The health benefits of taking fish oil have been known for decades. Most of us as children were not given multivitamins or calcium with Vitamin D, yet a teaspoon of cod liver oil was administered by diligent mothers to help develop healthy young bodies. Fish oil has since been found to lubricate joints, help support a healthy heart and reduce inflammation. In fact taking fish oil which is rich in Omega-3 fatty acids is beneficial to almost every part of the body and is known as the "building blocks of good health". Our bodies need omega-3 to survive and we cannot produce it ourselves; we must get it from our diet and the natural supplements we take.
Scientific research has more recently found a new and more concentrated source of these essential fatty acids – krill oil. Krill are tiny crustaceans which live in the cold Antarctic Ocean which has far less heavy metals and pollutants than other seas. This means that krill oil supplements are less likely to be contaminated with mercury whilst still giving the same benefits as fish oil.
Research published in 2009 showed that krill oil supplements substantially reduced the fat in the heart and liver compared to regular fish oil. Krill oil is also a good source of one of the most powerful antioxidants in nature, called astaxanthin.
The Omega-3 content of krill oil comes in the form of phospholipids, rather than triglycerides. Phospholipids are important for maintaining a healthy cell structure and are more easily absorbed. Krill oil also does not have the nasty aftertaste which fish oil has, another benefit over fish oil, and krill oil supplements have a longer shelf-life than regular fish oil.
For those who still remain unconvinced that krill oil supplements are better than fish oil, there is a strong ecological argument for switching to krill. Krill is sustainable and renewable. This means even if everyone switches to krill oil it will not deplete the supply of krill, unlike the seriously declining numbers of cod and menhaden, the two main sources of fish oil.
