Krill oil provides a unique way to receive the benefits of omega-3 fats, EPA and DHA, while also simultaneously obtaining healthy phospholipids with powerful antioxidants. Krill are tiny crustaceans found in the sea and make up the world's largest animal biomass. The oil extracted from krill is rich in the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA bound to highly unsaturated phospholipids, closely resembling human brain phospholipids. These phospholipids - phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylinositol, and phosphatidylethanolamine – are essential to life and are a major component of cell membranes, functioning as cell messengers and as wonderful carriers of EPA and DHA, providing a fast and effective delivery of these omega-3s in the body.
XanthOmega™ Krill Oil has a high phospholipid content, standardized to a minimum of 40% phospholipids, mostly as phosphatidylcholine. This updated version is considered to be a virgin krill oil, the purest form available, with higher phospholipid bioavailability, enhancing the absorption of one of krill’s shining features, the powerful antioxidant astaxanthin.
It would take 8 conventional krill softgels to equal the astaxanthin levels in just 1 XanthOmega™ Krill Oil softgel!
Astaxanthin, the carotenoid from the microalgae, haematococcus pluvialis, is a staple of krill’s diet and gives them and other crustaceans their vibrant pink color. As research continues to emerge on the many health benefits of high dose astaxanthin, Designs for Health was compelled to fortify XanthOmega™ Krill Oil with 12 mg per serving AstaREAL®, a registered brand of astaxanthin, even though krill oil naturally contains asaxanthin along with other antioxidants. AstaREAL® is extracted directly from microalgae using a solvent-free technology that ensures maximum control and purity. AstaREAL® astaxanthin is the most studied astaxanthin in the world with over 40 clinical studies, both animal and human.
Studies suggest that this exceptionally high level of astaxanthin offers an array of therapeutic benefits, which may include:
Powerful and efficient antioxidant – due to its unique structure, astaxanthin is able to trap radicals both, at the phospholipid membrane surface as well as inside the membrane
Cardiovascular health – in mild hyperlipidemia, 12 and 18 mg/day doses significantly reduced triglyceride, while 6 and 12 mg doses significantly increased HDL-cholesterol
Protection against Hypertension and Stroke , inducing vasorelaxation through a nitric oxide-related mechanism
Neuroprotective Benefits , through its potent antioxidant activity
Sports Performance - reducing exercise-induced damage in skeletal muscle and heart
Eye Support – Reducing and preventing eye strain, at 6 mg/day
Supporting Skin Health - protecting against UVA-induced aging, as in skin sagging and wrinkles
Anti-Inflammatory Benefits – helps to inhibit the formation of pro-inflammatory mediators nitric oxide (NO), prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), and tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha production
Gastric Health Support – in the treatment of H. pylori, helping to reduce bacterial load, gastric inflammation, and reflux symptoms
XanthOmega™ Krill Oil May Help Support:
Delayed Speech Development

You guys rock! Been ordering supplements for years. It is good to finally talk with people who care as much as I do about shipping times, loyalty rewards, and the products themselves.
