Oil and Improving Standards
Redefining Krill Oil and Improving Standardsᵀᴹ
BioRed® is a Scientifically Tested, Ethical brand Krill oil with proven benefits and the highest purity of Phosphatidylcholine, Choline including considerable amounts of bioactive minor components such as Astaxanthin, sterols, tocopherols, vitamin A, flavonoids, and other minerals.
BioRed® achieves the highest quality standards setting the benchmark in healthcare for krill oil and is the best krill oil brand chosen among the top ethical centres around Malaysia. We emphasize on the evidence our product carries because it has been shown time and again that products with scientific evidence lead to better results while others may not.
BioRed®’s proprietary technology makes it more effective in the areas of bioavailability, lipid transportation, anti-inflammation and anti-oxidation effects.

What you should know about BioRed
Why packaging is important?
Krill oil is highly sensitive to heat and moisture and it can absorb moisture from its environment due to the rich phospholipids content, which can cause it to breakdown rapidly.
As krill oil is highly perishable, a high oxygen barrier in the packaging can help preserve long term freshness and prevent oxidation. As BioRed® capsules also have an enhanced resistance towards oxygen permeating the capsules, it is not necessary to flush the headspace in the bottle.
BioRed® capsules use special gelatine shells which are better at controlling moisture loss, and a well-fitting airtight closure, that prevents environmental humidity from penetrating through any gaps between the containers closure.
BioRed® has been shown to have anti-inflammatory, pro-resolving and also antioxidant abilities due to its rich Phospholipid and Omega-3 content, and Astaxanthin. There has been a growing scientific rationale for treatment of inflammatory diseases using dietary Phospholipids & Omega-3 to regulate the Inflammatory reactions.

What to expect with BioRed
Phosphatidylcholine plays a critical role in ensuring a proper balance of cholesterol in the cells(12). The lipid modifying effects of krill oil are known to be Cardioprotective. Krill oil was able to increase HDL more significantly than statins and with less side effects(15).
Heart and Inflammation
Antarctic Krill oil has strong antioxidant activities and is effective in alleviating heart disease and has been shown to be able to reduce oxidative stress in cardiovascular heart disease patients(16).
Optimal levels of Omega-3 can prevent/reverse the pathological conditions of Alzheimer’s Disease. Dietary Omega-3 in Phosphatidylcholine form can decrease the risk of Alzheimer's Disease by increasing Omega-3 supply by bypassing the faulty transporters of Omega-3 in the brain, especially in elderly individuals with genetic risk of Alzheimer’s Disease(14).
Brain Health and Cognitive function
Phosphatidylcholine bound to Omega-3 in krill oil made it more effective in activating brain function in the elderly and was significantly greater than fish oil(6).
Joint Health and Chronic Inflammation
Oral Phosphatidylcholine pretreatment had beneficial effects on characteristics of chronic arthritis(11). Krill oil was able to suppress pro-inflammatory lipid mediators and slow down osteoarthritis progression(5).
The administration of phosphatidylcholine and omega-3 rich krill oil is reported to mitigate pain and stiffness significantly due to the reduced inflammation in patients with osteoarthritis.
Phosphatidylcholine is the main transporter of Omega-3 in the eyes. Dietary Omega-3 is the main antioxidants found in the eyes and protects against retinal disease.
Krill oil is recommended as an anti-inflammatory intervention for dry eye disease, improving signs & symptoms compared to placebo, and may slow down its progression(17).
