Superbra Krill Oil – An all round winner?

The benefits of Krill Oil are so many you have to wonder why we aren’t all on it and buy it as regulary as we do multi vitamins and other supplements. It has only recently been discovered and, a way of harvesting it applied that does not deplete the oceans. Also a method of processing it quickly enough to harness the benefits had to be investigated (see video below). Krill oil is extremely high in Omega3 fats which are vital for the body. The body does not make Omega3s and it must be supplemented through our diets. There is argument that we can get our Omega3s through a vegetarian diet but there is proof that Krill Oil has a different carbon make-up and can be absorbed more readily. SOME Krill Oil Benefits

  • Brain Function. There’s no doubt you need omega-3 fat for proper brain function. In fact, mounting evidence suggests that deficiency in this essential fat may lead to brain degeneration.
  • The heart and cardiovascular system. Due to the effect of Omega3s on heart health it is recommended that we eat fish at least twice a week, but some fish may be polluted with heavy metals or you may be allergic to fish or simply don’t like it. Krill oil is less likely to be polluted and has much higher levels of Omega3s than regular fish oils or fish itself, also allergy to it is less likely.
  • Omega3s can help with inflammation from arthritis to joint pain.
  • Skin conditions such as dermatitis and psoriasis, and help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
  • PMS, including bloating, anxiousness, abdominal or lower back pain.
  • High blood pressure and high cholesterol.
  • Lower triglycerides and Apo proteins. Tell-tale precursors of Diabetes.

Krill is the largest bio-mass in the world. They live in huge numbers in the Antarctic Ocean, and the World Wildlife federation and other agencies make sure that only a small percentage of the krill in the world’s oceans are harvested every year. Supposedly, the harvesting could go on for centuries before there would ever be any concern. Krill are made up of phospholipids, which means they are much easier for the body to absorb and therefore, you don’t have to take as much to receive krill oil benefits as you would comparably with usual Fish Oils. You can take fewer milligrams in a dose of Omega-3s from krill versus fish oil and not get gaseous, or have what are referred to as “fish burps”, although the capsules can be a bit whiffy before ingesting them. The suggested dosage of krill oil vs fish oil is about half in comparison for the same level of Omega3 absorption. Dosing ranges from 500 mg to 3 g of krill oil a day. Check labels for amounts of EPA and DHA, astaxanthin and vitamins, as brands will differ. There is lots of information out on the net today and this is the case for all supplements. If you do look one up then this one is well worth your time.
