Omega 3 Foods - Krill is a Super Food
Omega 3 Foods Krill are tiny shrimp like creatures that live in the Ocean. I know that most people do not think of Krill as food. Omega 3 Foods - Krill is food in Japan and people are trying to get us Americans to catch on. It has been harvested since the 1800’s for a food source for humans and domesticated animals. I think it’s just a matter of time before we are eating Krill like hamburgers. It is just too healthy and too abundant a food. Larger Antarctic animals eat the little shrimps. Seals, whales, seabirds and squid depend on Krill one way or another.
Renewable Omega 3 Foods Source
Krill has quite a few advantages over other Foods High in Omega 3. I think the most important is that it is a Renewable Omega-3 Food Source. Krill and plankton make up the largest biomass on earth and is one of the easiest food sources to renew. No risk exists of over harvesting and causing them to disappear. This is a very important fact.
High in Omega 3
Krill has been blessed with one of the Great Omega-3 Foods. It is full off DHA and EPA. The “Good Fats”. These are the Omega3 that is readily used by your body. . Krill carries Omega 3 in the form of phospholipids – these little packages carry the fatty acids directly to your cells. The absorption rate is higher. So you get all the benefits of Omega-3 plus one very big thing.
The little miracle food is jam packed with Antioxidants. The antioxidant power of Krill is amazing. It is 300 times more power full then Vitamin E and Vitamin A. It has the following Antioxidants.
- Vitamin A

Since the Krill is so small and on the bottom of the food chain. You do not have to worry about high levels of mercury and other heavy metals. That is great news.
This is a super food and you will probably be hearing a lot about it in the near future. While researching I have read that it makes a difference what kind you get. You should try and look for Neptune Krill. I will have a link to my Krill Oil page which will have suggestions on where to get the good Krill oil. If I find anyone selling the Krill burger or the Krill cake I’ll also let you know. It better not be fried – that is all I am saying.
