Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Unfortunately, many people don’t get enough omega-3s.
Twinlab’s Krill Essentials™ Omega-3 Cardio Krill Oil™ contains Superba Pure Krill Oil, which has a unique and substantial offering of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA in phospholipid form. This phospholipid form is more bioavailable than omega-3 triglycerides found in traditional fish oil products, because this phospholipid form of fatty acids closely resembles those found in the human brain, and is more easily recognized, incorporated and utilized by the body.* Combined with the naturally occurring antioxidant astaxanthin, this phospholipid helps to prevent oxidation, which can lower the quality of omega-3 fatty acids from fish. To further support heart health, we’ve added vitamins B6, B12 and folic acid to the formula, which studies have shown help to maintain healthy levels of homocysteine, a protein that can build up in the blood.*
To help maximize freshness and minimize impact on the krill population and surrounding ecosystem, Superba Pure Krill Oil is manufactured using a sustainable method of fishing called Eco-Harvesting™. Working only with fisheries that employ sustainable harvesting practices, this method utilizes a specially designed system that brings live, fresh krill directly onboard the boat, where processing begins immediately. This is important because krill have very powerful digestive enzymes that typically self-destruct before they can be processed, which with traditional krill harvesting, can be several weeks. Eco-Harvesting prevents degradation by these enzymes and preserves the important nutrients found in krill. The unique Eco-Harvesting system also contains a special mechanism that picks out any unwanted marine catch and releases it back into the water unharmed, helping to maintain the ecosystem.
