The Greatest Source of Omega-3’s You’ve Never Heard

Krill Oil

Krill oil is an oil derived from shrimp-like crustaceans called krill, and is well known for its highly effective omega-3 traits. Omega-3s are a family of essential fatty acids that play important roles in your body and provide a number of health benefits for the entire nervous system. Your body can’t produce it on its own, so you must get them from your diet. The three most important types are ALA (alpha-linolenic acid), DHA (docosahexaenoic acid), and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid). ALA is mainly found in plants, while DHA and EPA occur mostly in animal foods and algae.


Omega-3 supplements are becoming increasingly more popular and many might believe it to be a newer invention. But surprisingly, omega-3s were also incredibly popular in ancient Rome where they crushed up sea animals into an oil-based sauce, called garum. Although they used it for many purposes, it was commonly used to support digestion and occasional headaches. Spanish food scientists later began to explore Roman garum, and found that it contained extremely high amounts of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 research really started to take off with the Greenland Eskimos in the 1970s, when a group of Danish researchers began documenting the Eskimo diet. It was in these studies that researchers discovered omega-3 fatty acids and the positive effects it can have on cardiovascular health. It was not until the 1980s that omega-3s were widely acknowledged for the neurocognitive and brain benefits that we are familiar with today.

The omega-3 fatty acids, in particular EPA and DHA, are debatably the most deficient nutrients in the American diet today. This is partially due to people being misled into believing that low-fat diets are best for us. It’s important to maintain a diet that is low in trans fat and refined vegetable oils, while still incorporating healthy fats like nuts, avocados, and coconut oil that is needed to support heart health, metabolic function, and for us to operate at our healthiest cognitive level.  

Higher Levels of EPA & DHA Than Fish Oil

Krill oil has been shown to have higher levels of EPA and DHA benefits than the more common option, fish oil, due to the way it transports essential nutrients efficiently and directly into every cell of the body. BalanceGenics Krill Oil not only provides optimal omega-3 supplementation, it also contains a highly effective antioxidant, astaxanthin, offering yet another layer of protective advantages.

Krill Oil is the New Fish Oil

Ultimate Brain Function

The brain controls your ability to think, talk, feel, see, hear, remember things, walk and much more. It even controls your breathing. The brain changes throughout life, adapting to things we have learned and experienced. In a healthy brain, new connections continually develop and broken ones are repaired. As we get older, particularly from middle age onwards, our brain naturally ages as well, resulting in typical age-related cognitive decline. So, although brain health is important at every age, it becomes more imperative as we age.

By working to improve brain health you can help maintain your memory, understanding, communication, and quality of life. Regular intake of krill oil helps to support the overall health of the brain. Astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant found in krill oil, has been found to help promote cellular health and support normal brain function. In a double-blind study, reported in the Journal of Clinical Biochemistry and Nutrition, ninety-six healthy middle-aged and elderly people who experienced mild age-related forgetfulness that commonly occurs with aging, took astaxanthin or a placebo daily for 12 weeks. Tests of cognitive function were administered to all subjects every four weeks. At the end of the 12-week study period, the report concluded that astaxanthin does in fact support cognitive function in healthy individuals.

Support Heart Health

Heart health is important at every age. Your heart is at the center of your circulatory system. It pumps blood that sends oxygen and nutrients to all parts of your body while carrying away unwanted waste products.

Omega-3’s are known to promote heart health by helping to maintain a healthy blood pressure and triglycerides, while also supporting a healthy inflammatory response. Maintaining heart health is an essential part of making sure your entire body is performing at its optimal levels.

Improves Circulation 

The circulatory system is made up of blood vessels that carry blood to and from the heart. It also carries oxygen, nutrients, and hormones to cells, and removes waste products, like carbon dioxide. Krill oil encourages circulation by stimulating nitric oxide which is an important, naturally produced chemical in your body. Its most important function is to support vasodilation, which is a process that consists of relaxing the inner muscles of the blood vessels, causing them to widen and increase circulation. Nitric oxide production is essential for overall health because it allows blood, nutrients, and oxygen to travel to every part of your body effectively and efficiently.

The blood flow in your brain is called cerebral circulation, and supplies your brain with the oxygen and nutrients it needs to function properly. Although your brain is a small part of your body’s total weight—weighing only about 8 pounds—it requires a lot of energy to function. According to the Davis Lab at the University of Arizona, your brain needs about 15 percent of your heart’s cardiac output to get the oxygen and glucose it needs. In other words, it needs a lot of blood circulating through it to stay healthy.

Research also shows that astaxanthin, found naturally in krill oil, can help maintain the thickness and elasticity of the walls of arteries. This means that the compound can help maintain a healthy blood pressure and strengthen arterial walls to enhance circulation.

