NKO®: Best Source of Omega3
Neptune Krill Oil™ is a patented marine oil that contains omega-3 (EPA and DHA), phospholipids, and antioxidants (astaxanthin, vitamins A and E).
Known as the gatekeepers of human cells, phospholipids make up every cell membrane in the human body and help protect and keep our cells healthy. Since the EPA and DHA in NKO® are attached to phospholipids, they are 2.5 times more bioavailable for use by cells within our body than conventional fish oils.
In NKO®, the distinctive nature of omega-3 phospholipids is that they can easily disperse in both oil and water. Contrary to omega-3 triglycerides found in fish oil, which are insoluble in water and do not disperse completely in the stomach, which is mostly a water environment, NKO® allows an improved interaction with the digestive enzymes. Due to their insolubility, fish oils tend to float on top of stomach fluids causing fishy burps, an unpleasant side effect that will not occur when taking NKO®.
Neptune Krill Oil™ also contains astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant that is attached to the omega-3s. It has been demonstrated that astaxanthin helps rid the body of the “free radicals” that contribute to damaging our cells, helping to reduce the aging process.
Neptune Krill Oil™ is extracted from 100% pure Antarctic krill, it is free of potentially harmful levels of heavy metals and contaminants, and Neptune ensures that it is harvested in an environmentally responsible fashion.
Finally, NKO® is extracted at a GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) certified plant in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada.
By using a patented cold-vacuum extraction process, Neptune Ocean Extract™ maximizes the active ingredients found in krill, offering the highest quality in krill oil.
