About Krill Oil

Krill are shrimp-like crustaceans that live in large schools. Although they are small, krill form a large part of the base of the aquatic food chain, providing important nutrients to fish, squid, penguins, and whales. Euphausia superba is the species of krill found in Antarctic waters and is a rich source of phospholipid-bound omega-3 fatty acids.

The omega-3 fatty acids in krill oil are absorbed and carried to the body’s cells in phospholipid form. Because phospholipids serve as the structural basis of cell membranes, omega-3 fatty acids in phospholipid form are easily recognized, absorbed, and utilized by the body. Krill oil is more sustainable and 2.5 times more bioavailable than fish oil. Because it requires a lower dosage than fish oil and contains naturally-occurring astaxantin, krill oil is also a much better value than fish oil.

Yearly fishing quotas for krill are established by the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR). The total biomass of this species ranges from 420 million to 700 million metric tons. In recent years, a 2.07% quota has been authorized, but usually less than 1.50% of the total krill biomass is harvested annually.

Neptune Biosciences has earned Friend of the Sea© certification for sustainable krill harvesting standards. Friend of the Sea© is an international organization that audits fishing vessels and ensures that international guidelines are respected.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is krill oil?
Krill oil is a sustainable, marine source of highly bioavailable omega-3 fatty acids. Krill oil is rich in omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA) that are naturally bound to phospholipids, thereby providing enhanced bioavailability. Krill oil is also rich in astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant, that works synergistically with the phospholipid-bound omega-3 fatty acids to support cardiovascular, cognitive, joint, eye and skin health.

Are krill an endangered species?
Krill are not an endangered species. Even though whales feed almost exclusively on krill, only 0.03% of the total biomass is harvested each year. The CCAMLR (Commission of Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources) annually regulates and establishes catch limits to ensure that krill remain an un-endangered species.

What are the active ingredients in Krill Oil Gold®?
The active ingredients in Krill Oil Gold® are phospholipids, phospholipid-bound omega-3 fatty acids, astaxanthin, and small amounts of choline.

Does Krill Oil Gold® contain anything other than the active ingredient?
Krill Oil Gold® does not contain anything other than the active ingredient.

How does krill oil compare to fish oil?
Although krill oil and fish oil both provide omega-3 fatty acids, there are some important differences in the two sources with regard to composition and bio-availability. Krill oil contains omega-3 fatty acids that are bound to phospholipids, which are the structural basis of human cell membranes. For this reason, the omega-3 fatty acids in krill oil are thought to be more bioavailable than traditional fish oil. In addition, krill oil contains a powerful antioxidant, astaxanthin, which works synergistically with the omega-3 fatty acids to deliver therapeutic benefits at a lower dosage.

What is the recommended daily dosage of Krill Oil Gold®?
For cardiovascular health, we recommend a daily dose of 1,000 to 1,500 mg per day of Krill Oil Gold® for 3 months, followed by a maintenance dose of 500 mg thereafter. For joint health, we recommend a daily dose of 500 mg per day. For women’s health, we recommend a daily dose of 500 mg per day OR 2 g per day of Krill Oil Gold® 8 days prior to a menstrual cycle and 2 days during. For cognitive health, we recommend a daily dose of 500 mg per day of Krill Oil Gold®. For general health, we recommend a daily dose of 500 mg per day of Krill Oil Gold®.
