About Krill Oil
Euphausia superba is a species of krill found in the Antarctic waters of the Southern Ocean. Krill are shrimp-like invertebrates or crustaceans that live in large schools, called swarms, sometimes reaching densities of 10,000-30,000 individual animals per cubic meter. Krill Oil is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids for the maintenance of good health.
Unlike fish oil, the omega-3 fatty acids in Krill Oil are absorbed and carried to the body’s cells in phospholipid form. Phospholipids form the structural basis of cell membranes, so phospholipids with omega-3 fatty acids are easily recognized, absorbed and utilized by the body. Best of all, there is no fishy after-taste.

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

How long does it take to notice benefits?
As with any nutritional supplement, Krill Oil Gold must be taken for at least 6 to 8 weeks, if not longer, for noticeable benefits.
