Product Info - Krill Oil Supplement
Krill Oil Supplement
Our Krill Oil supplement is a unique source of astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant, that also provides all the vital fats, like O3s as well as O6s. Since the EPA and DHA in krill oil are in phospholipid form, not triglycerides as in most other fat sources including fish oil, they are highly bioavailable. Astaxanthin present in the krill oil is one of the most potent antioxidants that are needed to eliminate free radicals harmful to your pets. Fish oil used in the blend is sustainably sourced (MSC Certified) and provides additional O3s, such as EPA and DHA. Additionally, mixed tocopherols is included for extra protection from oxidation. Salmon oil and cod liver included not only to provide EPA/DHA, but also vitamins A and D in natural states. All ingredients complement each other to deliver a unique product your pet loves.
- Astaxanthin as the powerful antioxidant
- Omega 3 EPA and DHA as phospholipids from krill oil

What it is for?

Vitamins A and D naturally
A must for home cooked pet foods
A great complement to your dog kibble for making it more nutritious and healthy
A highly beneficial antioxidant and omega 3 supplement to any type of dog or cat food or treats. Just pump a little as per the directions.
It is packaged such that no oxygen (air) gets into the container minimizing the oxidation. This is critical given the vulnerability of O-3 fats. Oxidation of fats results in the formation of free radicals that damage the cells and causes premature aging, while also contributing to many different chronic diseases, such as cancer, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, etc. Other companies may sometimes package it in glass containers but opening and closing the container after every use exposes it to air and oxidation. Some others may have tubing to pump but that also can let the air in. No such issues with the way our krill oil supplement is packaged.
What and Why of Astaxanthin
Astaxanthin (ASTX) is a xanthophyll carotenoid abundant in marine animals such as krill, crab, and crustaceans that live on ASTX-containing planktons and microalgae. One of the most potent antioxidant, it is the primary compound that gives krill oil its deep red color. Research has shown it to have tremendous health benefits for the prevention of inflammatory diseases, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, which are the major obesity-related health problems in the developed countries.

What's in Our Krill Oil Supplement
The major ingredient in our supplement is Krill oil, which is complemented by also including a blend of fish oil from anchovy, sardine, herring and mackerel harvested from the pristine waters of Atlantic ocean as well as Alaskan salmon oil as well as cod liver oil. Additionally, it is supplemented with natural astaxanthin oil to boost the antioxidant capacity of the product. To minimize any oxidation of such vital fats and some of that in phospholipid form, we have added some mixed tocopherols, another natural antioxidant.
