Supplement Tree 100% Pure Cold Pressed Eco Harvested Superba Krill Oil Capsules are manufactured using the finest sourced and freshest Krill direct from the Antarctic. Superba Krill Oil is harvested and processed by Aker Biomarine from a single source of fresh krill on board Superba vessels in the Antarctic.
Superba Krill omega-3s supports many health areas, such as: heart health, brain health, joint health, healthy inflammation and women’s health.
Why Superba Krill Oil?
Supplement Tree use only Superba Krill from Aker Biomarine, a company that can draw on over 100 years of fishing experience, with over a decade of that specifically harvesting krill oil.
Superba Krill Oil has been clinically proven in many published and ongoing trials, with over 20 published studies in the last 4 years alone using the Superba brand. In studies, Superba Krill has also been shown to increase the Omega-3 Index faster and more efficiently compared to other marine sources.
Unlike other sources of Omega 3 such as fish oil, Superba Krill Oil requires no refining. This is because:
- Superba Krill is harvested from the pristine clean waters of the Antarctic Ocean.
- Krill is low down in the food chain
- Krill has a relatively low life cycle
All of this means that Superba Krill is completely pure in it’s natural form, free from any environmental pollutants. When you use Superba Krill Oil you only ever get pure krill oil – nothing more, nothing less.
Krill Oil vs Fish Oil
Krill oil, like fish oil, contains both of the omega-3 fats, eicosapentanoic acid (EPA) and docosahexanoic acid (DHA), but hooked together in a different form. In krill oil the majority of the omega 3s is in phospholipid form and not in triglyceride form as in fish oil.
A study by Werner et al demonstrated essential fatty acids in the form of phospholipids were superior to essential fatty acids as triglycerides in significantly increasing the phospholipid concentrations of EPA and DHA.
This means krill oil omega 3s are identical to the lipids in the human cell membrane, whereas fish oils are not. Fish oil needs to be made into phospholipids by the liver. This conversion process is inefficient and does not guarantee that the fish EPA and DHA ends up in the cell membrane.
Basically, although fish oils appear to have higher Omega 3 value than Krill, the nutritional value is higher in Krill. The Krill Oil phospholipid omega 3s are absorbed by the body’s cells 60% more efficiently compared to other marine sources.
Krill Oil also contains the ultra potent antioxidant Astaxanthin, from which it gets its red pigment.
