Did you know that 98% of people worldwide are deficient in Omega-3?
According to Harvard, this deficiency is the sixth biggest killer of Americans.
That makes it more deadly than excess trans fat intake, widely recognised as one of the biggest reasons for obesity, heart attacks and death.
Omega-3 deficiency is the reason of multiple health concerns including:
That’s why we worked hard to find a source that works to fill your Omega-3 needs but that also gives you overall protection in other areas and keeps you healthier, all year long.
Derived from Krill – a shrimp like crustacean found in colder waters of the ocean.
Krill oil is rich in Omega-3 fatty acid that provides the missing nutrients required by your cells to perform important functions.
It’s also more effective than fish oil because of phospholipid that makes it highly absorbable. This means it can still be effective despite having lower quantities of Omega-3 in it.
We harvest the Krill oil from the very best locations and far from pollution in the pristine seas surrounding Antarctica.
One of the most researched nutrients, Omega-3s are healthy fats required by your body and brain to work efficiently.
Your body can’t produce these fats on its own, so you have to get them from your diet.
This natural antioxidant gives krill oil its red color, but also protects the oil for oxidation, eliminating the need to add preservatives.
Astaxathine also helps in breaking down all the free radicals present in the body.
Choline is an important nutrient needed by the body to make neurotransmitters, an important part of our nervous system.
The neurotransmitters are used for many body functions such as nerve signalling, liver and muscle function.
Only a small amount of choline can be made in our bodies, so we need to obtain this nutrient from our diet.
Phospholipids are like an effective delivery system… They make Omega-3s, Choline and Astaxathoine highly absorbable and help them to integrate into the blood cell membranes, leading to a higher level of Omega 3s when compared with triglyceride omega-3 sources.
With 60% of DHA present in the brain tissue, there’s no doubt how effective Krill Oil is for the brain.
DHA acts as a building block and brain cell lubricants to make the brain more efficient and flexible.
Krill oil contains a very powerful form of antioxidant called Astaxanthine. This is what gives Krill oil its dark red color.
It protects your cells, proteins and DNA from free radicals that form when your body oxidizes the air that you breathe, breaks down the food that you eat or comes in contact with smoke or radiation.
Research shows that EPA present in Krill oil enhances the mood by reducing inflammatory processes in the brain.
DHA also increases the dopamine and serotonin (also called happy hormones) which improve the mood and help alleviate depression.
Krill oil is very effective against Inflammation.
It helps improve the cellular function by reducing the production of inflammation-causing molecules.
In a clinical trial it was found that it works wonders against several inflammatory and autoimmune diseases such as Crohn’s disease, migraine headaches, rheumatoid arthritis, and even multiple sclerosis.
Krill oil improves the absorption of calcium in the bones.
It lubricates the joints, reducing the pain and stiffness and keeps them healthy and flexible.
It also enhances bone and joint support in people with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Krill oil increases the protein IL-2 which is responsible for your overall immune system strength and helps minimize cell damage from exercise as well.
It has also been found that Krill oil increases the activity of the immune cells, called Natural Killer cells, which help protect the body against viral infections.
They are the first line of defence of our immunity system and quickly react to threats such as bacteria or viruses and keep them under control until the slower antigen-specific immune system responds.
Krill is a highly renewable source of omega-3.
Krill represents the largest biomass in the ocean and they reproduce very quickly.
This ensures that the wildlife that depend on krill to survive, such as whales and penguins, still have enough food source to live their life comfortably without having to compete with each other.
Optimal Health Bridge’s Antarctic Krill oil is of a very high quality.
Choosing high quality Krill is one obvious reason, but that’s not the only thing that marks it out above other products.
Other best selling Krill oil supplements have lower levels of Omega-3s, Phospholipids, and Astaxanthins when compared to our OHB Antarctic Krill oil.
Our Krill oil is also harvested very carefully and selectively and the higher quantity of every nutrient is a testament to that.
There is a reason why Krill oil is a doctor’s favourite.
The nutrients inside it are all backed by lots of research, countless scientific papers, and controlled clinical trials.
It’s not only beneficial for your heart but your mind, eyes, mood, gut, and many other things.
Omega-3s work as anti-inflammatories so keeping your omega-3 levels high generally help with a host of other conditions. Omega-3s have been shown to help:
Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid, which means your body cannot produce it naturally. As well as getting it from supplements, there are various foods that have high levels of omega-3 in them.
EPA stands for Eicosapentaenoic Acid and DHA stands for Docosahexaenoic Acid. Which ratio is best varies slightly depending on the research. True Omega 3 is at a 4:3 ratio of EPA to DHA.
Several foods have omega-3s in them. Fish is well known as a major source of omega-3, but you can also find it in various nuts and seeds as well as eggs from grass-fed chickens and also grass fed beef, although this is in smaller quantities.
Omega-3s and omega-6s are both essential fatty acids, but whilst omega-3s work as an anti-inflammatory, omega-6s do the opposite. Instead of one being good and the other bad, it’s more that there needs to be a balance between the two and for most people, they have far more omega-6s in their diet than they should.
Signs of an omega-3 deficiency can be subtle, but research suggests that it can lead to dermatitis as well as rough scaly skin. There have also been links made between an omega-3 deficiency and age-related cognitive decline.

There aren’t really side effects as such when it comes to taking omega-3s. Any adverse effects are usually mild and can only really stretch as far as unpleasant tastes and the occasional loose bowel when you start introducing supplements to your diet.

Fish oil is an excellent way to get omega-3s into your diet. It can be an excellent way of getting a large amount of omega-3s without having to eat more fish, which can be especially beneficial to those with certain types of fish allergy.
As with a lot of these supplements, it’s not always an either-or situation. The answer is going to vary from person to person and you might find that a mixture of all three is beneficial. Krill oil for example has some benefits not found in fish oil whilst fish oil can give you massive boost of omega-3s. Flaxseed might have comparatively smaller amounts of omega-3, but it’s easy to include in a wide range of foods.
Fish oil does act as a blood thinner. As it’s packed with omega-3s, these act as an anti-inflammatory, thus thinning the blood. This is usually a great thing, but you do need to let a doctor know about your omega-3 supplements if you are about to have surgery as that can complicate things if a surgeon isn’t expecting it.
Krill oil is a great of way getting your omega-3 levels up, but it also includes an antioxidant called astaxathine and is phospholipid based which allows the omega-3s to be absorbed faster and more efficiently.
The answer to this will depend on your own circumstances and really, the question isn’t quite right.
