What are the benefits of Antarctic Pure Krill Oil?
Krill oil is extracted from shrimp-like crustaceans called krill. It is rich in anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids which promote heart health and also contain an antioxidant called astaxanthin. Krill oil also has the potential to be a good supplemental treatment for joint pain and arthritis due to its anti-inflammatory effect.
Krill oil and heart health
