Dietary supplement. Blended with 100% pure patented NKO Krill Oil. Superior antioxidant activity, 48 x's higher. Unique marine flavonoids. Clinically shown to be effective. Helps maintain cholesterol levels. May reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Twinlab's Cardio Krill Oil 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 (75 mg) and DHA (45 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. Research shows that NKO regulates blood lipids already within desired levels [Buena R, et al. Evaluation of the effects of Neptune krill oil on the clinical course of hyperlidemia. Alt Med Rev. 2004; 9(4):420-8.]. In addition to this cutting edge omgea-3 ingredient, Twinlab's Cardio Krill is unique because it contains vitamins B6, B12 and folic acid to help support a healthy heart.
Studies have shown that B-vitamins can help maintain healthy homocysteine levels, a protein which can build up in the blood (Bronstrup, A. et al. Lowering of homocysteine concentrations in elderly men and women. Int J Vitam Nutr Res. 1999; 69(3):187-93). Cardio Krill Oil helps maintain cholesterol levels that are already within the normal range, while it may also reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. (Consumption of omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. FDA evaluated the data and determined that, although there is scientific evidence supporting the claim, the evidence is not conclusive. 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 Cardio 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 Twin Lab Cardio Krill Oil? Efficacy - Contains a unique and substantial offering of EPA (75 mg) and DHA (45 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 resemble 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 the 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 other tested fish oils, which only had 8. ORAC is a bio-analytical test that evaluates antioxidant against harmful radicals. NKO is a trademark of Neptune Technologies & Bioressources Inc. of Quebec, Canada.
