The oil of Atlantic Krill, a zooplankton crustacean, contains one of the most unique nutrient profiles ever discovered. In addition to rich concentrations of EPA and DHA, krill also boasts an impressive amount of phospholipids, all-trans retinol vitamin A, natural vitamin E, and omega-9 fatty acids. The oil is an excellent source of esterified astaxanthin—a powerful, immune-supporting carotenoid that has been clinically proven to quench singlet oxygen radicals within cell membranes. This potent arrangement of naturally occurring compounds exhibits strong synergist properties that support and protect many of the body’s most vital systems.
At the most basic level, krill oil contains compounds that the body needs in order to construct healthy cell membranes. By nature, omega-3 essential fatty acids can be particularly sensitive to oxidation. Atlantic Krill, however, contain antioxidants and carotenoids that bind to these fatty acids, thus improving their biological stability. Accordingly, studies have shown that as much as 95-98% of the EPA and DHA in krill oil is capable of being absorbed for use throughout the body.
Among its most impressive qualities, Neptune Krill Oil contains phospholipids that are rich in EPA and DHA, and structurally similar to those produced by the human brain. The most significant include Phosphatidyl Choline, Phosphatidyl Inositol and Phosphatidyl Ethanolamine. Researchers believe that their unique structure and ability to cross the blood-brain barrier make it possible for these compounds to support brain and cognitive health.* NOW® Neptune Krill Oil is manufactured under strict quality control, and tested to be free of potentially harmful levels of mercury and other heavy metals, PCB’s, dioxins and other contaminants.
