First there was fish oil and now there’s krill oil. With many online health specialists such as Dr. Mercola and Dr. Oz pushing the value of Krill oil, more and more people are becoming interested to know what it really is.
From the name itself, Krill oil comes from krill, a shrimp-like crustacean which is the staple diet of many marine animals in the Antarctic and North Pacific Oceans.
More and more research show that this is a much better source of Omega 3 than fish oil. It is also safer for human consumption and offers more nutritional value. Some even say that it is 48x better than fish oil itself.
Bear in mind though that there are lesser studies on the benefits of Krill oil than there are on fish oil . More studies need to be made to prove just how much more beneficial Krill oil is, but for now, the research results we have on Krill oil are very promising.
