Optimal Krill Oil, by Seeking Health, provides omega 3 essential fatty acids, 12 mg of Astaxanthin, and phospholipids to support antioxidant function, neurological and cardiovascular health, healthy skin, and much more.*

Omega 3 fatty acids are also an important component to a proper prenatal nutrition program and as a supplement to support children’s health.* Searching for a pure and powerful source of essential fatty acids without the burps? Seeking Health has increased the amount of astaxanthin in Optimal Krill Oil from its original 1.5 mg to an impressive 12 mg per serving. Studies suggest that this exceptionally high level of astaxanthin offers an array of benefits, which may include:

  • Antioxidant support*
  • Cardiovascular support – may promote healthy lipid profiles*
  • Muscle recovery support*
  • Eye support – may relieve eye fatigue and support visual acuity*
  • Skin support*
  • Healthy inflammatory response*
  • Gastric health support*

It would take 8 conventional krill softgels to equal the astaxanthin levels in just 1 capsule of Optimal Krill Oil! What are Krill? Krill are tiny crustaceans found in the sea and make up the world’s largest animal biomass. The oil extracted from krill is rich in the omega–3 fatty acids EPA and DHA bound to highly unsaturated phospholipids, closely resembling human brain phospholipids. These phospholipids – phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidylinositol, and phosphatidylethanolamine – are essential to life and are a major component of cell membranes, functioning as cell messengers and as carriers of EPA and DHA, providing a fast and effective delivery of these omega–3s. Seeking Health’s improved Optimal Krill Oil has a high phospholipid content, standardized to a minimum of 40% phospholipids, mostly as phosphatidylcholine. This updated version is considered to be a virgin krill oil, the purest form available, with higher phospholipid bioavailability, enhancing the absorption of one of krill’s shining features, the powerful antioxidant astaxanthin. Astaxanthin, the carotenoid from the microalgae, haematococcus pluvialis, is a staple of krill’s diet and gives them and other crustaceans their vibrant pink color. AstaREAL® – the best Astaxanthin available! Seeking Health’s improved Optimal Krill Oil’s astaxanthin now comes from both, naturally occurring levels found in krill oil and from AstaREAL®, a registered brand of astaxanthin extracted directly from microalgae using a solvent–free technology that ensures maximum control and purity. AstaREAL® astaxanthin is the most studied astaxanthin in the world with over 40 clinical studies, both animal and human.* Optimal Krill Oil’s Powerful Antioxidant Formula In addition to its rich phospholipids, omega–3s, and astaxanthin, Optimal Krill Oil also naturally contains several other antioxidants including, canthaxanthin, beta–carotene, vitamin E and trans–retinol vitamin A. These antioxidants offer additional protection from damaging free radicals and also protect this nutrient–dense oil from oxidation.* Seeking Health’s Optimal Krill Oil is made using a unique cold–extraction process that converts it into stable oil. This process protects the lipids from alteration and avoids peroxidation. It is highly purified and free of heavy metals and organohalide pollutants.
