The best of both worlds!
Radiant Life Krill Plus12 combines pure krill oil with the highest possible dose of natural astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant from algae and phytoplankton. Regular krill oil contains 0.1 mg astaxanthin per capsule. This krill oil with astaxanthin formula contains an optimal blend of 6 mg of added astaxanthin per capsule or 12 mg per serving! That's more than in any other krill oil with astaxanthin formula blend.
Krill oil is known for its high amount of omega-3s in bioactive forms of DHA and EPA. Add to that the antioxidant capacity of astaxanthin, and it becomes easy to see why this whole superfood supplement is something special. Potential benefits may include anti-aging, better brain health and mental stability, radiant skin, and improved blood sugar control.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What is Krill?
A. Krill are a tiny, shrimp-like crustacean found throughout the world's oceans, the purest of which are sourced from the Antarctic. Krill are extremely low within the food chain feeding primarily on phytoplankton. It is believed that krill comprise the largest biomass on the planet.
Q. Why should I take Krill Oil?
A. Our Radiant Life Krill Oil is the purest of Antarctic krill. It provides an optimal combination of Omega-3 fatty acids (DHA and EPA) as well as phospholipids and important antioxidants to support overall wellness.
Q. Why would I take Krill oil if already taking fish oil and/or cod liver oil?
A. The Omega-3 in krill oil is mainly in the phospholipid form which research suggests is preferred to Omega-3 in the triglyceride form as it occurs in fish oil and cod liver oil. Phospholipid fatty acids represent key structural components of our cells and play a vital role in cell membrane functioning and thus the overall functioning of our cells, tissues and organs.
Q. Tell me more about the antioxidant nature of Krill oil?

Q. Why would I take Krill Plus12?
A. There have been an impressive array of clinical studies demonstrating the value of astaxanthin as a supremely effective antioxidant.
I first heard about the krill oil/high astaxanthin combination through an energy-optimizing program. The program offers an identical product for purchase but at a considerably higher price ($69.99 -- eek!). These capsules increase my energy when I take them, and as someone with CFS/ME, that's huge. I will definitely continue taking these. Great job, Radiant Life!
I have to say, this is an excellent source of Krill oil and you get the astaxanthin too. It's great to get a sustainably sourced EPA DHA fatty acids along with as astaxanthin from krill. I was pleasantly surprised how quickly I felt better from inflammation in my joints.
