Pure extract of Antarctic krill with no added extras.
Every membrane of every cell in our body contains phospholipids - an exceptional lipid with both water-loving and water-repelling abilities due to its advantageous molecular structure. RIMFROST Antarctic krill oil provides omega-3s bound to these unique phospholipids giving us the beneficial health effects of omega-3s in a more bio-efficient manner compared to other sources of marine omega-3 fatty acids.
Phospholipid-bound Omega-3s from RIMFROST krill oil are easily absorbed!*

Krill oils vary greatly in terms of phospholipid, Omega-3 or astaxanthin concentrations despite consistency of these agents found naturally in krill.
New quality markers reveal the true quality differences in commercially available krill products, which are primarily determined by different processing methods. The powerful antioxidant astaxanthin can be found in varying concentrations, which is also a result of the type and nature of the processing method employed. RIMFROST Antarctic krill oil uses a gentle and rapid process to provide low oxidation and low levels of lipids degradation, shown by the new quality markers.
High levels of naturally occurring astaxanthin indicate a good quality krill extract.
Hydrophobic pyrroles are easy-to-measure (by spectrophotometry) oxidation products that indicate the degree of non-enzymatic browning reactions i.e. oxidative status.
High relative levels of intact phospholipid forms of phosphatidylcholine (PC) and phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) as well as low levels of degraded phospholipids (e.g. lysophosphatidylcholine) are good quality indicators.
