What is Krill oil?
Superba Krill™ oil is extracted from the Antarctic krill species Euphausia Superba. Krill are small shrimp-like crustaceans packed full of health promoting long-chain omega-3 fatty acids (EPA & DHA), phospholipids, choline and astaxanthin.
What makes it unique?
Superba Krill oil's natural combination and concentration of four key nutrients gives excellent opportunity for differentiation in the supplement market.
A growing body of evidence demonstrates krill oil's beneficial effects on health across multiple categories.
OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS EPA & DHA
These essential fatty acids are one of the most researched nutrients, with a wide range of health benefits for your heart, eyes, liver and brain.
Phospholipids help omega-3s integrate into the cell membranes and may be a better delivery form to the body’s organs than other marine oils.
Choline is an essential nutrient vital for many body functions such as nerve signaling, liver and muscle functioning. Our body can't make enough, therefore we must obtain it from our diet.
This natural antioxidant gives krill oil its beautiful red color. It also protects the oil from oxidation, eliminating the need to add preservatives.

meeting consumer needs
EASY TO SWALLOW
Phospholipids make krill oil’s omega-3s more bio-efficient and stable. This allows for smaller capsules when used in supplements.
NO FISHY AFTERTASTE
Krill oil’s phospholipid bound omega-3s mix well with stomach contents, preventing fishy aftertaste and other unpleasant digestive issues.
Phospholipid bound omega-3s are better utilized by our body's cells, and efficiently incorporated into the cell membranes.
The phospholipid factor in action
Superba Krill oil has no fishy aftertaste due to the naturally occurring phospholipid complex structure.

What are krill?
About the same size as an average paper clip, Antarctic Krill spend most of their life feeding on microscopic algae and play a key role in the oceans ecosystem, being an integral part of the survival of many marine species. Read more about these amazing animals.
Where do they come from?
Krill are present in most oceans around the world, however, they gather together in huge swarms in Antarctica to feed on microscopic algae. This makes it possible to harvest this powerful and nutrient rich little crustacean. Living in the pristine and unpolluted waters of the Southern Ocean means Antarctic krill are virtually free of environmental contaminants and toxins.
The sustainability of the krill fishery and the Antarctic Eco-system is our top priority to ensure minimal impact on the marine species who live there. Read more about our sustainable harvesting practices!
