Increase omega-3 index
Omega-3 index is a measure of the amount of EPA and DHA in the blood, specifically the red blood cell membranes. A high omega-3 index indicates an excellent state of health and well-being, while a low omega-3 index suggests a higher risk of sudden cardiac death.
In a clinical trial, a total of 300 volunteers with “borderline high” or “high” blood triglyceride levels were divided into 5 groups. Their diets were supplemented with Superba krill oil at either 0.5, 1, 2 or 4 g per day or placebo (olive oil) for 12 weeks. Compared to placebo group, those administered with krill oil had a statistically significant 10% reduction in serum triglycerides and remarkable improvements in omega-3 index. Subjects taking 4 g of krill oil daily increased their omega-3 index from 3.7% to 6.3%.
In an unpublished study, health volunteers were orally administered either 2 g of Superba krill oil or 2g of omega-3-enriched fish oil for 8 weeks. Results showed that krill oil increased the omega-3 index significantly more than fish oil after 8 weeks of supplementation. After dose adjustment between the two groups, krill oil increased the omega-3 index by about 70% more than fish oil at the end of the study.
Krill oil contains omega-3 fatty acids, particularly EPA and DHA that are available in phospholipid structure, allowing it to be readily absorbed by the body. It is also more efficient in supporting healthy blood lipid profile and heart health compared with conventional fish oil.
Krill oil helps to promote joint health and flexibility by reducing plasma C-reactive protein, a key marker of joint inflammation.
Krill oil is rich in omega-3 and phospholipids which are vital nutrients that support healthy cognitive functions especially in promoting better concentration and focus.
Krill oil provides antidepressant-like effects. The synergy of various components in krill oil, such as omega-3 phospholipids and astaxanthin plays a role in combating depression.
One way of measuring the state of depression in rodents is the Forced Swimming Test (FST). The immobility time (passive floating in water) is a measure of depression-like behaviour (learned helplessness). The group which was given krill oil showed decrease in the duration of immobility compared to control group.
Krill oil improves ADHD symptoms
An unpublished data showed that krill oil helped improve the behaviour and daily function capacity in children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). ADHD is a neurodevelopmental psychiatric disorder that makes it difficult for a person to pay attention and control impulsive behaviours.
Krill oil helps to relieve physical and emotional symptoms associated with women’s menstrual cycle.
Krill oil helps reduce liver triglyceride (fat). These effects were associated with a lower concentration of anandamide (AEA) in the liver, which in turn was associated with lower levels of arachidonic acid in membrane phospholipids. AEA is the endocannabinoid responsible for non-alcoholic liver triglyceride (fat) deposition in rodents. These results suggest that beneficial effects of krill oil are the result of changes in membrane fatty acid composition.
Krill oil helps soothe dry eye symptoms by reducing OSDI score*, ocular bulbar redness (eye redness)and proinflammatory cytokines (IL-17A).
*The Ocular Surface Disease Index (OSDI) is a 12-item scale for the assessment of symptoms related to dry eye disease and their effect on vision, with higher scores representing greater disability.
Krill oil reduces intestinal inflammation by weakening adhesion and invasion of harmful bacteria (e.g. E. coli) in intestinal lining cells and reducing proinflammatory cytokines (TNFα).
Research conducted on Superba krill oil demonstrated significant improvements in skin hydration and elasticity, which may improve skin smoothness and softness.
In a 4-week, randomised, double-blind, controlled, parallel clinical trial, 63 men and women (35 – 64 years old) with waist circumference of 102 cm or greater (men) or 88 cm or greater (women) were included. Overweight (OW) and obese (OB) subjects have increased levels of endocannabinoids than normal weight (norm) subjects. Over-activation of endocannabinoid system increases food intake and promotes weight gain. In this study, intake of 2 g per day of krill oil was able to significantly reduce 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG), which is an endocannabinoid in obese subjects.
Krill oil significantly reduced circulating anandamide (AEA) and 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG) in obese subjects. An increase of AEA and 2-AG was associated with weight gain. Circulating 2-AG levels in obese individuals strongly correlated with visceral adipose tissue, high triglyceride levels, low HDL-cholesterol levels and indices of insulin resistance.
