In our continuing commitment to provide Answers for Life tailored to your health needs, Twinlab introduces Joint Krill Oil to help you achieve optimal wellness. Twinlab's innovative Krill Essentials™ contain clinically proven amounts of patented NKO™ krill oil containing phospholipids with substantially high amounts of omega-3 EPA and DHA and inherent potent antioxidants – astaxanthin and unique marine-source flavonoids.
Heart health continues to be a leading area of concern in the U.S., affecting both men and women. In fact, an estimated 1.2 million Americans will experience a new or recurring coronary heart attack in 2005. To help support heart health,* Twinlab introduces Cardio Krill Oil a unique formula containing clinically proven NKO™ krill oil:
- Regulates blood lipids already within desired levels.*
- Contains B vitamins: B6, B12, and folic acid that research has shown can help maintain healthy homocysteine levels; a factor in heart health.*
- Helps maintain cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range,* while possibly reducing the risk of Coronary Heart Disease (CHD).*
What are Krill and where to they come from?
Krill are small shrimp-like crustaceans that can be found in all of the world's oceans; however the greatest proportion exists in Antarctic waters. Antarctic krill (also known as Euphausia superba) is so plentiful; in fact, it is thought to be one of the most abundant animal species on the planet. The Antarctic female krill can lay up to 10,000 eggs at a time; sometimes several times a season.
What are the active ingredients in Krill and what benefits do they provide?
Considered a delicacy and source of protein by the Japanese, krill offer various essential nutrients including omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), along with natural antioxidants (vitamin A and E, astaxanthin, and novel marine-source flavonoids).
Scientists have discovered that the Antarctic krill's phospholipids (key protective component of the cell membrane that contains fatty acids) have a higher concentration of omega-3 EPA and DHA than other krill as found in the Pacific. Antarctic krill's high fatty acid profile closely resembles that of the human brain's own phospholipids, therefore it is more easily recognized by the body.
More recent breakthrough scientific evidence indicates that the Antarctic krill oil, as found in Neptune Krill Oil (NKO™), may provide exceptional benefits because of its phospholipids with uniquely high content of omega-3 EPA and DHA and its potent antioxidant activity (48 times higher than fish oils). These benefits include regulating blood lipids (fats and fatlike substances such as cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood) already within desired levels and relieving the symptoms associated with PMS.* Other preliminary research indicates that NKO™ krill oil may be beneficial to joint health – offering support for sore and stiff joints.*
Are all Krill Oils the same?
Twinlab Krill Essentials™ are formulated with specific, clinically-proven amounts of NKO™ krill oil that has been extracted with a patented cold-vacuum process. When other krill oil is exposed to heat or air their natural bonds are destroyed which diminishes its phospholipids and antioxidant value. NKO™ krill oil's proprietary extraction process preserves the krill's essential fats (EPA and DHA) and potent antioxidants (astaxanthin and marine-source flavonoids) in their natural form, thus being more readily available for utilization by the body.
Twinlab Krill Oil formulas are harvested, processed and tested to be free of PCB and heavy metals. And since NKO™ maintains its inherent potent antioxidants which help to sustain maximum stability of the oil from oxidation – you can expect reduced incidence of "fishy repeats" (burp-ups).
