Mercolas Krill Oil capsules (180 - 90 days)
Antarctic krill oil has a unique secret weapon that makes it a top choice over fish oils. Unlike fish oils, krill oil carries its omega-3s, EPA, and DHA, in the form of phospholipids – liposomes or little packages that deliver the fatty acids directly to your body’s cells. This helps make the omega-3 fats in krill oil more bioavailable than those in fish oil to help improve your omega-3 to omega-6 ratio. With Mercola Krill Oil you don’t have to be concerned about potential contaminants and pollutants often found in fish oils and certain fish you might eat. Because krill are at the bottom of the food chain, they don’t accumulate pollutants like other fish species. And the krill used for our Krill Oil come from clear, pure Antarctic waters. Here are just some of the key advantages that Mercola Krill Oil has over other krill and fish oils:

  • The fishery that provides the krill for our Krill Oil was the ONLY fishery to receive an “A” grade for sustainability.
  • Is MSC-certified – “Boat to plate” certification and auditing ensures harvesting to manufacturing adheres to MSC’s chain of custody standard. Krill are harvested in a sustainable way that also ensures no by-catch (non-krill species) is captured.
  • Provides traceability and trust – Manufacturer provides traceability of krill from its source through final processing in a controlled value chain.
  • Employs a unique Patent-Pending Harvesting Method – This technology helps ensure top quality krill oil by delivering the krill to tanks on the boat alive (unlike most other manufacturers). This allows for fresh processing of delicate krill.
  • Uses superior encapsulation – With the use of a Licaps® capsule, Krill Oil is delivered in a unique hermetically-sealed protective capsule.
  • Provides enhanced shelf-life – Exemplary filling and sealing process incorporated in encapsulation helps improve krill oil longevity by helping prevent oxidation.
  • Krill Oil is a must-have to support a healthy heart, overall joint comfort, and your immune system (just to name a few of its many potential benefits).

What Makes Mercola Antarctic Krill Oil a Superior Source of Omega-3 Fats?

Dr. Mercola’s Krill Oil provides multi-system health benefits with greater bioavailability and much better absorption than fish oil, and without the fishy aftertaste, side effects, or contaminants typical of fish oil supplements*
The fishery that supplies our krill oil was the first krill harvesting company to attain MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) certification of sustainability – and remains one of the only two certified fisheries with ‘boat to plate” certification
This special formula contains 2mg of Organic Astaxanthin to support eye, brain, heart, cell, skin, muscles, and immune health*
Many people have been led to believe that fish oil is their best option for getting the essential omega-3 fats DHA and EPA.

However, few realize that fish oil has many pitfalls. It tends to be contaminated with mercury and other toxic heavy metals. Plus, because it is low in antioxidants, fish oil is highly susceptible to spoilage and can go rancid quickly.

Rancid, or oxidized oil is one of your body’s worst enemies. It can ignite inflammation and put your organ and cellular health at risk, especially your brain and heart health.

I’m convinced there’s a much better way to get your omega-3 fats. Aside from eating wild Alaskan salmon every day, krill oil is a great way to get the essential omega-3 fats DHA and EPA. Krill oil comes from krill, tiny shrimp-like creatures that live in frigid Northern waters.

When you compare krill oil to fish oil, the differences are overwhelming. Studies suggest that krill oil, when compared to fish oil:

Environmentally sustainable marine krill makes up the largest biomass in the world
Is as much as 48 times more effective, meaning you need less of it
Is more absorbable since its omega-3 fats are attached to phospholipids for easy transport into your cells, including your brain cells
Contains phosphatidylcholine which improves krill’s bioavailability and contributes choline which is important for brain development, learning and memory*
Naturally contains astaxanthin, nature’s most potent antioxidant, to help maintain its stability and resistance to oxidation
Isn’t prone to contamination from mercury and heavy metals like fish oil, because the krill feeds on phytoplankton instead of contaminated fish
Is environmentally sustainable because krill makes up the largest biomass in the world – only 1 to 2 percent of the total krill biomass is harvested each year!
Unlike Fish Oil, Krill Oil Controls The ‘Switches’ to Your Vital Biochemical Processes

The omega-3 fats in krill oil help switch your body’s biochemical processes on or off
As you can see from the above impressive list, fish oil’s shortcomings are easily avoided with krill oil.

