Suggested Use: 2 softgels daily with breakfast for one month and one softgel thereafter or as directed by a health care professional.
Naturally contains a highly bioavailable essential fatty acid–phospholipid complex and antioxidants, providing optimal support for menstrual comfort, cardiovascular function and cognitive, joint and skin health.
What Is It?
Pure Encapsulations Krill-plex is derived from Antarctic
krill, a zooplankton crustacean offering a naturally
unique balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids,
phospholipids and antioxidants, including vitamins A
and E and astaxanthin. Specific to krill oil is an
omega-phospholipid complex that is rich in eicosapentanoic
acid (EPA) and docosahexanoic acid (DHA).
Carefully preserved by a distinct cold extraction process,
this novel structure consists of EPA and DHA as two
fatty acid side chains on the phospholipid molecule.
Additionally, an astaxanthin ester is attached to the EPA,
providing an intricately bonded molecule that allows for
direct delivery of these nutrients into the cell nucleus,
and most importantly, the mitochondria. This unique
highly bioavailable complex provides optimal support
for menstrual comfort, cardiovascular function and
cognitive, joint and skin health.*
Uses For Krill-plex
Cognitive Support: Phosphatidylcholine, a key source of
choline, phosphatidylethanolamine and phosphatidylinositol
comprise the phospholipid profile. Furthermore, the
phospholipid-fatty acid profile closely resembles that of
human brain phospholipids. As a result, this complex
easily transverses the blood brain barrier, enriches brain
neural tissue and potentially provides cognitive support.*
Menstrual Comfort: Research indicates that omega-3 fatty
acids may provide menstruation-related emotional and
physical support by helping to mediate healthy hormone,
prostaglandin, and neurotransmitter function. A double
blind, randomized clinical trial investigated the effects
of women supplementing with krill oil at the beginning
of their menstrual cycles. Reports suggest that krill oil
provided statistically significant support for physical and
emotional well being and was well tolerated. Researchers
also indicated that krill oil may be supportive of mental
alertness, learning capacity, and daily endurance.*
Cardiovascular Function: Krill oil provides an ideal essential
fatty acid balance for healthy cardiovascular and platelet
function, in part by maintaining healthy prostaglandin
function. A prospective phase II randomized, double blind,
clinical trial suggested that krill oil helps support healthy
lipid, triglyceride and glucose metabolism.*
Joint Function: A randomized, double blind, placebocontrolled
study involving ninety individuals suggests
that krill oil promotes a healthy inflammatory response
and joint comfort. Furthermore, results showed statistically
significant support for joint flexibility and function.*
Skin Health: As an essential fatty acid, phospholipid
and antioxidant complex, krill oil has unique skin health
support potential. A randomized, controlled pre-clinical
trial investigated the effects of krill oil on skin health and
reported that it supports the body’s natural defenses
against the sun and environment.*
What Is The Source?
Krill oil is derived from Antarctic krill (shellfish), Euphausia
superba and typically contains 100 i.u. vitamin A (all
trans retinol) (naturally occurring) and 0.5 i.u. vitamin E
The krill oil in Krill-plex is NKO™, which is a registered
trademark of Neptune Technologies & Bioresources, Inc.
Pure Encapsulations recommends 2 softgels daily with
breakfast for one month and one softgel thereafter or
as directed by a health care professional.

fish oils, including burping, gastrointestinal upset or
indigestion, nausea, diarrhea or abdominal bloating. If
pregnant or lactating, consult your physician before taking
Are There Any Potential Drug Interactions?
