MR_What is krill oil

Monitoring our heart health is important. Krill oil helps support your heart health, which makes your job a whole lot easier.

But – what is krill oil? And how does it work to support heart health?

Krill are tiny shrimp-like crustaceans that whales eat. Their oil contains Omega-3 fatty acids, which can be beneficial to your heart health. There are different types of Omega-3 Fatty Acids, but the two main important ones are EPA and DHA. These fatty acids are found naturally in certain fish, but often times we may not get enough fish in our diet, which is why taking a supplement of krill oil can be beneficial. The oil from the krill is put into small capsules that are used to supplement1    our diet.

Aside from helping support hearth health, krill oil can also help:

  • Support healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels
  • Support joint health
  • Support brain health

If you’re still asking yourself, “but – what IS krill oil?” – Just know that it’s a healthy supplement, as it is found in one of the cleanest oceans2.

† Supportive, but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA Omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. ♦The MegaRed 3X formulation uses a self microemulsifying drug delivery system (SMEDDS) technology to support high absorption. Studies show that applying the SMEDDS technology to highly concentrated fish oils dramatically improve the absorption of both EPA and DHA
