Krill Oil has become a popular choice to support optimal health thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties. As a small shrimp-like crustacean, Krill makes up the world’s largest single species marine biomass.
What makes Superba Krill™ oil superior to other Krill oils is that it is made from Euphausia Superba, commonly known as Antarctic Krill. These are the largest krill, typically weighing up to two grams and growing to six centimetres long. Superba Krill™ is from the Southern Oceans, the only oceans in the world that remain unpolluted by the toxic heavy metals now found in many fish oils.
Why Is Superba Krill™ Oil Superior To Fish Oils?
Superba Krill™ provides Omega-3s in Phospholipid form for better absorption, plus Astaxanthin to support better EPA and DHA delivery and stability, compared to fish oils. It also includes Choline, an essential building block our body needs for optimal liver health.
Thanks to its unique and natural nutrient profile, Superba Krill™ Oil has been cited as beneficial for the following health areas, including the heart, liver, brain, joints and much more. It has high amounts of Omega-3 fatty acids (EPA/DHA) alongside:
- Phospholipids – These help omega-3’s integrate into the blood cell membranes leading to a higher level of omega-3’s when compared with triglyceride omega-3 sources
- Choline – Choline is a natural constituent of Krill Oil as part of its phospholipid makeup (phosphatidylcholine). It’s essential for many body functions, such as nerve signalling and liver and muscle function. Our body can’t make enough on its own. Therefore, we must obtain it from our diet.
- Astaxanthin – A natural antioxidant that gives Krill Oil its red colour but also protects the oil from oxidation, eliminating the need to add preservatives
As a powerful Omega-3 supplement, Superba Krill™ Oil has been shown in studies to be beneficial in the following areas:
- Heart and Cardiovascular Health Support
- Joint Health
- Brain Health
- Eye Health
- Liver Health Support
- Skin Health
- Inflammation Relief
- …and much more!
Specific Superba Krill™ Oil Health Benefits
Heart and Cardiovascular Health
Studies show that EPA and DHA are essential for many health benefits. A meta-analysis which included data from over ten studies found that Omega-3 supplements from fish oil lowered the risk of heart attack and death from coronary heart disease.  While other studies suggest that high doses of EPA reduce the risk of major cardiovascular events, including heart attack, stroke, and heart failure. 
For joint health, high-strength DHA and EPA are beneficial for reducing joint pain intensity when taken for 3-4 months as part of randomised controlled trials. Participants found that morning stiffness in their joints and pain was significantly reduced.  A systematic review evaluating the effect of marine fish oil on arthritic disease concluded that patients with RA experienced a reduction in pain overall. 
Omega-3 fatty acids, especially DHA, are highly concentrated in the brain, making it essential for cognitive health, brain development and function. Omega-3s are easily transported across the blood-brain barrier and into the brain in a phospholipid form.
Krill Oil phospholipids from Superba Krill™ Oil are clinically proven to efficiently increase Omega-3 levels in the blood, nourishing the brain with critical nutrients naturally found in the brain, making it an excellent way to support cognitive brain function. One study from as early as 2013 already concluded that the Krill Oil phospholipid was more effective in activating cognitive function in healthy, elderly males aged 61-72 than other omega-3 counterparts, including sardine oil. 
Krill Oil is proven to reduce inflammation and improve symptoms of dry eyes. A Krill Oil study has found that it has positive effects on reducing tear osmolarity (salt in your tears) and increasing tear film stability, which can lead to eye irritation, blinking and redness. 
Consuming too few Omega-3s and too many Omega-6s can lead to an imbalance in the Omega-6: Omega-3 ratio, which has been shown to play a part in the severity of dry eye symptoms. Taking an Omega-3 fatty acid supplement, such as those found in Krill Oil, may, therefore, actively help to relieve symptoms of dry eye, as recommended by medical associations such as the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO).
Krill Oil phospholipids have been found to affect and have anti-inflammatory benefits for liver health. In particular, Krill Oil has been found to positively affect fatty acid composition in the blood, fat, tissue and liver. Krill Oil helps to keep your liver healthy, while Choline contributes to normal liver function and normal fat metabolism. This helps to prevent the buildup of fat in the liver cells associated with fatty liver.
Phospholipid Omega-3 fatty acids are vital to ensure the body can regulate inflammation, a key stressor on the liver. Studies have also shown that Omega-3 supplementation has beneficial effects on metabolic risk factors, liver enzymes, liver fat content and liver damage.
Krill Oil supplements can improve skin health as a natural phospholipid complex of marine omega-3 EPA, DHA, Choline, and Astaxanthin. These tiny red capsules help to support healthy levels of hydration and elasticity in the skin, which comes with anti-ageing properties.
Is Krill Oil Sustainable?
Superba Krill™ Oil is derived from the Aker Biomarine krill fishery in Antarctica; this is regarded as the world’s most sustainable fishery, meaning all of their products are MSC and Friends of the Sea Certified Sustainable. Fully traceable with every batch, all the krill oil harvesting vessels are food-grade and approved by the Norwegian food safety authority.
Krill Oil is highly recommended if you are looking for natural anti-inflammatory support for eyes, brain function, heart and cardiovascular health, joint pain, liver health, skin health, etc.
