Omega-3 for Brain Support
The brain makes up one half of the central nervous system and is composed of 60% fat. Most abundant among the brain’s fatty acids is DHA, a polyunsaturated fat that plays an important role in brain function and signaling systems. High-quality krill oil supplements can supply the body with DHA and other Omega-3s, which are metabolized by the brain. A diet rich in Omega-3 fatty acids may support mental clarity and help promote the maintenance of healthy brain system function.
Omega-3 for Vision Support
A diet high in Omega-3 may also support the maintenance of ongoing vision health, as retinal tissue is partially composed of DHA, which the body can only metabolize, not produce. In addition, astaxanthin is an antioxidant that occurs naturally in krill oil. This carotenoid can help protect eyes during daily sun exposure. Unlike fish oil, krill oil provides a unique combination of astaxanthin and DHA to support healthy vision. Adding krill oil supplements to a healthy diet can help maintain eye health and normal vision in adults.
Introducing NKO® Focus
Now you can get even more memory and vision benefits from krill oil. Our researchers have created NKO® Focus, a new condition-specific formulation to support brain and eye health.
Not only is NKO® superior to fish oil, but it’s the leader among other krill oil sources. Through our patented extraction process, the health-promoting qualities of krill oil are amplified in our products. Designed for women and men 40 years and older, NKO® Focus delivers whole health benefits with thiamine (vitamin B1) for supporting mental clarity and vitamin A for maintaining normal vision.
Also combined with our premium formula are lutein esters for helping maintain eye health. A clinical study shows that NKO® enhances the uptake of this nutrient powerhouse, demonstrating an improved absorption rate of up to 8 times. In addition, NKO® Focus contains naturally occurring choline, which is the precursor of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter involved in memory.
