Krill Oil-EVERYONES TALKING ABOUT IT! SO WHAT IS IT?
They are small prawn like creatures that are food source to the world’s largest animals-whales.
The toothless whales swallow huge quantities of krill to provide them with the energy they need. Some seals, penguins, sea birds, fish and squid also depend on krill for their energy source.
Krill congregate in dense swarms or masses that can turn the oceans surface red or pink. Together with plankton, krill make up the largest biomass on earth, making them one of the most easily renewable food sources available and also an excellent nutritional source.
Krill are not a new source of nutrition, as they have been harvested as a food source and considered a delicacy by the Japanese. Krill increases intake of omega-3 fatty acids. This is so important because antioxidants are the body’s number one way to neutralize free radicals, which are harmful metabolic by-products that are damaging to tissues and cells throughout the whole body.
