Antarctic Treasure

Killer whale in the Antarctic


The most hostile environment in the world protects many desirable things that would have been plundered years ago if man was able to beat the harsh environment to reach them. It is one of the few remaining areas on our planet that guards its secrets so well that we are not even certain what lies beneath the ice sheet that covers all but 2.4 percent of Antarctica's 14 million square kilometers.

At its thickest point the ice sheet is 4,776 meters deep and averages 2, 160 meters thick. This is 90 percent of all the world's ice and it is 70 percent of all the world's fresh water.

There are lots of penguins, whales, seals, krill (the main food for whales), and even fish in Antarctica's waters, but there are no land mammals and, as far as scientists know, no native peoples.

It is to Krill that we turn our attention, and the benefits contained therein for us humans.

Antarctic Krill oil, though not yet widely known or popular, contains a highly nutritious blend of omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and choline.  Within a few years, krill oil will likely become a very popular supplement or food additive.

First, krill oil contains omega-3 fatty acids, among the most heavily researched supplemental nutrition substance in the world.  The omega-3 fatty acids found in pure krill oil are predominantly EPA and DHA—the same fatty acids found in cold water fish such as salmon, mackerel, herring, and sardines

Second, Krill is one food source that has not been over fished, sadly, because of the reduction in whale numbers, Krill has actually become more numerous, and because it is way down the food chain it is purer by far than many other sources of Omega 3.

Krill Oil is now becoming available on leading Supplement websites such as www.selecthealthy.com so maybe it’s time to try this new pure nutritional supplement for yourself.
