Almost everyone knows that omega-3’s are incredible. You can’t open newspaper, or turn on a television without hearing about the powerful health benefits attached to regular omega-3 intake.
I have been a fan of Omega-3 DHA for at least 7 years. I consume it daily and give my toddler the DHA supplement every single day! Yes, we consume it as a family. And what not to like in this amazing, nature-given supplement?
While fish such as halibut, mackerel, sturgeon and tuna are all excellent sources of omega-3’s, the medical community has urged us to reduce our consumption of fish because of the pollutants involved with our marine communities.
Many people turn to nature-based omega-3 intake like flax seeds, algae and avocado’s. While these are also impactful in providing omega-3’s to our bodies, the amount we would need to consume on a daily basis to guarantee the optimal health benefits of high omega-3 intake – would be astronomical.
Algae for breakfast, lunch and dinner – well, it’s not exactly a dreamy solution! Not only would eating avocado’s daily be hard on your pocket book – but your waistline wouldn’t be doing so well either. However, it should be stated that any omega-3 intake, is certainly better than none, and these are still viable options for vegans and vegetarians.
The easiest way to ensure you are receiving optimal omega-3 intake (and in turn, the optimal health benefits associated with omega-3’s), is through daily supplementation. Krill Oil happens to be one of the most superior omega-3 supplements available on the market today. Why? Check these facts out.
Krill Oil contains a very powerful antioxidant called astaxanthin. This is something you won’t find in leading fish oil brands. Astaxanthin is considered a powerhouse in the family of antioxidants. It works to promote cellular health (more than important considering our bodies are made up of literally trillions of cells) and reduce inflammation within the body.
Inflammation is behind many serious health conditions such as heart disease and joint-related conditions like Arthritis. Because of astaxanthin, Krill Oil has 54X the antioxidant power than any fish oil product available.
Krill Oil is stored in phospholipid form. Phospholipids are fats naturally found in the human body, which makes the essential fatty acids easier for our body to break down and digest. Phospholipids guarantee faster absorption that’s easier on the body. Check out different size bottles of krill oil supplements HERE and HERE.
Phospholipids also mean that you won’t have to suffer through any of the uncomfortable (and embarrassing) ‘fish burps’ that come along with so many fish oil brands.
Contaminants – Or Lack Thereof!
While there are literally thousands of fish oil supplements available on the market today – most of them are manufactured using marine life that is stock full of contaminants such as PCB’s, mercury and other toxins due to our over polluted water system. It is because of these contaminants, that health care practitioners have advised us to reduce our fish intake to three portions a week.
When we use a fish oil supplement, while it may be providing omega-3 health benefits, it is also giving us a daily dose of toxic pollutants, which will certainly have negative effects on our health in the long term.
Krill are tiny crustaceans found deep within the oceanic community globally. Because they are not predatory marine life, they are virtually free of the dangerous contaminants found in so many fish. With Krill Oil – you get the health benefits worry free!
Krill are actually one of the largest biomasses on earth. Krill Oil harvesting is also strictly regulated, which means that for the small amount of Krill harvested for food and supplementation purposes, millions more are replacing them every year. You can enjoy the optimal health benefits associated with a superior omega-3 supplement, without any concerns regarding environmental sustainability.
As always, speak with your doctor whenever you are introducing a new supplement, medication, dietary change or exercise regime into your life. Your doctor will know the needs surrounding your health, and it’s always important to have them “in the know.”
The benefits associated with choosing a superior omega-3 supplement like Krill Oil, are extensive. And when it comes to your health, superior really is the only option.
