MegaRed® contains oil from 100% pure Antarctic krill, tiny crustaceans that thrive in the frigid waters of the Antarctic. MegaRed® provides an optimal combination of omega-3 fatty acids, phospholipids and powerful antioxidants including astaxanthin to support heart and joint health. Quality tested for purity.
MegaRed® Omega-3 Krill Oil contains omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA. Research as shown that DHA and EPA may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Unlike fish oil, the omega-3 fatty acids in MegaRed®, Omega-3 Krill Oil are absorbed and carried to the body's cells in phospholipid form.
Phospholipids form the structural basis of cell membranes, so MegaRed® phospholipids with omega-3 fatty acids are easily recognized, incorporated and utilized by the body.
Importantly, because MegaRed® omega-3's are carried in phospholipid form, there is no fishy aftertaste.
MegaRed® has been shown to significantly increase your Omega-3 Index in just 30 days. The Omega-3 Index is a measure of the amount of omega-3 fatty acids in your body's cells. A higher Omega-3 Index is associated with better cardiovascular health and other benefits.
Eco-Friendly. Krill is one of earth's most abundant and sustainable organisms. The harvest of krill is well below conservative international catch guidelines.
Schiff® MegaRed® goes a step further by only sourcing krill from the Antarctic where krill is most abundant. This helps the ecosystem maintain a healthy, sustainable krill population.
