What is Neptune Krill Oil (NKO ™)
Using the patented process (US Patent No.: 6,800,299 B1), Neptune Krill Oil is extracted from the zooplankton crustacean found in the Antarctic Ocean. The rapidly repopulating krill assures a plentiful, sustainable harvest of nature's finest omega-3 oils.
Twinlab's Cardio Krill Oil is harvested, processed and tested to be free of PCB and toxic metals. Also, due to the fact that the omega-3 in NKO ™ has superior antioxidant activity, there will be no fishy repeats (burp-ups).
Why Twinlab Cardio Krill Oil?
Efficacy -Contains a unique and substantial offering of EPA (75 mg) and DHA (45 mg), the two most commonly deficient polyunsaturated fatty acids in the typical diet, thus being more efficacious and of higher value. The NKO ™ fatty acid profile resembles that of a human brain?s own phospholipids, making it easier to be recognized by the body.
Uniqueness -Consists of unique marine flavonoids which are not found in other non-plant sources. These natural marine flavonoids facilitate bioactivity of antioxidants in the product.
Superiority -Possesses proven, superior antioxidants such as vitamin A, E, esterified astaxanthin, and marine flavonoids. Laboratory testing shows that the antioxidant activity in NKO ™ is 48 times greater than fish oils tested. NKO ™ had an antioxidant activity (ORAC lipoFL) of 378 compared to tested fish oils, which only had 8. ORAC is a bio-analytical test that evaluates antioxidant activity against harmful radicals.
Twinlab's Cardio Krill Oil contains the revolutionary, 100% pure, patented Neptune Krill Oil (NKO ™) with unique phospholipids not available in fish oils. NKO ™ phospholipids contain substantially high quantities of EPA (75 mg) and DHA (45 mg). Unlike other sources of omega-3, this fatty acid profile aids recognition by the body based on its resemblance to the human brain's own phospholipids. Research shows that NKO ™ regulates blood lipids already within desired levels.***
In addition to this cutting edge omega-3 ingredient, Twinlab's Cardio Krill is unique because it contains vitamins B6, B12 and folic acid to help support a healthy heart.*** Studies have shown that B-vitamins can help maintain healthy homocysteine levels,*** a protein which can build up in the blood. Cardio Krill Oil helps maintain cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range,*** while it may also reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.**
**Consumption of omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. FDA evalutated the data and determined that, although there is scientific evidence supporting the clain, the evidence is not conclusive.
