XanthOmega high astaxanthin dark red krill oil softgels
It contains exceptionally high levels of both esterfied astaxanthin and phospholipids, which account for the dark red color of the softgels.
- Fortified with increased levels of astaxanthin for expanded health benefits
- It would take 8 conventional krill softgels to equal the astaxanthin levels in just 1 XanthOmega softgel!
- Manufactured in a GMP Certified Facility
Krill are tiny crustaceans found in the sea and make up the worlds 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.
Designs for Healths improved XanthOmega 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 krills shining features, the powerful antioxidant astaxanthin.
Astaxanthin, the carotenoid from the microalgae, haematococcus pluvialis, is a staple of krills diet and gives them and other crustaceans their vibrant pink color. Designs for Health has increased the amount of astaxanthin in XanthOmega from its original 1.5mg to an impressive12mg per serving. Many studies suggest that this exceptionally high level of astaxanthin offers an array of therapeutic benefits, which may include:
AstaREAL - the Astaxanthin of Choice
- Powerful antioxidant support
- Cardiovascular health support - helping to promote healthy lipid profiles; potential anti-hypertensive
- Sports performance support - increasing muscle endurance and reducing exercise-induced muscle damage
- Eye support - Reducing eye fatigue and improving visual acuity
- Supporting skin health - protecting against UVA-induced aging, as in skin sagging and wrinkles
- Anti-inflammatory support
- Gastric health support - helping to reduce gastric inflammation and reflux symptoms
Design for Healths improved XanthOmega krill oils 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.XanthOmega Krill Oils Stellar Line-Up
In addition to its rich phospholipids, omega-3s, and astaxanthin,XanthOmega also naturally contains several other antioxidants including, canthaxanthin, beta-carotene, vitamin E and trans-retinol vitamin A. These antioxidants offer benefits of their own while also protecting this nutrient-dense oil from oxidation.
Designs for Healths XanthOmega 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 free of heavy metals and organohalide pollutants, making it extremely pure. This product does not cause reflux or regurgitation commonly experienced by those consuming regular fish oil supplements.
