120 softgels Price: $99.00
As a rule small fish get eaten by bigger fish who get eaten by BIGGER fish, which means that the higher it is on the food chain, the greater the opportunity for all the toxins and metals from the fish it's eaten to be concentrated in its fat.
Krill, tiny shrimp-like creatures, inhabit the lowest rung of the food ladder, dining mainly on plankton, which are the actual Omega 3 factories. As a result, krill enjoy a low risk of being contaminated by the mercury or other toxins present in their large fish cousins. Krill represent the largest biomass in the ocean. Their oil is the best source of essential brain fats available on the planet. (Maybe this is why dolphins are having so much fun!)
Not only does krill oil provide substantial amounts of EPA and DHA but it also contains a rich supply of another group of critical fatty substances necessary for brain and nerve cell membranes to function properly: phospholipids, which play important roles in signal transmission, in energy generation, and in the construction of the insulation coating myelin, which helps speed the conduction along the brain's communication pathways like a mega-hertz high speed computer.
The Omega 3 fatty acids in krill oil are bound to these phospholipids. This unique relationship greatly facilitates the passage of the fatty acid molecules through your intestinal wall making them much more bioavailable (easily incorporated by the body). The predominant phospholipids in krill oil is phosphatidylcholine, making it a rich source of choline, which many studies have demonstrated as being important in brain development, learning, and memory. It is also the precursor for the vital memory neurotransmitter acetylcholine (ACH).
Krill oil also naturally contains high concentrations of a number of healthy antioxidant compounds that not only protect the krill oil, but also protect your brain when you consume it. These include Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Canthasanthin, and Astaxanthin. The latter forms a special linkage with EPA and, thus making it more readily available to the body than other antioxidants on the market. For this reason, while consumption of fish oil breaks down, and therefore decreases your body's antioxidant concentration, krill oil actually increases levels of antioxidants in the body.
