Is Krill oil better than fish oil for heart health?
EPA and DHA have long been shown to lower blood pressure, prevent clotting and abnormal heart rhythm, and slash risk of fatal heart attack. But for improving cholesterol and decreasing triglycerides, research suggests krill oil has an edge over fish oil.
One study published in the Alternative Medicine Reviews found those taking 1.0 g of krill oil per day had twice the reduction in total cholesterol than those taking 3 g of fish oil — looking at 120 people with high cholesterol and high triglycerides. The krill oil group also saw bad cholesterol and triglyceride levels plummet, while the fish oil group saw no significant change.
Better than Fish Oil
Omega-3 from Krill Oil is in phospholipid, water soluble form so it is more absorbable and doesn’t pool on top of the stomach, prompting reflux and fishy aftertaste, like fish oil supplements can.
Because Krill Oil is more absorbable, you don’t need to take as much and the pill sizes are smaller than Fish Oil.
A Rich Source of Omega-3
With over 8,000 human studies, Omega-3 fatty acids found in our Neptune Krill Oil are among the most researched nutritional compounds in the world. Omega-3s have been shown to support healthy heart and joints, improve mood and cognitive health, and support a healthy menstrual cycle for women.
Pure & Sustainable
Neptune Krill Oil is sustainably harvested from pure Antarctic Krill and is Friend of the Sea certified. Krill is a sustainable source of Omega-3 because of strong regulations, abundant populations, and low catch limits (less than 1% total biomass allowed). Compared to Fish Oil, Krill Oil is naturally more pure and sustainable because it is harvested from lower on the food chain.
