Why would I take krill oil?

Have you seen the latest research that fish oil can cause prostate cancer? However, it appears it was just a study that can’t actually prove cause-and-effect but the moment an idea is proposed the media has to proclaim it loud and clear in as scary of manner as possible.

The pill you take every day could lead to your death. We’ll tell you what it is at 11.

Anyway, there is still ample research that says omega 3’s are good for various issues in the body. Whether that comes from eating a lot of fish, taking fish oil pills or supplementing in some other way (at the Healthy Beverage Expo I had a drink that supplies omega 3’s!), it could still be beneficial.

I was sent a bottle of Everest Nutrition Krill Oil a little while ago. Although, now they’ve been acquired by Viva Labs, so it’s a different name in the few short months since it arrived in my house and ended up on the blog!

I took the bottle in place of my fish oil pills… and I can definitely tell you, I never got fishy burps from them! It’s hard to review pills, because most of the time I don’t feel any difference. I just take them on the blind faith and article reading that the contents will have some kind of benefit. Of course, I do find that my joints seem crunchier when I’m not taking them for a while. So for that reason, I find it beneficial for me and for my running.

So what are the benefits of krill oil?

Even though it says those items on the bottle, I learned those benefits of krill oil via Consumer Reports before I received the product. I thought it was a funny irony that it basically mirrored the bottle’s claims.

But Consumer Reports also says that people should be able to get the health benefits by eating fatty fish twice a week. If you don’t like fish, you would probably want to consider adding a fish oil or krill oil supplement. I’ve also heard that freezing fish oil pills can reduce the fishiness associated with the supplement.
