KRILL - How It Works
Long-chain omega-3 fatty acids docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) have been proven to reduce inflammation, improve cognitive function, and promote muscle growth. The problem is that the most common sources of EPA / DHA are fish oils that are poorly sourced and processed. Typically they’re low potency, contaminated, and/or oxidized.
Natural Stacks™ Krill Oil uses only sustainably harvested krill from the pristine Antarctic ocean. It’s immediately cold-pressed while still on board the vessel to preserve the biological benefits of the krill. Then it goes through a proprietary purification process and is lab tested to ensure that the krill oil has absolutely zero toxins, heavy metals, or other impurities
Krill oil is superior to fish oil because the EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids in krill are bonded to cell-building phospholipids. This give krill oil significantly greater bio-absorption than fish oil. Also krill oil contains natural antioxidants including vitamin a, and vitamin e, and astaxanthin.
Optimal EPA / DHA Ratio
Our krill oil complex is formulated to outperform any other marine oil product on the market. We used small amount of DHA-high European anchovy and sardine oil to increase the ratio of DHA to EPA, because DHA is the primary structural component of the brain.
DHA is essential for neurological development and function, while EPA can influence mood. They’re both anti-inflammatory and have complementary effects, but DHA appears to be more important for optimal performance because it’s the predominant fatty acid in the brain and nervous system.
Almost all wild caught fish has more DHA than EPA (LINK), yet most fish oil supplements on the market have more EPA than DHA because of their low grade sourcing techniques. Natural Stacks™ Krill Oil contains 150 mg DHA and 90 mg EPA.
1.5 mg Astaxanthin Per Serving
Naturally found in krill, astaxanthin is thought to be the most powerful antioxidant found in nature. The only two main sources of this fat-soluble antioxidant are the microalgae that produce it (haematococcus pluvialis) and the sea creatures that consume the algae. It’s what gives salmon their pink color and is the driving force behind their incredible endurance.
Astaxanthin is a free radical scavenger that protects your cells from oxidative damage. It has potent anti-inflammatory properties that can boost your immune system, promote cardiovascular health, and improve endurance. Astaxanthin also provides protection against ultraviolet light and UV-induced skin damage.
Most krill oil products don’t say how much astaxanthin is in their product. Natural Stacks™ Krill Oil proudly offers 1.5 mg of the super-antioxidant in every serving.
