There are many advantages to taking a Neptune Krill Oil
supplement. Not only do you get the health benefits of omega 3 fatty acids, but you
also get a natural source of brain-nourishing phospholipids and a potent
antioxidant - Astaxanthin. This unique combination of Neptune Krill Oil
ingredients is what separates it from other healthy oils.
Fish oils are good for you and this is not meant to change
your opinion on the health benefits of fish oils. However, the ingredients in
LifeSource Neptune Krill Oil can offer you an amazing antioxidant
protection and we all know this is one of the key steps to staying young and
What are Krill?
Krill are shrimp-like crustaceans that are approximately 1 to
6 centimeters long. They live in the ocean, where they feed mainly on
phytoplankton. They're near the bottom of the food chain and are eaten by
whales, seals, penguins, squid, and fish.
Commercial fishing of krill occurs primarily in the Antarctic
and the northern Pacific Oceans; along the coasts of Canada and Japan. Krill
that are caught are used for aquaculture and aquarium feeds, sport fishing bait
or they are eaten as food.
What can Astaxanthin do for you?
Another reason krill oil is becoming popular is that it
contains an antioxidant called astaxanthin. The algae that krill eat produce
the bright red pigment astaxanthin that gives krill and other crustaceans such
as lobster and shrimp their reddish-pink color.
Antioxidants protect our body cells from damage from free
radicals, unstable substances that are thought to contribute to certain chronic
diseases. Unlike many other antioxidants, astaxanthin crosses the blood-brain
barrier, where it could theoretically protect the eye, brain and central nervous
system from free radical damage.*

How Neptune Krill Oil plays a role for good health
Every cell in your body is lined with phospholipids,
especially your brain cells. Your body needs phospholipids to grow new cells
and to repair damaged ones. Lipids play a very important part in the
maintenance and growth of all cells in your body. Fish oils are the most
popular source of omega 3 fatty acids. The benefit of taking Neptune
Krill Oil is that you get the health benefits of omega 3 fatty acids and phospholipids
in one supplement, an extremely cell-nourishing combination.*
Proven health benefits for Women!
Woman's World said: "Krill oil is so potent; women
who took it for three months reported a 51% boost in energy, alertness, memory,
concentration and stamina in a recent Canadian study. And almost 100% described
having a greater sense of well-being and happiness -- plus a 31% reduction in
aches and pains!"
These figures were derived from a quality of life study
comparing the benefits of Antarctic pure Neptune Krill Oil to Fish Oil. The
quality of life study was done in conjunction with the Phase II clinical trial
"Evaluation of the effectiveness of NKO on the clinical management of
Hyperlipidemia." In the study, 120 participants, including both men and
women, took either 1.0 or 1.5 grams of krill oil per day (based on their BMI
[body mass index]) or 3.0 grams per day of fish oil. Study participants took a
36-question standardized survey at the end of 30 days, 90 days, and 180 days.
This survey measured the patient's physical function, fatigue, pain, social
function, emotional role, mental capacity, general health and physical
appearance. The survey, in use since 1998 and published in over 4,000 different
studies, was designed to provide statistically valid results.

Commonly Asked Question: I take a plant-based omega supplement. Do I need to take Krill Oil?
Answer: If you are taking a Plant-based omega-3 source such as flax, hemp,
and chia seeds are high in ALA, but low in EPA and DHA. Most of your health
benefits associated with omega-3 fats are linked to animal-based omega-3 fats
like EPA and DHA, not plant-based omega-3 fats like ALA. ALA is converted into
EPA and DHA in your body, but only at a very low ratio. Even if you eat large
amounts of ALA, your body can only convert very small amounts into EPA and DHA,
and only when sufficient enzymes are present.
