What is Krill Oil?
BULK POWDERS™ Krill Oil is a potent source of Omega 3 essential fatty acids, with higher amounts of EPA and DHA than equivalent quantities of fish oil. The benefits of Omega 3 are extensive and already well known. If you’re looking for the most potent fish oil available, then Krill Oil 500mg Softgels would be an excellent choice.
Krill Oil is extracted from an ocean-dwelling, shrimp-like crustacean, called the krill. Krill Oil has a huge range of health benefits, mainly deriving from its high natural levels of the Omega 3 fatty acids Eicosapentanoic Acid (EPA) and Docosahexanoic Acid (DHA).
Where to find Krill Oil: The source of krill used in our krill oil softgels is an Antarctic species known as the Euphausia Superba, which lives deep in the Antarctic waters of the Southern Ocean. Due to being at the bottom of the food chain, the Euphausia Superba is free from contaminants such as heavy metals and pesticides, which you will be happy to know means that our krill oil softgels are too!
Krill Oil v Fish Oil – Which is better?
Our krill oil softgels and fish oil softgels both contain high levels of Omega 3, in particular the fatty acids EPA and DHA. On this basis it would be easy to assume that neither is really ‘better’ as such. However, research has shown that the Omega 3 content of krill is actually up to 48 times more potent than that of regular Omega 3. The reason for this higher potency is due to the phospholipid structure of the Omega 3 in krill oil, as opposed to the triglyceride structure of the Omega 3 content in fish oil.
On this basis, although krill oil softgels are more expensive than Omega 3 fish oils, their considerably higher potency actually makes them a better buying proposition from a value for money perspective. Of course at BULK POWDERS™ we aim to offer you the lowest price possible on all products, here we’ve done it yet again with another krill oil UK low price!
Krill Oil can also be referred to as: Krill Softgels, Euphausia Superba, Antarctic Krill Oil.
