  • About krill oil

  • Krill oil is made from a species of krill [Euphausia superba]. Two of the most important nutrients in krill oil are: (1) omega-3 fatty acids similar to those of fish oil and (2) Phospholipid-derived fatty acids (PLFA), mainly phosphatidylcholine (alternatively referred to as marine lecithin). Also, antioxidant experimental egg products with krill oil likely contained astaxanthin, a natural antioxidant. The fatty acid composition in the phospholipids in krill oil has been described in two papers.
    Several studies have shown toxic residues in Antarctic krill and fish.

    Krill oil vs. fish oil

    Considering the much higher price for krill oil, the potentially small increase in bioavailability may not be worth it. Until data exists comparing fish oil to krill oil on intermediate markers of risk and actual disease endpoints it will be difficult to say one is better than the other.
