Krill-plex is derived from Antarctic krill, a zooplankton crustacean offering a naturally unique balance of omega-3 fatty acids, phospholipids and antioxidants, including astaxanthin. Specific to krill oil is an omegaphospholipid complex that is rich in eicosapentanoic acid (EPA) and docosahexanoic acid (DHA). Carefully preserved by a distinct cold extraction process, this novel structure consists of EPA and DHA as two fatty acid side chains on the phospholipid molecule. Additionally, an astaxanthin ester is attached to the EPA, providing an intricately bonded molecule that allows for direct delivery of these nutrients into the cell nucleus, and most importantly, the mitochondria. The phospholipid-fatty acid profile closely resembles that of human brain phospholipids, allowing it to easily transverse the blood-brain barrier. Krill oil provides an ideal essential fatty acid balance for the maintenance of good health. This unique, highly bioavailable complex provides particular support for joint comfort and healthy inflammatory balance. A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study suggests that krill oil promotes joint comfort and reduces blood C-reactive protein levels, a clinical marker of inflammation. Furthermore, results showed statistically significant support for joint flexibility and function.
