EPA-GLA+®

£ 27.75
EPA-GLA+® is a comprehensive essential fatty acid complex product in combined with Borage oil and liquid lecithin extracted from 100 % non-GMO rapeseed oil. This unique composition gives a complete balance of Omega 3-6-7-9 fatty acids and phospholipids. EPA-GLA+® contains the long polyunsaturated Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, which we usually only get from fish. EPA and DHA are essential fatty acids in the sense that they must be supplied to the body in the same manner as for example vitamins, because the body cannot produce these essential building blocks itself, and  supplementation is required.

The heart, brain and eyesight

EPA and DHA helps the heart to function normally, and this effect is obtained with a daily intake of 250 mg of EPA and DHA (total). DHA contributes to the maintenance of normal vision and the normal function of the brain, and these effects can be achieved with a daily intake of 250 mg DHA.

Cholesterol Level

The Omega-6 fatty acid linoleic acid is also included in EPA-GLA+®. Linoleic acid contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels. This effect is obtained with a daily intake of 10 g Linoleic acid. EPA-GLA+® contributes 1 g per. Suggested daily dose.

OmniKrill®

£ 23.49
OmniKrill® contains krill oil of premium quality. The oil has its origins in the Antarctic Ocean - the world's cleanest waters - where krill  live in large colonies. Health food stores in Denmark have awarded OmniKrill® Health Food Product of the Year in 2011 with the comments:` Good quality` - `Beneficial effect` - `Caring for the environment` - High level of active substances - Innovative and cutting edge. Served in capsules made of fish gelatin. There is no fishy after taste and does not cause "indigestion" typically associated with the intake of marine oils. 

Odorless capsule

In the Autumn of 2016 OmniKrill® was relaunched with a completely new type of capsule – still made from fish gelatin. What distinguishes the new capsule is that it is now completely odorless, thus avoiding the characteristic krill-odor associated with traditional capsules. Changing the capsule is an important part of our Nordic Nutraceutical Pure-strategy, in which we always strive to offer our users as clean products as possible by reducing the use of excipients to an absolute minimum. The new type of capsule does not require excipients at all – as opposed to traditional capsules – which means the capsule contains the active, beneficial krill-oil served in a capsules made from fish gelatin – and nothing else! Another important advantage of the new capsule is the increased stability of the sensitive constituents, made possible by the innovative sealing of the capsule, which reduces risk of leakage and oxidation to an absolute minimum not seen before with traditional capsules.

Essential fatty acids

The oil provides the body with the healthy Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA in phospholipid form. OmniKrill® was the first product in Denmark to contain the healthy Omega-3 fatty acids in the phospholipid form, and the first product to offer this new generation of Omega-3 fatty acids, which have superior bio availability compared to traditional fatty acid forms. EPA and DHA are essential fatty acids that must be supplemented to the body in the same manner as vitamins because the body cannot produce these essential building blocks itself. 

The heart, brain and eyesight

The long-chain Omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA help the heart to function normally. Studies in healthy humans have shown that this beneficial effect on the heart depends on the dose. This effect is obtained with a daily intake of 250 mg of EPA and DHA (total). OmniKrill® also provides DHA to maintain normal vision and normal function of the brain. These beneficial effects are obtained with a daily intake of 250 mg of DHA. The Omega-3 fatty acid DHA is the most common fatty acid in the human brain, as much as 20% of all the fatty acids present in the brain is DHA.

Complement

OmniKrill® constitutes a good addition to to your diet, which according to the official dietary recommendations from the National Food Authority should preferably contain fish 2 times a week. Biosym was one of the first companies to introduce fish oils into the Danish market back in the 1980's. We  have great expertise when it comes to  selection, composition, production, and the quality of marine oils we use. OmniKrill® equates to safety and quality. The gentle process where krill oil's natural properties are preserved and contact with atmospheric oxygen is avoided, and its high content of natural antioxidants provides a very stable oil, which is better protected against rancidity than conventional fish oil. The presence of phospholipids and the powerful antioxidant astaxanthin in good amounts has a protective and stabilising effect on the fatty acids of the krill oil. This, and the gentle handling of oil during manufacturing, is the main reason why OmniKrill® have unusually good purity figures – the  Totoxnumbers. Nordic Nutraceutical recommends that the capsules in OmniKrill® be swallowed whole, and that no attempt is made to bite into the capsule. Pure, natural Krill oil naturally has a very distinctive, powerful fish-shrimp-like smell and taste. This characteristic smell and taste should not be confused with rancidity. OmniKrill® has impressively good purity figures. 

Sustainability

Krill are an important component of the Antarctic ecosystem. A single krill can weigh up to two grams and can be up to five to ten years old. The Antarctic krill population overall by weight, is about 400 million tons thus making it the most common animals in the world measured by weight. The Organisation The Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) monitors the catch of krill to ensure maintaining a sustainable population of Antarctic krill. The organization's monitoring ensures that only a tiny portion of the stock is used for production of krill oil, as well as ensuring that the animals that feed on krill, are not affected by the harvesting of krill. OmniKrill® is also certified by Friend of the Sea, a leading international organisation that controls the way marine  based products are  harvested. OmniKrill®  meets the organisation sustainability criteria.
