Patented production method
NKO® krill oil uses a gentle, patented cold extraction process that guarantees intact maintenance of all the nutrients in the oil. This extraction technology relies solely on low temperature and efficient fractionation methods that remove unwanted salts and other polar constituents. It increases the relative amount of phospholipids by mechanically removing triglycerides. None of these processes involves the use of other solvents besides ethanol and water.
NKO® technology guarantee you a product of the highest quality and purity with high levels of nutrient concentration.
NKO® krill oil is processed in our 180,000 square foot NSF GMP facility in Houston, TX, using one of the best quality standards in the industry.

WHY CHOOSE NKO BY AKER BIOMARINE?
NKO krill oil is certified by Friends of the Sea
The vast majority of krill oil comes from the Southern Ocean in Antarctica, which is controlled by the Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (CCAMLR).
The 25-member-country convention requires every fishing boat to be licensed and sets strict limits on how they fish and how much they catch. The CCAMLR allows licensed krill operators in the Antarctic to collectively catch a limit of 620,000 tons of krill (around 1 percent of the total biomass) annually. That limit has never been reached.
The krill fishery is considered to be one of the most regulated and sustainable fishery in the world. NKO® is certified for sustainability by the nonprofit marine conservation group Friend of the Sea.
NKO krill oil and Eco Harvesting
As part of the Aker BioMarine group, NKO® uses the proprietary Eco Harvesting method with the aim to respect and protect the harvesting areas from environmental impact.
This gentle harvesting technique includes a net that doesn't harm other species and almost eliminates by-catch and preserves the nutritional integrity of the krill.
