Product Description

Size: 60

Neptune Krill Oil (NKO) is known for its unique fatty acid (FA) profile, as well as for its rich antioxidant content. NKO's balanced fatty acid content includes not only EPA and DHA, the crucial Omega-3 , but Omega-9 and phospholipids, as well. NKO is a rich source of Astaxanthin, a powerful immune-supporting antioxidant. Clinical studies have shown that NKO can support joint comfort, healthy blood lipid levels, and may reduce symptoms of pre-menstrual syndrome.* This 1,000 mg Krill Oil product is an enteric coated, odor controlled softgel to make it easier to tolerate for those who may experience nausea or reflux from fish oils. Neptune Krill Oil is manufactured under strict quality control standards. It is tested to be free of potentially harmful levels of contaminants (i.e. mercury, heavy metals, PCB, dioxins, and other contaminants).

I love NOW supplements and find the company to be highly reputable and their products to be high quality and reasonably priced. These are the highest quality Krill oil supplements from NKO that I can find. Mercola (which I've bought in the past) used to be better quality. These NOW NKO Krill have higher Omegas and astaxanthin (antioxidant with all kinds of health benefits). Also, I noticed that the NOW doesn't smell fishy like the bottle of Mercola does. I'll stick with NOW Krill from now on. The NOW have an enteric coating and krill doesn't spoil like other fish oils tend to due to the high antioxidant levels, from what I've read.

Mercola used to manufacture high quality krill oil, but they've since changed suppliers and the quality is worse than what it was. They are trying to fool consumers with a "new and improved" label, but the comparison below speaks for itself.

Mercola Krill Oil:
1,000 mg genuine Krill Oil
150 IU vitamin A
400 mg omega-3 rich phospholipids
90 mg EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid)
50 mg DHA (docosahexaenoic acid)
20 mg omega-6 fatty acids
600 mcg astaxanthin

Now's NKO Krill

Neptune Krill Oil (NKO) 1.0 g (1,000 mg)
Omega-3 Fatty Acids 300 mg
Eicosapentaenoic Acid (EPA) 150 mg
Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) 90 mg
Other Omega-3 Fatty Acids 60 mg
Omega-6 Fatty Acids 20 mg
Omega-9 Fatty Acids 100 mg
Phospholipids 400 mg
Esterified Astaxanthin 1.25 mg
Choline 70 mg

This is a side-by-side comparison of ten leading brands of krill oil: Nutrigold Krill Oil Gold (1000 mgs), Nutrigold Krill Oil Gold (500 mgs), Now Foods Neptune Krill Oil (1000 mgs), Now Foods Neptune Krill Oil (500 mgs), Schiff Mega Red Extra Strength Omega-3 Krill Oil, Schiff MegaRed Omega-3 Krill Oil, Viva Labs Krill Oil, Jarrow Formulas Neptune Krill Oil, Source Naturals NKO Neptune Krill Oil, and Source Naturals Arctic Pure Krill Oil, and a leading brand of omega-3 fish oil, Nutrigold Triple Strength Omega-3 Gold Fish Oil.

OMEGA-3 FATTY ACIDS: Omega-3 fatty acids are what make krill oil and fish oil so beneficial. There are three major components of omega-3 fatty acids in these products: EPA (which is good for your heart, circulatory system, lowering triglycerides, depression and mood orientation, and is a powerful anti-inflammatory for soothing joint pains), DHA (which is good for your mental acuity, or if you are pregnant, nursing an infant, or for children), and "other." Other omega-3s, like DPA and SDA, are types of fatty acids which are easily converted to EPA in the body. In most fish oils, the amount of these other fatty acids is low, but in highly concentrated oils, it can be a significant amount. The important components are EPA and DHA.

KRILL OIL VS FISH OIL: Krill oil is an omega-3 nutrient and is an alternative source of omega-3 than fish oil. Some folks prefer krill oil over fish oil because they believe it has increased bioavailability and better absorption than fish oil, and contains the additional nutrients, Astaxanthin and Phospholipids. In fact, this is correct. Krill oil has better bioavailability and absorption than fish oil and contains Astaxanthin and Phospholipids, neither of which are contained in fish oil.

I went to Consumerlab.com, a company that independently tests health and nutritional products. One of the studies that they undertook was with this product. The study that they did found that only 79.1% of the reported EPA that the company (Now Foods) claimed to have was actually in the pills and 76.7% of the reported DHA was in the pills. The study also pointed out that 78.4% of the total omega-3 fatty acids were actually in the pills as well. They also analyzed the amount of "spoilage compounds" which measures burping and other "gastrointestinal effects." To be considered fresh, the spoiling compounds can't exceed a TOTOX value of 26, this product had a TOTOX value of 57.4.

Don't pay attention to their "GMP quality assured" seal. It's meaningless without companies like Consumerlab actually doing independent research to verify if a company's claims are true. Even if only 5% of the DHA (which is more important and necessary than EPA) was off, every company has a duty to accurately disclose what is in their products. I've had a suspicion about this company for some time since I bought their magnesium pills. I could never reconcile how a company that produces as many supplements as NOW Foods has listed on their website is able to find a way to price their products at competitive price points compared with their competitors. Especially a company with little notoriety-I only found out about this company a few months ago.

Anyways, I did my part. And more likely in the future, I'll seek an alternative to this company.

Krill oil is becoming pretty popular lately, and I think for good reason. It has all the benefits of fish oil, and then some. It would be impossible to list all the benefits, and besides if you're looking for krill oil, you probably know some of them. If you don't, just Google "Krill oil", but also Google "Astaxanthin." Each capsule has 1.25mg of Astaxanthin, so it's like getting 2 for 1.

The quality is great. As far as I know, all Krill oil sold right now is made by Neptune Bio Tech (hence the "NKO" somewhere on the bottle of any kind of krill oil). So the main ingredient is pretty much the same from one brand to another, so why pay more?

Some of the benefits I've experienced:

-Decreased pain and recovery time from weight training
-Slight increase in energy
-Skin and hair feels better
-Natural Sun-block (sounds crazy, but this is proven in research on Astaxanthin. I have drastically decreased the amount of sunscreen I use and have yet to get a sunburn that peels)
-An increased general sense of well-being

I've gotten the best results taking 3-4 per day, spaced throughout the day, depending on my level of exercise, stress, sun exposure, etc.
