Fish Oil Capsules: Where Can I Buy Them and What Are the Benefits?

Fish oil capsules are one source of omega-3 EPA and DHA: those good fatty acids that are known to support cardiovascular health, brain health, joint health, vision health, skin health and more.

The best fish oil capsules will meet high standards for toxin-free safety, quality of sources, bioavailability (how much your cells actually absorb), antioxidant potency, efficacy, omega-3/6 ratio and stability. Of course, how they all measure up is hard to tell when labels are all you have to go by. But the surprise is, you can do better than any omega-3 fish oil brand, once you know the basic facts.

Why Fish Oil Capsules are No Longer the Ultimate Omega-3 Source.

Until recently, fish oil was the best source of omega-3 essential fatty acids. But the recent introduction of a unique new type of marine oil capsule has made all fish oil second-best. Here's why:

  • Fish can be risky. Fish species from many of the world's waters are contaminated with toxic substances that can cause a range of health problems from minor changes to cancer. Some brands claim to be toxin-free because of special processing (molecular distillation), and those that are will have lost some nutritional value because this damages the delicate fatty acid molecules.
  • Fish oil can increase bad (LDL) cholesterol, according to findings by Mayo Clinic researchers. It can also cause Vitamin A toxicity over time if sourced from fish liver; and it can deplete Vitamin E in the body, which is why Vitamin E is added to some formulas.
  • Bioavailability is usually only about 61-65% because the omega 3 fatty acids in fish oil are in triglyceride form which is not easily taken up by your cells.
  • Quality/potency/efficacy can be questionable depending on the species used, whether multiple species are used, what part of the fish the oil is extracted from, where the fish come from and how they're processed.
  • Typical antioxidant potency is only about 8 on the ORAC scale.
  • Omega 3/6 ratio is typically around 3- or 2-to-1. Omega 3 fights inflammation, while omega 6 creates it. And because the typical American diet is far too rich in omega 6, you need a much higher ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 than you're likely to find in most any fish oil supplement.
  • Fish oil capsules are notoriously unstable and turn rancid easily, despite the addition of preservatives (which aren't good for you either).

But Not to Worry. You've Just Found the Unique New Marine Oil that Delivers Your Money's Worth and Then Some, Safely.

Thanks to Neptune Technologies and Bioresources Inc., you now have access to Neptune Krill Oil (NKO™): the richest form of health-promoting omega-3 EPA/DHA essential fatty acids ever seen in science. It comes from the choice Euphausia superba species of krill: tiny deepwater crustaceans from the pristine Antarctic Ocean.

The krill is the only animal source of three nutrients upon which all of life depends: omega 3 essential fatty acids, phospholipids and antioxidants. And here's why NKO™ capsules are superior to any fish oil and any other krill oil brand in every respect:

  • It's Perfectly Safe, Naturally. Krill are toxin-free in the first place because they're at the bottom of the food chain and therefore not consumers of the contaminants that pollute fish.
  • Superior Quality and Scientific Validation. NKO™ is made by the only company to develop the extraction method that most fully preserves the krill's amazing potential. And it's one of the few nutraceutical companies to stand behind its claims with scientific validation.
  • Nearly 100% Bioavailable. The krill's omega-3 fatty acids are in phospholipid form, just like the membranes of your cells. This makes the omega-3 nutrition 95-98% bioavailable. Your cells take it up with ease.
  • Over 48 Times More Disease-Fighting, Anti-Aging Antioxidant Power than Fish Oil. Antioxidants neutralize the free radicals that damage your cells, age you and leave you vulnerable to degenerative disease. Independent scientific testing rates NKO™ at 378 on the ORAC scale. That's 48 times more powerful than fish oil at 8. Among the krill's naturally occurring antioxidants is esterified astaxanthin, a super-antioxidant that's completely metabolized by your cells and that keeps the product from turning rancid. And that means...
  • No Preservatives or Additives of Any Kind.
  • Super-High Omega-3 to Omega-6 Ratio. NKO™ delivers a whopping 15 parts omega-3 to 1 part omega-6: inflammation-fighting power unheard of in any fish oil capsule.

Clinical Studies Prove It1.

NKO™ has been proven in clinical studies to naturally and safely:

  • Reduce LDL ("bad") cholesterol by up to 34% and increase HDL ("good") cholesterol by 44% with only 1.5 grams/day
  • Relieve both physical and emotional symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) by 42% with only 300 milligrams/day
  • Significantly reduce joint pain and inflammation throughout the body
  • Fight aging, oxidation and the potential of degenerative diseases
  • Significantly increase energy
  • Promote and help maintain both physical and mental health

And NKO™ is the only krill oil with worldwide regulatory approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as a new dietary supplement.
