WHAT IS KRILL?
Krill are small, shrimp-like crustaceans found mostly in the Antarctic and Northern Pacific Oceans. Though tiny in size, Krill make up the largest animal biomass on the planet. They feed mostly on phytoplankton and, being near the bottom of the food chain, are eaten by fish, penguins, seals, squid and whales.
Like fish oil, Krill Oil contains Omega 3 fatty acids (EPA/DHA), but unlike fish oil where the fatty acids are found in the triglyceride form, in Krill Oil they are bound in a phospholipid structure. This form of structure is the same as the fats in our own cell walls.
HOW IS KRILL OIL DIFFERENT FROM FISH OIL?
The phospholipid structure of the Omega 3’s found in Krill oil makes them more absorbable than the triglyceride form found in fish, and allows easier entrance into the cells of the body. In essence this means a rapid absorption rate in the body. Also, Krill Oil does not “repeat” (burping fish taste) on people, the way some fish oils can.
Krill Oil naturally contains Vitamins A, D and E and, unlike fish, also contains Astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant derived from algae that the Krill eat. This algae produces the red pigment Astaxanthin that give Krill, Lobster and Shrimp their reddish color (some is also found in salmon oil).
The presence of this antioxidant makes Krill oil over 40 times more potent than fish oil in terms of ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity) values. Astaxanthin has been shown to protect the skin against UV-induced skin damage. This increased antioxidant capacity also means that Krill Oil is more stable and will have a longer shelf life than fish oil. Astaxanthin, unlike most antioxidants, has the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier, where it has the potential to protect the brain, eye and central nervous system from free-radical damage.
Fish oils that are “pharmaceutical grade” have had the solvent hexane used in the process whereas Krill Oil is extraction with food grade ethanol as a solvent.
BENEFITS OF KRILL
Clinical studies have shown Krill oil to have many proven benefits to human health. The nice thing about these studies is that instead of placebo they used standard fish oil, so these benefits actually show the advantages of Krill over fish oil.
• Reduces LDL (“bad”) cholesterol and raises HDL (“good”) cholesterol
• Lowers C-reactive protein levels
• Lowers blood sugar levels
• Reduces pain and inflammation caused by Arthritis
• Reduced symptoms of PMS and Dysmenorrhea (extremely painful periods).
• Effective in treatment of adult ADHD
For NutriStart to consider marketing Krill Oil we had to be convinced that it was harvested in a sustainable manner. The Superba tm Krill Oil that we use is produced by the Norwegian firm Aker BioMarine. Aker BioMarine tracks Krill from catch to sale, a concept called traceability. They have 100% traceability throughout the entire supply chain and can even be traced back to the exact GPS coordinates where the Krill was harvested. Aker’s proprietary harvesting technique eliminates by-catch by releasing them back into the waters unharmed. Third-party onboard observers have reported zero by-catch.
Aker is the only Krill Oil supplier to manage their own fishery. Full vertical integration allows for Aker to control quality throughout the supply chain and appropriately allocate the richest raw material to oil production. When you see the Superba™ logo on Krill products, you know that you are receiving a sustainably-harvested product. Aker actively collaborates with CCAMLR (www.ccamir.org) and WWF Norway (www.wwf.org) to observe and protect the resources of the Southern Ocean, promote sustainable harvesting, promote traceability of fishery products, promote eco-friendly harvesting, and combat illegal fishing. Aker welcomes third-party scientific observers onboard their boats to utilize their onboard laboratory as a base for scientific research and observation of the ecosystem.
Superba ™ Krill Oil has received certification from the Marine Stewardship Council (www.msc.org), and independent, global, non-profit organization that works to promote the best choices in sustainable seafood. The position of the MSC on current harvest of Krill is as follows:
“Harvest of Antarctic krill (Euphausia superba ) is very low – less than 1 per cent of the most recent estimated biomass. The management authority for the fishery is the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR), which was established in part to address concerns that an increase in krill catches in the Southern Ocean could have a serious effect on populations of krill. CCAMLR has adopted a very precautionary approach designed to ensure fishing activities minimize risks to the krill population. Further, for the season 2007/08, the total landings (by all boats operating in the area) were 150,000 tonnes – just four per cent of the total allowable catch set by CCAMLR.”
