Ultra Red Krill Oil

Pure Krill Oil: Superior Omega-3

Ultra Red Krill Oil offers a superior source of Omega-3 with many important additional benefits, designed to meet the highest standards of quality, purity and effectiveness.

Ultra Red Krill Oil provides 500mg of pure Krill oil, a special source of Omega-3 with a high concentration of marine phospholipids so may be better utilised in the body than standard Omega-3 found in fish oil. Ultra Red Krill Oil provides essential fatty acids for the normal function of the heart, brain and vision all within an easier to swallow smaller capsule with no unpleasant fishy odour, taste or aftertaste.

As well as Omega-9 fatty acids, Ultra Red Krill provides Omega-3, a rich source of the essential fatty acids DHA (Docosahexaenoic Acid) and EPA (Eicosapentaenoic Acid).

EPA and DHA are classed as essential fatty acids because they cannot be made efficiently by the body and must be obtained through the diet.

• DHA contributes to the maintenance of normal vision and brain function1

• DHA and EPA contribute to the normal function of the heart2

Important: Ultra Red Krill contains only pure Krill oil, rather than Krill oil combined with ordinary fish oil as found in some products.

What are the benefits of Krill Oil over other Fish Oils?

Ultra Red Krill Oil

Ultra Red Krill Oil is a smaller soft gel capsule than most traditional Omega-3 supplements, and has no fishy odour or taste. Unlike the fatty acids provided by other sources of Omega-3, Ultra Red Krill Oil is not dependent on bile for digestion and disperses in water. This means Ultra Red Krill Oil is able to disperse in the small intestine not the stomach so there is no unpleasant fishy taste, burping, odour or reflux.

Krill Oil Omega-3 is also naturally low in toxicity and pollutant free compared to other sources of Omega-3.

  • ✓ High Concentration Phospholipids for superior Omega-3 absorption
  • ✓ High quality source of EPA and DHA
  • ✓ 100% natural Antarctic Krill oil
  • ✓ No fishy taste
  • ✓ No fishy odour
  • ✓ No reflux
  • ✓ Small capsule

With naturally present Marine Phospholipids

Ultra Red Krill OilThe Omega-3 in Ultra Red Krill Oil has been shown to have the same benefits as fish oil Omega-3 which supports normal heart and brain function, but with better efficiency due to the presence of phospholipids.

Research indicates that phospholipid bound Omega-3 fatty acids may have greater bioavailability for cell growth and functioning, compared with Omega-3 triglycerides3. Ultra Red Krill Oil takes the Omega-3 phospholipid form, rather than the Omega-3 triglyceride form found in fish and cod liver oils.

Phospholipids are key structural components of our cell membranes, which are involved in the transport of molecules across the cell membrane. Ultra Red Krill Oil provides Omega-3 in phospholipid form, mainly as phosphatidylcholine, which means it is more easily transported across cell membranes to where it is utilised.

Omega-3 phospholipids follow simpler digestion and distribution routes in the human body. Simpler digestion in the small intestine before absorption is one of the possible reasons for the greater uptake of Omega-3 phospholipids in the human body compared with standard Omega-3 triglycerides.

Ultra Red Krill Oil and the environment

Ultra Red Krill Oil is a pure, natural source of Omega-3 providing EPA and DHA as well as Astaxanthin. Harvested in the Antarctic, Krill Oil is pollutant free, with presence of natural Astaxanthin giving the oil a deep red colour.

The presence of Astaxanthin also helps to keep Krill oil stable without the need of additives, protecting the beneficial Omega-3 fatty acids from becoming rancid due to oxidisation. Consumers can feel assured that they are choosing the highest quality form of Omega-3.

Ultra Red Krill Oil

Ultra Red Krill Oil is sourced by Aker BioMarine who co-operate closely with WWF-Norway (World Wide Fund for Nature) to support work on sustainable Krill management.

