*Plus or Minus Standard Error of Measurement
† A 12-week clinical study was conducted to measure the change in omega-3 Index among an untreated control group (n=30) and a group that was administered 300 mg of MegaRed® Omega-3 Krill Oil once daily (n=30). Subjects were healthy adult females and males 18–65 years old.


MegaRed® Omega-3 Krill Oil is Easily Absorbed by the Body

The cell membranes inside your body are made of phospholipids. The Omega-3s in MegaRed® Krill Oil are already in phospholipid form, so they’re easily recognized and absorbed by the body. That, plus the fact that MegaRed® is water-soluble, is what enables MegaRed® to efficiently deliver Omega-3s in one small pill—without the fishy aftertaste.
