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.

Not better than fish oil

I'm a big fan of NOW Foods DHA 500, it has 750mg of omega 3 per enteric coated fish oil gel. It has a wonderful effect on my chronic inflammation. This krill oil product didn't do anything for me. In those 3 days of that trial period, I started having pain again in my joints. So it's worthless, comparing to fish oil. visit my page for more reviews

With just 50 cents these are fairly cheap for a krill oil product. I wouldn't pay the regular price. Softgels are really hard. I've seen better quality.

Krill is an excellent supplement for anyone with joint issues. 2 per day will keep creaky joints away!
