I'm guilty of having a horrible diet at times. As much as I wish things were different, I just completely dislike vegetables and don't eat fruits or fish as often as I should either. Because of this, I've been taking a wide variety of nutritional supplements for well over a decade. This way, I can try to make up for what my diet is lacking in order to give my body all of the essential vitamins and nutrients it needs.
I've long been a believer in fish oil supplements for they are a great added support for your cardiovascular system and brain functions. I made sure to take plenty of fish oil when I was pregnant and while breastfeeding Riley, and to this day, Riley drinks organic milk loaded with DHA.
So I have to admit that I was fairly surprised to learn of a supplement much more powerful than fish oil...krill oil! Everest Nutrition Krill Oil, found in the deep, pure waters of the Antarctic, is a new generation of Omega-3s that beats the pants off of fish oil. According to independent laboratories, their Krill Oil was found to be 54x more powerful in antioxidant activity than fish oil. Keep reading to learn more!
Krill Oil is the oil harvested from antarctic krill, a shrimp like crustacean that lives deep in the ocean. Scientists and doctors have discovered that ingesting this oil can have amazing affects on your body including a stronger heart, pain-free joints, a better mood, lower cholesterol, easier menstruation and overall better health.
Just look at the health benefits that can be attained by taking Everest Nutrition Krill Oil on a regular basis versus fish oil supplements:
- Reduce your risk of a cardiovascular "event" by up to 45%
- Vanquish artery-clogging LDL "bad" cholesterol by up to 55%
- Reduce harmful triglycerides by up to 27%
- Slash heart-damaging inflammation by as much as 29%
- Raise HDL "good" cholesterol by as much as 43.92%
- Soothe the pain and discomfort of stiff joints by up to 29%
- Boost your memory and mental focus by as much as 48%
- Reduce facial wrinkles by up to 51% (YIPPEE!)
- Increase your energy by over 50%
- Decreases the physical and emotional effects of PMS by up to 47% (YIPPEE! - says my husband)
Everest Nutrition also delivers fresh krill oil in unique Caplique capsules for better digestion. That means no disgusting "fish burps" or fishy aftertaste which usually occurs when taking regular fish oil supplements. Krill Oil is even safe for your child ages 6 and over, as well as pregnant women. Just make sure that you don't have any shellfish allergies before beginning this regimen of supplements.
Everest Nutrition's Krill Oil harvest is regulated by the CCAMLR, an organization dedicated to conserving the oceans ecosystem. They do this by setting precautionary catch limits and only licensing certain companies to do krill harvesting. Because krill are considered to be the largest biomass in the world (if you put all the krill in the world on a scale it would weigh more than all the human beings on earth) there is no chance of them becoming endangered.
Krill Oil also contains critical DHA and EPA but there's one HUGE difference. When you take Krill Oil, the Omega 3 fatty acids are structured in phospholipid form and NOT triglyceride form. Phospholipids are the same type of fat cells found in the human body! This means there are no triglycerides to break down and the Omega 3s can directly enter your body without any additional work or conversion! Just by switching to Krill Oil you immediately gain 50% more DHA and EPA to boost your health!
An amazing nutrient found in Krill Oil is the all-so powerful antioxidant called astaxanthin. It's a carotenoid that gives krill, shrimp and salmon their pink color. Krill Oil contains more antioxidant power than Vitamin A, Lutein, Vitamin E, Lycopene and many more! In fact, astaxanthin is one of the few nutrients that has the rare ability to cross the blood-brain barrier and deliver essential nutrients throughout the body-- astaxanthin also fights off free radicals that lead to cell damage!
Everest Nutrition Krill Oil has an ORAC value of 431 which makes it 54x times more powerful as an antioxidant compared to fish oil and other nutrients!
Let's face it...in head-to-head competition, Krill Oil benefits far surpasses the benefits of ordinary fish oil, so take your dietary supplements to the next level of health with Everest Nutrition Krill Oil!
