overview and benefits

Overview

Royal Red Omega-3 Krill Oil by Webber Naturals is a source of easily absorbed omega-3 fatty acids to support cardiovascular and brain health. It is high in phospholipid-bound EPA and DHA for rapid absorption and incorporation into cell membranes. Krill oil also contains the antioxidant astaxanthin and may support healthy blood lipid status.

Advanced Info

Royal Red® Omega-3 Krill Oil from Webber Naturals is made from Antarctic krill oil, a source of essential omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants. It provides a functional dose of the omega-3s eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) to support brain function and the cardiovascular system, and help reduce joint pain associated with osteoarthritis. EPA and DHA also help relieve symptoms of dysmenorrheal and premenstrual syndrome.

Unlike the omega-3s in fish oil, krill oil’s EPA and DHA are bound naturally to phospholipids, which increase their absorption in the gut and delivery throughout the body. Krill oil therefore, provides similar health benefits as fish oil but at a lower dose.

This sustainably sourced, 100% pure Antarctic krill oil is naturally rich in astaxanthin, a valuable antioxidant that helps protect against free radical damage and oxidation of EPA and DHA.

Royal Red Omega-3 Krill Oil undergoes an innovative extraction process specially designed to preserve the natural omega-3s and antioxidants found in krill. The International Certified Omega program (IVO) seal guarantees pure, potent, and sustainable marine oil. Each softgel delivers 120 mg of highly bioavailable omega-3 fatty acids and 150 mcg of astaxanthin without a fishy odour or aftertaste.

frequently asked questions

  1. Is there any vitamin A or D in the omega-3 products?
    Our Omega-3 Fish Oil products do not contain vitamins A or D unless labelled. The small amounts of naturally-occurring vitamins in these fish oils are removed during processing and purification.
  2. How much Omega-3 is in Cod Liver Oil?
    Fish liver oils are excellent sources of preformed vitamin A and vitamin D, but they usually contain small amounts of essential fatty acids (EFAs) as compared to other fish sources like anchovies, sardines, and mackerel. The cod liver oil in Webber Naturals Lemon Meringue Omega-3 liquid provides naturally occurring EPA and DHA levels (100 mg of EPA and 133.3 mg of DHA per teaspoon) and also has vitamins A and D. Omega-3 Super Concentrate and Wild Alaskan Salmon & Fish Oil products from Webber Naturals are excellent sources of EFAs.
  3. Does natural ambient or fluorescent lighting affect the quality of fish oil packaged in clear bottles?
    Our omega-3 fish oils have been rigorously tested and uphold the highest standards for product integrity when exposed to controlled and uncontrolled light conditions in clear bottles. Our entire line of natural health products are subject to a robust stability testing program on an ongoing basis to ensure they support their shelf-life assignment and meet the ongoing scrutiny of regulatory and industry bodies including the Natural and Non-prescription Health Products Directorate (NNHPD)/Health Canada, Food & Drug Association (FDA), Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and USP (Unites States Pharmacopeia).Because NNHPD mandates that supplements be labelled as “store in a dark place”, some consumers have expressed concerns about fish oil supplements packaged in clear bottles and exposed to light when stored on shelf. To address these concerns, an internal study was performed over a five-year period to test the quality and stability of encapsulated omega-3 fish oils stored in clear bottles and exposed to controlled and uncontrolled light conditions. The results support the quality and stability of our products in their current packaging configuration. There was no difference in quality and performance test measurements between samples of encapsulated omega-3 fish oil capsules in clear bottles exposed to uncontrolled light (both natural ambient and fluorescent lighting conditions) and encapsulated omega-3 fish oil capsules stored in dark conditions over a period of five years. We are committed to ensuring that all of our natural health products meet the highest quality industry standards and the expectations of consumers. We continue to perform additional studies to supplement the data we’ve already collected regarding encapsulated fish oil stored in clear bottles. All studies to date support the selection of clear packaging and associated shelf life assignment. Our additional testing also showed that natural and fluorescent light had no influence on fish oil oxidation.As a final note, the temporary light exposure of packaged products in typical manufacturer-to-retailer and retailer-to-consumer cycles is substantially less than what our test samples were exposed to. It’s safe to conclude that any concern regarding our products’ packaging delivery system is unwarranted. Statements mandated by NNHPD to store products “in a dark place” are made with excess caution and do not have a direct bearing on the integrity of our fish oil products.
  4. How do you guarantee the safety and purity of your fish oils?
    Every ingredient we use as a raw material for our products is tested for purity, identification (so we know it IS what it is supposed to be), heavy metals, pesticides, and other contaminants in accordance with Canada’s Natural Health Products Directorate requirements and United States Pharmacopoeia (USP) guidelines. Our laboratories also test finished products for weight, disintegration time, uniformity, and verified potency. In-house testing facilities ensure that accurate test results can be obtained quickly and efficiently.
  5. Do I have to refrigerate omega-3 softgels?
    Liquid oils high in polyunsaturates should be refrigerated after opening, but softgel capsule products only need to be stored in a cool and dry location. The oil inside the softgels is protected from light and oxygen and is preserved with vitamin E (natural tocopherols). Storing capsule products in a cool and dry location will ensure the oil is safe and stable up to expiry; refrigeration is not necessary. We have tested the products using accelerated temperature/humidity models as well as real-time testing under normal conditions to make sure that the product maintains freshness.
