Let’s Krill it Next Year

December 29, 2016

krill-illustrationHere’s one thing you can improve in 2017: your source of Omega-3 fatty-acids. If you aren’t eating a diet rich with Omega-3s (or it’s just unbalanced with Omega-6s like from fried foods) you probably need a little bit more, and a supplement can provide that (especially if you forget to carry those cheat cards about which fish/regions have the least contamination from toxins like lead!).

If you’re still on the old advice of fish oil, it may be time to switch to something better in every way: krill oil.

From the first capsule, you’ll notice an improvement. Krill oil is easier to digest, so no more stinky fish burps or stomach pains. But easy to digest has a second meaning, too: that the Omega-3s in krill oil are easier for your body to absorb and use, so you’ll get more out of each capsule.

If you’re worried about less immediate problems, let me put your mind at ease: krill is at the bottom of the food chain, is abundant, and breeds/re-populates quickly. First, that means you aren’t getting the contaminants that fish oil usually has (very few are purified, so lead is a risk), since lead accumulates in each predator, until you get to the bigger fish that are often caught for fish oil (and food). Second, it means that the environment is less at risk from krill that are harvested than fish.

And, if you choose a high-quality supplement like Deep Ocean Krill Oil, it’s sustainably harvested, too. Better for the environment, but also better handling/processing which means it’s fresher/in better shape when it comes to you. And deep ocean krill are a bright red color thanks to the antioxidant Astaxanthin, which naturally helps to keep them fresh (before becoming another beneficial addition to your diet) whereas fish oil requires added preservatives to maintain freshness.

Omega-3s are an important part of our diet, but overlooked for many Americans. Tune up your diet for next year with a little tweek: switch to Deep Ocean Krill Oil.
