Krill oil - a super supplement for pets

Blog overview

Antarctic krill oil is already a popular supplement for humans, but did you know that pets can benefit from this super supplement as well?

Well yes, omega-3s are essential for pets to live a healthy and long life and krill oil is an excellent choice to boost the omega-3 levels for humans and pets alike.

Here’s why...

 

The most efficient omega-3s are marine sourced

Dogs and cats can’t produce these essential fatty acids in their bodies and so they need an effective diet. And the most efficient and traditional way is by adding supplements with omega-3s into their daily routine. 

There are many omega-3 supplements on the market, but, unfortunately, not all of them contain sufficient amounts of the essential fatty acids, EPA and DHA or are in the right delivery form. That’s why it is recommended to choose supplements with marine omega-3 fatty acids.

Health benefits of omega-3s for pets

 

Antarctic krill - the number one choice for pets

Krill is a natural source of a few powerful nutrients, but most importantly it provides long-chain omega-3s EPA and DHA in the form of phospholipids. Phospholipids are these unique and integral parts of both human and pet cells, with a vital role in the body. They are also responsible for carrying long-chain omega-3s EPA and DHA into pet's cell membranes, allowing them to be efficiently integrated into the vital organs that need them the most.

 

Why are phospholipids important for pets

On top of being an excellent source of omega-3s, krill is also naturally rich in choline and astaxanthin. Choline is essential for a healthy liver and important for brain and muscle health, while astaxanthin is an antioxidant and natural protectant. Just like Vitamin E, astaxanthin also helps to boost a pet’s immune system but is 100 times more effective.
