Did you know that Krill Oil has 47 times the anti-oxidant power of fish oil?

…I bet you didn’t. Most people don’t even know what Krill are, let alone know that the naturally occurring oil contains large doses of Omega-3 Fatty Acids.

Krill oil also contains an anti-oxidant called astaxanthin (az-tuh-zan-thin), the algae the Krill eat produces the red pigment astaxanthin gives the Krill and other crustaceans like lobster and shrimp their pinkish color.

When we use Krill oil as a supplement we ingest this powerful anti-oxidant.  Obviously you’ve heard that anti-oxidants protect our body’s cells from the damages that free radicals can cause.

Unlike many other anti-oxidants astaxthin crosses the blood-brain barrier, where supposedly it could your eyes, brain and central nervous system from free radical damage…and that’s a good thing.

Krill oil is used very similar to the way you would use a fish oil supplement to help correct your Omega-3 Fatty Acid balance.  Unlike fish oil, Krill doesn’t cause fishy burps or that kinda gross aftertaste you experience as a common side effect from fish oil supplementation.

Krill oil is being studied as I write this as a natural remedy for High Cholesterol.  In one study 120 people were give either Krill oil, fish oil or a placebo.

The study found that Krill oil reduced the participants LDL (bad cholesterol) by 34% and raised the HDL (good cholesterol) by 43.5 % compared to the placebo.  Pretty amazing! The funny thing is the fish oil only reduced LDL by 4.6 % and raised the HDL by 4.2 %.  A nice little side benefit is that Krill also lowered triglycerides.

So why am I telling you all this about Krill Oil. Well because Prograde Nutrition has the best Omega-3 Fatty Acid Product with it’s EFA Icon and it’s chock full of Krill Oil and really does have 47 times the anti-oxidant power than fish oil and lutein…and here’s a couple of other benefits:
