. In reality, the source of Omega-3 in fish comes from krill since most marine life dines on them. Because of this Krill has been placed near the bottom of the food chain and is important in the balance of the marine ecosystem. Understanding this, different countries like United States, Japan, The European Community, Australia, South Africa, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and many more formed a treaty organization named the Commission of Antarctic Marine Living Resources or CCAMLR (camel-lahr). This organization is tasked to manage and regulate the harvesting of marine creatures in the Antarctic waters including Krill.

Antarctic Krill Oil contains two major components;

1.) Omega-3 fatty acids – this essential fatty acids is known to help in reducing the risk of getting certain cancers like prostate cancer in men and breast cancer in women and increase muscle mass and appetite for cancer patients.

The DHA in Omega-3 can make Krill Oil supplements as brain vitamins since it can help enhance memory and increase brain activity in the aging community. It can help prevent or reduce the chances of getting dementia and other neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s disease. For those having heart ailments, Krill Oil’s more effective dose of Omega-3 will aid in reducing the mortality rate of patients. Even acquiring this dreaded disease will be less likely for those consistently taking Krill Oil.

2.) Astaxanthin – is an antioxidant that can also be found in microalgae, yeast, salmon, trout, ship, crayfish and even the feathers of birds. An antioxidant stops the occurrence of a chemical reaction called oxidation in the skin. This reaction creates free radicals that damage the skin. Astaxanthin can also cross the brain-blood barrier to help prevent damage from free radicals in the central nervous system including the eyes and the brain.
