5 Reasons Why EFA Icon Krill Oil is Better

We’ve all heard about the benefits of taking fish oils.  To name a few: improved heart health, helping treat mental disorders, aiding in weight loss and even supporting eye health and pregnancy.  However, Jaylab EFA Icon Krill Oil is much better for your overall health than regular fish oil for multiple reasons.

  1. Antioxidant Power

Believe it or not, Krill Oil is 297 times greater than vitamin A or E in this regard and 47 times greater than regular fish oil.  Remember antioxidants help prevent oxidation which creates free radicals that damage our cells.  Regular fish oil is actually very low in antioxidant content.

  1. Astaxanthin

The most powerful antioxidant effects are produced by Astaxanthin.  This substance is NOT present in regular fish oil.  What does it do?  It helps to protect and stimulate the brain for better memory, moods and clearer thinking.

  1. Phospholipids

Krill oil contains this lipid which is a major component in all cell membranes.  They form a microscopic barrier that helps cells filter out toxins and free radical damage that can lead to serious illnesses.  Regular fish oil does NOT contain this.

  1. Absorption

Krill Oil has 500% better absorption by your body compared to regular fish oil…yes you heard that correct.  This study is conducted by the U.S. Government National Institutes of Health. 

  1. No Side Effects

There are no digestion problems or fishy aftertaste while taking Krill Oil.  Additionally, there are no “fish burps” or acid reflux that may occur from taking regular fish oil.

Well there you have it.  I took regular over-the-counter fish oil for years.  Now what I know about the benefits of EFA Icon Krill Oil, making the switch was a no-brainer.  I suggest you make the switch as well.  If you’re going to purchase a supplement providing Omega-3 fatty acids, you might as well go with the product delivering the most benefits.  We carry them at Triple Jump Fitness for your convenience.
