What is Krill Oil?
Krill are thumb-sized crustaceans floating in huge numbers within the ocean. They are eaten by whales, penguins, seals and fish. Krill Oil is extracted from these shrimp to make supplements which are full of omega-3s, omega-6, omega-6, antioxidants, beneficial lips and vitamins A, B, D, E and K. Omegas, antioxidants and vitamins all in one FDA approved supplement. Many who have taken fish oil and have sworn by its benefits are now switching to krill oil. Why? Omega-3s have been found to be vital and crucial if you are concerned about your heart health, if you find yourself getting sick frequently, or if your moods are out of balance.
Krill Oil Benefits
We all know that krill oil is loaded with omega-3′s. Omega 3′s have huge benefits when taken on a daily basis. Krill oil benefits can lower your cholesterol, protect your heart, ease menstrual symptoms, and reduce the risk of getting skin cancer. How awesome is it that you can take one pill and receive ALL of those benefits. Also, recent studies have proven that by taking krill oil you could possibly reduce your risk of getting the disease Alzheimer’s. We all know that no one likes getting old, so why not take a pill that could reduce your risk of memory loss and boost your brain function.
A Safe Source of Omega-3s
Omega-3 oils contain two fats important to your health: DHA and EPA. Simply eating fish will not provide enough of these healthy fats. Plus, eating too much fish puts you at risk for mercury, PCBs, heavy metals and even radioactive poisons–all things we like to avoid.
How bad has it become?
The FDA and EPA have issued warnings to young children, women who are pregnant, or who may become pregnant, and nursing mothers not to eat certain types of fish or shellfish as they pose a health risk. Think about the things the FDA and EPA allow us to eat! When they put out a warning, it should be taken seriously.

Customer Questions and Answers
Q: Where are krill found?
A: To quote the band Daft Punk, krill are found, “Around the world. Around the world.” Krill aren’t just in the ocean near Japan, these shrimp are found in ALL oceans. The name “krill” is actually Norwegian meaning “young fry of fish.” While found in all oceans, krill are mostly commercially fished in the waters surrounding Japan. In Japan krill is a real food, it is known as okiami. Like shrimp, the only part of krill that is eaten is the tail. It is said that the taste is salty and stronger than shrimp. They must be peeled before eating as their exoskeleton contains fluorides which can be toxic at high levels. Krill are widely known in the Asian region for its high omega-3 fatty content.
Q: What about fish oil? Isn’t that good for omegas too?
A: Absolutely, however, the main problem with fish oil is it is very low in antioxidants, so you will need to seek another supplement to boost your antioxidant intake. Why take two pills when you can get both and then some in one krill oil pill? Additionally, if the fish oil has been exposed to too much oxygen it can become rancid. Fish oil, after all, is perishable, pure and simple.
Q: Does krill oil go rancid like fish oil?
A: Actually, no. The key is the antioxidants. They help so the krill oil doesn’t oxidize and when you oxidize, that leads to the creation of free radicals and that’s bad stuff.
Q: Is krill oil ethical and environmentally sustainable?
A: Yes, krill oil is ethical and environmentally sustainable. There is a limited amount of harm done to ecosystems when harvesting krill. Wildlife studies have shown that krill are one of the largest groups of fish in the world.
Q: Is this organic?
A: A quality krill oil product that is pure and safe is often what consumers are looking for when they ask if an organic krill oil is available. In truth, no krill oil is organic. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) determines which foods can be considered organic. Seafood is not on that list yet. We guarantee that our high quality krill oil will meet your standards. It is produced under strict quality controls in a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved facility that is certified Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP).
Q: Is this product kosher?
A: Krill are crustaceans and because of this is not kosher certified.
Q: Is this vegan or vegetarian?
A: For our vegan friends who want to improve brain function and reduce the risk of dementia, we suggest our plant-based Memory Hero for brain health.
Q: Can zinc and krill oil be taken together?
A: Yes. Most people think of zinc as something take to decrease the length of a cold or improve the immune system. It is a mineral naturally found in foods like beans, clams, lobster, oysters, poultry and red meat. The recommended daily value (RDA) for zinc is 11 mg for adult males and 8 mg for adult females.
Q: Are krill high in purines?
A: Purines are part of every cell in your body. When they break down, excess uric acid is created. The kidneys step in and break down the uric acid, kicking it out of the body through the bladder. We also intake purines from food. It makes sense that the higher the purines in food that are introduced to the body, the more uric acid will be created. High purine foods include bacon, beef, kidneys, lamb, liver, pork and seafood.
