How Does It Work?
Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Supports Cardiovascular Health†
MegaRed® contains oil from 100% pure Antarctic krill, tiny crustaceans that thrive in the pristine waters of the Antarctic Ocean. MegaRed® provides an optimal combination of Omega-3 fatty acids DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaeonic acid), essential fatty acids that may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.1
MegaRed® has been shown to significantly increase your Omega-3 Index in just 30 days.2 The Omega-3 Index is a measure of the amount of Omega-3 fatty acids in your body's cells. A higher Omega-3 Index is associated with better cardiovascular health and other health benefits.
Phospholipids: No Fishy Odor or Aftertaste
Because the Omega-3 fatty acids in MegaRed® krill oil are carried to the body's cells in phospholipid form, they are easily recognized, incorporated and utilized by your body. MegaRed® krill oil mixes well in the stomach for efficient digestion. Importantly, because MegaRed® Omega-3's are carried in phospholipid form, there is no fishy aftertaste.
Astaxanthin: Provides Carotenoid and Antioxidant Benefits
Astaxanthin is a naturally-occurring carotenoid and powerful antioxidant. Its unique molecular structure makes it very efficient at neutralizing free radicals throughout the body, supporting overall cardiovascular health.
What Are Omega-3 Fatty Acids?
◦Promotes heart and vascular health†
◦Helps maintain total cholesterol already within the normal range
◦Helps maintain healthy blood pressure levels that are already within the normal range
◦Supports joint health†
◦May benefit cognitive function†
Types of Omega-3
Eicosapentaenoic acid — a long chain Omega-3 fatty acid found in cold water fish, algae and krill. Supports heart health and joint health.
Docosahexaenoic acid — a long chain Omega-3 fatty acid found in cold water fish, algae and krill. Helps support heart health and brain health.
Alpha linolenic acid — a short-chain Omega-3 fatty acid found in nuts and seeds. May help promote cardiovascular health.
•Good Sources of Omega-3
Our bodies can’t make Omega-3 fatty acids so we have to rely on dietary sources. Cold water seafood like salmon, tuna, halibut and krill are among the best sources, but Omega-3 fatty acids can also be found in some plants and nut oils. At least two servings of cold water fish a week are recommended to get adequate amounts of Omega-3.
Compare to Fish Oil
•The Omega-3 fatty acids in MegaRed® krill oil are carried to the body's cells in phospholipid form, and so, there is no fishy odor or aftertaste like there is with fish oil.
And unlike fish oil softgels which can be larger is size, one small, easy-to-swallow MegaRed® Omega-3 Krill Oil softgel per day is all you need.
In an effort to promote sustainable practices, MegaRed® Krill Oil is sourced from the Antarctic Ocean where krill are abundant. The krill are harvested well below international catch guidelines from sources that use eco-harvesting, ensuring that only krill are harvested and not other marine animals. MegaRed®'s source for krill oil has been certified by an independent nonprofit organization that sets voluntary standards for well-managed and sustainable operation of fisheries.
