levels.

Phospholipids
The “secret” ingredient to krill oil’s superior absorption and bioavailability. Unlike fish oil’s triglycerides, the phospholipids in krill oil allow us to do more with less.

Instead of taking multiple, big fish oil capsules…you can take one Artic Flex soft gel and experience the bone and joint supporting nutrients more effectively and efficiently!

Astaxanthin
An antioxidant demonstrated to be 6,000x more potent than vitamin C, astaxanthin is found naturally in krill oil thanks to their hearty consumption of algae in the Southern Antarctic Ocean.

With regards to your joints, astaxanthin combats the cell-damaging free radicals and reduces oxidative stress.

Vitamin D
Artic Flex doctors chose to include Vitamin D in the formulation due to the evidence that demonstrates its vital role in bone and joint health.

Specifically, it helps our bones absorb calcium making them stronger!

Zinc
A mineral that’s absolutely essential to our health and is found in every tissue in our bodies, zinc supports bone maintenance and growth as well as collagen synthesis.

The crazy part: our bodies can’t produce zinc on their own, so the only way we get it is by what we eat!

Digestion
Digestion is the process of breaking down food into smaller pieces that our body can use, ultimately, on a cellular level.

Fun fact: Fishy burps are a sign that your body hasn’t broken down fish oil or krill oil well enough.

Absorption
Once food is broken down, it’s time to absorb those little nutrients.

This is a crucial step because if nutrients aren’t absorbed into the small intestine and bloodstream…they are passed down the “porcelain express!”

Bioavailability
People tend to use absorption and bioavailability interchangeably but, the truth is, bioavailability is the most important factor in what makes a supplement…well, work!

Foods and supplements with high bioavailability means that its nutrients are not only absorbed, they are actually used by your cells. Learn more here.

Size / Daily Servings
Soft gel size and daily serving sizes between brands can vary quite a bit depending on the efficiency of the fish or krill oil.

If a brand has big horse pills and/or multiple servings per day, this is a hint that it’s not as digestible, absorbable, and/or bioavailable as it could be!
