Krill oil offers a naturally occurring complex of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, phospholipids, and astaxanthin. This phospholipid-fatty acid molecule closely resembles that of human brain phospholipids, easily traversing the blood brain barrier to enrich brain neural tissue and potentially provide support for cognitive function.
The essential fatty acids in krill oil may also function to support menstruating women. Research indicates that omega-3 fatty acids may provide menstruation-related emotional and physical support by helping to mediate healthy hormone, prostaglandin, and neurotransmitter function.
In addition, krill oil provides an ideal essential fatty acid balance for healthy cardiovascular and platelet function, in part by maintaining healthy prostaglandin function.
