Krill oil is derived from Antarctic Krill (Euphausia Superba), which is an abundant source of omega 3 essential fatty acids. Krill are tiny, red marine creatures similar in appearance to prawns, but much smaller in size. Krill accumulate omega 3 by feeding on omega 3 rich microscopic algae. This alga also provides krill with a robust source of the antioxidant astaxanthin, which is responsible for its distinct red colour.
