The Euphausia Superba species is rich in essential Omega-3 fatty acids, Eicosapentaenoic acid and Docosahexaenoic acid (EPA and DHA).
The main difference between krill oil and fish oil is that krill oil contains an antioxidant known as "astaxanthin", which gives it a red colour instead of the usual yellow colour of fish oils. Astaxanthin also helps protect the omega 3 fatty acids from oxidation, so no additives are necessary to maintain its freshness.
Another benefit of krill oils is that the chemical structure of the fatty acids are more easily absorbed compared to fish oils and that it does not leave a "fishy" aftertaste.
Antarctic krill live in a naturally unpolluted environment, so it is free from toxins, heavy metals and other environmental contaminations.
