Is Krill the key to omega-3?

Last week, we were excited to be featured in a news story that highlighted some benefits of omega-3 and described Krill Oil by FutureYou as the most concentrated krill oil supplement available.

The story was used by the press after new research was published from the University of Amsterdam and University of Leiden. The findings reinforced the importance of having high levels of omega-3 in our blood. Omega-3 fatty acids are present in oily fish, and it is known that regularly getting enough through your diet is important for long-term health.

A few members of the FutureYou team were especially pleased, as they’ve been taking krill oil for a while now. You might have seen our popular blog from last year, in which they started testing it and had strong results.

­It is traditional to take cod liver oil as a health supplement because it contains high levels of omega 3 fatty acids, which cannot be produced by the body. Omega-3 is known to boost the brain, protect heart health and support vision. Yet krill oil is now recognised by researchers as the best source of omega-3 and has become popular in the world’s biggest supplement market, the United States.

That’s because, unlike fish oil, it naturally combines the omega 3 with phospholipids. The body recognises phospholipids as part of its own cell membrane and readily incorporates the whole complex, meaning that more beneficial ingredients are absorbed.

Krill oil also contains choline, a vital neurotransmitter that is also important for healthy liver function.

    I am concerned about potential for the processed oil to go rancid which would be more harmful than not taking it?

    Can you answer the concerns of environmental organisations that the ever increasing harvesting of krill is threatening the pristine waters of the Antarctic, already under threat from global warming, and is therefore a threat to whales, seals and penguins that live there?

      Hello Anne

      I completely understand your concern regarding our Krill Oil product, as Krill is at the bottom of the food chain and so many species native to the Antarctic rely on it for survival. The last thing we want to do is sourcing irresponsibly and putting our planet's health in jeopardy.

      I can assure you that our Krill Oil is sustainably farmed and Eco Harvesting certified. Our manufacturer Aker BioMarine believe in access to quality nutrition without compromising our planet’s future.

      If you would like to read more about if, then please follow this link: https://www.akerbiomarine.com/sustainability.

      We do not currently have an alternative, but I have passed on your concerns to our product development team for future consideration.

      Kind Regards,
