Krill Oil

Why Take Complementary Prescriptions Krill Oil?

Complementary Prescriptions Krill Oil contains Essential Fatty Acids (EFAs), which include both omega-3 fats and omega-6 fats that can't be made in your body, but are essential to normal health and metabolism.  Most people consume too much omega-6 fats, creating an imbalance.  The average omega-6 to omega-3 ration is presently closer to 20:1 or even higher.  An optimal ratio is closer to 4:1 and evidence suggests that our ancestors ate a diet that gave them closer to a 1:1 ratio.  Research suggests that our brains are losing mass at an alarming rate due to the lack of omega-3 fatty acids in our diet!

Complementary Prescriptions Krill oil is a great source of omega-3' in the form of phospholipids, liposomes that carry the fatty acids right in to your body's cells.  Studies have shown that these liposomes are the most efective carriers of EPA and DHA.  

Standard fish oils lack this phospholipid complex and instead contain omega-3 fatty acids in the form of free trigycerides.  Phospholipids are the building blocks for healthy cell membranes, protecting them from free radical attacks and allowing transport of molecules in and out of the cells. Krill oil is:
  • significantly more bioavailable than fish oil
  • improves omega-3 to omega-6 ratio
