What is Krill Oil?
Krill Oil is the oil harvested from small, shrimp-like crustaceans. The Krill in Blue Ocean Krill Oil live in the pristine, deep oceans of Antarctica. They are an abundant food source in the marine food chain. In fact, their biomass is larger than all of other fish in ocean combined. Because Krill are low in the food chain, eat phytoplankton rather than other fish and live in the isolated Antarctic oceans, Krill Oil is more pure than most Fish Oils.
Why is Blue Ocean Krill Oil Superior?
Phospholipids Most omega-3 dietary supplements — which are derived from fish or fish liver oils — provide omega-3 fatty acids in the triglyceride form.
The phospholipids Blue Ocean Krill Oil play vital roles in cell membranes and cellular processes. Consequently, omega-3 phospholipids are important to the structure
and function of the human brain. Fatty acids stored in the form of triglycerides are mainly found in adipose tissue where they are a source of energy to the human body.
Omega-3 phospholipids are reported to offer greater bioavailability and bioeffectiveness than omega-3 triglycerides. The possible explanations might be: a) greater
solubility in aqueous environments in the intestine due to spontaneous micelle formation, b) other pathways by which omega-3 phospholipids are digested and absorbed
via the gastrointestinal tract, c) different distribution to body tissues and d) different uptake and utilization by tissues.
