Krill Oil (Omega-3)
“SUPPORT YOUR BRAIN, HEART AND EYE HEALTH”
As our brains are mostly made up of fat, perfect source of energy for them is, in fact, fat. Many of us cannot obtain the right amount of nutrients to support our brains due to the lack of Omega-3 rich foods in our diets. Krill oil offers essential fatty acids for your brain, basically serving as food to fuel your brain.

FRESH FROM THE OCEAN
Living in the pristine, unpolluted waters of the Southern Ocean means our krill is nearly 100% free of environmental contaminants. Due to its low position in the food chain and the living environment of the cleanest water on the earth, it provides powerful nutrients for any individual looking to optimise their lifestyle.
Omega-3 in the blood after 4 weeks
Omega-3 Bound to Phospholipids Bioavailability. Omega-3 plasma levels after supplementation of similar amounts of fish oil and krill oil. Krill oil supplementation resulted in a higher increase in plasma EPA and DHA levels after 4 weeks.

The Power of Red Antioxidant
Eupausia Superba Krill is rich in astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant, which provides the distinctive red colour. More important, this potent antioxidant acts as a natural preservative for the Omega-3 fatty acids.
Well known for its properties that can suppress free radicals, astaxanthin keeps the oil fresh and protects the Omega-3 fatty acids from oxidation. No additives are necessary to maintain the long-term stability of the product.
Single Origin. Fully Traceable
The fully controlled value chain ensures the quality of each batch. Part of that quality is our ability to trace every product back to the exact location of being harvested through the sophisticated GPS system onboard the vessels. This transparent fishing operation allows us to be able to trace the ingredients from sea to capsule, ensuring 100% traceability of our products.

Krill Oil Funfacts
60% of our brain is fat and guess what? Fat is the perfect source of energy for it. Many of us cannot obtain the right amount of nutrients to supply our brain due to the lack of Omega-3 rich diet food. Krill Oil offers essential fatty acids for your brain, basically food to fuel your brain.

General Information About Krill Oil (Omega-3)
Omega-3 is a group of essential fatty acids, which are important fats that you must get from your diet that the body cannot produce on its own. Omega-3s have been shown to provide many health benefits in the areas of cardiovascular and brain health.
Commons foods that contain Omega-3 fatty acids are fatty fish, fish oils, flax seeds, krill oil, chia seeds, and walnuts. People who do not eat many of these foods usually supplement their Omega-3 diet with fish oil, krill oil, or algae oil.
Highlights of Krill Oil (Omega-3)
- The 3 most important types of amino acids are:
- Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)
- Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)
- Alpha-linoleic acid (ALA)
Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) is the most common Omega-3 fatty acid in your diet. Your body can convert it into energy, but it can also be converted into the biologically active forms of Omega-3s, which are EPA and DHA.
However, this conversion process is inefficient as only a small percentage of ALA is converted into these active forms.
ALA is found in foods like flax seeds, flaxseed oil, canola oil, chia seeds, walnuts, hemp seeds, and soybeans. This is why it is important to maintain good levels of EPA and DHA in the body.
Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) is mostly found in animal products, such as fatty fish, fish oil, and krill oil. However, some micro algae can also contain EPA
When it comes to fats, another way to enhance the speed at which your brain communicates with your brain is to take care of the nerves themselves. Your nerves are wrapped in insulating myelin sheaths, which are sleeves of fatty tissue that protect your nerve cells and assist with the transmission of messages. Our diets should be rich in nutrients that support the formulation of these sheaths. As DHA is important for the formulation of myelin sheaths, a diet supporting neurotransmitters should include a high intake of Omega-3s.
Health benefits of Omega-3s
Omega-3s play an important role in regulating inflammation in the body, which has a crucial impact in protecting our joints throughout time. Maintaining an optimal level of Omega-3s helps our joints to function at their best.
Phospholipids assist in the transportation of Omega-3 DHA across the blood brain barrier. Omega-3s play a key role in the proper structure and function of brain cell membranes.
Omega-3s are especially important in helping to keep your eyes healthy, as the highest concentration of DHA in the body is found in the retinas. Omega-3 DHA helps your eyes to see and adjust to different light conditions.
Krill oil has been shown to be beneficial to heart health by lowering the fasting triglyceride levels, which are a risk factor for heart disease. The choline and Omega-3s found in krill oil work together to help keep the heart healthy.
Choline and Omega-3s are important for maintaining healthy liver function and aid in the proper metabolism of fat. The liver is a major organ that helps to regulate the levels of nutrients in our blood. Protecting the liver from damage is vital to good health.
Omega-3s play an important role in regulating inflammation in the body, which can have a crucial impact in protecting our joints throughout life. Maintaining an optimal level of omega-3s helps our joints function at their best.

How to find the right Omega-3 supplements in the market?
There are many types of Omega-3 supplements in the market, which come from many sources. It is important to be informed of how and where the ingredient is harvested. As Omega-3s come from nature, knowing the origin of the raw material will provide an insight as to how it is being cultivated, and further reflects the quality of the end product.
Possible side effects of Krill Oil
Generally speaking, krill oil is considered a safe supplement to consume. However, as with any supplement, if it is consumed on an empty stomach with little water, it can sometimes cause an imbalanced pH level in the stomach, leading to nausea. If you are allergic to shellfish or have a blood coagulation condition, do consult your physician before use.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why is Omega-3 that is bound to Phospholipids different from other Omega-3 fatty acids?
Normal Omega-3 fatty acids, EPA, and DHA from fish are bound to triglyceride, or etyl esters. In contrast, the majority of fatty acids, EPA, and DHA from krill oil are bound to phospholipids. Phospholipids maybe more efficiently transport Omega-3 fatty acids through the body and facilitate better integration into the cell membrane.
Why don’t the Omega-3s by actipure result in any fishy burps or a bad aftertaste?
This is due to the high quality processing on board our harvesting vehicles where the krill are quickly pasteurised and processed instantly. Moreover, the technology of fish gelatin li-caps ensures that there is no leakage, and therefore the oil does not oxidize, which further prevents the formulation of the fishy smell.
Should customers be concerned about contaminants from the bottom of the food chain?
Our krill is harvested in the cleanest water of the earth, which makes it nearly contaminant free. As krill is very low in the food chain, it feeds on micro algae and is not consuming other sea life. Other sea life can contain contaminants, such a heavy metals, which contribute to many of today’s health issues.
Why are Omega-3s so important for individuals?
As our brains are mostly made of fat, Omega-3s are basically food for your brain and cardiovascular system. Our bodies cannot produce Omega-3s on their own, so it is important to consume them through high quality foods and supplements.
Is Superba Krill a good sports supplement?
We know that high intensity training has an impact on the cardiovascular system, immune function, and inflammation, making athletes prone to illness and infections. It has been shown that regular intense exercise can deplete the levels of Omega-3s in the body. Therefore, maintaining a good level of Omega-3s can help provide more balanced nutrition for athletes.
