What is Krill Oil?
Krill Oil is a type of oil that contains large quantities of omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. In the past people used to think that fish oil was the best choice for obtaining omega-3, but now it is becoming clear that Krill Oil is the real king of the omega-3 fatty acids! There are more and more studies proving the positive effects of using Krill Oil against physical and mental ailments.
The difference between Krill Oil and Fish Oil
Omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil are connected to triglycerides, fat particles that are similar to cholesterol. Those are substances found in the bloodstream. Krill Oil is composed of omega-3 fatty acids that are connected to phospholipids. A great advantage of this is that phospholipids are better absorbed by the body than triglycerides, which results in a faster and better absorption of omega-3 fatty acids in the body.
Besides that, another very important advantage of Krill Oil is that it does not oxidate, differently from fish oil. This means that fish oil will spoil as the time passes, while Krill Oil will remain fresh and intact. This happens because Krill Oil contains a natural and powerful antioxidant called Astaxanthin. This red colored substance acts as a natural preservative.