Krill oil solves the dilemma by containing both antioxidants and easily absorbed omega-3s. And because krill is only harvested from the pristine waters of Antarctica, they are largely free from pollution and contamination. Most likely you know about the many health benefits of omega-3 fats. Krill oil offers them and more… Here’s a recent finding about krill oil that you may not be aware of… Krill oil benefits your genetic expression and metabolism far more than fish oil does. Genes control nearly every biochemical process in your body, and any gene can be switched on or off. Guess what controls these crucial ‘switches – or your gene expression’? Nutrients like the omega-3 fats DHA and EPA. So how could that influence your health? Here’s a clue…

Researchers recently compared the effects of krill oil and fish oil on gene expression in the livers of mice. When mice were fed the two different types of oil, only krill oil (and not fish oil) was shown to:

  • Support glucose metabolism in the liver*
  • Support already healthy lipid metabolism*
  • Support mitochondrial energy production*
  • Support already normal cholesterol synthesis*
  • Help regulate the mitochondrial respiratory chain, thereby supporting overall mitochondrial health*
  • The Total Package, Krill Oil Contains Powerful Antioxidants AND Essential Omega-3 Oils
  • Krill oil potential benefits
  • Krill oil affects your heart, joints, muscles, brain and nervous system, mood, and immune health*
  • When I first learned about this pure marine oil, I was extremely impressed with the many benefits and the solid research behind its unique combination of antioxidants, omega-3 fats, and other nutrients.*

Krill oil contains naturally occurring astaxanthin and a flavonoid with a novel molecular structure. Flavonoids are powerful antioxidants, but, before now, they haven’t been found in anything except plants like vegetables, fruits, and algae.

Astaxanthin and this unique marine-source flavonoid create a special bond with EPA and DHA, allowing direct metabolism of the antioxidants.* Plus, unlike fish oils which can quickly go rancid, astaxanthin helps manage krill oil spoilage.*

Here’s a quick glance of just some of Krill oil’s many potential benefits:

Supports a healthy heart
Helps maintain blood sugar levels already in the normal range
Supports healthy joints and overall joint comfort
Supports a healthy brain and nervous system function and development
Helps maintain cholesterol levels already in the normal range
Supports your immune system
Supports a healthy mood
Krill’s Secret Weapon for Getting the Omega-3s Into Your Cells
Unlike fish oils, krill oil carries omega-3s in the form of phospholipids – little packages that deliver the fatty acids directly through your cell membranes and into your body's cells.

Scientific evidence shows that the safest and most effective carriers of EPA and DHA are these phospholipids. Unfortunately, standard fish oils lack this phospholipid complex. Instead, they only contain omega-3 fatty acids in the less-beneficial forms of ethyl esters or triglycerides.

Why are phospholipids so important? In a nutshell, they…

Provide the building blocks for your cell membranes*
Regulate cellular transport by functioning as “gate-keepers”*
Help protect your cell membranes from free radicals*
This unique relationship between the phospholipids and omega-3 fatty acids greatly facilitates the passage of the fatty acid molecules through your intestinal wall.* This helps you in three ways:

Makes the omega-3 fats in krill oil more bioavailable than those in fish oil*
Allows EPA and DHA to directly enter your cells*
Improves your omega-3 to omega-6 ratio*

Although some omega-6 fats are good for your health, the balance of omega-6s to omega-3s is crucial.* Unfortunately, most people consume an overabundance of omega-6 fats found in processed foods. The phospholipids in krill oil can help balance this ratio and provide you with more omega-3 fats.*

This krill oil phospholipid “secret weapon” just adds more solid support to why I strongly recommend krill oil – and especially my Krill Oil.