Whole krill, prior to being purified, are high in purines. After purification; however, krill oil does not pose a problem for most people. If you have gout, kidney problems or a family history of either, consult your doctor before adding krill oil.
Q: Are krill high in iodine?
A: Krill contains iodine. Your skin, salivary glands, muscles, brain, thyroid, and women’s breasts all need iodine. It also regulates your metabolism through the thyroid, synthesizes hormones and supports skeletal and brain function. A lack of iodine can lead to goiters, hypothyroidism, and certain forms of cancers.
Q: Is krill oil high in omega 3s?
A: Yes, krill oil is packed with the goodness of not only omega-3, but omega-6 and omega-9 in addition to antioxidants and beneficial lipids.
Q: Does krill have vitamins?
A: Does it contain vitamin D? Yes, krill naturally contains vitamin D.
Does it contain vitamin A? Vitamin A naturally occurs in krill oil.
Does it have B12, E, or K? Yes, you will find vitamins B, E and K in krill oil.
Q: Are antioxidants in krill oil?
A: Yes. Did you know that your body naturally produces free radicals as well as the antioxidants to counteract their damaging behavior, however, most people’s bodies produce more free radicals than antioxidants…and that’s a real problem. Krill oil contains antioxidants which help balance this great shift in your body to allow your body to get rid of the free radicals.
There are different antioxidants for different parts of the body. For example, beta-carotene takes care of your eye health; lycopene keeps your prostate in check; flavonoids take care of your heart; and proanthocyanidins keep your urinary tract system in top shape. Fish oil does NOT contain antioxidants so you will have to go to other modes to get the antioxidants your body needs to maintain your complete health, or turn to krill oil, which has both omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants too.
Q: Is krill oil dangerous?
A: Only if you have an allergy, other than that, it is pure awesomeness that your body will love you for. Please also see our drug interactions section.
Q: Does it contain mercury?
A: We take every measure to ensure our krill oil does not contain mercury. However, due to the way our oceans our polluted, often there is some mercury which seeps in. Based on government levels of allowed mercury, our levels are FAR below. We care about your health and our health and our goal is always zero mercury.
Q: Does this contain pure omega 3? Omega 6? Omega K?
A: Don’t be confused by the term “Omega K.” It is a nickname for krill oil. Krill oil contains omegas 3, 6, and 9. Since it contains a variety of omegas and beneficial phospholipids, which fish oil can’t match, krill oil often referred to as “Super Omega” or “Omega K.”
Q: How quickly does it work?
A: This greatly depends on you (we know you hate to hear that, but you know it is true). Every person is different and their chemical make up has a lot to do with how soon you will see and/or feel the positive effects of krill oil. Our test groups averaged 3-5 days and really could tell a difference after two weeks.
Q: Does krill oil expire?
A: Every supplement expires. Nothing is good forever. Well, there is honey. Krill oil is very stable and can last up to two years. Of course you won’t have it nearly that long, a month or two tops if you’re using it to get healthy, so there are no worries of it going bad anytime soon. Just like fish oil it will eventually go bad and get rancid. Because krill oil contains antioxidants and fish oil does not, fish oil will go bad and rancid FASTER than krill oil especially if it is exposed to too much oxygen, which is why we recommend putting the supplement in the freezer.
Q: Does it need to be refrigerated?
A: Our Krill Oil does not need to be refrigerated, however, we recommend that if you are sensitive to fish or things with an “odor” as this one obviously does since it is made from fish, that you put it in the freezer. Why? By freezing it, it is heavier than normal and will sink to the bottom of your stomach and it will be less straining on you if you have a sensitive stomach and also will take care of “fish burps,” even though those are highly unlikely with our product.
Q: Does it need to be taken with food?
A: Our krill oil is specially formulated to be kind to even the most sensitive of stomachs. If you find that you have some stomach discomfort, take with a meal, or freeze the supplement. Either option should greatly improve any problems you feel.
Q: Is it safe for diabetics?
A: If you have Type 2 diabetes, fish oil may increase your fasting sugar level. Do not take without consulting your doctor or endocrinologist first. We always advise our diabetic customers to get the advice and counsel from their doctors before using our products.
Q: Does it affect cholesterol or blood pressure?
A: Studies and tests have proven that krill oil can lower cholesterol and blood pressure. Since it contains HDL, which remember, is the “good” cholesterol it has been proven effective. A few of our customers have reported back saying that after taking our krill oil, their triglycerides were reported lower in their lab work. Don’t you think taking something all natural would be better for your body than a prescription medication?
Krill benefits for women:
Q: Yeast infections?
A: Studies and tests have shown no link between krill oil and yeast infections.