In June 2010, Aker BioMarine's krill fishing operations received MSC certification as a sustainable fishery, making Aker the first MSC-certified krill fishery in the world.

Proprietary Eco-Harvesting technology uses a specially designed trawl system that singles out unwanted "by-catch" and releases it unharmed. Eco-Harvesting restricts environmental impact and prevents enzymatic degradation of the Krill oil, allowing for greater preservation of all key nutrients in the end products, and provides for complete utilization of the product without waste.

Ultra Red Krill Oil offers an alternative source of Omega-3 with additional benefits. Ultra Red Krill Oil has been shown to have the same benefits as fish oil Omega-3 with better efficiency due to the presence of phospholipids, and no fishy odour or reflux. Top

What are Omega-3 EPA and DHA fatty acids?

Omega-3 Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) and Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) are “essential” fatty acids because they cannot be made by the body efficiently and therefore must be obtained from the diet. Eating a diet rich in Omega-3 fatty acids or by taking a supplement such as Vitabiotics' Ultra Red Krill Oil, may help to safeguard the body's requirement for Omega-3 fatty acids. Top

How pure is Ultra Red Krill Oil?

Harvested in some of the world's cleanest waters, Krill oil is pollutant free with the naturally occurring Astaxanthin giving the oil a deep red colour.

Ultra Red Krill is 100% pure and unlike some Krill oils is not blended with ordinary fish oil. Top

When is Ultra Red Krill Oil recommended?

Ultra Red Krill Oil is recommended as a nutritional safeguard.

Difficulty swallowing tablets or capsules is fairly common - do you have any advice?

Difficulty in swallowing tablets is quite a common experience. Vitabiotics have researched this extensively, trying different methods, and hope that our tips will help you swallow tablets with ease.

The usual advice for those who have difficulty in swallowing tablets, is to break the tablets into 2-3 pieces, before swallowing with plenty of liquid. For capsules (which contain liquid), and in cases where people have more difficulty in swallowing tablets we recommend after chewing some food (e.g. banana), just before you swallow, pop the tablet into your mouth and swallow it together with the chewed food, followed by some liquid. The throat opens up wider automatically to swallow the chewed food and hence the tablet should go down with greater ease. Alternatively the tablets or capsules may be swallowed with thicker liquids such as yoghurts or smoothies. We hope these tips are of help. Top

"I’ve been taking Ultra Sage for all most a year. I would recommend it to anyone who is currently going through the menopause. ''Brilliant'' thank you."

Mrs Joanne Eaton, United Kingdom

"I decided to try Ultra Bilberry, Lutein and Zeaxanthin tablets (already aware that bilberries are good for your eyes) and see if they made any difference. I'm delighted to be able to say that there has been a distinct improvement. Thank you for an excellent product."

Miss Z , United Kingdom

Jemiah Umolu is a true up and coming football star of the future! At just nine years old, he is already signed by Arsenal FC to play in their Under 12 team and is rated one of their best in his age group. Jemiah is a convert to Vitabiotics and this is his father’s testimonial…
"Roughly eight weeks ago my son was registered injured by his football club, Arsenal FC. He was advised to have three to six months rest from all sport. Given he plays for a professional academy, he couldn't afford to take this amount of time off. A week later he started a course of Vitabiotics Jointace, Osteocare and Ultra Omega 3, and just three weeks later he was himself once again. He has and will remain taking Jointace and other Vitabiotics products to maintain healthy joints, teeth and bones as he is still growing."

Mr John Umolu, United Kingdom

"I cannot recommend Vitabiotics Ultra Krill Oil enough. I have been taken them for 6 months they are great. I have told my doctor about what they have done for me. I have never recommend any thing before but these I feel I must tell you"

Mrs Mary S, United Kingdom

"I cannot recommend these enough! They support so many functions of the body, and this is the perfect level (I take 2 each day). They are individually sealed for freshness, and the price is perfect for the amount provided."
