AntarcticRed Krill Oil
Our AntarcticRed Krill Oil is made from an Antarctic krill species rich in the omega-3 fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). Krill is a species of zooplankton invertebrates and move in huge swarms throughout pure Antarctic waters.
Krill feed on microscopic algae, which is what largely provides its diet with such a robust source of omega-3's. Algae is also rich in the antioxidant Astaxanthin that gives the bright red pigment to the krill oil. Recognized for its health-promoting suppression of free radicals, Astaxanthin keeps krill fresh, protecting the omega-3 fatty acids from oxidation, which means no additives are necessary to maintain its long-term stability.
The unique quality of krill oil is its natural composition as it contains omega-3 fatty acids attached to phospholipids instead of triglycerides as found in fish oils. So what does this mean for you? Well it is much more effective, as it allows the body to absorb more of the omega-3, so you can take lower doses of EPA and DHA than typically required for fish oils and is a superior source of omega-3 for promoting cardiovascular health.
Our AntarcticRed Krill Oil provides you with the following unique benefits:
Superior omega-3 source
Better absorption with just 1/5 the dose
48x more potent antioxidant protection
100% free of pollution
Eco friendly & sustainable source
No fish burbs

Most Americans are seriously deficient in animal-based omega-3 fats. If you're among them, this means you are missing out on many health advantages that these fats offer. Maintaining a high dietary omega-3 intake throughout your life is essential for optimal health, and the research continues to pour in that krill oil, in particular, is the preferable source.
The most important and well-studied long-chain omega-3 fatty acids are eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Science shows omega-3s can help prevent, and even reverse, heart disease and other serious conditions. We are also learning how omega-3s can be particularly helpful throughout our lives, from pregnancy to our golden years. That’s why millions of Americans take multiple fish oil gel caps a day to supplement their omega-3 intake. Unfortunately as much as 90 percent of the potential benefit of fish oil may be lost due to poor absorption. But, there’s a better way to realize the benefits of omega-3s. And, it’s found in the miniature sea creature called krill.
Krill has non-detectable levels of mercury and other toxins that can be found in fish oil because krill are at the very bottom of the food chain, feeds on phytoplankton and not over other fish that have been accumulating mercury. Krill comes from the cleanest ocean we have left - the Antarctic and is therefore considered the cleanest, purest source of omega-3.
A recent study has shown that when the antioxidant Astaxanthin is combined with krill oil or fish oil, the immune boosting power is multiplied. Try our Premium Astaxanthin together with our AntarcticRed Krill Oil for increased boost to your health.
It has long been known that higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids like EPA and DHA are strongly linked to improved cardiovascular health; while lower levels of omega-3s in the blood are linked to increased rates of hypertension and risk of heart attack.That association continues to grow stronger in a host of heart disease-related areas.
Ample evidence from animal studies supports regular supplementation with omega-3 oils as a means of lowering long-term cardiovascular risk. This may be due to omega-3 fatty acids’ effects on reducing inflammation, lowering triglycerides, reducing blood pressure, improving endothelial function, inducing new blood vessel formation after heart attack or stroke, and favorable modification of obesity-related inflammatory molecules.
Human clinical trials also abound demonstrating the benefits of omega-3s for heart health.
There has been plenty of studies that shows that krill oil prevents inflammation and reduces existing inflammation. Experts believe that’s because omega-3s are transformed in the body to potent hormones called eicosanoids, which control a number of important functions and trigger the secretion of anti-inflammatory prostaglandins, which have been shown to reduce CRP (c-reactive protein) levels.
Krill and fish oil both contain eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which are two important types of omega-3 fatty acids. EPA and DHA have been shown to help reduce triglycerides and inflammation, which can harm the health of your blood vessels. Krill oil also contains a phospholipid, which is more easily absorbed by your body than fish oil.
Omega-3 from krill oil is shown to help improve good cholesterol (HDL) by up to 59 percent and lower bad cholesterol (LDL) by up to 39 percent. It has also been shown to lower triglycerides by up to 26 percent.
Krill oil is great at lessening the triglycerides in the blood and lowering the level of bad LDL cholesterol, but it is also effective at reducing the levels of other lipids and glucose in the blood. This is imperative for patients that suffer from diabetes – especially since diabetes causes problems with inflammation in the cardiovascular system, joints, and the brain.
