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 ›
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
I mentioned this to my Krav instructor at the time and he told me about a client of his who had a similar problem and took fish oil and his pressure came down. I found the largest fish oil pills I could find and took two with every meal for two weeks, then went to my regular physician and all five measurements were in the 140's.
I was intrigued so did further research and found that Krill Oil is many times as concentrated as fish oil. I've been taking a Krill Oil pill after breakfast ever since. My blood pressure ranges from 128 to 135 for more than two years now.
I've shared this with other pilot friends and nearly all (but not all) of them have also seen their blood pressure drop.
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.
