KRILL Oil++ is a pure and natural source of high concentration omega 3 oil, the powerful antioxidant astaxanthin, as well as high levels of phospholipids – a fundamental component of human cell membranes, a high strength formula (500mg) and in an easy-to-swallow gel capsule form.
Antartic Krill Oil is used for the same reasons as cod liver oil, flax oil and other omega 3 fatty acids, but is often favoured because it doesn’t cause fishy burps or an after-taste.
The fact that it contains astaxanthin is also unique. The ultimate antioxidant – researchers have found that it may be more powerful than vitamin E, beta-carotene and lutein.

Antarctic Krill oil capsules – 500mg
Krill oil comes from krill – tiny shrimp-like creatures that live in very cold ocean waters.
Krill oil contains two types of omega-3 fatty acid: eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
EPA and DHA contribute to the normal function of the heart (with a daily intake of 250mg).
DHA and EPA contribute to the maintenance of normal blood pressure (with a daily intake of 3g of EPA and DHA).*
DHA contributes to the maintenance of normal blood triglyceride levels (with a daily intake of 2g of DHA and when taken in combination with EPA).*
DHA contributes to maintenance of normal brain function (with a daily intake of 250mg of DHA).
DHA contributes to maintenance of normal vision (with a daily intake of 250mg of DHA).
*Users should not exceed a supplemental daily intake of 5g of EPA and DHA combined.
Krill oil also contains astaxanthin, as well as phospholipids.
Astaxanthin is a pigment that belongs to a group of chemicals called carotenoids. It occurs naturally in certain algae and causes the pink/red colour of krill. Astaxanthin is used for treating Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, stroke, high cholesterol, age-related macular degeneration (age-related vision loss), and for preventing cancer.
Phospholipids are a type of large group of organic compounds called “lipids” (naturally-occurring molecules). Phospholipids are a major component of all cell membranes.
Unlike some fish oil capsules, with Antarctic krill oil there is no fishy after-taste!
