Fatty acids make up all the fats in our body, and certain fatty acids are essential to human health because they are used to build and maintain every cell in our body. Essential fatty acids, like Omega-3s, are nutrients that your body needs but cannot create on its own — you have to get them through food. The two omega-3 fatty acids that are the most crucial to your health are EPA and DHA. These "good" essential fats are required by your body for maintaining overall health.
Research shows that two of the best ways to improve your overall health with supplements includes increasing your intake of naturally occurring antioxidants and increasing your intake of omega-3 EPA/DHA oils. In a perfect world, you could get all your omega-3s from eating fish. Unfortunately, studies show that eating fish can potentially expose you to a high number of contaminants like mercury, PCBs, heavy metals, and radioactive poisons. Krill oil solves this dilemma by synergistically combining antioxidants and omega-3s together in a way that no other omega-3 oil provides.
Thousands of scientific studies over the past 35 years highlight the crucial role of Omega-3 EPA/DHA at all stages of life — from brain and eye development in infants, to the maintenance of cardiovascular health in adults and seniors. Omega-3 DHA is a major component of brain and nerve tissue and plays a vital role in brain and eye development and function throughout your life. EPA acts as a primary building block for the cells in your vital organs, and helps the cells in your brain communicate by increasing membrane fluidity and optimal cell signaling.
With naturally occurring antioxidants Vitamin A, Vitamin E, and Astaxanthin, recent scientific studies have shown that the omega-3 oils in NatureWise OmegaWise Krill Oil help to maintain a healthy heart, joint health, and normal brain and vision health.*
Phospholipids are the building blocks for your cell membranes. They regulate cellular transport and protect cell membranes from free radicals. Unlike fish oils, pure krill oil carries omega-3 oils in the form of phospholipids. By encapsulating the omega-3 oils in the same material as your cell membranes, omega-3 krill oil freely passes through cell walls to where it's needed most. Scientific studies have shown that the safest and most effective carriers of EPA and DHA are these phospholipids. Unfortunately, standard fish oils (and some other krill oil brands) lack this phospholipid complex. Instead they contain omega-3 fatty acids in the less beneficial form of free triglycerides. This means that when you use krill oil, you need only a fraction of the dose of fish oil to receive the same benefit, and because it is more fully absorbed into the cells of your body, there are no unwanted side effects like fish breath or fishy burps.
The Eco-Harvesting technology that produces NatureWise OmegaWise Krill Oil uses a specially designed trawl and direct hose system that singles out unwanted by-catch and releases it, unharmed. This restricts environmental impact and prevents the krill from enzymatic degradation, allowing for greater preservation of all key nutrients in the end product and provides for complete utilization of the krill without waste. In addition, the custom-built vessel processes krill meal immediately after the krill is on board. This impressive infrastructure aboard the vessel ensures continuous delivery of krill meal to a climate-controlled warehouse from which it is carefully transported to market.
With the only vertically integrated company within the krill harvesting and processing industry, you have the unique ability to trace every batch of krill production back to the exact location of its harvest through the sophisticated GPS system onboard each vessel. As a result, NatureWise OmegaWise Krill Oil is the only krill oil in the world that provides you with the exact GPS coordinates of your catch, printed right on the product label of your NatureWise bottle, so you can see for yourself the exact location where your krill oil was caught and harvested right from our company website using our online OmegaTrack software. Combined with our unparalleled NatureWise customer service you have come to expect, it doesn't get any better than that.
