Krill oil is a source of powerfull antioxidant Astaxanthin

Astaxanthin is the antioxidant carotenoid that gives krill oil its deep red color.

Astaxanthin is a very potent antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties and the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier. It can neutralize free radicals, which are unstable molecules that can damage cells and increase the risk for age-related diseases, cancer, and heart disease. Astaxanthin has been associated with protecting lipids and low-density lipoproteins (LDL) from oxidation. Furthermore, research suggests that it might be beneficial for cardiovascular health because it increases the “good” HDL-cholesterol and lowers triglyceride levels in both animals and humans.

Astaxanthin is a carotenoid with potent antioxidant properties

Antioxidants enter your blood and scavenge for DNA-damaging free radicals. Free radicals are formed when a molecule in your cells loses an electron. This can be triggered by the presence of environmental factors such as pollution, radiation, herbicides or smoking (among many other agents). Free-radical activity can even be triggered by consumption of excessive calories, such as those found in simple sugars.

Free radicals are unstable and they try to steal their needed electron from another compound – a method used to gain stability. The compound from which the electron is stolen sometimes becomes another free radical, which can begin a chain reaction that will damage living cells, something that accumulates with age.

Astaxanthin helps keep omega-3 EPA and DHA fatty acids naturally fresh and stable

Scientific studies have shown that omega-3 fatty acids linked to the phospholipids are far less prone to oxi-dations than omega-3 fatty acids in traditional tri-glyceride form. The powerful antioxidant astaxanthin will give an additional protection to the omega-3 fatty acids and prolong product shelf life.

Recognized for its health-promoting suppression of free radicals, astaxanthin keeps Krillan™ fresh, protecting the omega-3 fa y acids from oxidation, which means no additives are necessary to maintain its long-term stability. staxanthin inhibits fatty acid oxidation and thereby secures a stable oil product within the capsule.

By comparison, antioxidants are added to most dietary-supplement fish oils to prevent them from going rancid during production or on the shelf.
