Krill Oil 500mg is a valuable natural source of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, the majority of which are bound to phospholipids, making them more easily absorbed and incorporated into the cells than omega-3s from fish oil.
Krill Oil 500mg may provide temporary relief from the pain of osteoarthritis, reduce joint inflammation and swelling, and increase joint mobility. It helps healthy people maintain normal cholesterol levels and a healthy ratio of ‘good’ (HDL) to ‘bad’ (LDL) cholesterol.
For women, Krill Oil 500mg may aid the management of premenstrual syndrome and relieve menstrual symptoms such as period pain, breast pain, irritability, stress and moodiness.
DHA and EPA also assist in the maintenance of normal brain and eye function, and are required for healthy cell membranes. Krill Oil 500mg is also a natural source of astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant.
Krill are crustaceans that are similar to prawns, but at just 1-2 centimetres long, they’re much smaller. They live in all the oceans of the world, and in particular in enormous swarms in the Antarctic Ocean. Although each individual krill is tiny, together they comprise the largest biomass on earth: in terms of their collective body weight they are probably the most numerous animal species on the planet.
Krill oil is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, and provides them in a form that’s particularly easy for the human body to absorb and utilise – and it’s rapidly becoming one of our most popular products. To ensure that our krill oil production doesn’t have a negative impact on the pristine Antarctic environment, Australian NaturalCare is committed to only using premium quality, sustainably sourced
Our krill oil supplier works voluntarily with the official international body responsible for the conservation of marine life in the Antarctic (CCAMLR), and has also been audited and approved by leading international conservation groups, the World Wildlife Fund and Marine Stewardship Council.
They are the only krill harvesting company in the world that works tirelessly to ensure that the controls and sustainability of each krill harvest exceed the stringent requirements set by CCAMLR, which ensure that whales and other animals that depend on krill are not adversely affected. By-catch (the accidental capture of other species of marine or bird life) are minimised or eliminated through the use of specially designed harvesting equipment, and each harvest is monitored by external, independent environmental auditors.
