Monitoring our heart health is important. Krill oil helps support your heart health, which makes your job a whole lot easier.

But – what is krill oil? And how does it work to support heart health?

Krill are tiny shrimp-like crustaceans that whales eat. Their oil contains Omega-3 fatty acids, which can be beneficial to your heart health. There are different types of Omega-3 Fatty Acids, but the two main important ones are EPA and DHA. These fatty acids are found naturally in certain fish, but often times we may not get enough fish in our diet, which is why taking a supplement of krill oil can be beneficial. The oil from the krill is put into small capsules that are used to supplement1    our diet.

Aside from helping support hearth health, krill oil can also help:

  • Support healthy cholesterol and triglyceride levels
  • Support joint health
  • Support brain health

If you’re still asking yourself, “but – what IS krill oil?” – Just know that it’s a healthy supplement, as it is found in one of the cleanest oceans2. Not only do our krill come from the pure Antarctic waters, they’re also sustainable. MegaRed cares about the environment, which means we’re concerned about how we extract krill oil, so we don’t upset the food cycle. MegaRed® Ultra Strength contains astaxanthin, which is an antioxidant naturally found in fish like salmon.
