Testa Vegan Vrill DHA + EPA contains, as you can read in the name, two additional active substances in addition to DHA + EPA. The ratio of active ingredients is different to our DHA + EPA product and therefore for Vrill we recommend 2 capsules per day (see below):
– DHA (docosahexaenoic acid): 280 mg
– EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid): 160 mg
– Astaxanthin: 1500 mcg
– Phostatidylcholine: 230 mg
– DHA (docosahexaenoic acid): 250 mg
– EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid): 125 mg
Krill oil comes from small, shrimp-like crustaceans. Most krill oil is extracted from Antarctic krill, which live in the cold waters around Antartica. Krill feed on algae and are in turn food for fish, whales, penguins and seals.
Krill oil is an animal alternative to fish oil, but due to a different chemical composition higher quality. Because krill oil besides the omega-3 also contains high-quality phospholipid and the strong antioxidant astaxanthin, krill is better absorbed by the human body. Many therapists recommend krill oil to their clients.
Testa Vegan Krill Oil DHA + EPA is, in addition to a high daily dose of omega 3 fatty acids (with a daily intake of 2 capsules), also rich in phospholipids and astaxanthin. As a result, the oil is better absorbed by the body.
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 that enter or leave the cell have to pass through the membrane. A good condition of all our cell membranes is therefore essential for good health.
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.
