Health Products - Krill Oil

Krill Oil is an extract of the abundant Antarctic Krill, a term applied to describe over 80 species of open-ocean crustaceans. Of the seven species of euphausiid crustaceans commonly found in the Southern Ocean, only two of them regularly occur in dense swarms and are of particular interest to commercial fisheries: They are E. superba and E. crystallorophias.

E. superba is the species commonly referred to as “Antarctic krill” and it is a widespread species, which is subject to significant commercial fishing in the Southern Ocean and in the waters around Japan.

Krill are the primary food of many whales and fish species, and now due to the shortage of fish in our oceans due to over fishing,  krill has now entered the human food chain.  We more familiar with krill's larger cousins which we know as shrimp, lobster and crayfish, but krill are not harvested as a primary food, they are harvested for their tiny amount of oil (body fat).

Krill oil is not a major source of oil for the Omega-3 fatty acid market, but it has generated a great deal of interest in the last few years because of the unique form of the lipid in the krill.  Krill is a very delicate creature and their digestive tract contains powerful enzymes,  this causes the krill to deteriorate rapidly once they are caught so processing must be done at sea to preserve the quality of the raw material.

It takes many tones of krill to produce a small amount of oil which is about 3% by volume resulting in 97% waste that is either dumped at sea or incorporated into animal feed.

Touted as a remarkable new product featuring phospholipids specially integrated with omega-3 essential fatty acids - EPA and DHA - for supporting healthy cell membranes, it is generally recognised that krill is a nutritious food and krill oil may be valuable in helping people recover from serious illnesses.

A less expensive and more sustainable source of essential fatty acids is found in flax seed oil.

  1. Fresh Original Organic Flax seed oil capsules or bulk
  2. Flax Boost provides a vegetarian source of secondary Omega-3 & Omega-6, with 0.2g Stearidonic Acid/100 designed to kick-start the body's ability to utilise Omega-3 EFAs
  3. Flax Balance; a blend of fresh Flax and Safflower seed oils formulated to provide the 1:1 ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6 essential fatty acids (EFAs) needed to maintain good health.