Cachexia is a complex syndrome associated with an underlying illness that results in extreme loss in weight and body fat. This syndrome affects people in the late stages of serious diseases like cancer and cannot be reversed nutritionally. This is characterised as anorexia, muscle wasting and lipid profile disorder.
In an unpublished study, krill oil was shown to improve blood lipids in advanced cancer patients with cachexia. They were shown to have reduced triglyceride (TG), increased HDL (good) cholesterol and reduced LDL (bad) cholesterol levels. Furthermore, their inflammation markers were reduced and endocannabinoid system parameters, normalized. Endocannabinoids are molecules made by the body and they are responsible for overall body weight control.
Sport and Performance
Choline plays a crucial role in nerve signaling. As intensive exercise could burden cellular function and escalates the stress on the muscles and joints to perform maximally, having sufficient choline in the body allows sufficient amounts of neurotransmitters to be generated to support muscle function. Research has shown a decrease in the plasma choline level of about 40% in marathon runners could impact their exercise performance (Europ. J. Appl. Physiol. 67: 87–91 (1993)). This impact could be further aggravated if choline levels are already low in the first place. PERFECT KRILL EX contains choline which makes it beneficial in supporting muscle function.
In addition, krill oil also helps to improve immune function in sports persons. Krill oil significantly increases PBMC IL-2 production and NK cell cytotoxic activity 3 hours post-exercise compared to placebo, this indicates that krill oil is able to improve immune function in the recovery period after exercise. This would benefit those who engage in intense exercise.

PERFECT KRILL EX is the enhanced formula of Perfect Krill. The krill oil in PERFECT KRILL EX is extracted Using proprietary & exclusive technology to extract t, resulting in higher phospholipids and choline content. Phospholipids are a major structural component of all cell membranes to help maintain their strength, integrity and flexibility. In addition, phospholipids are also responsible for transporting long chain omega-3s EPA and DHA efficiently and directly into every cell of the body and across the blood brain barrier. Choline is vital for cell structure, function and signaling and contributes to cardiovascular, brain and liver health. Yet, 90% of the population are not managed to achieve an adequate daily intake of choline. Krill oil remains a good option to help increase body’s choline levels. Choline in krill oil is found in the form of phosphatidylcholine (PC), which has been shown to be 12X better than a choline salt in raising blood choline levels.
PERFECT KRILL EX is highly recommended for the following individuals:
• Heart health concern, unhealthy blood glucose or lipid profile
• Fatty liver concerns
• Poor cognitive function (e.g. memory) or emotional health
• Dry, inflamed eyes or high eye pressure
• Joint discomfort
• Poor lung health or asthma
• Poor intestinal health or inflamed intestines
• Sunburn, excessive sun exposure or dry & rough skin
• Women coping with physical and emotional symptoms associated with women’s cycle
• Overweight or obese
• Athletes or physically active
• Poor sleep quality
PERFECT KRILL EX’s phospolipids and advanced delivery system allows it to be more easily absorbed compared with other omega-3 sources. It is up to 2.5 times better in bioavailability than fish oil and yields a ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) value of 47 times higher than fish oil due to the presence of super antioxidant, astaxanthin. This also prevents it from oxidizing or becoming rancid. Sourced from the deep oceans in the Antartica, PERFECT KRILL EX ensures quality oil with minimal toxins and heavy metals. Its unique patented extraction process also makes it better in bioavailability compared with other krill oils in the market.
Pure krill oil supplements ensures that our body is able to better absorb and utilise its omega-3 content. However, there are some supplements that contain a mixture of fish and krill oil. Although this will allow the omega-3 content to be higher than pure krill oil, the absorbability may differ due to the different structure of the different omega-3 content. Choose trusted sources that have been widely supported by patents and clinical trials.
Scientific tests indicate that even though PERFECT KRILL EX contains less DHA and EPA than fish oil, it is more bioavailable and effective due to its phospholipid content. Phospholipids assist in the uptake of the krill oil’s DHA and EPA into body cells and tissues.
There are no known side effects associated with the daily consumption of PERFECT KRILL EX when taken as directed, except if one is allergic to shellfish. However, dietary supplements are not a substitute for a healthy diet and lifestyle. It is recommended for long-term consumption for optimal health.
