Krill Supplements vs. Fish Oil Supplements: Which is Best? You Be the Judge.

Krill oil supplements are a unique new source of omega-3 nutrition that was first brought to market by Neptune Technologies and Bioresources in 2002. Until then, fish oil supplements were the best source of omega-3, the essential fatty acids that are critical to human health. But many waters of the world are tainted with hazardous contaminants that make a growing list of fish unsafe for human consumption. As you will see, safety if one of many differences between fish oil and krill oil supplements.

When buying fish oil supplements you must be sure the label says they're free of heavy metals, mercury, PCBs, dioxins and pesticides. For that to be true, the fish must have come from clean waters; the oil must have come from only their flesh (i.e. not their innards or heads); and it must have been molecularly distilled.

But molecular distillation damages the delicate omega-3 molecules and thus robs nutritional value from fish oil. Efficacy is further compromised in brands combining the oil of many different types of fish. And even the best fish oil will go rancid, so preservatives must be added. That's not a good thing either.

Also, most fish oil brands contain too much omega-6. The problem here is that omega-6 causes inflammation, and this counteracts the inflammation-reducing benefits of omega-3.

The Krill Oil Difference

You've just found a marine oil supplement so superior to fish oil, it's the last form of omega-3 nutrition you'll ever need to buy. The problem-solving, health-promoting differences between krill and fish oil simply speak for themselves.
