What is Krill Oil 500mg?

Healthspan’s krill oil possesses unrivalled purity and contains high levels of the beneficial omega 3 fatty acids DHA and EPA which provide support for the brain, heart and normal vision. Each 500mg capsule contains 115mg total omega 3 fatty acids (32mg DHA and 62mg EPA) as well as 50mcg of astaxanthin and 205mg of marine phospholipids.

It is the presence of astaxanthin that sets krill oil apart from traditional fish oils. Astaxanthin is thought to be 300 times more powerful than the vitamins A & E. Krill oil also provides high levels of substances collectively known as marine phospholipids, which are a fundamental component of human cell membranes.

Healthspan’s Krill Oil is sourced exclusively from our partners Aker BioMarine. Their fishery has been independently certified to the Marine Stewardship Council’s (MSC) standard for a well-managed and sustainable fishery. Aker BioMarine is the only krill fishery certified as sustainable by the MSC and is fully aware of its responsibilities to the long term future of the krill population.

Aker BioMarine draws on 30 years of fishing experience and relationships with established experts, from WWF-Norway to the MSC to CCAMLR** to ensure that fishing is sustainable and there is 100-percent traceability from the Antarctic seas to the end user.
