Omega 3 Krill Oil+ is a dietary supplement containing omega-3 series polyunsaturated fatty acids (EPA, DHA), phospholipids and the antioxidant astaxanthin.

The oil is extracted from krill, a group of small crustaceans of the order Euphausiacea found throughout the oceans. Omega 3 Krill Oil+ is extracted from the most abundant species (Euphausia superba) found in the cold polar waters of the Antarctic Ocean. This oil is rich in omega-3 and astaxanthin, an antioxidant substance.

Essential fatty acids are indispensable substances for the body, which, however, we are unable to synthesise ourselves. Consequently, only through diet can we meet the proper requirement of these substances, as well as vitamins, minerals and essential amino acids.

In the omega-3 class, there are two particularly important types of fatty acids: eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).

These fatty acids perform a plastic function (cell membranes) and are particularly abundant in the central and peripheral nervous system, where they tend to decrease with age. Numerous studies have associated the decrease in essential fatty acids with the occurrence of nervous system dysfunctions (e.g. loss of memory, visual acuity, etc.). Furthermore, from a metabolic point of view, essential fatty acids are precursors of prostaglandins, prostacyclins, thromboxanes and leukotrienes, all metabolites active in functions such as muscle contraction, platelet aggregation and the inflammatory response. A deficiency in essential fatty acids can, therefore, create major imbalances in the body’s functions. Correct intake of omega-3 essential fatty acids has the beneficial property of lowering the concentration of triglycerides in the blood. They also have the ability to reduce platelet aggregability, thus lowering the risk of atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease.

Omega-3 supplementation also benefits skin health and appearance by helping protect against UV damage (Pilkington et al. 2011; Omega-3 Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids: Photoprotective Macronutrients); preliminary studies also suggest a reduction in inflammatory skin conditions such as acne (Rubin, Kim, and Logan 2008 Acne vulgaris, mental health and omega-3 fatty acids: a report of cases).

Krill oil naturally contains astaxanthin, an important antioxidant, 11 times more potent than beta-carotene and 550 times more potent than vitamin E, capable of acting as an efficient ‘cellular scavenger’ of free radicals at the level of cell membranes (Fassett and Coombes, 2012; Astaxanthin in Cardiovascular Health and Disease). These properties make it a molecule with many beneficial effects on the body, including anti-inflammatory roles and protection against cardiovascular disease (von Schacky, 2007; Omega-3 Fatty Acids and Cardiovascular Disease). Furthermore, a 2012 study found that daily oral astaxanthin supplementation improved skin texture and elasticity and reduced the size of age spots (Tominaga et al. 2012; Cosmetic Benefits of Astaxanthin on Humans Subjects).

Krill oil contains 2 other important molecules for our body that work synergistically with omega-3: choline and phosphatidylcholine. As reported in several scientific studies, choline and phosphatidylcholine play a key role in heart health, preventing heart disease and reducing the likelihood of developing type 2 diabetes (Xu et al. 2022; SGLT2 Inhibition, Choline Metabolites, and Cardiometabolic Diseases […] randomised study). The synergistic effect appears to be due to the ability of these molecules to bind lipids, thinning the blood and reducing LDL-cholesterol content. Notably, choline also contributes to the normal functioning of our nervous system, preventing its deterioration caused by advancing age or other neurological diseases.

Krill is also a more environmentally sustainable source of omega-3, and the raw material is harvested from suppliers certified in environmental sustainability.

 

Indications for use: For correct use of the product, it is recommended to keep the packaging away from light and at temperatures not exceeding 25 °C. This is a precaution to reduce oxidisation of polyunsaturated fatty acids.

SPORT: “necessary and indispensable” supplement when the athlete is on a diet low in lipids or fish (e.g. to reduce overweight/fat mass or give greater definition to muscle mass) or to combat inflammation.

DAILY LIFE: useful in dealing with low-calorie, hypolipidic diets over a long period of time with the possibility of inducing an omega-3 fatty acid deficiency state.

Dosage: 1-2 capsules to be taken before main meals.

Packaging: 60 soft capsules
