What is Krill? Antarctic Krill is a shrimp-like crustacean that lives deep in the ocean. This oil was tested by an independent laboratory and compared to fish oil. It was found that it contains 54 times more antioxidants then normal fish oil. In fact, in comparison to Fish oil, Krill Oil contains the richest supply of DHA and EPA in phospholipid form. Phospholipids are much more absorbable by the body. Everest Nutrition Krill Oil is harvested and collected in its natural environment, the pristine waters of Antarctica. They are virtually free of toxins and other impurities. While they are safe for almost everyone. If you are pregnant or have a shellfish allergy, you should speak with your doctor before taking Krill Oil.
I recently received some Krill Oil to review. One thing worth noting is that with certain varieties of fish oil, I found myself with a bit of indigestion. Often depending on the capsule and the strength of the formula I ended up tasting it for hours afterwards. Sometimes it can be quite unpleasant.
When I opened up the bottle, I immediately noticed the dark reddish color of the oil. The hubby examined the jar and was happy to note that it provided effective aide with PMS symptoms. Not like I need that... The recommended daily dose is two capsules a day with food, preferably in the morning with breakfast. I spent the first couple days weening myself on to help my body adjust to the additional nutrients. I have felt very good while taking these and I will continue to do so.