Shed Those Last Few Pounds

Stubborn fat could be caused by your body maintaining a low metabolic rate, so your body is burning off food and calories slower than a body with a normal metabolic rate. Your metabolism is how your body turns calories into energy, so when you say you have a “slow metabolism,” you really mean your body is hanging onto calories, causing unwanted weight gain. This could be caused by a number of things. For some people, it could be too much cortisol, known as the “stress hormone.” If you have too much cortisol, from being stressed for a long time, your body may think you need extra energy—which is why it clings to calories. Another cause of a low metabolic rate could be just simply getting older. Researchers have found that low metabolic rates may be one root cause of overweight individuals. Consuming omega 3’s like those found in krill oil, can reduce fat deposits in the body by improving your overall metabolic rate. The oil provides the antioxidant, astaxanthin, which helps bond EPA and DHA, the two omega-3 fatty acids responsible for maintaining your metabolic rate.

Reduce Free Radicals

Antioxidants help protect the body from oxidative stress, an imbalance of free radicals and antioxidants in the body. Free radicals are oxygen-containing molecules with an uneven number of electrons. Electrons like to be in pairs, so when these molecules split and become single, they scavenge the body to seek out other electrons to become a pair. Krill oil contains an antioxidant called astaxanthin, which is not found in most fish oils. Astaxanthin is known to be one of the most powerful antioxidants, and is found to be ten times as strong in limiting free radical scavenging activity when compared to other antioxidants.

Support a Healthy Inflammatory Response

Omega-3 fatty acids like those found in krill oil have been known to support the body’s inflammatory response. In fact, krill oil may be even more effective than other marine omega-3 sources because it appears to be easier for the body to use. 

Our body contains immune cells called macrophages that live in all tissues and organs, and play a key role in coordinating our inflammatory response in the body and monitor everything that happens in our tissues. Autophagy is one of the processes within macrophages that plays an important role in how a macrophage responds. Research shows that omega-3 fatty acids could improve the body’s inflammatory response by supporting the autophagy process in macrophages.

Customer Reviews


Exactly how much EPA and DHA are in the Krill Oil?

Our Krill Oil contains the naturally occurring balance of EPA and DHA contained within the krill itself. The amount of EPA and DHA may naturally vary, therefore we currently don’t offer exact quantities.

How does consuming krill oil affect the environment?

Krill is not an endangered species. Even though whales feed almost exclusively on krill, less than 1% of the biomass is harvested for human consumption. The CCAMLR (Commission of Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources) regulates and establishes catch limits to ensure that krill remains a non-endangered species. The krill industry is regulated by the Convention on the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR). This organization helps regulate the industry and ensure that krill are not farmed or fished to extinction.

Is there any fishy burp, taste or smell with your krill oil?

No, there is no fishy aftertaste or fish burps with BalanceGenics Krill Oil. Unlike fish oil, which tends to pool at the top of the stomach causing indigestion and a fishy aftertaste, krill oil is digested more easily and does not cause any reflux.

I am a vegetarian, can I take krill oil?

Krill Oil contains krill (a crustacean) and a fish (tilapia) gelatin capsule. If you are comfortable with small amounts of seafood in your diet, you can take BalanceGenics Krill Oil to supplement your vegetarian diet.

Could there be mercury in your krill oil?

Because krill are at the bottom end of the ocean’s food chain, their life span is not long enough to accumulate high levels of mercury or other contaminants.Additionally, since all of our supplements are manufactured in GMP certified and FDA registered facilities, we comply with the FDA regulations on heavy metal testing ensuring that our products are within the official guidelines for safety and purity. In addition, we 3rd lab party test every batch of our supplements to ensure quality and consistency.

Can I take Krill Oil if I’m allergic to seafood?

Consult a health care professional prior to consuming krill oil if you are allergic to seafood, or have any existing medical conditions.

What are Omega-3s and what are their benefits?

Omega-3 fatty acids are a naturally occurring fat that the human body is unable to produce. The omega-3’s that make krill oil beneficial are EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). EPA and DHA are known to promote brain and cardiovascular health, while also reducing free radical damage and supporting a healthy weight. Omega-3 fatty acids are commonly lacking in the American diet, which is why supplementation is often recommended.

What is krill?

Krill are small, shrimp-like crustaceans sourced from the Antarctic Ocean with high amounts of EPA and DHA (two of the most important omega-3s). The omega-3s in krill oil are found in the form of phospholipids, which helps increase their absorption and effectiveness. Krill also contains astaxanthin, a naturally occurring carotenoid with antioxidant properties.
