- Provides 140 mg of EPA and 82 mg of DHA per daily dose
- Provides 418 mg of phospholipids and 1126 mcg of esterified astaxanthin per daily dose
Krill naturally contains astaxanthin, which is the carotenoid antioxidant responsible for its red pigmentation. Supplementation of 1g of krill oil (providing 200 mg of EPA and DHA) for 12 weeks better maintained overall health when compared to a placebo in a randomized trial involving 267 adults with borderline to high triglyceride levels.
Recent research indicates that the unique combination of omega-3 fatty acids, phospholipids, and astaxanthin in krill oil is a good alternative to fish oil.
