Krill Oil Info

Krill is a tiny shrimp-like marine crustacean species found in all the oceans of the world.

Krill oil offers several advantages over other fish oils. Its tiny size means krill cannot store toxins such as mercury, so krill oil is free of the contaminants found in larger fish. It has much higher antioxidant content, including vitamins A and E and astaxanthin. Krill oil also has a higher ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6 essential fatty acids, so can help redress the disproportionate level of Omega 6s often present in the modern diet.

Krill Oil Benefits

Krill oil supports the heart with its high ratio of bioavailable phospholipids to balance cholesterol and triglyceride metabolism. It may improve brain function, enhancing mental clarity and cognition. Improved hormone health and musculoskeletal function are other important potential benefits of krill oil.

Krill Oil vs Fish Oil

The key factors that separate Krill oil from standard omega 3 fish oil are:

  • Higher antioxidant content – including vitamin A, E and astaxanthin (a carotenoid-like substance).
  • Krill oil has over 47 times more antioxidant protection when compared with standard fish oils.
  • Enhanced bioavailability - Krill contains phospholipid liposomes (little envelopes that carry Omega-3 and antioxidants into the cells) and this enhances the absorption of these important nutrients when compared to triglyceride carriers found in standard fish oils.
  • Better ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6
  • Greater purity - free of detectable heavy metals, dioxins and pesticides – Krill is sourced from the southern part of the Antarctic Ocean and harvested under strict conditions to ensure Krill are clean and pure.
  • Reflux free – fishy reflux is unlikely to occur after ingestion.

Krill Oil Side Effects

Contraindicated in cases of seafood allergy.

Product Reviews

  • Poor product

    star

    Really disappointed with this so called 'superior red krill' oil one a day 1500. Took it for a week; was not doing anything for my knee joint and not only that , the joint got worse, so I stopped. I can't return because I have opened it and used it, what a waste of money. The product also make my stomach windy and the wind comes out the other end which is embarrassing.

  • KRILL OIL

    star

    I was told by a doctor that the Krill oil was far more beneficial than normal fish oils so I changed over. My knees are still sore but no where near as bad as they used to be. A few things I have noticed are my skin tans better in the summer, it doesnt seem to be as dry as it used to. My bad back is feeling a lot better and some days no pain at all. Little subtle changes that I attribute to the Krill Oil. A little fishy taste, hardly noticibly if I happen to burb a while after taking but nothing offensive. I will keep taking them and the convenience to order on line and have delivered is awesome.
