Omega-3 fatty acids are necessary for maintaining optimum health, but the body cannot produce them. Since the typical North American diet is deficient in omega-3 fatty acids, supplements provide the simplest, most consistent source of these essential fatty acids.
The most important forms of omega-3 fatty acids for maintaining and supporting cardiovascular health are eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).†
These two forms of essential fatty acids have been studied extensively for their roles in maintaining healthy cholesterol and blood pressure levels already within a normal range.1†
Research has shown that omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA can help support healthy levels of circulating cytokines, thus promoting optimum heart health.†
Kirkland Signature Krill Oil delivers 120 mg of omega-3 fatty acids, including 60 mg of EPA and 30 mg of DHA, offering you access to the heart-healthy benefits of omega-3 fatty acids in one convenient, easy-to-swallow softgel.†
The omega-3 fatty acids in Kirkland Signature Krill Oil are stored in a different biochemical form than other fish oils. That’s because krill oil contains phospholipid-bound omega-3s, which are easier to absorb.5†
Phospholipids are a class of waxy, oily fats, that are the essential building blocks of all cell membranes — and they have a simpler digestive process than other forms of fatty acids.
While triglycerides need to be broken down and digested in the small intestine, phospholipids can be absorbed intact. This simpler digestion process suggests phospholipids offer greater bioavailability in the human body than the omega-3 triglycerides found in other fish oils.†
Astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant that not only gives the softgel its natural red color, but also helps protect your body’s cells in the battle against damage from free radicals.†
Kirkland Signature Krill Oil contains 150 mcg of naturally occurring astaxanthin. Almost every cell in the body, including the eyes, brain, heart, and kidney, can benefit from astaxanthin, which has been called one of the world’s most powerful antioxidants.2,3,4
Kirkland Signature Krill Oil softgels are small—ideal for those who find regular fish oil capsules difficult to swallow—and leave no fishy aftertaste.
Kirkland Signature Krill Oil is guaranteed to contain consistently fresh, stable, high quality oil that is harvested in a sustainable manner.
The krill oil used is independently certified by Friend of the Sea for being harvested in a manner designed to protect the Antarctic eco-system.
The precise krill-catching methodology used to manufacture Kirkland Signature Krill Oil uses an acoustic search technology that ensures only krill swarms of a suitable size are harvested. The processing method does not require large quantities of krill and is not dependent on a continuous pumping system to bring the krill on board.
In addition, bottom trawling is not used in the harvesting for Kirkland Signature Krill Oil, as zero by-catch is allowed. This helps prevent any harm to the seabed and preserves the area for natural predators.
Suggested Use: Take one (1) softgel daily, preferably with a meal.
Other Ingredients: Bovine Gelatin, Glycerin, Water, Ethyl Vanillin.
Caution: If you are pregnant or nursing, allergic to shellfish, taking medications, facing surgery, have bleeding problems or undergoing any other treatment that may affect the ability of blood to clot, consult your physician before taking this product.
