What is krill oil dietary supplement?
Krill (Euphausia superba), a distant relative of shrimp, is a small crustacean that is fished from the cold waters of the Antarctic Ocean. Thanks to its very short lifespan at the top of the food chain, krill is virtually free of the toxins, heavy metals, oil and pesticides which otherwise accumulate in fish. Krill oil is the purest oil on our planet – which is why there’s such great interest in it!

How do AZ Vitamins Krill Oil Capsules work as a dietary supplement?
The benefits of this oil go beyond its extraordinary purity. Krill oil has been prized for decades for its high levels of Omega-3 (EPA and DHA) and its heart-strengthening and protective properties. It also provides Omega-3 fatty acids in the form of phospholipids, which are best absorbed by the body.
Phospholipids are present in our diet only in small amounts but are major constituents of the membrane of every cell. They act as a barrier, giving the cell its permeability, ductility and resistance to deformation. Certain phospholipids are indispensable for the formation of acetylcholine, a molecule that ensures the transmission of information between neurons. Consuming them thus improves memory, attention and concentration. Phospholipids are natural emulsifiers that lower you “bad” cholesterol and triglycerides while boosting “good” cholesterol. They counteract the formation of arterial plaque and especially fatty deposits in the liver.
