I love trying new supplements, especially ones that have rich health benefits. Supplements are great for giving the health benefits of foods you don’t readily eat. I regularly take supplements because I have Crohn’s so my body doesn’t absorb all nutrients from food. I take an extra dose of Omega 3′s so I was highly excited when I was offered a chance to review Everest Nutrition Krill Oil.
You are probably not familiar with Krill oil and to be honest I wasn’t either at 1st.Krill oil comes from a tiny, shrimp-like animal. Baleen whales, mantas, and whale sharks eat primarily krill. In Norwegian, the word “krill” means “whale food.” People extract the oil from krill, place it in capsules, and use it for medicine.When tested and compared along with fish oil, Krill Oil wins no question! It was found to be 54x more potent in antioxidants than fish oil. Numerous clinical trials have been done on Krill Oil and have concluded that not only is it safe, but it contains essential nutrients that your body needs. The main nutrient is called Omega-3, a fatty acid that your body can not produce on its own and must be ingested through the food we eat. Though a diet high in fish and other sea foods does replenish this it is not very efficient and too much fish could lead to mercury poisoning.
Krill Oil is very beneficial for certain health conditions which include but aren’t limited to:
* heart disease
* high cholesterol high blood pressure
* stroke cancer
* lower blood sugar
* premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and painful menstrual periods.
How it works:
Krill oil contains fatty acids similar to fish oil. These fats are thought to be beneficial fats that decrease swelling, lower cholesterol, and make blood platelets less sticky. When blood platelets are less sticky they are less likely to form clots.
I am surprised to say the pills leave no fishy aftertaste, and your not burping up fish burps. I’m not much of a sea food eater, and feel good knowing that I’m getting the Omega-3 that I need in my diet! They also have given me more energy, which I need because my crohn’s makes me feel very fatigued someone days. One bottle of Krill Oil retails for $29.95 and can be purchased on krilloil.com . Beware of many imitations outthere and shop at only a trusted retailer!
