Is Krill Superior to Fish and Plant-Based Oils?
by Dusty R. Green, M.Ed., Research Scientist

Krill appears to be a costly alternative to fish oil, however, krill may be the pure value champion -- it's related to biochemistry.  DHA and EPA are attached as a triglyceride to fish oil.  Your body will not absorb DHA and EPA in that form.  As a result, it must be digested in to DHA and EPA of the free-floating variety.  This is an in efficient process and a very small percent of it actually makes the trip into your blood stream.  Your gut digests the rest.  This is the most probable reason why about half of all people have the unpleasant side effects called the "burp-effect."  Even though you absorb it, your body still can't use it.  A phospholipid must be involved in the conversion process via the liver and this disables a substantial portion.  Some does get used but a lot of the DHA and EPA is wasted.

With krill oil, none of this process is required.  It is already in the form your body needs.  Theoretically, a fifteen times increase in absorption occurs over fish oil fat absorption.  So, if you take 100 mg of krill DHA and EPA, you are getting the equivalent of about 1000-1500 mg of DHA and EPA that you would from fish.  Many studies are still in the process but it appears that two 250 mg softgels per day is sufficient.

The Antioxidant Astaxanthin
Krill oil contains its own antioxidant astaxanthin.  It keeps DHA and EPA from going rancid of which fish oil does not have.  Rancidity appears to be a common problem associated with some fish oil supplements.

The scientific literature states that astaxanthin may be able to lower the incident of cataracts and age related macular degeneration.  In addition, after consuming astaxanthin and/or its cousin canthaxanthin for a few weeks, the risk of sun burn and its side effects appear to diminish considerably.

According to Joseph Mercola, MD, the potency of krill oil is, according to ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity), 48 times more potent than fish oil.    In other words ... less pills, same effects.

Evaluation of the Effects of Neptune Krill Oil on the Management of Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) and Dysmenorrhea

Neptune Krill Oil may be considered for its temporary relief of premenstrual syndrome symptoms (PMS) and painful cramps.  According to the below study, fish oil may also be helpful for PMS.

This study involved 70 women and evaluated the effectiveness of Neptune Krill Oil in the management of premenstrual syndrome and dysmenorrhea (painful cramps).  In addition, they compared it to fish oil.  The treatment period was three cycles or 45 and 90 days of treatment with either Neptune Krill Oil or omega-3 fish oil.  The data illustrated a significant reduction in the use and number of analgesics (pain killers) used for painful cramps for both the Neptune Krill Oil group and the fish oil group, however, showing krill to work a bit better.  Altern Med Rev. 2003 May;8(2):171-9.


NKO Neptune 100% Pure Krill Oil
Supports Heart, Skin, Joints, Brain, Cell Integrity, PMS Issues for Women, and More
by, Source Naturals Staff

NKO is an extract from Antarctic krill (crill) that is rich in cell membrane building blocks.  It contains a high amount of unsaturated phospholipids that work with omega-3 fatty acids (EPA & DHA).  This product is recommended for both men and women and is virtually side effects free.

NKO Neptune Krill Oil has many benefits and positive side effects.  Unlike fish oil products, NKO does not contain dangerous levels of lead or mercury, does not go rancid quickly, and tastes fresh and clean.  Made from hearty krill (shrimp-like crustaceans that thrive in the Antarctic), it is the only product to contain phospholipids specially integrated with omega-3 essential fatty acids.  This unique structure provides important cell membrane building blocks in the ratios used by the body and, according the research, may be far better utilized than stand-alone omega-3 oil products.  The result is stronger/healthier cell membranes when using krill (crill).