The powerful antioxidant called Astaxanthin that is found in our AntarcticRed Krill Oil further helps with these conditions, and the omega-3 phospholipids help with the glucose level in the blood, making krill oil integral to a diabetic person’s diet.
Omega-3 from krill oil and fish oil helps reduce the risk of diabetics from developing cognitive deficit because it protects the hippocampus cells from destroying. Studies also showed that fish oil could help reverse one of the root causes of type II diabetes, oxidative stress.
Considering that the omega-3 phospholipids and the astaxanthin antioxidant found in krill oil benefit all cell membranes, krill oil have become very efficient in keeping the skin moisturized, free of dead skin cells and it improves the overall elasticity of the skin.
Astaxanthin helps stimulate a natural continuous production of collagen in the skin which is responsible for maintaining skin tone elasticity and firmness.
Combine AntarcticRed Krill Oil with our Premium Astaxanthin and give not only your skin a powerful boost but your health as well.
Omega-3 from krill oil and fish oil has been shown to reverse dry eye, age-related eye disorders like cataracts.
Astaxanthin that is found in our AntarcticRed Krill Oil has a unique ability to cross the blood-brain barrier and can reach your retina. Well-designed clinical trials have shown that Astaxanthin helps diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, eye strain and fatigue and seeing in fine detail. Astaxanthin is uniquely equipped to prevent age- and UV-related damage to the eyes, making it an effective way to ward off macular degeneration and other causes of vision loss.
Combine AntarcticRed with our Premium Astaxanthin and give not only your eyes a powerful boost but your health as well.
The omega-3 phospholipids and antioxidants found in our AntarcticRed Krill Oil have plenty of benefits for mental health problems. Omega-3 from krill oil can improve your memory, the overall health of the brain, and increase your focus and alertness. The DHA phospholipid is highly useful and imperative to the nervous system – in fact, lack of omega-3 phospholipids might cause your brain not to work well.
With krill oil, you can become more efficient in whatever you do, and your memory will improve significantly with prolonged intake.
Studies have indicated that adequate omega-3 consumption during pregnancy through either high-seafood diets or nutritional supplements results in improved neurological development in children.
Omega-3 fatty acids, especially DHA, are critical for the fetal and early childhood development of the brain, eyes and central nervous system. Studies have also shown benefits in children with autism and ADHD.
One of the causes of depression is presumed to be not having enough serotonin receptors in the membranes of the cells.
According to numerous research studies, omega-3 phospholipid DHA can have the significant impact in the serotonin receptors, and help battle depression, mood swings, and other mood disorders.
The journal "Nutritional Neuroscience" published a study evaluating the effects of Omega-3 found in krill oil and fish oil supplementation on prefrontal metabolite concentrations in adolescents with major depressive disorder. There was a 40% decrease in major depression disorder symptoms in addition to marked improvements in amino acid and nutrition content in the brain; specifically, the right dorsolateral prefrontal cortex.
For several years now, Omega-3 from Krill Oil and Fish Oil, has been studied in connection with Alzheimer’s Disease with consistent results: the essential fatty acids vital for brain function that are found in krill oil and fish oil can not only slow cognitive decline, it can also help prevent bran atrophy in older adults.
Krill oil improves the body’s glucose metabolism and helps battle the most common metabolic problems. The metabolism is regulated by the thyroid gland. The omega-3 phospholipids will aid in regulating the thyroid gland, as well increase the thyroid hormone that signals the pathways in the liver, enhancing lipid (fat) metabolism. When both the blood sugar and lipid metabolism is regulated, you will no longer be able to overeat.
Krill oil is very effective for weight loss when combined with a healthy diet and exercise. Krill oil helps with weight loss from exercising aspect because it allows your muscles and bones to handle workouts better which might be more intense than before because it lubricates the joints and benefits the muscles.
Some studies have indicated that among the health benefits of krill oil is also the ability to alleviate PMS symptoms. The main symptoms measured were the breast tenderness some women experience before their periods, the mood swings and the levels of abdominal pain.
Commercial krill harvesting in Antarctic waters is currently regulated by CCAMLR (Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources). CCAMLR has limited total annual krill harvesting to almost 6 million metric tons to secure sustainability of the krill biomass.
Our krill oil is sourced by using a unique, patent pending technology that continuously siphons netted krill to the factory trawler. The krill arrive aboard alive; so that decomposition of its bio active components does not occur before processing begins. Eco-Harvesting® technology is also of fundamental importance because it successfully prevents by-catches of birds,marine mammals and fish.

Plant-based omega-3 sources like flax, hemp, and chia seeds are high in ALA, but low in EPA and DHA. Most of your health benefits associated with omega-3 fats are linked to animal-based omega-3 fats like EPA and DHA, not plant-based omega-3 fats like ALA. ALA is converted into EPA and DHA in your body, but only at a very low ratio. Even if you eat large amounts of ALA, your body can only convert very small amounts into EPA and DHA, and only when sufficient enzymes are present.
Unlike fish oil, krill oil can deliver the omega-3 fatty acids directly to your cells because of its phospholipids. These are the best carriers and provide the most benefit to your body. So even though krill oil contains fewer omega-3s, your body can absorb them more readily.
It is particularly important for you to ensure omega-3 in your diet if you live on a modern western diet. Due to the opposing effects of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, a healthy diet should contain a balanced omega-6:omega-3 ratio. Human beings evolved eating a diet with a omega-6:omega-3 ratio of about 1:1. Modern Western diets exhibit omega-6:omega-3 ratios ranging between 15:1 to 17:1. Omega-3 and omega-6 are two types of polyunsaturated fatty acids. They are both required for the body to function but have opposite effects when it comes to the inflammatory response and cardiovascular health. Too much omega-6 and too little omega-3 are among the causes for many diseases in modern society. AntarcticRed Krill Oil offer an easy and effective way of increasing daily consumption and is suitable for anyone looking to increase omega-3 intake.
Fish oil and krill oil are both not recommended for some people, such as those with a shellfish or seafood allergy. Those who have a blood coagulation disorder or are taking blood thinners should also refrain from taking these supplements unless as advised with your doctor.
Many of Americans’ health problems can be traced back to having an imbalance of omega-3 and omega-6 fats. Omega-6 fats aren’t necessarily bad for you but if they are consumed in large amounts without omega-3’s they cause inflammation which leads to chronic illness.
Today, the average american has a 20:1 ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fats in their diet , when a healthy ratio is more ideally around 2:1. This shows just how deficient most of us are and why supplementing with fish oil or krill oil is so important and beneficial.
The biggest cause of omega-3 deficiency is the over consumption of fried foods, fast foods and boxed foods containing vegetables oils like soybean oil, canola oil, cottonseed oil and corn oil. If you have an omega-3/6 imbalance it can lead to the following health conditions:
Type II diabetes
Irritable bowel syndrome
It’s also important to understand that even though certain sources like flaxseeds and grass-fed beef contain omega-3 fats, those omega’s are of ALA and not EPA/DHA as found in krill oils and fish oils. You would always want to choose an animal-based variety – most of the cellular health benefits linked to omega-3 fats are linked to the animal-based EPA and DHA, not the plant-based ALA. Furthermore, ALA is converted into EPA and DHA in your body at a very low ratio and would mean that you would have to consume large amounts of ALA. However your body can only convert a relatively small amount into EPA and DHA, and only when there are sufficient enzymes.
According to the medical research there are far more health benefits from krill oil and fish oil (EPA/DHA) than flax oil (ALA).
Most people know about fish oil but far less have actually heard about krill oil or know what the difference is. In this article we will explain to you what makes krill oil the superior source choice for your important Omega-3 fatty acids.
Krill oil is rich in antioxidants, meaning it will not become rancid inside your body and that will not lead to free radical formation in your body. The most powerful antioxidant found in nature is a carotenoid called Astaxanthin and is found naturally in krill oil. A unique marine-source flavonoid that bonds with EPA and DHA, making them a much more bioavailable source.
Fish oil is extracted from oily cold water fish, wild caught fish such as halibut, herring, mackerel, sardines, cod, albacore tuna or farmed fish such as salmon.However, most fish oil supplements on the market contain oils from more than one fish source.
Krill oil comes from a small crustacean and shrimp looking creature that lives in the pristine waters around the Antarctic. The feed solely on plankton that floats on the ocean surface and are at the very bottom of the food chain.
