Excellent but much more expensive than ordinary fish oil.,
This review is from: MegaRed Fast Absorbing Omega-3 300 mg Krill Oil - Pack of 90 (Personal Care)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Studies have shown that krill oil reduces LDL-cholesterol, raises HDL-cholesterol, and lowers blood sugar. There is evidence it treats pain and inflammation from rheumatoid arthritis and aches and pains in general. It has also been linked to relieving PMS.
In other good news, they are certified sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council. This is important as krill is the base foodstuff of most marine ecosystems. If it were to be oferfished the consequences for fish, birds and sea mammals could be devastating. This krill however is from the antartic where krill is super abundant.
One claim being made here is that there is no fishy odour or after-taste. Well I didn't have taste issues, but these capsules smell really bad in my opinion. They are laced with vanilla but you can smell the fishiness coming through it so that the overall effect is vanilla scented fish. Not good! The trick is not to sniff them though. Just belt them down. Very easy to swallow.
These are expensive when compared with good quality fish oil capsules. You will have to decide for yourself whether it is worth paying the extra.
