Royal red krill oil 1000 mg is a source of essential omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants made from Antarctic krill oil. It provides a functional dose of the omega-3s eicosapentaenoic acid (epa) and docosahexaenoic acid (dha) that support brain function, the cardiovascular system, and overall good health. This sustainably sourced 100 percent pure Antarctic krill oil is a natural source of astaxanthin, a valuable antioxidant that helps protect against free radical damage and oxidation of epa and dha. Astaxanthin and dha may also help maintain good cognitive health throughout life. Unlike the omega-3 in fish oils, krill oil’s epa and dha are bound to phospholipids which significantly increase their absorption in the gut and their delivery to brain tissue and cell membranes throughout the body, meaning that krill oil can provide efficient cellular support and health benefits at a lower dose than fish oil. Royal red krill oil undergoes an innovative extraction process specially designed to preserve the natural omega-3 and antioxidants found in krill. An ideal choice for ongoing support of cognitive health, eye health, and cardiovascular health, royal red krill oil’s excellent absorption profile means that there is no need to worry about a fishy odor or aftertaste.
