NKO Krill Oil from Longevity Science is a superior form of fish oil made from Neptune Krill - tiny shrimp-like crustacea harvested from the pristine oceans surrounding Antarctica.
- Has an ORAC capacity of over 300 times that of vitamin C or vitamin E
- Contains phosphatidyl-choline and has significant choline content, a precursor for the neurotransmitter acetylcholine which supports healthy liver function and is important in learning and memory functions
- Supports maintenance of healthy cell membranes
- May provide multi-factorial cardiovascular support*
- May help alleviate emotional and physical symptoms of PMS*
The antioxidant capacity of NKO Krill Oil is nothing short of amazing. It is rich in astaxanthin, a natural carotenoid which is more powerful than beta-carotene. Using ORAC testing, NKO Krill Oil has over 300 times the antioxidant power of vitamin C or vitamin E, over 34 times the power of CoQ10 and more than 47 times the power of lutein.*
The omega-3 fatty acids in NKO Krill Oil are unique in their profile. NKO is made via a patented low temperature extraction process which maintains the integrity of the phospholipids, to which the omega-3s are bound.
Phospholipids are the primary structures of human cell membranes, which, by regulating cellular transport, function as the gate-keepers of cells. When omega-3s are preserved intact in this phospholipid complex, it highly facilitates the absorption of the fatty acids in the intestines.*
The most predominant phospholipid in NKO Krill Oil is phosphatidyl-choline, making NKO Krill Oil a rich source of choline. Choline is a precursor for the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, and for trimethylglycine, a methyl donor which supports healthy liver function.*
Standard fish oils lack a phospholipid complex, instead containing omega-3 fatty acids in the form of free triglycerides. Two studies have shown significantly higher DHA absorption when DHA was bound to phospholipids, as compared with DHA from fish oil.* Standard fish oils also do not offer the antioxidant activity that NKO Krill Oil does.
Each batch is guaranteed to have less than one-tenth of one PPM (part per million) of cadmium, mercury and lead, and less than 0.2 PPB (part per billion) of PCBs. NKO Krill oil is tested for these and other contaminants, and must conform to set standards for purity.
