This is a side-by-side comparison of ten leading brands of krill oil: Nutrigold Krill Oil Gold (750 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 Krill Oil (30 Count), Source Naturals NKO Neptune Krill Oil (60 Count), and Source Naturals Arctic Pure Krill Oil (60 Count), 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.Read more ›
I read up on fish oil helping asthmatics and decided to give it a try - and it worked. I had relief from the majority of my symptoms, but I had to take two large (HORSE-SIZED) pills every day and deal with "burp-back." When I read about krill oil being more effective than fish oil at controlling inflammation, having asthaxanthin in it, and not having any "remnant burps," I decided to try it.
The NOW brand of NKO was rated more highly by people who know more than I do about these things than even Mercola's own brand, and was less expensive, which made it worth the gamble. So we finished up our FO capsules (really, our son did - my husband and I tried the NKO as soon as it came in), and went about our merry way.
It took me about a week to realize I was breathing easier (and didn't have ANY coughing) and my overall inflammation was lower than on FO - my feet and ankles felt fine when I got out of bed in the morning (if it's painful to walk after sleeping, it's a key sign for me that inflammation is up). Two weeks in, I realize our son is concentrating better than ever at his lessons (we homeschool and he tends towards a lack of focus), and by three weeks in, it's time for another order of the krill oil.
It's more expensive than FO, no question. For my family of three, it runs us about $50 every 40 days. That's over $1 per day for my family's use. But the benefits we're seeing from it are worth the extra expense to me - so we'll keep going.
Shortly after they started taking this Krill Oil along w/ Niacin capsules we noticed dramatic results! Niacin & Krill Oil are not only good for health, energy, & the heart but they also help to better regulate mood & seratonin levels which often are the root cause of mental disorders such as bipolar, & cronic depression.
Krill Oil also helps prevent altzheimers & works wonders for a variety of other ailments.
I highly recommend this product to anyone for either a more natural remedy for mood & depression or for just general overall health.
We took him to the Vet and $500 later a diagnoses of big dog hip issues.
We came home with pain pills... with the caution to give him not more than 1 pill every 24 hours.
Also the Vet recommended Krill oil and sardines.
Just fyi, I did not give him the pain medicine. dropped the bottle in a basket of supplements.
We were gone for the day and when we got back, noticed a white cap on his bed... he was bouncing
around like a puppy. Soon found the pill bottle from amongst the rest,, neatly pried off the childproof cap
and all the pills gone. We live in a remote area and thought he would probably die during the night.
He was high as a kite until late the next afternoon, but otherwise no ill effects.
Anyway the Krill Oil has been working for the last four months, so well that my husband and
I are taking it also. Husband and Dog enjoy sardines once a week also.
Our joints are singing and he is bounding up the stairs, leaping on the bed again, enjoying his life.
