Krill oil is made from krill, a small, shrimp-like crustacean that inhabits the cold ocean areas of the world. Despite their small size, krill make up the largest animal biomass on the planet. There are approximately 500 million tons of krill roaming in northern seas alone, and larger populations in the Southern Ocean.
Krill oil, like fish oil, contains omega-3 fats such as eicosapentanoic acid (EPA) and docosahexanoic acid (DHA). However, in fish oil, these omega-3 fats are found in the triglyceride form. In krill oil, they are found in a double chain phospholipid structure, the same form as the fats in human cell walls.
Krill oil also contains vitamin E, vitamin A, vitamin D and astaxanthin, which is a potent anti-oxidant. The anti-oxidant potency of krill oil is, in terms of ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorptance Capacity) values, 48 times more potent than fish oil. The astaxanthin found in krill oil supports resistance against ultraviolet light and UV-induced skin damage.

really good product
Very good, quick delivery
Fast delivery and nice products with long expiry date
Average. Speedy delivery but 1 capsule was broken and leaked onto the other tablets. This happened on the last delivery also.
A quick search of the Internet will reveal the many claimed benefits for using krill. For myself, I have been using it for the last couple of years and have to say that I am, so far, arthritis free and over 70 years old. The special antixodidants are also apparently good for brain health and I am writing computer programs most days of the week.I haven't seen any fall-off in my ability to do this and my general awareness and alertness seems to be no less than normal. Is it the krill? I honestly don't know; I eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly and sleep well. But I don't plan on dropping the krill...
