Product Information

Krill Oil is a unique source of omega-3 essential fatty acids extracted from Antarctic krill. A zooplankton crustacean, krill is rich in the omega-3 oils EPA and DHA, as well as phospholipids, flavonoids, and the carotene astaxanthin. The EPA and DHA in krill oil are incorporated into important phospholipid molecules closely resembling that of brain phospholipids. This makes krill oil highly absorbable and bioavailable, as these essential fatty acids do not have to be converted in the body into cell membrane-ready phospholipids.*

A study comparing the beneficial effects of krill oil to regular fish oil on premenstrual discomfort found krill oil to be superior.*

Thorne Research's Krill Oil is an exceptionally pure product – with no measurable mercury, lead, cadmium, or PCBs. Krill Oil is also a highly stable product without the use of preservatives. Its high bioavailability allows lower dosages (typically 1 to 2 gelcaps twice daily).* Krill Oil causes no GI upset or "fish oil burping." Krill is harvested in Antarctica in compliance with the landmark Antarctic Treaty System, which strictly regulates the annual krill harvest to protect sea animals that depend on krill for food.

Omega-3s, DHA and EPA: Vital Lipids for the Brain Webinar

Parris Kidd, PhD, presents a lively, in-depth discussion of the effects of omega-3 fatty acids and phospholipids on brain function, including mood, cognition, and behavior. The omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA are a key to normal inflammatory processes and are essential components of phospholipids in neuronal cell membranes. Dr. Kidd discusses the clinical importance of EPA and DHA, as well as the various supplemental sources and doses of these vital lipids.
