Omega-3s — What Are They?
Omega-3s are “good” fatty acids that play a crucial role in brain and heart function, as well as normal growth and development. Considered essential for overall health and wellbeing, omega-3s can be found in foods such as fish, vegetable oils, nuts, flax seeds, and leafy vegetables.
Benefits of Omega-3s
Key benefits from omega-3s include:
Omega-3s levels have been shown to improve overall health of the cardiovascular system, helping to keep both the heart and arteries healthy. Optimal levels promotes regular heart rhythm, supports normal blood pressure, and supports normal cholesterol levels.
Omega-3s are crucial to brain development and continued brain health, playing key roles in the proper structure and function of brain cell membranes and cell signaling, and helping to maintain memory and cognitive functions.
Omega-3s support a healthy response to inflammation, increasing the production of omega-3 derived inflammatory mediators and helping bring the body back into balance to help reduce illness and disease, including rheumatoid arthritis.
Are you getting enough?
The human body requires essential fatty acids for optimal health, but we can’t manufacture them on our own — they must be obtained from diet. And unless you’re eating a diet rich in omega-3s on a regular basis, there’s a good chance you aren’t getting enough. In fact, because the typical Western diet is heavy in omega-6 fatty acids and light in omega-3 fatty acids due to overconsumption of processed foods, most people have a ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 of about 30:1 instead of the recommended 4:1.
Why Choose Krill for your Omega-3s?
Krill is an effective way to get more omega-3s and improve your omega ratio. Krill is the only marine species that offers omega-3s bound to phospholipids instead of triglycerides, making it water dispersible and thereby gentler on the stomach and more easily absorbed by the body. That means the omega-3s get to the places where you need them most, faster and more efficiently.
A Good Source
Krill are harvested from pure Antarctic waters, where they feed on microscopic algae and serve as a major food source for whales, seals, and penguins. Since they are low on the food chain, they are also naturally low in accumulated contaminants, so no purification or distillation of the oil is required, making krill a superior source of whole-food omega-3s.
