Doctor’s Best Real Krill supports healthy blood lipid levels, promotes joint health and enhances cell membrane structure.* Krill are shrimp-like ocean creatures (crustaceans) that feed on algae, phytoplankton and zooplankton. Doctor’s Best Real Krill is sustainably harvested from Antarctic krill. Krill oil provides the omega-3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, in phospholipids form. Krill oil gets its red color from astaxanthin, a potent membrane antioxidant.
Krill thrive in the frigid Antarctic seas due to their ample content of the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) and EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid). By remaining fluid at temperatures way below freezing, these vital lipid nutrients assist krill to routinely survive, feed and reproduce. Krill’s vital lipids also aid in the maintenance of cell membranes. Membranes are thin, interconnecting molecular sheets that define the cell’s outer border and extend into the cell interior. The membrane’s foundation, or matrix, consists mostly of phospholipids with fatty acids attached. Numerous catalytic proteins are inserted into this matrix, and these must be free to move, which requires the matrix be semi-fluid. The omega-3 phospholipids of krill oil provide a fluidizing effect to the membrane matrix, which aids in cell function.
