Onnit TPC: Total Primate Care Now Available!

Onnit Total Primate Care Back in Stock!It’s been a long time since it was last available, but Onnit Total Primate Care is now back in stock on the Onnit Labs website.

For the unfamiliar, Total Primate Care is a variety pack of sorts that’s available in 15 and 30-day supplies. Each daily supply comes with a day and a night pack. Inside each pack is a variety of Onnit supplements designed to give you the boost that you need throughout the day, and then the right combination of nutrients to help you relax and unwind before bed in the evening.

The supplements included in each TPC: Total Primate Care pack include Stron Bone and Joint, Shroom Tech Immune, Alpha Brain, Shroom Tech Sport, krill oil, Spirulina and Chlorella, New Mood, Vitamin C and Lysine, and Coral Calcium.

If you’re curious about Onnit products but are turned off by how expensive it can be to purchase a bottle of Shroom Tech Sport and a bottle of Alpha Brain, Total Primate Care is a good way to give things a test drive without breaking the bank.

Currently, a 15-day supply of Total Primate Care is on sale at $5 off its regular price, and the 30-day supply is on sale at $30 off the regular price.

Onnit Krill Oil Now Available!

Onnit Krill Oil Now Available!Onnit Krill oil has been available for a long while as a part of the Total Primate Care package. I can’t say exactly why it took this long, but as of last week, the krill oil capsules are now available on their own at the Onnit website. You can now build your own Total Primate Care packs if you so desire, since TPC will be sold out for at least a few more weeks.

I’ve written about krill oil on this blog in the past, but if you missed that post I’ll break it down for you as succinctly as I can. Krill oil is much like fish oil, but instead of coming from a fish, it comes from krill, which is actually a small crustacean. Krill can be found in every ocean on earth, but this is not a crustacean that you would want to eat. Krill is typically used in aquariums or as bait for fishing. Onnit krill oil is harvested from the waters of Antarctica and is tested rigorously to ensure it’s free of toxic heavy metals.

Compared to fish oil, the omega-3 fatty acids found in krill oil are absorbed into the body much easier. Krill oil can reduce inflammation in the cardiovascular system, assist in weight management by reducing harmful cholesterol, and help promote healthy blood pressure. It has also shown to improve cognitive function and even mood in adolescents and adults.

I could go on about why krill oil is good for your body and why Onnit krill oil in particular is better than most (if not all) other krill oils on the market, but Onnit does a better job of explaining it all. So if you’re looking for a new supplement to add to your health regimen, or if you’re looking for an alternative to fish oil, check out Onnit’s krill oil capsules. If you’re simply looking for more detailed information about krill oil than I could ever provide, I also encourage you to visit Onnit’s website for a more scientific explanation of how krill oil works and how it can benefit you.

What is Krill Oil?

What is Krill Oil?I noticed that contained within the day and night packs of Onnit TPC (Total Primate Care) are capsules of krill oil. I like to think that I know a lot about Onnit products, both the ones currently available and the ones in the pipeline, but krill oil was something that was new to me. I’ve written about fish oil and its benefits for this blog before, but decided to investigate krill oil and its health benefits a little further.

So what exactly is a krill? Turns out that it also comes from the ocean–every ocean has krill, actually–but it’s a small crustacean rather than a fish. To be honest, it looks more like a bug and definitely not something that you would want to eat, unlike shrimp or crab. Most of the krill that’s caught is used in aquariums, as bait for fishing, and in the pharmaceutical industry where products like krill oil are produced.

Much like fish oil, krill oil is packed with omega-3 fatty acids. Unlike fish oil though, the omega-3 fatty acids in krill oil are joined in a phospholipid structure rather than in the triglyceride form like fish oil. Confusing, right? What this means is that the omega-3 fatty acids are more easily absorbed into your body when you take krill oil compared to fish oil.

However, compared to fish oil, krill oil is much more expensive, and to get any substantial benefits from taking krill oil you need to take about 1,000mg per day. Most capsules contain about 300-500mg, so you can quickly go through a costly bottle when you’re taking multiple capsules per day. Fortunately, Onnit TPC (Total Primate Care) contains two 500mg capsules of krill oil which will get you to that 1,000mg threshold where you’ll get the benefits of speedier absorption that the krill oil provides. You’ll also get the added benefits of all the other supplements contained in each day and night pack, which you can read more about here.

Onnit TPC: Total Primate Care Review

Onnit TPC: Total Primate Care ReviewOnnit has just released TPC: Total Primate Care. This isn’t a new product, but rather a repackaging and bundling of its most popular supplements. The advantage to choosing Total Primate Care is that you can save a substantial amount of money compared to buying bottles and bottles of each individual supplement separately. You also ensure your body is obtaining all the vitamins, minerals, and nutrients it needs that can’t always be found in the foods you eat on a daily basis.

TPC: Total Primate Care vitamin packs are touted to be “brain and body health for a happy human”. Available in 15 and 30-day packages, each box contains day and night packs for each of the 15 or 30 days. During the day, you have a capsule each of Stron Bone and Joint, Shroom Tech Immune, Alpha Brain, Shroom Tech Sport, and krill oil, along with two capsules of Spirulina and Chlorella. At night, there is a capsule each of New Mood, Vitamin C and Lysine, Shroom Tech Immune, Coral Calcium, and Krill Oil, with two capsules of Spirulina and Chlorella.

The supplements chosen for the day pack were selected to help give your body a kickstart when you first wake up. Alpha Brain will ensure your brain is running at full RPM, while Shroom Tech Sport provides you with the energy you need to muscle through the day. Stron Bone and Joint and the rest of the supplements provide your body with the vitamins and nutrients it needs to function properly.

I’ve written about Spirulina and Chlorella in the past and its benefits, so its no surprise to me that it was also included in the night pack along with the day. Krill oil is also included in the day and night pack, providing essentially fatty acids the body needs to reduce inflammation and curb high blood pressure. The rest of the supplements included in the night pack were chosen to supply the body with essential vitamins and nutrients, boost immune levels, and to help you relax. New Mood will boost serotonin levels to help you relax at the end of a stressful day.

Buying all of these supplements individually would cost over $200. With Onnit’s TPC: Total Primate Care, it’s just over $100. That works out to only $3.65 per day. For less than a cup of coffee at Starbucks each morning, you can ensure your body is feeling healthy and running at peak performance. TPC is also more convenient if you’re especially busy or if you travel frequently, enabling you to toss a package into your bag or suitcase without having to count out each capsule individually.

As you can see, the benefits to Total Primate Care are plentiful. If you were on the fence about trying any of these supplements, either individually or combined together, TPC is a great opportunity to do so at an affordable price.
