Krill Oil

Krill Oil is an oil that is derived from krill; it contains the same two fatty acids that Fish Oil contains (Eicosapentaenoic Acid, or EPA, and Docosahexaenoic Acid, DHA). However, a large portion of the EPA and DHA in krill is in the form of a phospholipid, with a phosphate group on the end of the fatty acid.

Unlike fish oil, krill oil carries omega-3’s in the form of phospholipids – a lipid compound that delivers the fatty acids directly to cells. These phospholipids are imperative because they provide the building blocks for cell membranes, regulate cellular transport, and help protect cell membranes from free radicals. Phospholipids also greatly facilitate the passage of the fatty acid molecules through the intestinal wall making them more bioavailable, allows EPA and DHA to directly enter cells, and improves the omega-3 to omega-6 ratio.

Astaxanthin is also an incredibly important component of krill oil, because unlike in fish oil, it protects the omega-3 fats along every stage of harvesting and processing to keep it from oxidizing. Astaxanthin (a carotenoid antioxidant) is produced by microalgae when water supply dries up, forcing it to protect itself from ultraviolet radiation by acting as a “force field” to protect from lack of nutrition or intense sunlight. This is the same mechanism that protects krill oil from oxidizing, which is critical since once a product oxidizes it becomes rancid, and may do more harm than good.

Both Omega-3’s and Astaxanthin have a huge impact on the immune system, and potentially can reduce overall inflammation. Astaxanthin has been shown to modulate immune response, inhibit cancer cell growth, reduce gastric inflammation, and protect against oxidative stress. Dietary omega-3 fatty acids have a variety of anti-inflammatory and immune-modulating effects as well, and the particular fatty acids that appear to be most potent are the long-chain polyunsaturates derived from marine oils, namely eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
