Superba™ Krill is sourced from the pristine waters of the Southern Ocean in Antarctica. Being on the bottom of the food chain, krill are virtually free of contaminants. They also contain Astaxanthin, which preserves their omega-3 fatty acid content. Compared to other sources, krill is one of the most underexploited marine sources of omega-3s on EARTH.
Superba™ Krill Sourcing
SuperbaTM Krill is sourced from Antarctic krill, which live in the pristine waters of the Southern Ocean in Antarctica.
Free of Environmental Contaminants
Because krill live at the bottom of the food chain, they are virtually free of contaminants.
Krill Contains Astaxanthin
The astaxanthin found in krill helps naturally preserve its omega-3 fatty acid content.
The Krill Biomass
Krill represent the largest biomass on Earth, at nearly twice the weight of the entire human population. On average, less than 1/3 of 1% is harvested annually.
Krill can survive for long periods of time without food and can live as long as 10 years. They also travel in swarms primarily as a defense mechanism to confuse predators that would pick out single krill. These swarms sometimes reach densities that turn the surface of the ocean pinkish-red.
Krill represent the cornerstone of the entire Antarctic food chain—with a biomass of around 500 million tons. Currently, the annual catch of 200,000 tons per year from all krill fisheries is far below this margin. Coming from the most abundant biomass on earth, Superba Krill will be meeting consumers’ health needs for years to come.
