2.0 out of 5 stars Not the best krill oil I have used..., 27 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bioglan Red Krill Oil + Fish Oil Capsules - Pack of 30 (Personal Care)
The gelatine (animal type not specified on carton) caplets containing this marvellous oil are heavily treated with artificial sweetener and flavourings. Why flavour anything that's going straight down the hatch? I have used krill oil for arthritic joint and muscle pain before and found it to be really effective but I won't be replacing my stock of this brand when it's all gone. Anyone who cares enough about their health to take this kind of supplement, should also consider what other ingredients are in it. Avoid if you don't like artificial perfumes such as vanillin added to your food. I feel like I'm swallowing a scented candle every day!

Thanks for highlighting the ingredient; I wouldn't have known otherwise. Can you tell us which brand you were using previously?

I was using Pink Sun Antarctic Superba, a far better quality product, but sadly not available on Amazon as far as I can see.

I use either Now Foods, Neptune Krill Oil, 500 mg, 60 Softgels or Source Naturals, Arctic Pure, Krill Oil, 500 mg, 60 Softgels - ordered from the US as it's much cheaper. Neither have any added artificial ingredients and the Now brand has no added ingredients.

Both are usually around £13.50 (depending on exchange rate) and as long as your order is under £15 excluding postage, there is no customs/vat or anything else to pay. Postage is about £2.50. I use iherb. com as I have found them reliable - if you have not used them before you can also get $5 discount on your first order by using the coupon code: GAT658
But amazon. com (US site) and a few other places in the US also sell it, not sure if they will deliver to the UK though?

I just wanted to point out that there's nothing intrinsically wrong with vanillin, whether it's extracted from Madagascan wildcrafted vanilla pods or biosynthesised. It's all the same stuff and harmless, unless you're allergic to it, in which case you'd be just as allergic to the aforementioned Madagascan wildcrafted vanilla pod extract.

Is there vanillin in this product?

In reply to an earlier post on 8 Jan 2016, 09:36:42 GMT
It has been some time since I purchased this product, but it certainly contained vanillin when I was using it; the smell was overwhelming as I mentioned in the review. While I do not know of any particular side effects to this artificial flavouring, I would suggest that anyone who normally enjoys a natural diet will also find this powerful stink too much to bear!

I'm in the middle of researching krill oil to replace my omega 3 when it runs out soon. I buy a lot of things via topcash back.I saved £265 last year on vitamins, clothes,insurances etc. Free to Sign up to and banking cash is quick and easy.
