What is Super Strength Krill Oil 1,200mg?

The krill oil in Healthspan formulation has been sourced from the cold and unpolluted waters of the Antarctic. These nutrient rich waters produce krill oil containing particularly high levels of the beneficial omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA which provide support for the heart, brain and eyes.*

The presence of the important compounds astaxanthin and marine phospholipids sets krill oil apart from traditional fish oils. Marine phospholipids act as a natural emulsifier to aid in the digestion of omega 3 fatty acids; for this reason krill oil is thought to be more ‘body-ready’ than traditional fish oils. Beneficial levels of choline are also present in this formulation providing support to the normal function of the liver.**  Furthermore, our krill oil capsules are vanilla flavoured to greatly improve palatability and reduce reflux. 

Healthspan’s Krill Oil is sourced exclusively from our partner Aker Biomarine. Their fishery is a certified krill oil fishery under the Marine Stewardship Council’s (MSC) standard for well-managed and sustainable fisheries. By working closely together with MSC, CCAMLR† and the Norwegian World Wildlife Fund (WWF), Aker Biomarine is committed to promote the sustainable management of marine resources and minimise the impact on the environment.

Each 1,200mg capsule provides 23% total omega 3 fatty acids, including 149mg EPA and 77mg DHA, as well as particularly high levels of astaxanthin, marine phospholipids and choline.

The UK’s Food Standards Agency recommends a minimum of two portions of fish per week – this equals 450mg per day of long chain omega 3 fatty acids, which is why we recommend one to two capsules daily.

*The beneficial effect for brain and eyes is obtained with a daily intake of 250mg of DHA. The beneficial effect for heart is obtained with a daily intake of 250mg of EPA and DHA.

**The beneficial effect is obtained with at least 82.5mg of choline per day.

Additional Information

Contains shellfish.
If you are taking any prescribed medication or have any medical conditions always consult your doctor or pharmacist before taking vitamins or supplements.
Keep out of sight and reach of young children. Do not exceed stated recommended intake.
Food supplements must not be used as a substitute for a varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle.

In light of recent changes to our fish oils, our capsule shells have switched from marine-source gelatin to Halal certified animal-source gelatin. Animal-source gelatin is more durable than marine-source gelatin, therefore reducing the risk of your capsules leaking and making them easier to remove from the blister pack. For information on how this change may affect any special dietary requirements you may have, please contact our call centre on 0800 73 123 77 where one of our highly-trained product advisors will be happy to help.
