Description: Krill are tiny crustaceans found in the sea and make up the world's largest animal biomass. The oil extracted from krill is rich in the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA bound to highly unsaturated phospholipids, closely resembling human brain phospholipids. These phospholipids - phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylinositol, and phosphatidylethanolamine – are essential to life and are a major component of cell membranes, functioning as cell messengers and as carriers of EPA and DHA, providing a fast and effective delivery of these omega-3s.
Key Ingredients: ABADI Krill Plus has a high phospholipid content, standardized to a minimum of 40% phospholipids, mostly as phosphatidylcholine. This updated version is considered to be a virgin krill oil, the purest form available, with higher phospholipid bioavailability, enhancing the absorption of one of krill's shining features, the powerful antioxidant astaxanthin. It would take 8 conventional krill softgels to equal the astaxanthin levels in just 1 ABADI Krill Plus softgel!
Astaxanthin, the carotenoid from the microalgae, haematococcus pluvialis, is a staple of krill's diet and gives them and other crustaceans their vibrant pink color. Many studies suggest that an exceptionally high level of astaxanthin offers an array of therapeutic benefits, which may include:
• Powerful antioxidant
• Cardiovascular health – helping to promote healthy lipid profiles; potential anti-hypertensive
• Sports performance - increasing muscle endurance and reducing exercise-induced muscle damage
• Eye support - Reducing eye fatigue and improving visual acuity
• Supporting skin health - protecting against UVA-induced aging, as in skin sagging and wrinkles
• Gastric health support - helping to reduce gastric inflammation and reflux symptoms
In addition to its rich phospholipids, omega-3s, and astaxanthin, Krill Plus also naturally contains several other antioxidants including, canthaxanthin, β-carotene, vitamin E and trans-retinol vitamin A. These antioxidants offer benefits of their own while also protecting this nutrient-dense oil from oxidation. Krill Plus is made using a unique cold-extraction process that converts it into stable oil. This process protects the lipids from alteration and avoids peroxidation. It is free of heavy metals and organohalide pollutants, making it extremely pure. This product does not cause reflux or regurgitation commonly experienced by those consuming regular fish oil supplements.
Suggested Use: Take two softgels for 30 days with the first meal, and one softgel thereafter with the first meal or as recommended by your health care professional.
Contraindications: If you are pregnant or nursing, consult your physician before taking this product.