We’ve taken my Antarctic Krill Oil to the next level with a very special formulation…

An Additional Bonus… Organic Astaxanthin, the ‘King of the Carotenoid Antioxidants’
When it comes to antioxidants, it’s hard to beat astaxanthin for all it offers…

Astaxanthin is different from other antioxidants in that it can cross your blood-brain and blood-retinal barriers, and actually becomes part of your cell membranes. Plus it can reach just about every cell in your body and acts on at least five different inflammation pathways.

Organic astaxanthin
Just one of the many benefits astaxanthin offers is support for eye health and vision
These unique features enable astaxanthin to offer you a full array of potential benefits, including:

Supports your body’s already healthy normal inflammatory response*
Helps protect all parts of your cells from free radical damage, including your heart cells’ mitochondrial membranes*
Supports eye health and aids blurred vision, eyestrain, and tired eyes*
Helps maintain a youthful appearance by affecting skin elasticity and skin wrinkling and DNA damage from sun exposure*
Supports immune function*
Protects your brain neurons and supports cognitive and psychomotor function*
Supports comfort and flexible movement, especially after exercise*
Because astaxanthin helps protect your mitochondria’s membranes, it may be especially beneficial to the parts of your body that contain the most mitochondria, like your heart, brain, liver, and muscles.*

For Your Health, We Source the Finest Organic Astaxanthin
wild salmon
Wild salmon gets its brilliant rosy hue from eating Haematococcus pluvialis microalgae
One of the best sources (if not the best) of naturally occurring astaxanthin is a very unique type of microalgae called Haematococcus pluvialis.

In fact, this is how sea creatures like salmon and krill get their brilliant red pigmentation – by eating this microalgae!

I can’t recommend just any astaxanthin. Over 95 percent of the astaxanthin on the market today is produced synthetically, much of it for feeding to farmed salmon. Petrochemical-derived astaxanthin is much less expensive than astaxanthin from H. pluvialis, but it’s absolutely unequal in value.

The H. pluvialis we source for our organic astaxanthin is grown in glass tubes connected with special hoses that don’t use plastics, like the PVC hoses other growers use. Flexible PVC contain phthalates – toxic chemicals and endocrine disruptors – that can leach into the astaxanthin oils.

Plus, our grower carefully controls what is fed to the astaxanthin-producing algae. All the nutrients are organic compliant and only those allowed by the National Organic Program to meet USDA organic certifications.

The whole growing process is audited to the USDA National Organic Program. Third party auditors check all nutrients used and audit the complete process on a yearly basis so you can be assured you receive nothing but Certified Organic astaxanthin.

As you know, krill oil naturally contains astaxanthin. To ensure you receive a healthy serving of astaxanthin with every capsule of krill oil, we’ve added 2 mg of organic astaxanthin from microalgae.

This combination of krill oil and extra astaxanthin provides all the additional benefits I’ve been discussing making our product truly unique.

Our Commitment to Quality and Species Sustainability

What does a sustainable supply of krill mean to the environment?
You can’t be too careful when shopping for Krill Oil. Unfortunately, there are cheap imitations and low-quality imposters. And quite often manufacturers take shortcuts at the expense of the environment and the krill themselves.

Harvesting krill in a commercially viable and environmentally sound way can be challenging. These are examples of some of the issues:

Traditional trawling methods where the krill is hauled up on deck and emptied into holding tanks before processing is unsustainable
Krill contains highly digestive enzymes and basically self-destruct before they can be processed
Regular trawling can bring in unwanted by-catch (fish, seals, etc.) potentially posing a threat to fragile marine eco-systems in the Antarctic
And, unfortunately these issues aren’t limited to just one or two fisheries…

A recent sustainability report of 24 fisheries by NGO Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP) found one third or 3.5 million tons of fish stocks destined for fish oil supplements are “poorly managed.”

I find this alarming… Simply, these types of shortcut practices aren’t acceptable to us, and I’m sure not to you, either. Fortunately, we found a supplier that takes a whole different approach…
