KRILL, Essential for Your Pet's Diet
Natural Solutions|August 2021
There is no question that pets are part of the family and they actually help improve the mental and physical health of their human companions. To the end, it’s important that we take care of our pets and put them on the best path to wellness just like we take care of our other family members.

From proper nutrition and exercise to regular vet checkups and socialization, there are numerous ways to ensure your pet is healthy. Research shows that consumers are spending more money on their pets’ food than ever before, with the sole aim to keep them healthy and happy. One of the best ways to do this is by giving your pet a well-balanced diet and ensuring they have all the essential nutrients they need.

Omega-3 fatty acids have wide-ranging positive effects for pet health and choosing a pet food that contains omega-3 is the first step you can take to ensure your pet can benefit from this important nutrient on a regular basis. Omega-3s have many health benefits for pets, but not all omega-3 options are the same. Knowing the differences between various omega-3 sources and choosing the right one is important.

Not all omega-3s are created equal

Every pet food formula contains fats, which ideally consists of a balanced combination of omega-6s and omega-3s. There are several sources available that can be added to provide pets with essential omega-3 fatty acids and these sources are all delivered into your pet’s body in different ways. For example, krill provides EPA and DHA mainly in the form of phospholipids and since phospholipids are structurally different than omega-3 triglycerides (found in fish and algae), this difference dictates how EPA and DHA enters into the body.

Phospholipids vs. other omega-3 delivery formats
