Antarctic Krill Oil 

Krill oil is used for the same reasons as cod liver oil, flax oil and other omega 3 fatty acids, but is often favoured because it does not cause fishy burps or an after-taste - a common side effect of fish oil.

The fact that it contains astaxanthin is also unique. The ultimate antioxidant - researchers have found that it may be more powerful than vitamin E, beta-carotene and lutein. It can also enhance the action of other antioxidants, such as vitamin E and C.

Our krill oil is a high-strength formula (500mg), provided in an easy-to-swallow marine gel capsule form. It is sourced exclusively from sustainable fisheries in the Antarctic, through our partners Aker BioMarine™ who work with World Wildlife Foundation Norway to ensure sustainable krill harvesting.


Krill oil comes from krill - tiny shrimp-like creatures that live in very cold ocean waters.

Krill oil contains two types of omega-3 fatty acid: eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).

# Approved EFSA health claims:

Krill oil also contains astaxanthin, as well as phospholipids.

Astaxanthin is a pigment that belongs to a group of chemicals called carotenoids. It occurs naturally in certain algae and causes the pink/red colour of krill.

Phospholipids are a type of large group of organic compounds called “lipids” (naturally-occurring molecules). Phospholipids are a major component of all cell membranes.

Unlike some fish oil capsules, with Antarctic krill oil there is no fishy after-taste!
