Joint Krill Oil by Twinlab contains the revolutionary, 100% pure, patented Neptune Krill Oil (NKO) with unique phospholipids not available in fish oils. NKO phospholipids contain substantially high quantities of EPA (45 mg) and DHA (27 mg) Unlike other sources of omega-3, this fatty acid profile aids recognition by the body based on its resemblance to the human brain's own phospholipids. In a recent double-blind study, taking 300 mg of NKO daily was shown to help maintain healthy levels of CRP (C-Reactive Protein).
CRP is a protein associated with joint health. Joint Krill Oil helps support sore and stiff joints, while also promoting flexibility. PCB/toxic metal free.
What is Neptune Krill Oil (NKO)?
Using the patented process, Neptune Krill Oil is extracted from the zooplankton crustacean found in the Antarctic Ocean. The rapidly repopulating krill assures a plentiful, sustainable harvest of nature's finest omega-3 oils. Twinlab's PMS Krill Oil is harvested, processed and tested to be free of PCB and toxic metals. Also, due to the fact that the omega-3 in NKO has superior antioxidant activity, there will be no fishy repeats (burp-ups).
Why Twinlab PMS Krill Oil?
Efficacy - Contains a unique and substantial offering of EPA (100.5 mg) and DHA (60 mg), the two most commonly deficient polyunsaturated fatty acids in the typical diet, thus being more efficacious and of higher value. the NKO fatty acid profile resembles that of a human brain's own phospholipids, making it easier to be recognized by the body. Uniqueness - Consists of unique marine flavonoids which are not found in other non-plant sources. these natural marine flavonoids facilitate bioavailability of antioxidants in this product. Superiority - Possesses proven, superior antioxidants such as vitamin A, E, esterified astaxanthin and marine flavonoids. Laboratory testing shows that the antioxidant activity in NKO is 48 times greater than fish oils tested. NKO had an antioxidant activity (ORAC lipoFL) of 378 compared to tested fish oils, which only had 8. ORAC is a bio-analytical test that evaluates antioxidant activity against harmful radicals.
