Twinlab's PMS Krill Oil contains the revolutionary, 100% pure, patented Neptune Krill Oil (NKO) with unique phospholipids not available in fish oils, NKO phospholipids contain substantially high quantities of EPA (100.5 mg) and DHA (60 mg). Unlike other sources of omega-3, this fatty acid profile aids recognition by the body based on its resemblance to the human brain's own phospholipids.
In addition to this cutting edge omega-3 ingredient, Twinlab's PMS Krill is unique because it contains soy isoflavones, an ingredient that has been known to help soothe PMS related headaches and emotional fluctuations. Research studies indicate that women consuming NKO experienced less abdominal swelling and discomfort during the menstruation cycle. PMS Krill Oil is shown to help relieve cramps, water-retention and mild mood changes associated with PMS.
What is Neptune Krill Oil (NKO)?
Using the patented process (US Patent No.:6,800,299 B1), Neptune Krill Oil is extracted from the zooplankton crustacean found in the Antarctic Ocean. The rapidly repopulating krill assure a plentiful, sustainable harvest of nature's finest omega-3 oils.
Twinlab's PMS Krill Oil is harvested, processed and tested to be free of PCB and toxic metals. Also, due to the fact that the omega-3 in NKO has superior antioxidant activity, there will be no fishy "repeats" (burp-ups).
Why Twinlab PMS Krill Oil?
Efficacy - Contains a unique and substantial offering of EPA (100.5 mg) and DHA (60 mg), the two most commonly deficient polyunsaturated fatty acids in the typical diet, thus being more efficacious and of higher value. The NKO fatty acid profile resembles that of a human brain's own phospholipids, making it easier to be recognized by the body.
Uniqueness - Consists of unique marine flavonoids which are not found in other non-plant sources. These natural marine flavonoids facilitate bioavailability of antioxidants in the product.
Superiority - Possesses proven, superior antioxidants such as vitamin A, E, esterified astaxanthin and marine flavonoids. Laboratory testing shows that the antioxidant activity in NKO is 48 times greater than fish oils tested. NKO had an antioxidant activity (ORAC lipoFL) of 378 compared to tested fish oils, which only had 8. ORAC is a bio-analytical test that evaluates antioxidant activity against harmful radicals.
