- Not all omega-3s are the same: Krill omega-3s are in phospholipid form for more effective delivery to the body's cells. The Omega-3 fatty acids known as EPA and DHA are important for optimal heart, brain, eye, joint, and skin health.
- Omega-3 Support: Made with antarctic Krill, a new species of Krill, formulated here in the United States and clinically proven to increase omega-3 fatty acid levels in the body*.
- Less Krill smell with No Aftertaste: The new Superba2 has substantially reduced the Krill smell. The phospholipid-bound omega-3 fatty acids are water dispersible, making them easier to digest than fish oil. Goodbye, gross, fishy aftertaste!
- Sustainable & Traceable: Superba Krill is sustainably harvested and 100% traceable from sea to shelf. Certified by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) and IKOS 5 star certified Krill Oil.

Youth Principles Krill Oil + Omega 3’s with Superba is a unique dietary supplement that combines authentic Antarctic krill oil complex with high-potency fish omega-3 fatty acids. The superior bioactivity of krill phospholipids carrying omega-3 DHA (DocosaHexaenoic Acid) and EPA (EicosaPentaenoic Acid) along with astaxanthin is augmented by DHA and EPA from fish. These are vital lipid nutrients, performed an integral building block for the cell membranes that manage life’s most important processes. The high potency and proven clinical benefits of these nutrients make this supplement a must addition to a personalized health program.
Antarctic Krill (Euphausia Superba) are shrimp-like creatures that thrive in frigid seas. Their ample content of DHA and EPA, both of which are highly fluid molecules, keeps their cells fluid at temperatures far below freezing, allowing them to survive, feed and reproduce. DHA and EPA are similarly important to cold-water fish. In 2004 the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted a qualified health claim, that supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of DHA and EPA omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Youth Principles Krill Oil - Omega 3’s with Superba combines the attributes of these premier omega-3 dietary sources. DHA is practically a vitamin since the body is extremely limited at making it from precursor nutrients. EPA likely contributes to the overall benefits of omega-3s in the body but does not substitute for DHA.
DHA Is Essential for Healthy Brain, Eye and Heart Development.*
Beginning in the womb and continuing through life, DHA is essential to healthy organ functions. Its importance for the prenatal brain, eye, and heart development is well documented. Human breast milk is naturally enriched in DHA, and in the U.S. it has been added to infant feeding formulas since 2002. Infants with higher levels of DHA intake tend to have better visual acuity and to be better behaved, more attentive and display better motor development in childhood than those with lower intakes.
DHA is virtually the only omega-3 fatty acid present in the human brain, and its levels in the brain rise from birth through to about age 20 years. DHA and EPA status of adults is positively associated with maintenance of a healthy mood, as concluded from extensive data analysis by the American Psychiatric Association. Two clinical trials found DHA can benefit memory in healthy individuals aged older than 55 years.
Numerous Benefits for the Heart and Circulation.*
That DHA and EPA support the heart and circulation is clearly evident from numerous human population studies, clinical trials, and laboratory experiments. This compelling body of evidence persuaded the American Heart Association (AHA) to join other professional healthcare organizations worldwide to recommend daily consumption of DHA and EPA for cardiovascular wellbeing.
The likely cardiovascular actions of DHA and EPA include support for healthy heart rhythm maintenance support for healthy platelet function and support for healthy blood vessel wall function. DHA and EPA can be accurately measured in cell membranes (red blood cells), as their relative percentage compared to the other fatty acids in the membrane, and this is called the omega-3 index. Individuals who score well on this index may have superior cardiovascular health.
