Topic: Daiwa "Superba" the innovative next generation of Krill Oil.
Guest: Nils Hoem - Chief scientist at AKER Bio Marine.
Krill oil provides a natural source of essential omega-3 fatty acids in the form of EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) as well as phospholipids, choline and astaxanthin. EPA, DHA and choline in krill oil are attached to phospholipids which enhance transport of these substances in tissues where they exert their effect. Omega-3 fatty acids in krill oil are therefore much more easily absorbed in the different organs compared to fatty acids in fish oil which are attached to triglycerides instead of phospholipids. Krill oil also has astaxanthin, a highly powerful antioxidant that is not found in fish oil. Omega-3 fatty acids and choline have been linked to improvement in cardiovascular, cognitive, skin and joint health. Krill oil is obtained from sustainable fishing methods in waters with very little pollutants. An innovative extraction process is used to preserve the pristine lipids in the oil.
Krill oil supplements are available through Daiwa Health Development. Daiwa Krill Oil and Daiwa Super Krill Oil are both helpful in maintaining healthy cholesterol levels already in the normal range. Both products have better bioavailability and have no fishy aftertaste compared to fish oil.
