Krill oil

Krill oil is derived from small shrimp-like marine crustaceans found in oceans around the world, but they are most common in cold-water oceans, such as the Antarctic and North Pacific. There are 18 species and an estimated 500 – 750 million tonnes of krill worldwide. This makes them the most significant biomass of animals in the world. They are a staple food for fish, whales, sharks, seals, penguins and other sea birds. Krill eat phytoplankton (microscopic plant life). Unlike many fish, one of the key benefits of krill is that they are low enough on the food chain so that they do not pose a threat of containing mercury.

Also known as Euphausia superba, krill oil is a source of Omega 3 oil. It contains two types of Omega 3 fatty acid: eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).

Krill oil also contains astaxanthin, as well as phospholipids – two properties which set it apart from traditional fish oils.
