Life Extension Krill Healthy Joint Formula is a patent-pending blend of deep-sea whole krill oil sourced in Antarctica, combined with hyaluronic acid and astaxanthin.
In a recent clinical trial of 100 older individuals using this innovative formulation, a 55% reduction in joint discomfort was observed in less than three months, with 63% of those participants maintaining ease of motion.
Research reveals that the fatty acids found in krill oil are particularly effective for joint health. These unique fatty acids have been shown to specifically target joint tissue.
Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the joints, where it acts to lubricate and cushion against repeated physical impacts. Because it forms a major component of cartilage and soft tissue, it is widely used to promote joint health. The difficulty has been that hyaluronic acid is a large molecule that is not well absorbed by the body. But, when combined with krill oil, it has been shown to reach significantly higher levels in the bloodstream than in stand alone form.
Krill oil is a natural source of the antioxidant carotenoid astaxanthin. Astaxanthin works in multiple ways, including suppression of free radical activity and enhanced mitochondrial function. It also maintains krill oil’s molecular stability. Most commercially available krill oils do not contain significant amounts of astaxanthin as it is nearly eliminated during processing. Life Extension Krill Healthy Joint Formula is fortified with astaxanthin, for maximum stability and superior benefit.
