Krill Versus Fish Oil. Our Take.
We have received numerous
inquiries regarding our feelings
about krill oil.
Oz recently said on his show that
krill oil may be even better than
fish oil for fighting diseases. He
referenced a study that showed krill
oil has more omega-3s than a similar
dose of fish oil. He also noted that
krill oil contains astaxanthin,
which he said helps krill oil from
problem with the "Dr. Oz effect" is
that he has touted as many failures
as successes (i.e. acai and hoodia
failures). This is not to say that
krill oil is all hype. It is not.
However, we would not put away your
fish oil any time soon.
Krill are little shrimp, so
are not recommended for those with a shellfish
Krill is much more expensive than
Provides Much Less
Krill oil does
not provide more EPA DHA than fish
oil, but actually less. For example,
a popular krill product claims 2
capsules provides 90 mg EPA and 50
mg DHA. 2 softgels of your average
fish oil provides 600 mg EPA and 400
mg, which is a suggested daily
naturally contains omega 6 fatty
acids (20 mg in product we
researched). These are considered
fatty acids that compete with omega
Phospholipids Not for Everyone
Krill contains a lot of
phosphatidylcholine, which can be
beneficial if you need it, but not
There are huge questions about
krill's sustainability if it becomes
more popular. Krill provides food to
many large mammals (including
whales) and is not easily replaced. Calamari
oil is much more sustainable and
provides about the same amount of
most beneficial aspect of krill oil
is astaxanthin, which is an
antioxidant that has gotten much
attention recently (from none other
than Dr. Oz).
we are not dissuading you from
taking krill oil. However, for the
aforementioned reasons, we still
support supplementing with high
quality fish oil.
