Welcome to Series 2 of Health Unwrapped as we go beneath the sea with Aker Marine, biotech innovator and Antarctic krill-harvesting company, who explain the incredible benefits of Krill Oil and why you should take it. We speak to Thomas Repstad and Tone Gjertsen who explain the nutrients you can get from Krill Oil to support the heart, liver, brain and eye and the difference between Omega fish oil and Krill Oil and we talk about the fishy after taste that puts so many of us off from taking Omega-3.
What we discuss:
