Fish Oil or Krill Oil?

What is Krill Oil

Krill Oil is the oil harvested from antarctic krill, a shrimp like crustacean that lives deep in the ocean. Scientists and doctors have discovered that ingesting this oil can have amazing affects on your body including a stronger heart, pain-free joints, a better mood, lower cholesterol, easier menstruation and overall better health.
Krill oil is a miraculous discovery from the deep pure waters of Antarctica that literally beats the pants off fish oil.  When tested head to head by an independent laboratory our Krill oil was found to be 54x more powerful in antioxidant activity than fish oil!

Four Great Reasons why Krill Oil beats the pants off fish oil:
More Omega 3s. Krill Oil contains the richest supply of DHA and EPA attached in phospholipid form. Phospholipids are much more absorbable by the body which means... more DHA and EPA at each serving.
Phospholipids. Krill Oil is rich in brain-essential "good fats" found in phospholipid form – the same as the human body which means there are no conversions or extra work the body needs to do. This makes absorption faster, easier and more effective. You won't get fish burps, upset stomach or unpleasant side effects from Krill Oil.
Antioxidant power. Krill Oil contains astaxanthin, the carotenoid that gives shrimp, krill, lobster and other foods their pink color. Astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant. Everest Nutrition Krill Oil has an ORAC value of 431 – 54X more antioxidant power than fish oil.
Purity. Krill are at the bottom of the food chain. They are virtually free of toxins, metals and other contaminants. Even better, Everest Nutrition Krill Oil is harvested and collected in its natural environment – the pristine waters of Antarctica!

Is Krill Oil safe?

Krill Oil is safe for almost everyone. If you are pregnant or are allergic to shellfish or seafood we recommend speaking to your doctor before taking Krill Oil.

My thoughts: I have taken Krill oil for a few weeks and haven't had any negative side effects.  I have heard so many good things about Krill oil and it has now replaced my use of fish oil.

The brand that I have been trying is from Everest Nutrition


  1. Sounds nice. But I want to take note of your statement "54x more powerful in antioxidant activity than fish oil". If that's really true, I love to give Krill oil a try.

  2. I'd never heard of krill oil before. Thank you for introducing it!
