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.

Efficient Absorption

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

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.

Krill oil. Schiff Mega Red brand.
------------------------------------------

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.

Research.
--------------
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.

hard to reveiw a suppliment but when given the opportunity to try these i got a bottle for me and my husband. i deliberately didnt look up what the krill oil did so the effects although just our opinion arent coloured by the blurb.
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 ordered this product advertised as being 500mg, but received the 300mg strength one, which is the same as the MegaRed Krill "original" It doesn't really change anything as the blurb for all of their krill oil products are identical anyway.

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.

At first impressions, it might seem a bit odd that to think that ingesting some oil every day could help you live longer. However studies conducted on Eskimos (who eat very high fat diets based on fish and whale blubber) have shown that their cholesterol levels are remarkably low and that heart disease is rare. Unfortunately, dining upon whales is largely frowned upon in these parts. Should you so much as speculate about whether whale kebabs would be more appetising when seasoned gently with coriander or when smeared coarsely in Tabasco, then you can guarantee that some hippy with hairy armpits and a chronic iron deficiency will appear from nowhere and get everyone to sign a blimmin petition against you. It's a shame really, as I'd sooner get the accumulation of krill goodness a stage further down the food chain. You certainly wouldn't catch me eating expensive grass capsules every day. Far better to let some cow with four specially trained stomachs do the hard work and then reap the nutritional grassy goodness via twelve ounces of fully developed sirloin. Alas, in this case there's no choice other than to take krill oil directly, or to fly out to Canadia and build a new life from within the confines of a whaling igloo. Incidentally, the word Eskimo is deemed extremely racist in America and they have to say "innuit" instead. That might seem a bit hard on the yanks, given that we still have impunity to use the term. However, it's not all doom and gloom across the Atlantic, as every American has the constitutional right to use the word "spaz" without fellow countrymen either getting offended or writing to Terry Wogan on Points of View USA. Not unlike England's 2010 first round world cup encounter with the USA, on balance it's a 1-1 draw.Read more ›
