Neulife Krill is high in antioxidants. These antioxidants help our bodies fight against something called free radicals. Free radicals have been linked to contributing towards certain diseases such as cancers. Antioxidants also help boost the immune system, which is the body's first line of defence when it comes to fighting illness. Astaxanthin is different to many antioxidants as it is able to cross the blood brain barrier, thus it could help to protect the eyes, brain and nervous system from free radial damage. Krill oil contains high amounts of Omega 3 fatty acids and is very similar in action to both fish oil and cod liver oil. Omega 3 is needed to maintain healthy growth and regeneration of every cell in the body and can be converted into prostaglandins which regulate many body functions. These fatty acids are able to regulate levels of triglycerides in the blood, meaning they could be useful in helping to lower total cholesterol levels and maintain the correct ratios of HDL ('good') and LDL ('bad') cholesterol, thus slowing down the progression of atherosclerosis, a condition which causes hardening and thickening of the artery walls. It is the presence of astaxanthin that sets krill oil apart from traditional fish oils. Astaxanthin is thought to be 300 times more powerful than the vitamins A & E. Krill Oil also has anti-inflammatory properties, which could be useful in helping to ease joint pain associated with arthritis.
