Superba™ Krill is extracted exclusively from Euphausia superba, an Antarctic krill species rich in the omega-3 fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). A species of zooplankton invertebrates, krill float in huge swarms in Antarctic waters and feed on microscopic algae. Importantly, they represent an essential component of the Antarctic food chain, serving as a food source for a variety of Antarctic marine life, including whales, seals, and penguins.
The algae that provide krill’s diet with such a robust source of omega-3s is also the source of the antioxidant astaxanthin, giving Superba™ its distinctive red color and, more importantly, acting as a natural preservative.
Superba™ Krill omega-3s are best recognized by the body because they are attached to phospholipids, allowing better assimilation into the cells. Powered by these phospholipids, Superba™ Krill ensures the delivery of key fatty acids to various parts of the human body, such as the brain, heart and joints.
