Antarctic Krill Oil is made from krill, a small prawn-like crustacean.
The oil contains two types of omega-3 fats – docosahexaenoic acid and eicosapentaenoic acid – that are only found in marine sources. These omega-3 fats are linked to a variety of health benefits and have important functions in the body.
Helps to fight inflammation
Studies have shown that the Omega-3 fatty acids found in Antarctic Krill Oil have positive anti-inflammatory effects on the body, it has been proven to restore initial conditions in inflamed cells. It is possible that Krill Oil may be even more effective at fighting inflammation than other marine omega-3 sources as it has a better bioavailability and is more easily absorbed.
Antarctic Krill Oil also contains astaxanthin, which has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.
Could reduce Arthritis and Joint Pain
As Antarctic Krill Oil can help reduce inflammation, research has shown that it can reduce stiffness, functional impairment and pain in patients with rheumatoid or osteoarthritis.
Another study of 50 adults with mild knee pain has also found that after taking Krill Oil for 30 days, the participants’ pain had significantly reduced.
Studies have suggested that Antarctic Krill Oil has been effective in reducing total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol and triglycerides whilst increasing the HDL cholesterol in hyperlipidemia sufferers.
The consumption of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), both of which can be found in Krill Oil, has generally demonstrated numerous health benefits including lowering rates of cardiovascular disease.
It is suggested that a minimum of 250-500mg combined EPA & DHA (found in Krill Oil) should be consumed each day by the average adult. We recommend taking 2-3 capsules of our Antarctic Krill Oil Capsules Premium Brand RIMFROST® daily, or as directed by a healthcare practitioner.
