What Is Superba Krill Oil?
Krill oil is a supplement taken by many people in the UK because of its powerful health benefits. This 100% pure oil is sourced and extracted from Antarctic krill, which are tiny crustaceans similar to shrimps.
The Euphausia Superba species is rich in essential Omega-3 fatty acids Eicosapentaenoic acid and Docosahexaenoic acid (EPA and DHA), but in a more stable form than in other types of fish oils.
Humans normally consume around 20 different types of saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids. Among their many uses, fatty acids are incorporated into phospholipids, forming major structural elements of cell membranes.
However, the body is not able to make all of the fatty acids it needs by itself. Essential Fatty Acids, of which the long chain omega-3 fatty acids are the main ones, have to be obtained from the diet. Oily fish such as tuna, trout and salmon are rich sources of omega-3 fatty acids, and you can also take supplements such as krill oil.
What Does Krill Oil Do for the Body?
As well as fatty acids, an essential nutrient, this valuable product also contains high levels of antioxidants, and experts have said it is 48 times more potent than other omega oils.
It may also help keep joints and bones healthy, making it especially valuable for people with arthritis.
Other potential beneficial effects of krill oil include regulating levels of blood sugar and hormones, and supporting the brain, nervous system and immune system. It may also help to treat some types of depression.
A recent review of seven scientific trials concluded that krill oil significantly reduced “bad” low density lipoproteins (LDL) cholesterol and triglyceride levels. They also observed a significant elevation in concentrations of "good" high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol. This suggests that krill oil may play a role in protecting against narrowing blood vessels and, in turn, blocked arteries.
Are Krill Oil and Fish Oil the Same?
No. Fish oil comes from oily fish such as tuna, trout, anchovies, mackerel and salmon and is yellow in colour. Krill oil comes from tiny crustaceans, Antarctic krill, and contains an antioxidant called astaxanthin, which gives it a red colour.
Both are rich in the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, but the chemical structure of the fatty acids in krill oil is different from those found in fish oil.
In fish oil, the omega-3 fatty acids are bound to triglycerides, whereas in krill oil they are phospholipid bound. This may affect how efficiently the two oils are absorbed.
There is some disagreement among scientists as to whether krill oil is absorbed more easily by the body than fish oil. However, this study showed that concentrations of EPA and DHA in the blood were higher in participants who took krill oil than in those who took fish oil, suggesting that krill oil may be more easily absorbed.
Another difference that some people have noted is that LLS Superba Krill Oil does not leave a 'fishy' aftertaste.

Our Krill Oil is sourced by our partners Aker BioMarine™
They are a biotech innovator and Antarctic krill-harvesting company, dedicated to improving human and planetary health. They are the only krill supplier that controls the entire harvesting and production process.
Their fully transparent value chain stretches from sustainable krill harvesting in pristine Antarctic waters through to their Montevideo logistics hub and Houston production plant. Because they control the entire supply chain, they can trace each end-product back to a precise harvesting location, as recorded by the GPS system onboard each vessel. Their custom-built vessels produce krill meal immediately after the krill has been brought onboard via their Eco-Harvesting technology. This method ensures optimal product quality.
Harvesting of Antarctic krill is closely managed, monitored, and regulated. In fact, they have independent observers stationed onboard their krill harvesting vessels in Antarctic waters.
The observers provide transparent and detailed reporting of catch volumes and vessel positions to the relevant authorities.
Aker BioMarine™ have invested in new ocean-friendly harvesting methods (using Eco-Harvesting technology) to maintain the quality of the marine resources they harvest; this method reduces by-catch to near-zero. In 2010, their krill harvesting operations in Antarctic waters received environmental certification by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), the highest standard for sustainable fisheries. This certification was renewed in 2015.
