Seeking Health Optimal Krill Oil is a dietary supplement providing 880 milligrams of optimally extracted krill oil per portion with additional natural astaxanthin from algae extract. It is an excellent option for people looking for a complementary element for their regular preventive supplementation.
The product contains:
Krill oil – concentrated fat extracted from a species of Euphuaisiacea, more commonly known as krill. In this product, it was obtained through the method of cold water extraction, which guarantees that the most important features of the fat fraction were reserved, as low temperature helps to eliminate oxidative processes in fat and its degradation.
The uniqueness of krill oil consists in the type of fatty acid binding. While in regular products supplying healthy fat fractions, the acids are present mainly in the form of triglycerides, in krill oil they are found in the form of phospholipids and in amounts reaching up to 50% of all fat, which has a beneficial effect on its bioactivity and assimilation kinetics. It provides a large amount of eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). The krill oil in itself also contains other bioactive compounds, mainly astaxanthin and vitamin E.
Research demonstrates that krill oil is the most absorbable form of fat fractions compared with fish oils and its ethylated esters (33% better assimilability than typical fish oil and 68% higher than ethyl esters).
The neuroprotective properties of krill oil are established by its content of DHAs bound in the form of phospholipids. Research suggests visible antioxidant properties regarding the brain. It is worth mentioning that the effect is considered to be more obvious than in the case of fish oil.
Krill oil also exhibits other positive properties regarding the nervous system. It supports thought and cognitive processes thanks to the synergic activity of DHA, EPA, phosphatidylcholine, and astaxanthin, and is able to reduce menstrual pain, in which case krill oil was again proven to be more efficient than fish oil. The latter only reduces physical menstrual pain, while krill oil also affects neurological symptoms, such as stress. The mechanism of its activity is based on competing with arachidonic acid, which, in turn, reduces the production of pro-inflammatory prostaglandins.
Krill oil can also be applied in supporting the circulatory system. Preventive supplementation can fight excessive ventricular hypertrophy, that is the thickening of the lower chamber of the heart. It also improves the general lipid profile of the blood: it increases the level of HDL while reducing the levels of LDL, total cholesterol and triglycerides.
Krill oil supplementation has also been shown to have a positive effect in the case of arthritis. Interventional use of the oil resulted in an improvement of the markers connected with the disease (including the WOMAC index).
Krill fats are also connected with an improvement of the health of the digestive system. Its results are reduced lipogenesis in the liver and better protection against liver inflammation.
Astaxanthin is a component that complements the effective activity of krill oil in this product. It exhibits outstanding antioxidant properties and supports natural antioxidant processes in the organism, as it stimulates the proteins that participate in the proliferation of precursor nerve cells, mainly Rex1. It also increases the accumulation of DAF-16, whose feedback mechanism inhibits the signalling of insulin/IFG, which is potentially responsible for cell aging.
Astaxanthin has a positive effect on the cardiovascular system by reducing blood pressure, regulating nitric oxide metabolism, preventing gut epithelial tissue disorders, and improving the general lipid profile of the organism.
It has also been demonstrated to improve the mechanisms connected with glucose metabolism, that is reducing insulin resistance and blood sugar levels. It can be of great significance in reducing diabetes-induced kidney degradation.
Astaxanthin supplementation supports weight reduction as well. It increases the production of adiponectin, regulates the process of fat beta-oxidation by protecting the enzyme CPT-1, which is crucial in that process, and increases the intensity of fat oxidation itself. It also supports exercise capacity and reduces muscle damage after workout, as it reduces the levels of creatine kinase and alanine aminotranferase markers.
To sum up, Seeking Health Optimal Krill Oil will meet the requirements of every person seeking for a complex formula supplementing the diet with healthy fats. It will prove particularly helpful in the case of people who want to focus on preventive healthcare of the circulatory and nervous systems. The addition of astaxanthin complements the health-improving properties of krill oil, giving the product powerful antioxidant properties.
It is recommended to take the capsules with a meal in order to avoid an upset stomach. In the case of interventional use (for example to improve cognitive functions, when increased intellectual activity is required, in the case of seasonal colds, or to enhance the lipid profile), the dosage can be increased to 3 capsules a day.

