Anyone hear of krill oil? To be honest, I have not heard of krill oil until Viva Labs contacted me about hosting a giveaway on my dad blog (I’m giving away a month’s supply). When I hear krill, I think about the litter critters in Happy Feet 2. From what I read, it appears krill oil is good for you. It’s suppose to protect your heart, lower your cholesterol, fight PMS symptoms (I don’t actually have this problem), combat inflammation, optimize your brain’s capabilities, fight aging and boost your overall health and well-being.
Viva Labs Krill Oil is a great source of Omega 3′s, especially EPA and DHA benefits, which are the two essential fatty acids the body needs to maintain excellent health.
Viva Labs Krill Oil contains an excellent supply of astaxanthin, which is a red pigment found in aquatic livestock such as krill, shrimp, lobster, mussel, crab and other seafood sources. Astaxanthin is known as a very powerful anti-oxidant that can help rid the body of free radicals that contribute to various diseases and illnesses. Astaxanthin is also known for its anti-aging capabilities.
Krill oil is better than fish oil because krill oil’s Omega 3 structure is linked together in a different form compared to fish oil. The essential fatty acids in fish oil are made up in triglyceride form, whereas krill oil is linked together in phospholipid form — the same structure as the fat cells in the human body. According to Viva Labs, this makes absorption of Omega 3s faster and easier.
