Beneficial: The body runs better on Superba™ Krill omega-3s

Superba™ Krill omega-3s address many areas, such as: heart health, brain health, joint health, healthy inflammation and women’s health. The body better utilizes krill omega-3s because they are bound to phospholipids, which is unique among marine species. In studies, Superba™ Krill has been shown to increase the Omega-3 Index faster and more efficiently compared to other marine sources.

Sustainability: Superba™ Krill is harvested under the strictest sustainability protocols

Sustainability has been at the core of Aker BioMarine’s operations since its inception. Given the importance of krill as a keystone species in Antarctica, the company’s commitment to ensuring its future and the future of the animals that depend on krill as a primary food source is paramount.

The Phospholipid Advantage: Getting more omega-3s to the places you need them most

Phospholipids are present in every cell in the human body. They represent a distinct subgroup of lipids whose most vital role is determining the structure of the cell membrane. Krill omega-3s are unique in that they are bound to phospholipids, as opposed to triglyceride-bound omega-3s found in other marine and algal sources, making them preferentially utilized by the body. In fact, studies show that phospholipid-bound omega-3s get into cells up to 60% more efficiently.

“As krill continues to gain popularity as an ideal source of omega-3s, it is important to help people understand the full story on krill, including what it is, where it comes from and how it can improve human health,” said Becky Wright, Communications & Marketing Manager, Aker BioMarine. “It is also important to educate consumers about the sustainability practices used in harvesting krill, especially those looking for environmentally-friendly products and green practices. To that end, SuperbaKrill is certified by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) as being sustainable and 100% traceable from sea to shelf. Come visit us at superbakrill.com and see for yourself why krill represents the next generation of omega-3s.”
