					What's KRILL OIL ?

Krill are shrimp-like crustaceans that are about one to six centimeters big. They live
in the sea, where they eat chiefly on phytoplankton.

Krill oil, the oil that's discovered abundantly in krill, is extracted and advertised as a
nutritional supplement.

The algae that krill feed on produces the bright red pigment astaxanthin that causes
krill and other crustaceans for example lobster and prawn their reddish-pink
coloration. Antioxidants protect our mortal cells from hurt by free radicals, harmful
substances that are believed to contribute to certain degenerative illness. Unlike
numerous other antioxidants, astaxanthin goes over the blood-brain barrier, where it
could theoretically protect the eye, brain and central nervous system from free radical
impairment.

Pretty impressive, wouldn't you say?

To top it all off, krill oil also contains astaxanthin - a unique marine-source flavonoid
- that produces a special bond with the EPA and DHA, which permits direct
metabolism of the antioxidants, making them more bioavailable.
