Omega-3 fats are Essential Fatty Acids. They are called ‘Essential’ as your body cannot make them yet they are essential for many body processes and functions. You must get them from food. These is much controversy about which Omega-3s are required for health.
Both plants and marine animals like fish and krill contain Omega-3. Fish are often high in mercury and other environmental toxins that pose dangers to health. Fish synthesize omega-3 fatty acids from consuming a natural diet of phytoplankton and algae. Most fish we consume these day is farmed, so fish and fish oil are now questionable source of Essential Fatty Acids.
Essential Fatty Acids – Omega-3 and Krill:
- Krill are a zooplankton
- Krill feed on phytoplankton
- Krill have a short lifespan reducing environmental exposure
- Only Antarctic krill contain the unique lipid profile
Zooplankton may not be vegan friendly because they feed on phytoplankton or other zooplankton. The problem for vegans is a new known fact that krill is the best source of omega-3. The critical differences between Omega-3 fats from plants and marine animals.
This article is the tip of the iceberg, so to speak, about the purity and bioavailable Omega-3 found within Krill. This article points out in detail why plant sources of Omega-3 do not provide the same benefits as the Omega-3 found in Antarctic krill. As a Trichologist and Nutritionist of 20 years, I found this information new and a bit of a missing link in the chemistry of Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids. It simply makes sense. Don’t take my work for it, follow the link and read the article from one of my favorite and trusted bloggers Dr. Mercola.
Absolique Hair Health Clinic use and recommend Modere Krill Complex. The primary source of omega 3 is krill oil made exclusively from the species Euphausia superba or Antarctic Krill sourced from the pristine waters of the Southern Ocean – a harvest of less than 0.04% of the available biomass. To boost the health benefits, Modere has added additional nutritional support with the plant based ingredients cranberry seed oil – a wonderful source of omega 3-6-9 – and chia which is also a potent source of omega 3-6-9 as well as providing antioxidant benefits with a high ORAC value of 8,100 vitamin E equivalents. Further nutritional support is provided by evening primrose oil; Linum usitatissimum (linseed) seed and r,s-alpha lipoic acid.
