How does Krill Oil Stack up?

When choosing an Omega-3 supplement, it's essential to know your options. Some popular choices are Fish oil and the vegetarian favorite, Flaxseed oil. But you may not know there is an extensive list of alternatives.

So how do you know which is right for you?

When it comes to Omega-3 Supplements, here are your options:

Natural fish oil - is the oil that comes from the tissue of oily fish, mostly in the form of triglycerides. It's the closest thing you can get to real fish. Natural fish oil contains several essential nutrients. The amount of omega-3s in fish oil — including both EPA and DHA —ranges from 18–31%, but the amount varies between fish species. Additionally, natural fish oil boasts vitamins A and D. Salmon, sardines, herring, menhaden, and cod liver are among the most common sources of natural fish oil. These oils are available in capsules or liquid form.

Processed fish oil - Processed fish oils are purified or concentrated. They're more vulnerable to oxidation and less easily absorbed by your body unless they're converted back into triglycerides via a synthetic process.

Green-lipped mussel oil - Green-lipped mussel oil is another source of omega-3 fatty acids. This shellfish contains several forms of omega-3s and is known to be an environmentally-friendly choice.

Mammalian oil - also a good source of DPA, in addition to EPA and DHA in triglyceride form.

ALA oil - ALA oils are made from plant sources and contain both omega-3s and omega-6s. They don't contain any EPA or DHA, the types of omega-3s that are active in your body.

Algal oil - Microalgae are a plant source of EPA and DHA in triglyceride form. This oil is environmentally friendly and considered an excellent omega-3 source for vegetarians and vegans.

Krill Oil - Krill oil is naturally low in contaminants and contains a potent antioxidant. It provides Omega-3s in both triglyceride and phospholipid form, which are well absorbed. Krill oil is a uniquely efficient source of EPA and DHA due to its superior bioavailability versus fish oil.

Research has shown that krill oil is more bioavailable than fish oil, meaning the omega- 3s it contains are more easily absorbed and utilized than those forms of fish oil.

Quality of life's Neptune Krill Oil has proven to provide several advantages over fish oil, including significantly better bioavailability, more potent antioxidant activity, and purity.
