The powerful omega-3 from the Antarctic ocean

What is krill oil?

Krill oil is omega-3 rich oil extracted from Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba), a floating mass of small, shrimp-like crustaceans.
In krill, the omega-3 fatty acids are bound to phospholipids, which makes them more absorbable than the triglyceride bound form, as it is the case with fish.

What makes the krill oil of Nutrisan so exceptional?

1. The unique composition

The composition of our krill oil is remarkable and extraordinary. It consists of multiple bioactive components: omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA), astaxanthin, phospholipids, choline, vitamin A and Vitamin E.

Astaxanthin is a very powerful and natural antioxidant. It protects the krill oil against oxidation and makes it naturally stable. Moreover, astaxanthin is a strong antioxidant in the human body.

In addition, the phospholipid structure of EPA and DHA provides a very stable and bioavailable form of omega-3. EPA and DHA are good for the heart° and DHA supports normal brain function and eyesight°°.

Finally krill feeds on plankton and omega-3 rich algae. Because of this low rank in the food chain, there is no accumulation of toxins and heavy metals in this small animal.

°The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of at least 250 mg EPA and DHA.

°°The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 250 mg DHA.

2. Sustainable catch

The catch of the krill intended for the production of our krill oil is fully compliant with the agreements of the CCAMLR or Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources.

  • Respect for the ecosystem and other fauna such as fish.
  • No overfishing: The annual krill catch is 40 times less than the permitted quota.
  • The patented production process also focuses on sustainability.
  • This reduces the impact on the environment to a minimum and supports responsible management of Antarctic waters.

3. Easy to swallow and completely odorless capsules thanks to licaps technology.

4. No fish taste or burping + the ideal omega-3 for people who have difficulty digesting fats.

Omega-3 from fish oil tends to collect at the top of the stomach, causing indigestion and an aftertaste of fish. Omega-3 from krill oil distributes evenly in the stomach, does not cause reflux and digests easily.

5. Better absorption of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, so a lower daily intake is sufficient.

Phospholipids from krill have a higher bioavailability than triglycerides from fish. Because of this, a low dosage of omega-3 from krill oil has the same effect as a high dosage from fish.

Krill oil supplements are much more efficient as an omega-3 source than regularly eating fish.
