The Virgin Krill Oil™ Story
Jedwards International is a wholesale supplier of bulk krill oil capsules. Harvested in the pure pristine waters of the Antarctic Ocean, Virgin Krill Oil™ is extracted from a tiny, shrimp-like, marine crustacean known as Euphausia Superba (Krill). Virgin Krill Oil™ is one of the cleanest virgin omega-3 supplements offered on the market today. Comprised of a unique complex of omega-3 fatty acids, Virgin Krill Oil™ is recognized as a potent and naturally stable omega-3 dietary supplement.
Unlike fish oil, the omega-3 in Virgin Krill Oil™ is found in the phospholipid form. The phospholipids found in Virgin Krill Oil™ also help to mitigate, the unpleasant reflux (“burp back”) and fishy aftertaste consumers often experience with standard fish oil supplements.
Sustainability and the environment:
Virgin Krill Oil™ is produced from krill harvested within strict guidelines established by the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) to ensure and promote the health and sustainability of the krill population in the Southern Ocean. The “precautionary” approach implemented by CCAMLR mitigates concerns consumers have regarding sustainability of krill as the established annual harvesting quota is less than 1% of the total estimated krill biomass (estimated up to 500 million metric tons). The krill biomass is in the range of two times that of the human biomass, making krill the single largest biomass in the world. The actual krill harvest varies from year to year with a typical season yielding approximately 150,000 tons, which is a marginal percentage (approx. 0.02%) of the total krill biomass.
The Astaxanthin found in Virgin Krill Oil™ is a powerful, naturally occurring antioxidant. Other omega-3 sources lack natural antioxidants of this stature, making them prone to oxidation and degradation. The vibrant red appearance of Virgin Krill Oil™ is a direct result of the natural Astaxanthin content.
