This krill oil is great. Doesn't taste fishy. However, it would b better if there was enough for a full week or two, to really tell the difference.
Convinient to take

Gives me a good Onega
Hace daño al tragarlas
Posted by 5158137019636245318 on Jul 22, 2014
No puedo valorar mucho el efecto porque con solo 6 piezas es imposible. Pero solo por el dolor que me produce al tragarlas no las recomiendo. Es una pastilla rígida y muy gordita. He probado otras que son capsulas de gel rellenas con el aceite que son suaves al tragar. Realmente no sé de que están recubiertas estas, aunque pone que son "softgels"

I have been taking these for about a month now and found that they do not have a fishy taste like so many others I have used.

I'm not sure if 6 softgels qualify me to rate this. Got it as a trial product. Ok.
Contains ethyl cellulose, sodium alginate, ammonium hydroxide, and stearic acid.

Generally, krill oil is a great product: it has higher concentrations of eicosapentaenoic polyunsaturated fatty acid and astaxanthin, a keto-carotenoid and powerful antioxidant, than fish oil and, as a result of this, is more effective in treating heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, obesity, arthritis, osteoporosis, neurodegenerative conditions, Alzheimer's disease, attention disorders, cystic fibrosis, stress, anxiety and depression. It boosts the immune system, helps stabilize blood sugar and regulate insulin levels, prevents blood sugar spikes, normalizes blood pressure, lowers triglycerides and LDL or "bad" cholesterol levels while increasing HDL or "good" cholesterol, supports the liver function, protects against strokes, atherosclerosis and peripheral arterial disease, reduces inflammation, helps maintain healthy joints, bones and teeth, relives stress, and even reduces the risk of cancer. But this krill oil is not the type of krill oil I would buy. It contains ethyl cellulose, sodium alginate, ammonium hydroxide, and stearic acid. Ethyl cellulose is a binder and viscosity increasing agent suspected to be a human toxicant and allergen. Ammonium hydroxide is a denaturant and pH-adjuster known to be a persistent and bioaccu mulative human toxicant, allergen, skin irritant and carcinogen. Sodium alginate is a thickener and flavor enhancer which may potentially lead to hypertension, calcium deficiency, and heart disease. Stearic acid is most likely to be animal derived (since it's not specified that it's plant derived) and may be neurotoxic and carcinogenic. Definitely not a supplement you would recommend.

Contain higher Astaxathin
Posted by brownrice on Apr 18, 2014
I saw this product contains more natural astaxanthin, so I wanted to try it.

Omega-3 is vital for depression and many other brain functions. This seems to be working without any issues at taking 3 grams- fish oil gave me indigestion but this one doesn't and supposedly absorbs better than fish oil. No soy? Even better. Thanks iHerb.com and H.O. for providing this sample.
