UNIQUE OMEGA® Krill Oil is a patented blend of PURE oil from Antarctic Krill (tiny shrimp-like crustaceans) and oil from marine fish (from one or more of the following species: anchovy, sardine, mackerel, tuna, menhaden, herring), providing an optimal combination of Omega-3 fatty acids, phospholipids and critical antioxidants to support heart and joint health.
UNIQUE OMEGA® Krill Oil is manufactured under proprietary MSO® cold extraction process which is a special manufacturing technology by Enzymotec, Ltd. that ensures superior freshness and potency.
The Omega-3 fatty acids in UNIQUE OMEGA® KRILL OIL are absorbed and carried to the body’s cells in phospholipid form. Phospholipids form the structural basis of cell membranes and are effectively utilized by the body.*

Omega-3 - essential fatty acids in diet – The long-chain Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids DHA and EPA are popularly called Omega-3. Supplementary intake of Omega-3 is recommended in the western world, due to generally low dietary intake and Omega-3’s health-promoting benefits. Benefits attributed to Omega-3 include support for cardiovascular health and joint health. Omega-3’s also help promote healthy cognitive and nervous system function and also overall dermal health. Research indicates that even more Omega-3 benefits will be identified and that greater intake can support general whole health.*
Antarctic Ocean Krill – an important source of Omega-3 – UNIQUE OMEGA KRILL OIL is extracted from the Antarctic krill, which is rich in Omega-3. Moreover, the Omega-3 in krill oil is mainly in the Omega-3 phospholipid form, which research suggests is a preferred dietary supplement when compared to Omega-3 in triglyceride form in dietary supplements mostly derived from fish, such as fish body oil and cod liver oil.

Fatty acids in the body – The human body contains large amounts of fatty acids. A general distinction can be made: Phospholipid fatty acids are key structural and functional components of cells throughout the body, whereas specialized adipose tissue cells — the body’s energy storehouses —store triglyceride fatty acids. Because Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids cannot be synthesized in the body, dietary intake of these essential fatty acids influences their relative concentration in adipose tissue storage.*
Phospholipids — key structural and functional roles – Phospholipid fatty acids are key structural components of human cells and play a vital role in membrane functioning. Systemic transport pathways and, especially, the transport of molecules across cell membranes and sub-cellular membranes involve phospholipids. Thus, the functioning of the body’s cells, tissues, and organs is affected by the bioavailability of various phospholipid fatty acids.*
Powerful antioxidants — Astaxanthin is also found in Antarctic krill oil. This antioxidant is a potent weapon in neutralizing free radicals. It’s claimed that the antioxidants in Antarctic krill oil are 300 times greater than vitamins A and E, and 48 times greater than the antioxidants in products containing only fish oil.*
As a dietary supplement, take two (2) softgels daily or as directed by a physician.
People with shellfish allergy or bleeding disorders and those taking blood thinners or other medications should consult their physician prior to taking dietary supplements. If you are pregnant or nursing, consult your physician before taking this product. Keep out of reach of children.
Sustainability and Eco-Harvesting – A.C. Grace Company supports the cooperative for sustainable krill harvesting and management in the Antarctic Ocean. The co-operations are there to ensure that the harvesting of krill is consistent with sustainable practices. A patented Eco-Harvesting fishing system allows the fishing equipment to remain under water while a continuous stream of water flows through the hose, bringing the krill live and fresh directly into the factory vessel, which allows for processing of fresh raw material with superior product quality (unlike approaches where the catch is hauled on deck and emptied into holding tanks before processing -- thus reducing freshness).
