Puraz Krill Oil
The natural powerhouse of omega-3s and antioxidants
Krill Oil is the natural powerhouse of omega-3s and antioxidants. Many times more potent than fish oil, it supports cardiovascular, joint and brain health while protecting cells against free radical damage.
Puraz Krill has been shown to exceed its stated quantities of Omega-3, EPA & DHA with zero rancidity.

Introducing Puraz Krill Oil
Deep in the Antarctic Ocean, tiny krill feed on phytoplankton and in turn provide vital nutrients to larger fish. Krill is an abundant, highly renewable food source with high nutritional value and a variety of compounds essential to human health.
Puraz Krill Oil is a very powerful, highly absorbable source of omega-3. While omega-3 is also available from regular fish oil, Puraz Krill Oil is stronger and absorbed much faster. It's also extremely rich in astaxanthin, a natural antioxidant that protects human cells against free radical damage. The vibrant red colour you see in Puraz Krill Oil indicates its high astaxanthin content.
Benefits from taking Puraz Krill Oil:
- Supports heart & cardiovascular system. Puraz Krill oil’s phospholipids, rich in omega-3 fatty acids, are readily available and absorbed to help support cardiovascular health.
- Supports joint health and joint mobility.

- Contains astaxanthin, a powerful, naturally occurring antioxidant which protects human cells against free radical damage.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Krill oil is rich in essential omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and docosahexaenoic (DHA) which are among the most researched nutrients in the world and are well known for their many benefits to maintaining good health.
Today the scientific consensus is so strong that health policy makers worldwide, including the World Health Organization (WHO), all agree that omega-3s are essential for maintaining health.
'Essential' fatty acids mean that the body cannot produce these 'good-for-us' fats, hence they must be consumed from diet or supplements. Benefits attributed to omega-3 include support for cardiovascular health and joint mobility. Support for brain and central nervous system development, mental clarity and focus and skin health are additional benefits.
Unlike fish oil where the fatty acids are bound in the triglyceride form, in krill oil they are bound in a phospholipid structure which the body instantly recognises and thus takes up the contents immediately at a high absorption rate.
Krill oil naturally contains various potent antioxidants, including vitamin A and E and astaxanthin. Astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant that slows or eliminates the process of oxidation in the human body and helps protect human cells against free radical damage.
Unlike many other antioxidants, astaxanthin crosses the blood-brain barrier, where it could theoretically help protect the eye, brain and central nervous system from free radical damage. Astaxanthin is derived from the algae that the krill eat. This algae produces the red astaxanthin that give krill, lobster and shrimp their red colour.
Frequently Asked Questions
What are Krill?
Krill (Euphausia superba) are tiny shrimp-like crustaceans found in the Antarctic Ocean.
Does Puraz Krill Oil contain Omega-3 DHA/EPA?
Yes. Puraz Krill Oil naturally contains omega-3 DHA/EPA fatty acids, phospholipids and natural antioxidants like astaxanthin, which gives its vibrant red colour.
What is Puraz Krill Oil used for?
It supports the heart & cardiovascular system, joint health & mobility, healthy brain function, antioxidant protection and helps prevent free-radical damage.
How is krill oil different from fish oil?
One of the main differences between krill oil and fish oil, is that krill oil naturally contains phospholipids in addition to the omega-3’s. These phospholipids are responsible for krill oil’s bio efficiency, helping to facilitate the uptake of the omega-3s into the cells. Another difference is that krill oil contains natural antioxidants like astaxanthin.
I have noticed the amounts of DHA & EPA are lower in krill oil than fish oil – am I getting the same benefits?
Yes. Because of krill oil’s unique biochemical composition the DHA and EPA are better absorbed and utilized in the human body than regular fish oil. Studies have shown that krill oil provides superior cardiovascular benefits at half the daily dosage of fish oil.
Is Puraz Krill Oil gluten free?
Puraz Krill Oil is gluten free. However the capsules may come into contact with traces of gluten from other products when manufactured.
Can people who are allergic to shellfish take krill oil?
No. Puraz Krill Oil is derived from krill which are a form of crustaceans; therefore this product is not to be taken by those with shellfish allergies.
Is Puraz Krill Oil tested for heavy metals?
Krill is caught from the pristine waters of Antarctica and only eat at the lowest end of the food chain. They are therefore less infused with metals that are normally found in larger marine life. Even so, Puraz Krill Oil has been tested and is free from any heavy metals, mercury, dioxins and pesticides.
Is the krill used for Puraz Krill Oil farmed or natural?
Puraz Krill Oil is from a natural source. The krill is harvested from the pristine waters of the Antarctic via a sustainable process.
Are we depleting the ocean of whale food?
No. Puraz Krill Oil only uses krill harvested from the southern Antarctic Ocean which is under strict regulation. In 1982, krill nations bordering the Antarctic Ocean formed a treaty organisation; the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR) to ensure that krill were being harvested in a sustainable way.
Do I have to take it with food?
This is not essential, but studies do show better absorption when taken with food.
Can I take while pregnant?
No. Do not take Puraz Krill Oil during pregnancy or lactation, unless otherwise advised by your doctor.
Is krill oil safe and can I take with medication?
Krill oil is generally very safe and has no known adverse effects, however, everyone is different and so we strongly encourage anyone with a medical condition or taking medications to consult with their licensed health care provider to ensure this product is right for them.

Krill Oil Testimonials
"I just wanted to send a quick email regarding your krill oil capsules. I decided to try them as I have a family history of heart disease and I am also type 2 diabetic, so I thought they might at least be good as part of a 'maintenance plan'. I have been taking them for about a week now and I am so happy with the difference they have made for me already. For several years I've suffered badly from restless leg syndrome, to the point where it would keep me from sleeping 6 nights a week! I would have to say my jumpy nerves have almost disappeared by the end of my first week taking your krill oil. Even my hubby commented last night how much better I am as I disturbed him a lot jumping and twitching, even in my sleep. I am falling asleep so much easier and staying asleep. This is HUGE for me! So thank you for a fabulous product, I take them every day, excited about what other benefits I will see over time. I am one very happy customer already!!!"
