The unique advantage of AstaOmega Oil is that all its nutrients come from a single source, the incredible krill, being free from preservatives or additives.Here are 3 things you should know about krill

Astaxanthin – a powerful antioxidant

A natural and powerful antioxidant, astaxanthin protects all body cells and boosts the immune system. Astaxanthin contains a unique molecular structure due to double bonds in the center and a hydroxyl and keto group on each end. These are responsible for their antioxidant properties.

Antioxidants are essential for optimal health of pets, cognition, and longevity by preventing oxidative stress. The astaxanthin found in AstaOmega Oil is natural and both sustainable and traceable.

Marine omega-3s - essential fatty acids

Omega-3s are important nutrients for keeping pets healthy and can help them maintain a shiny coat. There are many pet foods with plant-based omega-3s, however, pets are not able to convert plant-based omega-3s to EPA and DHA well, and therefore most veterinarians recommend a marine sourced omega-3 supplement.

What is the difference between plant-based omega-3 and marine omega-3

These are some of the most important health benefits of having a diet that included marine omega-3s:

Heart - EPA and DHA are known to reduce both cardiovascular risk and high blood pressure.

Brain - DHA is important for cognitive and behavioral function, and can also diminish the amount of neuronal loss when aging.

Liver - Omega-3s improve liver health and function and are well-known for their anti-inflammatory effects.

Immune Function - Omega-3s strengthen the immune system by making immune cells more flexible and resistant; they also help the immune system 'switch off' the inflammatory response and inhibit the production of pro-inflammatory components.

Proven health benefits

The first study on active Alaskan Huskies has shown amazing results. 20 Alaskan Huskies were random divided into two test groups. One group received a supplement with plant-based omega-3s (from flaxseed oil), while the other group received a supplement of marine omega-3s (EPA/DHA, from QRILL Pet AstaOmega Oil).

A veterinarian examined the dogs at the start of the study and at 3 and 6 weeks. The objective of this study was to compare the effects of the flaxseed oil to the QRILL Pet AstaOmega Oil on the dogs.

We wanted to determine which supplement had the most impact on the Omega-3 Index, which indicates the amount of health-promoting fatty acids present in red blood cell membranes in dogs.

What is the Omega-3 Index

After 6-weeks, we found out the dogs that received a marine omega-3s supplement of AstaOmega Oil increased their Omega-3 Index by 62%, while the flaxseed oil group decreased by 40%. We concluded that marine omega-3s are a more efficient source of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA.

A sustainable and traceable marine omega-3 source

AstaOmega Oil is sourced from one of the most sustainable fisheries in the world and has guaranteed traceability from sea to product. Antarctic krill is a sustainable marine omega-3 source coming from the pristine waters of the Southern Ocean. A species of tiny but incredible crustaceans, krill has been recognized as a powerful and sustainable ingredient for pet food.
