What is Vitacost SKO® Superior Krill Oil?
Vitacost SKO® Superior Krill Oil is an omega-3 essential fatty acid supplement featuring 1,000 mg of krill oil. Krill oil, derived from krill (shrimp-like crustaceans), is a good source of two of the most studied omega-3 essential fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
Omega-3 essential fatty acids are essential to the body and must be obtained through diet. Since the typical American diet is generally low in omega-3 essential fatty acids, taking a supplement such as Vitacost SKO® Superior Krill Oil is a convenient way to obtain these important nutrients without increasing fish consumption.
Krill oil is also rich in vitamins A and E and functions as a powerful antioxidant.* Vitacost Superior Krill oil also contains omega-6 fatty acids and astaxanthin, a carotenoid (natural plant pigment) produced by microalgae, that functions as an antioxidant.
