Antarctic Krill are tiny shrimp like crustaceans that live in our cool deep oceans. They are the most abundant living organism on the planet and provide a source of EPA and DHA in the form of Phospholipids, rather than the Triglyceride Omega 3 found in fish oils. Our cell membranes are made up predominantly of phospholipids so the EPA and DHA is easily assimilated by the body. Fish oils need to be processed by the body before they can be assimilated and so are not as efficiently absorbed. Studies have shown that less EPA and DHA from Cleanmarine Krill Oil is required to achieve similar health benefits as an equivalent amount of EPA and DHA from fish oils.

Krill also contain a powerful natural anti-oxidant - Astaxanthin - which gives them their reddish colour. Astaxanthin helps keep the oil fresh and pure and provides you with an anti-oxidant boost. Fish oils do not contain Astaxanthin and an anti-oxidant often has to be added during the production process.Sustainability and Ethical fishingCleanmarine uses Krill Oil that has been certified to the Marine Stewardship Councils standard for sustainabilty - the first Omega 3 Oil to have such an accreditation in Europe. The fishing vessel has a full time observer from the WWF onboard to ensure there is no "side" catch and that strictly controlled quotas are adhered too. Only 0.0375% of all krill are fished each year, well below the precautionary level of 1%. There is no danger of over-fishing with such a tightly controlled environment.PurityCleanmarine Krill are harvested from deep in the antarctic ocean. They have exceptional purity for 3 key reasons:
