Help maintain a healthy heart with new Boots Pharmaceuticals Krill Oil

11 March 2014
News Healthcare

Boots Pharmaceuticals Krill Oil is a new daily supplement of 100% natural Krill Oil, and unlike some other products, contains 250mg of EPA and DHA (300mg of omega 3 Krill Oil). EPA and DHA are the long chain omega 3 fatty acids that the body needs for a healthy heart function but cannot produce efficiently on its’ own. A daily intake of 250 mg of EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids, as found in Boots Pharmaceuticals Krill Oil, helps to maintain a healthy heart.



Boots UK nutritionist Vicky Pennington explains: “A healthy diet plays an important role in maintaining good heart health, especially foods that are rich in long chain omega-3 fatty acids. For people that may not like the taste of oily fish, a daily supplement such as Krill Oil is an alternative to consider.”


For people looking for additional support, Boots Pharmaceutical Krill Oil Extra Strength is also available. This contains 500mg of natural omega 3 Krill Oil in every capsule.


A healthy heart is important to help enjoy and maintain an active lifestyle. For support and to have an expert conversation about heart health, Boots pharmacists are on hand to provide advice and guidance in stores.


Boots Pharmaceuticals Krill Oil costs £13.99 for 30 capsules. Boots Pharmaceutical Krill Oil Extra Strength is available for £15.99 for 30 capsules.
