Interesting new Krill product from BioCeuticals
BioCeuticals has launched two new Antarctic krill oil formulas that look rather good and are quite well priced.
What is also good, is that on initial investigations the way they are sourcing the product appears ecologically sound!
Sourced from Aker BioMarine, which meets environmental sustainability standards set by the WWF.
Importantly, it is not a farmed fish.
Krill oil contains a high quantity of omega-3 fatty acids bound to phospholipids. Research shows krill oil produces similar effects to fish oil but with only 63% of the EPA / DHA content of fish oil, suggesting greater absorption.
Krill oil is rich in EPA and DHA, and phospholipids which may support heart, eye and brain health. Additionally, krill oil naturally contains astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant.
When should you consider a Krill Oil?
Krill gives a very high phospholipid form of omega-3s that may increase bioavailability of omega fats. Phospholipids are important for the structure of healthy cell membranes.
Therefore Krill may support heart, eye and brain health.
They are Vanilla-scented capsules and provide 1500mg krill oil per capsule. Which is a convenient, therapeutic dose.
BioCeuticals UltraClean Antarctic Krill plus Q10:
As a good variant there is a version with Coenzyme Q10.
Added potent antioxidant, coenzyme Q10, to support cardiovascular health including reducing oxidation levels of LDL cholesterol.