Q: Pregnancy and breastfeeding?
A: If you are pregnant, or think you may become pregnant or if you are breast feeding, don’t take this product without consulting your doctor.
Q: Fibroids and heavy menstrual cycles?
A: Some women who suffer heavy menstrual periods due to fibroids find that omega-3s help relieve symptoms. A clinical study conducted at the University of Montreal using a branded krill oil concluded that it can significantly reduce dysmenorrhea, a gynecological medical condition characterized by severe uterine pain during menstruation, and the emotional symptoms of premenstrual syndrome.
Q: Lower estrogen?
A: In some studies, krill oil was proven to balance out hormones.
A: Studies and tests show no benefits to the ills of menopause.
Krill benefits for men
A: After exhaustive tests, no increase in testosterone or libido was reported.
Q: What are known krill oil side effects?
A: While every person is different, and each person will report different experiences, the following has been compiled from our testing and also feedback from our customers.
Nausea – a few customers have responded that it gave them nausea, but when they froze the Krill Oil their nausea went away. This was the case both with food and on an empty stomach.
Upset stomach – this is more of pain and discomfort rather than a feeling of wanting to vomit. Let’s face it, no one wants any of those feelings. The same solution with nausea (freezing the supplement) worked with upset stomachs too. Taking your supplement with oatmeal may also help with this.
Urine odor – no “asparagus” syndrome here that has been reported and all testing groups were fine.
Urine color – we have had some customers and one person in a test group report that their urine turned a brighter color than usual. However, this person also said that happens when they take a multivitamin too.
Does it give you gas? – 40% of our testing group, mostly men, reported more gas than usual. This, of course, was not reported by them, but their wives or girlfriends.
Cause Constipation or Diarrhea? – based on our testing and customer feedback, this has not occurred.
Cause Bruising? – no reporting of bruising occurring, although, the opposite should occur with the omega-3 fats that will greatly improve the radiance of the skin and give a healthy glow. Since the skin is more healthy, it should bruise less easily.
Bad Breath – nothing has been reported, but if you chew on the soft gel it isn’t going to taste good and will give you bad breath, so just swallow it. Now, if you experience the “fish burps” which some do, just take our tip and freeze the supplement and it will solve it!
Give you Heartburn – none reported. However, if you do have heartburn, we recommend not using an ant-acid, instead, take a capful of white vinegar. Your issue is often not too much acid but not enough. This usually cures your heartburn immediately. Track the foods you are eating around the time you take the supplement and make adjustments as it is often a food combination causing it with your chemical make up. Oatmeal will coat the stomach well, and try not to lie down within a half hour after taking your supplement.
Keep you awake – we have actually had the exact opposite reports from our customers that they have experienced better sleep patterns and waking up more refreshed.
Q: What is astaxanthin?
A: Astaxanthin is a supplement that is derived from several different plants. Studies have proven that astaxanthin is an antioxidant that is actually more potent than Vitamin C. You know how when you have a cold or a cough someone tells you to drink your Vitamin C? Well, by taking astaxanthin you are actually getting a higher level of antioxidant, which will cause you to feel better faster.
Q: What is EPA, HDL, RDA, and DHA?
A: EPA: EPA actually stands for eicosapentaenoic acid. It’s an acid that can be actually be found in the flesh of cold water fish. Studies and tests have proven it has multiple benefits, such as, treating wounds, psoriasis, and reducing the risk of heart attack.
A: HDL: You might have heard HDL called the “good” cholesterol, and it’s true. It actual flows through your bloodstream and gets rid of the “bad” cholesterol. Having higher levels of HDL can reduce your risk of stroke and heart attack.
A: RDA: RDA is the recommended daily allowance of how many nutrients your body takes in per day. To get your daily recommended dosage of EPA and DHA, krill oil is very beneficial.
A: DHA: DHA is an abbreviation for a big, long word called Docosahexaenoic Acid. DHA is derived from the meat of cold water fish. It has been linked to helping dementia and ADHD.
Q: Will krill oil help arthritis?
A: Studies show that krill oil helps combat inflammation and may help relieve the symptoms of arthritis. In one study, 30 percent of participants reported a reduction in joint pain. A double blind study conducted in Canada tested the effects of Neptune Krill Oil (NKO) on arthritic symptoms. The results showed that a short treatment of 300 mg daily of NKO significantly reduces arthritic symptoms and prevents inflammation. However, we have seen no proof of this from our testing or from customer feedback. If you suffer from joint pain and take NSAIDs to reduce inflammation, we strongly suggest our Joint Pain Relief formula.
