What Is It?
UltraKrill+D is an odorless, enhanced potency krill/ fish oil blend combined with vitamin D3. It provides 588 mg phospholipids, 210 mg EPA and 126 mg DHA per serving. EPA and DHA bound to phospholipids, as found naturally in krill, allows for increased bioavailability of EPA and DHA, since phospholipids provide enhanced transport of fatty acids into cells. This efficiency means less EPA and DHA are required per serving to provide omega-3 health benefits.*
UltraKrill+D provides a powerful, activated omega-3 blend by offering the following key distinctions:
• EPA/DHA bound to phospholipids
• EPA/DHA bound to triglycerides
• 588 mg phospholipids per serving
• 2.1 mg astaxanthin per serving for enhanced omega-3 stability*
• Vitamin D3 for enhanced inflammation balance support*
• Odorless, nitrogen-preserved Caplique™ Capsules
Uses For UltraKrill+D
Cognitive Support: The phospholipid-fatty acid profile of krill oil closely resembles that of human brain phospholipids. As a result, this complex is able to transverse the blood brain barrier, enriching brain neural tissue and providing potential cognitive support.*
Cardiovascular Function: UltraKrill+D provides essential fatty acids to support healthy cardiovascular and platelet function, in part by maintaining healthy prostaglandin function. Numerous randomized, double blind, clinical trials indicate that omega-3 essential fatty acids support healthy lipid, triglyceride and glucose metabolism. Vitamin D adds synergistic support for healthy arterial function, vascular tone, and inflammation balance.*
Joint Function: Research suggests that omega-3 fatty acids promote a healthy inflammatory response, joint flexibility and comfort.*
Skin Health: UltraKrill+D offers unique skin health support with essential fatty acids, phospholipids and astaxanthin. Research suggests that it supports the body’s natural defenses against the sun and environment.*
What Is The Source?
Omega-3 fatty acids are derived from Antarctic krill (shellfish), Euphausia superba, sardines and anchovies. This krill oil blend is obtained from a sustainable and eco-friendly supply chain aimed to maintain the conservation of marine living resources by sourcing its krill biomass only from CCAMLR† Member monitored vessels and facilities. Vitamin D3 is derived from the cholesterol in lanolin, the fat found in wool. Fish gelatin Caplique™ Capsules are derived from tilapia. †CCAMLR is the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources and the only internationally- recognized body, whose member states monitor Antarctic-krill harvesting to ensure a healthy eco-system in that region.
Pure Encapsulations recommends 2 Caplique™ Capsules per day, with a meal.
Are There Any Potential Side Effects Or Precautions?
If pregnant or lactating, consult your physician before taking this product. Theoretically, krill oil may have side effects similar to fish oils, including burping, gastrointestinal upset or indigestion, nausea, diarrhea or abdominal bloating. It is recommended that individuals taking more than 2,000 i.u. vitamin D per day have their blood levels monitored. Large doses of vitamin D can cause hypercalcemia, signs include headache, weakness, nausea, vomiting, and constipation. Individuals with hyperparathyroidism or kidney disease are at particular risk. Consult your physician for more information.
Are There Any Potential Drug Interactions?
Krill oil may be contra-indicated with blood thinning medications. Vitamin D may result in hypercalcemia in certain individuals taking digoxin or thiazide diuretics. Consult your physician for more information.
