Testa Vegan Krill Oil DHA & EPA Omega-3 contains two additional active ingredients in addition to DHA + EPA: Astaxanthin and phospholipids. The last two named active substances have the effect of improving absorption into the blood. As this product has two additional active ingredients and therefore a different DHA/EPA ratio per capsule, we recommend taking 2 capsules a day for Vrill. This means that a box of Vegan Krill oil will last shorter than a box of our Algae oil.
1. Testa Vegan Krill Oil DHA + EPA is besides a high daily dose of omega-3 fatty acids, namely 280 mg DHA and 160 mg EPA (at a daily intake of 2 capsules), also rich in phospholipids and astaxanthin. As a result, the oil is better absorbed by the body.
2. Phospholipids are important building blocks for our cell membranes. The cell membrane is the outer covering of every living cell in our body. All substances entering or leaving the cell must pass through the membrane. A good condition of all our cell membranes is therefore essential for good health.
3. Astaxanthin is a carotenoid made by plankton, algae and certain plants, fungi and bacteria to protect themselves from the harmful effects of sunlight and oxygen; the highest concentration of astaxanthin is found in microalgae. Astaxanthin is a powerful and versatile antioxidant that can protect our cells from external damage, much more powerful than vitamin E.
