CleanMarine™ Krill Oil provides omega-3 in phospholipid form, mainly as phosphatidylcholine. Omega-3 availability is increased when delivered by phospholipids compared with other sources, due to more efficient absorption of omega-3 phospholipids in the small intestine. After absorption, phosphatidylcholine is incorporated into cell membranes and participates in fatty acid transport in blood and across membranes. This is thought to impact the distribution of fatty acids to the body’s organs and tissues because of effects on lipoprotein assemblages, which serve as vehicles that transport fatty acids via blood serum. As a consequence of the enhanced availability of omega-3 when delivered by phospholipids in humans, it is proposed that CleanMarine™ Krill Oil is a superior source of omega-3 for promoting heart, brain, bone and joint health.
The manufacturers of CleanMarine™ - Aker BioMarine™ and World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Norway co-operates for sustainable krill harvesting and management in the Antarctic Ocean. In addition our supplier is CCAMLR licenced (Convention on the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources) which is an international organisation set up (in part) to regulate Krill fishing in the Antarctic. The co-operations shall ensure that today’s and tomorrow’s harvesting of krill are consistent with sustainable practices and encourage dialog with experts so to keep Aker BioMarine`s fisheries operations at the forefront of environmentally sound and sustainable practices.
