Osumex 100% Pure Antarctic Krill Oil
Osumex Pure Antarctic Krill Oil is produced from krills harvested only in the pure unpolluted
waters of the Antarctic Ocean. The producer practices safe and sustainable harvesting and collaborates closely with eco-watch groups such as WWF to
ensure sustainable harvesting of the Antarctic krill and oil production.
The Antarctic krill lives in the unpolluted coldest and most pristine waters on earth. It also holds very potent digestive enzymes that make
it unsuitable for trawling because it practically self destructs very quickly when taken out of the water for processing. Safe and sustainable harvesting means
the processing equipment stays under water while a continuous stream of water brings the fresh raw krill on board the factory vessel. This
allows for processing of fresh raw material on board the floating life science factory which means bioactive components are retained for
superior quality. This means that the krill oil obtained are of the purest and highest quality without any adulteration. There are many krill
oil products sold today where it is produced from small batches and multiple small sources that are pooled together to make one batch for
production. These cannot be considered pure krill oil.
Kril Oil ingredients:
Osumex Antarctic Pure Krill Oil is rich in natural Omega-3 Fatty Acids and Astaxanthin
a very powerful antioxidants giving the rich red colour. Due to the presence of Astaxanthin content which is recognized for its
health-promoting free radical suppression no additives are required to maintain the integrity and purity of the krill oil in the vegetable
soft gel capsule. Most fish oil supplements on the other hand require much additives to ensure viability and to maintain shelf-life. In
addition a significant proportion of the long-chain Omega-3 fatty acids in the krill oil is in phospholipid form.
In contrast, the Omega-3 in dietary supplements derives from cod liver, seal and or fish oils are almost exclusively Omega-3 triglyceride fatty
Phospholipids Omega-3 fatty acids are water dispersible and this affects the way our body can absorb and
utilize the Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 phospholipids are more easily digestible and absorb in the body’s small
intestines. Studies have shown that Omega-3 phospholipids are more effectively distributed to tissues and cells than Omega-3
triglycerides and therefore considered a superior source for building and maintaining cell structures and promoting cellular functions. Studies
have also shown that the Omega-3 bound phospholipids are far less prone to oxidations than Omega-3 in traditional triglyceride forms. The
presence of the powerful antioxidant Astaxanthin inhibits fatty acids oxidation thus preserving and prolonging product shelf life. It therefore
secures a stable oil product within the vegetable soft gel capsule.
Astaxanthin has been studied and research extensively and available in synthetic form. It is a carotenoid
belonging to a larger class of phytochemicals known as terpenes and a colourful, lipid-soluble pigment. For humans Astaxanthin is valuable as
an antioxidant and its property makes it ideal for boosting the function of the immune system. The effectiveness of Astaxanthin is
significantly higher than other carotenoids such as lycopene and lutein and even considered at least ten (10) times more
effective than beta-carotene and may be as much as five hundred (500) times more powerful than Vitamin E.
Astaxanthin unlike some carotenoids does not convert to Vitamin A (retinol) in the human body. Too much Vitamin
A is toxic for a human but Astaxanthin is not. Astaxanthin is absorbed by the duodenal mucosa and transported to the liver where it binds with
a lipoprotein for transport throughout the body to the cells. The polar end groups attach to the outer and inner side of the cell membrane,
where free radical attacks first occur. The hydroxyl and carbonyl groups in Astaxanthin help to anchor this molecule to the cell membrane,
thus strengthening it. Astaxanthin in addition to entrapping free radicals, also de-charges singlet and triplet oxygen and inhibits reactive
oxygen, giving it anti-inflammatory properties. Astaxanthin may also increase gap junctional communication between cells, which is a mechanism
in the body thought to inhibit the growth of cancer cells. It is a valuable as an antioxidant and can have a beneficial impact on preventing
the development of cardiovascular or heart diseases. It can also be of benefit to the function of the eyes, brain and the nervous system
because Antaxanthin does cross the blood-brain barrier.
In summary, the major benefits of using Astaxanthin include the following:
- inhibits lipid peroxidation at the cell level thus protecting the cell membrane and the mitochondrial membrane within the cell, ie., stop
cell destruction by free radical activity. This is like an internal sunscreen
to enhance tolerance to sun exposure.
- crosses the blood-brain barrier which makes it available to the eye, brain and central nervous system to alleviate oxidative stress that
contributes to ocular and neurodegenerative diseases such as glaucoma and Alzheimer’s.
- prevents excessive free radical activity by entrapping free radicals by adding them to its long, double-bonded chain rather than donating
- stabilizes cell membrane like a bridge because its polar end groups span the cell membrane, thus increasing rigidity and mechanical
strength. This accelerates muscle healing for active users and athletes and lessens the soreness for those who get sore easily when doing
strenuous exercises. This can enhance athletic performance in both strength and endurance.
- binds to a lipoprotein, an efficient transport vehicle, making it more bioavailable.
- increases the immune system function including heightened production of antiobody-secreting cells and Interleukin2 and suppression of
Iterferon-gamma. Inhibits reactive oxygen species that cause inflammation and reduces pain from arthritis and related issues.
- reduces muscular, repetitive motion stress, chronic back and arthritis pain.
Osumex Antarctic Pure Krill Oil is safe to use with no known side effects or toxicity from preclinical studies and research. However, it is
always recommended that you check with your doctor or professional health-care give before using the product.
Osumex Antarctic Pure Krill Oil is encapsulated in a vegetable soft gel cap and therefore does not contain gluten or
gelatin from animal sources.
Warning: Contains shellfish (krill).People with shellfish allergy, coagulopathy or taking anticoagulants
or other medications should notify their physician and be tested prior to taking dietary supplements. If you are pregnant or nursing, consult
your physician before taking this product. Keep out of reach of children.
