Why Neptune Krill Oil is Better than Fish Oil

Omega-3 fatty acids are among the most essential nutrients, mainly because the body can't produce its own. This makes omega-3 fatty acids categorized as part of the few vital nutrients in our diet. They are known to help against a myriad of health conditions, covering both physical and mental health. Omega-3s are also critical for some of the primary functions involved in recovery, immunity, and growth.

The most popular source of Omega-3s is fish or, more specifically, fish oil. This is why doctors and other health experts recommend a diet that includes fish once a day or a few times a week. You can also get omega-3 from plant sources, but it's an entirely different form, and the concentration per serving is too tiny for a person's daily requirement.

Fish oil is perhaps the most popular form of omega-3 supplements, but another form is actually more potent, called Krill oil.

What is Krill Oil?

Krill oil is derived from really small crustaceans called Antarctic krill. Krill oil is rich in EPA and DHA, the two types of omega-3 fatty acids that the body benefits from the most. What makes krill oil better than fish oil is the purity of the source.

The primary source of omega-3 fatty acids are algae. Algae are consumed by krill, and krill are consumed by fish, and fish are further consumed by their predators, such as humans. As you can see, krill is one level above fish when it comes to omega-3 fatty acid purity, making krill oil a more "direct" source of omega-3 fatty acids.

Because of its purity and benefits, we decided to use Krill oil as the main ingredient of Neptune Krill Oil.

The Benefits of Taking Neptune Krill Oil

Why choose Neptune Krill Oil over other omega-3 supplements? Here are some of the reasons.

1. Much better bioavailability

Neptune Krill Oil's formula contains EPA and DHA bound to phospholipids instead of the common triglyceride bond. This makes Neptune Krill Oil's omega-3 fatty acids more bioavailable by up to 50% compared to ordinary fish oil supplements. *

2. Stronger antioxidant activity

Neptune Krill Oil contains high amounts of pure krill oil, a significant source of a potent antioxidant called astaxanthin. Astaxanthin is why krill oil has a relatively long shelf-life, as it protects krill oil from oxidation. The same antioxidant can also confer its antioxidant benefits to humans and may help maintain normal inflammatory responses and oxidation levels.

3. Can have more potent benefits than fish oil

Due to the purity of the krill oil present in Neptune Krill Oil, the benefits a person would get from a typical fish oil would be more potent. This has been observed by a few experts, especially when it comes to benefits for heart health, saying krill oil performs just as good as fish oil despite being offered in lower doses. *


Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for overall health, primarily because of how the body uses them in many basic functions and how the body is incapable of producing its own omega-3 supply.

When it comes to omega-3 supplements, fish oil is the most popular, but it's not the best. If you're looking for maximum potency and omega-3 purity, what you should be looking for is krill oil, the same ingredient we used to formulate our Neptune Krill Oil.
