Schiff MegaRed contains oil from 100% pure Antarctic krill, tiny crustaceans that thrive in the frigid waters of the Antarctic. MegaRed provides an optimal combination of omega-3 fatty acids, phospholipids and powerful antioxidants including astaxanthin to support heart and joint health. Just one small, easy-to-swallow MegaRed softgel to take each day. Quality tested for purity. MegaRed Omega-3 Krill Oil contains omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA. Unlike fish oil, the omega-3 fatty acids in MegaRed Omega-3 Krill Oil are mainly absorbed and carried to the body's cells in phospholipid form. Phospholipids form the structural basis of cell membranes, so MegaRed phospholipids with omega-3 fatty acids are easily recognized, incorporated and utilized by the body. Importantly, because MegaRed omega-3's are carried in phospholipid form, there is no fishy aftertaste. MegaRed has been shown to significantly increase your Omega-3 index in just 30 days. The Omega-3 Index is a measure of the amount of omega-3 fatty acids in your body's cells. A higher Omega-3 index is associated with better cardiovascular health.
