Nervous System Support
Krill is a tiny ocean crustacean that packs a big nutritional punch; it provides both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, which can help support cognitive functioning and boost your memory. Since it is better able to cross the blood-brain barrier for effective absorption, krill works to enhance brain neuron tissue. Krill oil also contains a good balance of fatty acids, which may support platelet function and cardiovascular health. Krill-plex is a phospholipid, antioxidant and essential fatty acid complex. It contains EPA, DHA and astaxanthin. Its phospholipid profile consists of phosphatidylethanolamine, phosphatidylinositol and phosphatidylcholine. When combined with the fatty acids in this supplement, it is similar to the brain’s phospholipids. This is why it might help protect your skin from the ravages of the environment and sun exposure. Women may find krill oil especially beneficial during menstruation. Omega-3s may work to moderate the functioning of neurotransmitters, prostaglandin and hormone, which may help you feel better, both physically and mentally, during menstrual periods.
