Pure Krill Oil
60 capsules (500mg)
Krill oil is a source of Omega 3 oil which contains two types of Omega 3 fatty acid: EPA and DHA. It also contains Astaxanthin and phospholipids, setting it apart from traditional fish oils; provides 500mg of krill oil per capsule.
Unlike fish oil, krill oil does not cause ‘fishy burps’ or leave an after-taste, having the edge on fish or flaxseed oils.
This high-grade Antarctic Krill Oil is sourced exclusively from sustainable fisheries in the Antarctic. Such fisheries work alongside the World Wildlife Foundation in Norway to ensure sustainable krill harvesting.

About the Ingredients
There are 18 species of Krill oil and an estimated 500 - 750 million tonnes of krill in our seas worldwide. Krill oil is derived from shrimp-like marine crustaceans found most commonly in cold-water oceans, such as the North Pacific and the pristine seas of the Antarctic, making them the most significant biomass of animals in the world. Krill eat phytoplankton (microscopic plant life) whereas krill are a staple food for marine life. Unlike many other fish, one of the key benefits of krill is that they are low enough on the food chain – they do not pose a threat of containing mercury.
Omega 3 oils
Krill oil is a source of two types of omega 3 EPA and DHA. Omega 3 oils can be found in coldwater fatty fish, deep green vegetables and some grains and seeds.
EPA and DHA contribute to normal heart function (with a daily intake of 250mg) - click here and here for EFSA scientific opinion.
DHA and EPA contribute to the maintenance of blood pressure (with a daily intake of 3g of EPA and DHA)* - click here and here for EFSA scientific opinions.
DHA contributes to the maintenance of blood triglyceride levels (with a daily intake of 2g of DHA and when taken in combination with EPA)* - click here for EFSA scientific opinion.
DHA contributes to the maintenance of brain function (with a daily intake of 250mg of DHA) - click here and here for EFSA scientific opinion.
DHA contributes to the maintenance of normal vision (with a daily intake of 250mg of DHA) - click here and here for EFSA scientific opinion.
*Users should not exceed a supplemental daily intake of 5g of EPA and DHA combined.
Krill oil also provides phospholipids, which are naturally occurring molecules and a major component of all cell membranes.
Astaxanthin occurs naturally in certain algae, it is Astaxanthin which causes the pink/red colour of krill.
The presence of Astaxanthin protects the Omega 3 fatty acids from becoming rancid due to oxidisation.
