The unique quality of krill oil is its natural composition: It contains omega-3 fatty acids attached to phospholipids instead of triglycerides like in fish oils. ... It is more effective, as it allows the body to absorb more of the omega-3, so you can take lower doses of EPA and DHA than typically required for fish oils. In addition, Krill oil is an excellent source of anthocyanins, a powerful, naturally occurring antioxidant. As well, Krill, being at the bottom of the food chain, toxicity concerns are not an issue, and because they are so abundant, they are classified as a sustainable food source.

The recommended dose for each product is listed on the label.

It’s well known that that the food we eat is unfortunately a source of toxins, due to chemicals in processing and the environment.

When we detox, these toxins are released from the body (from fat), now allowing more fat to be burned as an energy source

As the configuration of the Body Awakening Probiotic is "powder" , there is no individual packing or capsule pill for isolation. To what extent is the product efficiency reduced after the container has been opened?
We use powder because the body is able to absorb powder much easier than capsules - particularly kids, babies and adults with digestion problems. We recommend keeping our products in the fridge when they have been opened (particularly during the summer), however all the probiotics in our products are freeze-dried which means they are stable at room temperature. The probiotics become activated (or alive) when they contact water. Most probiotics on the market are not freeze-dried which means they become damaged with heat - even in capsule form. Freeze-dried is the most stable method for probiotics, and is used by only the top quality companies world-wide. Capsules do not actually preserve the product quality any better then powder. In fact capsules can often effect the product if the capsule becomes exposed to temperature changes or moisture. From our experience powder is the best option.
According to the factory test report, the heavy metal level of Body Awakening Probiotic is less than 10ppm. Since some heavy metals are prohibited, therefore, are you able to provide the breakdown of the 10ppm of heavy metal?
Our tests reports go down the 10 parts-per-million, and the results say ‘less than 10 PPM’ - which is basically zero, as food quality safety tests globally do not go down further than 10 PPM, so they list as <10 PPM. Please note that our products are made to cGMP standards which is a much higher standard the GMP. cGMP is the standard used in drug and medicine manufacturing.