Calories are the conventional name of the unit expressing the energy value of food, the demand and energy expenditure in human body, which in fact is 1 kilocalorie (1 kcal). 1 kilocalorie is the amount of thermal energy required to heat 1 g of water and 1 degree Celsius. The SI unit of thermal energy is 1 joule (1J), equal to approximately 4,185 kcal.
The energy value is determined by the chemical composition of the food product, by means of the so-called. physiological equivalents. Most often Atwater equivalent is used: ratio for protein 4 kcal / g, for carbohydrates 4kcal / g, and for fat - 9kcal / g.
The energy value carried out with the so-called. "Caloric bomb" is equivalent to the physical energy, amounting to 4.1 kcal per 1 g carbohydrate to 5.65 kcal per 1 g protein, 9.45 kcal per 1 g of fat.
Nutritional value, determines the suitability of a food product for realizing life functions of human, the higher it is - the higher bioavailability and lower quantity for consumption for obtaining the effects.
Fat is an essential nutrient plant and animal organisms. Because of the nutritional value and composition of fats are divided into: saturated (mono-saturated and multi-saturated fatty acids) and unsaturated fatty acids (including essential fatty acids - EFA). The group of lipids include lipids (triacylglycerols, waxes), complex fats (glycolipids, phospholipids), sterols and isoprenoids. Saturated fatty acids is a group of fatty acids having different carbon chain lengths, in which except for the carboxyl group, each of the carbon atoms is bound by a single bond. May adversely affect the lipid profile, so they can be used in limited quantities. Fats are a concentrated source of energy, with different flavours, facilitating the consumption and swallowing of food. They have building functions (part of cell membranes and co-create the white matter of the brain). EFAs are precursors of tissue hormones and biologically active compounds. The unsaturated fatty acids include fatty acids from the group Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9 (the last digit indicates, on which, counting of the end of the chain, there is a double bond in the appropriate carbon chain. The essential fatty acids include: acids, medium-Omega-3 [n-3 ] included in EFAs [essential fatty acids], and long chain (eicosapentaenoic acid [EPA] and docosahexaenoic acid [DHA]) Omega-6 and Omega-9. the number indicates that the last double bond in the carbon chain is on the third from the end carbon atom. The acids from the omega 3 group are essential components of cell membranes, they are precursors of eicosanoids and biological activators. They must be combined with ingestion in suitable proportions of Omega-6 acids.
Dosage: Depending on demand and applied diet. It is generally accepted that fats should constitute 20-30% of the energy (calorie) of meals daily.
AstaREAL is an antioxidant carotene, it influences muscle endurance and recovery processes of the body, having a beneficial effect on insulin sensitivity. Used as a component of the patented formulation, containing astaxanthin, β-carotene, lutein, and xanthine. Astaxanthin is a colour (e.g.,. it colours red meat of salmon and boiled crustaceans), it may be delivered to the body with sea food (algae, shrimp, krill, some fish), and yeast.
AstaREAL is a component of dietary supplements that affect the biological renewal of an organism, and of fat burners.
Astaxanthin - currently it is considered the strongest antioxidant (according to the research, it is much stronger than vitamin C or beta-carotene), which has a detoxicating effect on the organism. This substance is therefore incredibly important in the process of elimination of free radicals and detoxification.
As a compound from the group of carotenoids, it conditions the process of proper vision, however, it is not used as a building block of retinol (derivative of vitamin A) and it may fulfill its functions in the whole organism, where it is also transported. It was proven that astaxanthin helps to inhibit the creation of pathological lesions in the eye retina, therefore introducing it do a diet may even cause vision improvement.
Astaxanthin also decreases blood pressure, thanks to which the risk of developing circulatory system disorders is lower. Additionally, it demonstrates protective effect on neurons, which may be important in the future in the Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s disease.
This carotenoid is also friendly to diabetics, as thanks to antioxidant properties it inhibits oxidation of LDL cholesterol and makes pancreatic cells more sensitive to insulin.
