Calanus Oil is a source of a unique form of omega-3 obtained from Arctic zooplankton.
Calanus is a miniature crustacean and a representative of zooplankton widely found in the cold waters of the North Atlantic. Calanus Oil is a completely natural product. It contains unsaturated fats, primarily omega-3, and the carotenoid astaxanthin. The fats in calanus have a unique form of wax esters and are digested slowly, unlike the triglyceride, ethyl ester, and phospholipid forms commonly found in fish and krill oil. Due to its slow digestion, calanus oil reaches the lower parts of the intestine, where it can have an impact on maintaining normal metabolism. Astaxanthin belongs to the group of carotenoid pigments and gives calanus oil its vibrant red color.
The harvesting of calanus does not harm the population or marine environment, and the oil production process is chemical-free, making it an environmentally friendly product.
