077 – What’s So Special About Krill Oil – My Interview with Christopher Speed

The Unique Benefits of Antarctic Krill Oil

Antartic KrillThere is a lot of interest in Krill Oil. There are significant benefits and some of those benefits are unique to Krill Oil. There has also been a lot of hype and claims for Krill Oil that are not accurate. It can be confusing for consumers. In this interview we will be exploring the health benefits of Krill Oil. Krill Oil contains important omega-3 fatty acids as well as phosphatidyl serine and astaxanthin. Phosphatidy serine and astaxanthin both have benefits in addition to the omega-3 fatty acids.

The particular Krill Oil we will be discussing is Superba Krill from Aker BioMarine. Superba Krill Oil is one of those unique patented, clinically studied supplements that we like so much. There are some important clinical studies that reveal some of the benefits. Superba™ Krill is rich in phospholipid omega-3s EPA and DHA, which are more bio-efficient than other marine oils. Phospholipid-bound omega-3 fatty acids are water dispersible, making them gentler on the stomach and more readily absorbed by the body. And with phospholipid omega-3s, less is more—smaller capsules are easy to swallow, easy to digest (no more burps!), and better absorbed by the body.

Phospholipids are natural, integral parts of cells—they are structural components of cell surface membranes and the membranes within the cells. Studies have shown benefits for joints, heart, brain and inflammation.
