Supports Heart Health
MegaRed Extra Strength Omega-3 Krill Oil is a valuable source of omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, which are scientifically proven to support heart health*. The fatty acids in MegaRed Krill Oil are in a form which is similar to the cells in the human body, making them particularly easy to absorb and digest.
Unlike some fish oils, the omega-3 fatty acids in MegaRed are carried to the body's cells and absorbed in phospholipid form. Phospholipids form the structural basis of cell membranes, meaning the omega-3 fatty acids in MegaRed are efficiently absorbed by the body.
Krill is one of the Earth's most abundant and sustainable organisms. MegaRed only sources krill from the Antarctic where krill is the most abundant. This helps the ecosystem maintain a healthy, sustainable krill population.

What is it ?
Krill oil is a source of Omega 3 complexes. These oils are thought to help protect against cardiovascular diseases. Most Omega 3 is delivered in the form of fish oil capsules or Cod Liver Oil as a food additive. Krill are tiny Plankton like creatures found in the colder oceans of the World. The Krill are harvested and processed to extract the oils.
This oil is delivered in a capsule that does contain some gelatine so may not be suitable for some diets.
Looking at the available research online it is pretty much a forgone conclusion that fish oils are good for you and can help keep a healthy heart. Using Krill oil to supply these oils is a relatively new thing and the research seems patchy on whether it is as good as traditionally fish oils. Fish oils are also recommended to help keep joints supple.
I come from a family that has a long tradition of heart disease and I have always been careful to minimise the risk factors by taking regular light exercise and a good healthy diet. I don’t drink alcohol and have never smoked. I get a regular health check-up each year and at 54 so far so good I have gone the longest without heart problems as I have tried to look after myself. I have taken fish oils for years and fish is the main source of protein in my diet. Two of my younger brothers have had heart problems even though they are quite fit but they don’t take fish oils. My doctor actively encourages the use of fish oils in the diet as his own research has found it to be beneficial to the heart. As to the effectiveness of Krill oil the jury seems to be out in the research community.Read more ›
my husband is diabetic and has high cholesterol so these would be good for him but we as a family have noted that he appears calmer and happier these past few weeks also he himself has noticed he is more "chilled" and he said his memory seems alot better.he has a cholesterol test at the end of the month so we will see what happens there and report back.
me i seem a little less stressed and find them easier on my stomach than fish oil but i ont take them every day as i take some other medicines that can interact with these.
so i would recommend anyone interested to give them a go.
I dropped a line to Schiff customer services to ask what type of gelatin the shell is made of, so presumably it is of bovine or porcine material. I received no reply. Whilst, of course, krill is hardly vegetarian, there are still plenty of people who avoid gelatin based products. There is very little information on the packet, enclosed leaflet or even the Amazon advert (above) about this product at all.
I actually received the 300gm product - but should be 500mg - referred to as 100gm on Amazon. There is nothing to explain the reasoning for different strengths. For example, someone with cholesterol issues might want high strength - and if so which one? - whereas the lower dosage one may suit someone merely interested in long-term health.
It states that krill oil is proven to have beneficial EPA and DHA. However standard cod liver oil, and much more cheaply, contains greater quantities of this substance. KRILL oil is a "miracle food" in that it contains Astaxanthines - the substance that gives some crustaceans (such as krill) it's pink colour. Astaxanthin is beneficial as it is one of the rare substances that penetrate the blood-brain barrier (glucose and alcohol being others) and its compatibility with human cells thus leads scientists to believe Astaxanthins are good for the brain and eyes. It is one of the most powerful antioxidants we have.
However, Astaxanthin is not listed as an ingredient of Megared Krill Oil! Thus, we can assume it is negligible. This is what should differentiate krill oil from cod liver oil.Read more ›