Fish oil is made up of about 30% of the important EPA and DHA Omega-3 fatty acids. EPA and DHA in fish oil are packaged as triglycerides and have to undergo additional processing in the body in order to make them bioavailable. Furthermore, fish oil is highly perishable compared to krill oil because it lacks natural preservatives and turns rancid inside your body.
Krill contain 14% of EPA and DHA. Krill oil is a superior source of EPA and DHA because the polyunsaturated fats are packaged as phospholipids, which can be used immediately by your body without the need of conversion. This makes krill oil up to 48x more potent than fish oil and makes it a much better source for omega-3. As krill oil naturally contains astaxanthin, the most powerful natural antioxidant, it helps to keep krill oil stable for much longer compared to fish oil.

Large scale fishing since the 1950's has seen a 90% reduction of large fish species in our oceans. Fish caught for consumption by humans and used for fish oil are currently being fished out. Scientist believe that we are over-fishing our oceans annually by up to 35% of what is sustainable. This has been especially devastating for some local ecosystems in the pacific that have fishing quotas of 100% over the recommended sustainable limit. Species and populations of top predatory fish are disappearing at an alarming rate.
Krill are caught in the pristine waters around the Antarctic and the sustainability is strictly ensured by the international organisation; Commission for the Conservation of the Antarctic Marine Living Resources or CCAMLR for short. In 2002 CCAMLR set an annual limit of 6.6 million tons as a precautionary harvesting limit to ensure the sustainability of krill and the marine life that depends on krill. This is out of an estimated 740 million tons of krill that live in our waters, making krill the largest biomass on Earth. So far only 2% of the set limit has ever been harvested in a given year and scientists theories that the annual limit of 6.6 million tons could be safely increased 50x of today's levels without damaging the ecosystem.
Most fish that are used in fish oil are at the top of the food chain. This means that fish oil is extracted from fish species that have accumulated high levels of contaminants by eating other fish that feed on other fish.
Contaminants that are be found in fish are:Mercury
So what about farmed fish? A large portion of fish oil supplements comes from farmed fish but they have actually been found to contain higher levels of heavy metals. In fact much higher levels than fish caught in our oceans and fish farming strains the local environment.
Krill oil comes from krill that are harvested in our most pristine waters around the Antarctic. Krill are also at the very bottom of the food chain so they do not accumulate heavy metals, PCB's, Dioxins and other contaminants making it the safer source of Omega-3. Each batch we create can be checked for exact harvested location. Please select the "Eco" tab at the top to see where your batch has been harvested.
Fish oil is highly perishable compared to krill oil because it lacks a natural preservative. When fish oil turns rancid inside your body, it leads to free radical formation and damages cells. This is a major drawback of fish oil. Regardless of what format the fish oil is in, the high levels of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, which are responsible for the health benefits of fish oil, are susceptible to oxidation*.
Fish oil should always resemble fish in its most pure and fresh state. Exposure to oxidation increases taste and fishy smell and is a clear indication of oxidation of the fish oil. Never buy Omega-3 in liquid form as it is highly exposed to oxidation. A test was recently conducted by ConsumerLab, who tested 35 products for freshness and purity and assessed whether or not these products contained the amounts of EPA and DHA claimed on their product labels. Out of the 35 products tests, 11 failed to pass testing.
Krill oil naturally contains natures most powerful antioxidant called Astaxanthin that is 800 times stronger than CoQ10 and 65 times more powerful than Vitamin C. Astaxanthin has many amazing health benefits and as an antioxidant it naturally protects krill oil from oxidation*. Learn more about the many health benefits of Astaxanthin by clicking here.
Let me give you an example that you can relate to from the kitchen. Cut apples or avocados and they are beautiful in their natural color but leave them on the kitchen table for a short while and they begin to turn brownish. This happens as the apples and avocados react to oxygen in the air. Continue to leave the apples or avocados and they end up brown and not looking very appealing to eat. There is a trick to slow them turning brown and that is simply to squeeze lime or lemon over them and the reason that they now turn brown much slower is the natural antioxidant you know as Vitamin C. Tests made comparing Vitamin C to Astaxanthin showed far longer protection with Astaxanthin.
Fish oil and krill oil are both not recommended for people with a shellfish or seafood allergy. Those who have a blood coagulation disorder or are taking blood thinners should also refrain from taking these supplements.
