Dr. Mercola’s Krill Oil (Essential Omega-3) (60 Capsules)
Dr. Mercola’s Krill Oil is a ‘must’ for anyone wanting to fight the signs of aging, and anyone wanting to upgrade their overall health a level more. And using new and improved Dr. Mercola’s Krill Oil means you get more krill working on your behalf – for your health.
Dr. Mercola’s Krill Oil includes a rich source of omega-3s with DHA and EPA – along with protective antioxidants and phospholipids – promoting your health with vital 3-pronged support.*
The unique and synergistic blend of ingredients in pure krill oil isn’t found in fish oil – or anywhere else in nature. Research shows that it provides healthy support to many organs and systems in your body, including*:
- Nervous System
- Immune System
Krill’s Secret Weapon
Unlike fish oils, pure krill oil carries omega-3s in the form of phospholipids – liposomes or little packages that deliver the fatty acids directly to your body’s cells.
Scientific evidence to date has shown that the safest and most effective carriers of EPA and DHA are these phospholipids.
Unfortunately, standard fish oils (and inferior krill oil brands) lack this phospholipid complex. Instead they contain omega-3 fatty acids in the less-beneficial form of free triglycerides.
Why are phospholipids important?
They are the building blocks for your cell membranes, regulating cellular transport by functioning as ‘gate-keepers.’* In this role, they protect cell membranes from free radical attack.*
This unique relationship between the phospholipids and omega-3 fatty acids greatly facilitates the passage of the fatty acid molecules through your intestinal wall.* This helps you in two ways…
- Makes the omega-3 fats in New and Improved Krill Oil significantly more bioavailable than those in fish oil by allowing EPA and DHA to directly enter your cells.
- Improves your omega-3 to omega-6 ratio.
Another important fact: The most predominant phospholipid in pure krill oil is phosphatidyl choline, which is partially composed of choline.
Numerous studies have demonstrated the importance of choline in brain development, learning and memory.* In fact, choline is particularly important for fetal and infant brain development in pregnant and nursing women.*
Choline is the precursor for the vital neurotransmitter acetylcholine (which sends nerve signals to the brain) and for trimethylglycine, a recognized liver protector.*
Further, it also boasts a full complement of necessary antioxidants not seen in fish or cod liver oil…
Delivered in a Licaps Capsule
New and Improved Krill Oil is delivered in a “Licaps®” capsule instead of a softgel or caplique. Licaps use innovative “Fusion Technology” to seal a 2-piece capsule without the use of banding.
This extraordinary liquid capsule technology can provide many beneficial advantages over others because it…
- Reduces oxidation potential by flushing the liquid formulation with nitrogen during the capsule-filling process – Creates a ‘freshness bubble’
- Ensures 2-piece capsules are hermetically sealed to significantly reduce the potential for leakage – Yields a precisely tight, one-piece capsule
- Enhances shelf-life through exemplary filling and sealing processes
The bottom line with Licaps… possibility for leakage is virtually reduced to zero while absorption is enhanced.
*WARNING: If you are allergic to shellfish, have a blood coagulation disorder, or are taking anticoagulants such as Warfarin (Coumadin), do not use Krill Oil. Also, Krill Oil is very stable and will last up to 2 years. However, do not store it in the freezer or refrigerator; extended exposure to temperatures higher than 100 degrees or lower than 50 degrees diminish effectiveness of the phosopholipid ingredients.
