NKO Krill Oil Benefits
Neptune Krill Oil is a whole lipid oil extract taken from the Antartic krill, which are shrimp-like crustaceans mostly found in cold ocean areas. Krill are mainly harvested from the Antarctic seas around Japan. It is said that 100,000 tons a year are harvested which is one fiftieth of the catch quota.
NKO differs from other marine oils due the fact that DHA, EPA and omega-3 fatty acids are attached and carried by phospholipids. In simpler terms, this means the good stuff in krill oil is easily absorbed into our body's mitochondria and cell nucleus. The anti-oxidant potency is supposedly 48 times more potent then fish oil (in terms of ORAC).
Many studies have shown that Neptune Krill Oil is very effective in lowering bad cholesterol (LDL) and raising good cholesterol (HDL). Krill oil has alsoo been shown to be effective in treating pain caused by inflammation. If you have rheumatoid arthritis, this supplement may well be worth checking out. Krill oil is a far healthier option for treating aches pains then taking ibuprofen which can cause damage to the stomach and intestines. Another advantage krill oil has over fish oil is the lack of fishy burps you can get with some fish oils. The one disadvantage is the cost but like all things, you get what you pay for!
I recently received a three month supply of krill oil and am interested in seeing if I can feel any difference (mostly chronic back pain). There is lots of information coming out on the benefits of krill oil and I suggest you do your research before dropping your hard earned money on supplements.
Listen to your Dr.!
