Krill Oil Capsules | 500mg Softgels | Omega 3 Fatty Acids + Astaxanthin

  • Product Description


    What is Krill Oil?

    Krill Oil is a mixture of the omega 3 fatty acids Eicosapentaenoic Acid and Docosahexaenoic Acid. These fatty acids, otherwise known as EPA and DHA, are also found in fish oil supplements. However, because these fatty acids found in Krill Oil are in the form of phospholipids, most notably phosphatidylcholine, it is widely accepted that Krill Oil has improved bioavailability in comparison to that of standard fish oil supplements.

    The Krill Oil included in Nootropics Depot’s softgel is Neptune Krill Oil harvested from Euphausia Superba (Krill) found in the Antarctic Ocean. Neptune Krill Oil is a high quality Krill Oil certified sustainable by the Marine Stewardship Council, and follows sustainability guidelines set forth by Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources. This Neptune Krill Oil supplement includes essential Omega-3 fatty acids, high phospholipid content, as well as Astaxanthin.

    Nootropics Depot’s Krill Oil Capsules are non-GMO and USDA Organic.

    Krill Oil vs. Fish Oil: Which is Better?

    While both Krill Oil and Fish Oil provide the Omega 3 Fatty Acids known as DHA and EPA as well as other distinct benefits, Krill Oil is unique because of the following:

    • Bioavailability of Krill Oil: Krill Oil's omega 3 fatty acids are attached to phospholipids whereas Fish Oil's omega 3 fatty acids are attached to triglycerides. This means that Krill Oil is easier for our intestines to absorb. As a result, a smaller Krill Oil dosage is required for the same Omega 3 health benefits in comparison to that of Fish Oil.
    • Improved Taste of Krill Oil: Fish Oil is notorious for an unpalatable, fishy after-flavor. Generally, Krill Oil capsules are smaller and easier to swallow due to the smaller, necessary dosage.
    • Stability of Krill Oil: Krill Oil contains Astaxanthin, which may act as a natural free radical scavenger. This means that astaxanthin helps prevent spoiling. 
    • Purity of Krill Oil: Krill has a shorter lifespan and is harvested in the Antarctic ocean which is the cleanest ocean on the planet. Additionally, Krill is at the bottom of the food chain and feed off of phytoplankton instead of other fish that may have accumulated mercury or other potential toxins.
    • Sustainability of Krill Oil: It is estimated that only 1% of Krill are harvested each year making it considerably more sustainable than fish oil sources such as cod or salmon. In fact, the biomass of Krill is more than double than that of human beings. Moreover, the Antarctic krill population is highly monitored by The Commission for the Conservation of Antarctic Marine Living Resources (otherwise known as CCAMLR).

    1. Like combining this with ezmega3

      This krill oil is something I take every day. I like to combine it with ND's ezmega3 fish oil for the best of both worlds. on 24th Jul 2018

    2. Smells like a healthy saltwater aquarium imho

      In my humble opinion it smelled something from the sea upon first open, but not rancid fish oil. I've tried one other brand of krill oil, and opening that bottle didn't leave an impression. After using the ND krill oil over time however, the aquarium smell faded and only the smell of softgel filled bottle remained. on 1st Aug 2017

    3. Love everything from ND, but this

      The krill oil smelled pretty strongly of fish, which is generally isn't a good sign. I've been happy with everything from this company other than this. Not the worst krill oil I've had, but I probably won't get krill oil here again. Still really happy with the company as a whole.

      ND Admin: Krill oil naturally has a fishier smell than fish oil does. It does not mean it is rancid. All our fish oils are tested for peroxide values before we okay them for sale. They also contain astaxanthin, which protects them from oxidation.
