For a long time now, we’ve been getting questions about fish oil. What do we know about it? Can we recommend one?
Well, we did the research. A good bit of it in fact. And we found something a whole lot better: Krill Oil.
What’s so great about it? Why is it better than fish oil and how can you get the most effective krill oil supplement?
Krill Oil Basics
Krill are tiny little shrimplike crustaceans that live in the ocean. They make up the largest biomass on the planet and are found in every sea.. but the ones we’re concerned with are known as Euphausia Superba and live in the Southern Ocean off the coast of Antarctica.
Krill are full of Omega-3 fatty acids, which is why you would take a fish oil or krill oil supplement. But unlike fish oil (which has the Omega-3’s in the form of triglycerides) krill’s Omega-3’s are in the form of phospholipids. This difference in structure makes a world of difference to you as well.
Your cell membranes are made of phospholipids. Your body can absorb and assimiliate them twice as easily as the triglyceride forms of fish oil. Which means that you can take less krill oil than fish oil and get as much or better results – so krill oil is a much better value.
Krill oil also contains as much as 50X the antioxidant power of fish oil. This is largely due to the presence of astaxanthin, one of the most exciting and powerful antioxidants known and something fish oil just doesn’t have.
We’ll be publishing a lot more info on krill oil over the coming days. For now, you can see the product we found to be the best krill oil available here.
