As a seasoned veteran of the beauty industry, I’ve seen many an anti-aging cream during my extensive travels along with serums, doo dads, and more promising better skin and a way to turn back the clock. While I don’t have any doubt that such regimens work, when it comes down to business there’s an intrinsic factor to beauty that has to do with what we consume.
Omega 3’s contain fatty acids and antioxidants that are very important for cardiovascular heath, brain function, eye, skin health, and overall well being. As a regular consumer of Omega 3’s for just those very reasons, I was glad to take up an offer to giveaway a month’s supply of Krill Oil from Viva Labs (formerly Everest Nutrition) to one lucky reader.
According to Viva Labs, their Krill Oil, “… contains a rich supply of astaxanthin, a red pigment found in aquatic livestock such as krill, shrimp, lobster, mussel, crab and other seafood sources. Astaxanthin is known as a very powerful anti oxidant which can help rid the body of free radicals that contribute to various diseases and illnesses. Astaxanthin is also known for its anti-aging capabilities.”
Krill Oil is not the same as fish oil, and is sourced from Krill in Antartica where they are at the bottom of the food chain and don’t contain dangerous levels of chemicals, such as mercury. There are no unfortunate fish burps (and I can attest to that!), and the oil absorbs 54 times better than fish oil.