Q: What is the difference between fish oil and krill oil?
A: The main difference is krill oil contains antioxidants and phospholipids which fish oil does not. Phospholipids are important to both structural and functional roles in the body. They are one of the most important molecules in your body. Krill also tends to have a lower fat content than fish oil.
Q: Is krill oil better than fish oil supplements?
A: Based on the fact that krill has antioxidants and beneficial lipids the answer is going to be “yes,” but keep in mind the side effects which fish oil does not have. It is predicated upon what the person is willing to put up with in order to get the benefits they desire. Why choose? Taking both krill and fish oil at the same time are beneficial.
Q: What about for brain function like memory boosts, ADHD, or depression?
A: Yes, studies have shown that krill oil is linked to improving memory, ADHD, and depression. The DHA found in krill oil is one of the main ingredients that helps boost brain functions.
Q: Is it safe to take with nootropics?
A: If you are currently on nootropics, we have had a large group take krill oil with their nootropics stack without a problem.
Q: Any visual or eye health improvements?
A: None that has been detected or reported from our customers. However, it’s important to note that both Krill oil and the human eye contain omega 3 phospholipids and Astaxanthin. For this reason, many optometrists recommend krill oil for eye health.
Q: Can I take both fish oil and krill oil together?
A: You can and you will achieve the benefits of both, our fish oil supplement is awesome!
Q: Will omega 3 krill oil raise blood sugar?
A: Taking any fish oil may increase your fasting blood sugar level if you have Type 2 diabetes, so be sure to consult with your doctor before taking this or any fish oil.

A: Krill oil is all natural, therefore, it’s usually safe for anyone to take. However, if you are under 18 years old, we recommend talking with your physician or pediatrician before beginning any supplement.
Q: Will krill oil affect acne, eczema, or psoriasis?
A: Some studies have proven that krill oil can help with psoriasis, acne and eczema. We actually had a customer tell us the other day that since taking krill oil, she has seen less redness in the areas she is prone to psoriasis. As for acne and eczema, we haven’t heard any feedback saying either way.
Q: Is it known to cause rashes?
A: We have not seen any evidence that krill oil causes rashes.
Q: Does krill oil have a bad smell?
A: Absolutely. After all, this is fish we are talking about. It has an odor and it independent tests 9 out of 10 people surveyed said, “That stinks!” The one person was suffering from allergies and was so stuffed up she “couldn’t smell anything if a dirty diaper was shoved in her face.” Her words, not ours. I would be concerned if a krill oil did NOT smell.
Q: Does krill oil taste fishy?
A: Our staff and testing groups did not report it “tasting fishy” but to their credit, none of them chewed the supplement, they all swallowed it. If you are concerned with it “tasting fishy” do the recommendation above and put the bottle in the freezer.
Q: What dosage of krill oil is recommended?
A: For adults, Vita-Web recommends taking one soft gel per day. This provides 500 mg per day. There is no established standard on how much you can take, or a maximum dosage, but 500 mg naturally provides a good balance of Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9. It’s best to take krill supplements with a meal.
Q: What are the known drug interactions of krill oil?
A: Interact with any medications – if you take anticoagulants or have a blood coagulation disorder do not use krill oil. If you have diabetes, gout or kidney problems, consult your doctor before taking. If you are on any medications, pregnant or breastfeeding, you should go see your doctor to discuss any possible interactions. Krill oil is gentle, but we don’t believe in taking any chances with one’s health. Be smart, call your doctor.

A: Not at all, as many of our customers are on the paleo diet.
Q: How do they make krill oil supplements? What is the extraction process?
A: Krill are harvested in large amounts. There are literally millions to billions of krill that swim the Earth. Once the krill are harvested, they must immediately be frozen. By freezing the krill, it maintains all of their nutrients and antioxidants. After they are frozen, a cold vacuum process is used to protect and remove the Omega-3’s. Once the nutrients are removed, the remainder of the krill is made into “krill meal”, which is often used as fish food, and some cultures even use it to cook with.
Q: Are these capsules, tablets, or gummies?
A: These are soft gels which are easy to swallow. They look pretty cool too.
Q: What about liquid form?
A: Our krill oil is not in liquid form. We use soft gel capsules. They are well digested when taken.
Q: Is krill oil safe to take with a joint pain relief supplement?
A: Studies and tests have proven that krill oil is better than taking over the counter or prescription medications, because it is all natural. That being said, if you get relief from your joint pain supplement, but would like to add a little extra relief, krill oil would certainly help. There have been no proven tests that prevent you from taking them together. However, like before, you need to consult with your physician before combining any medication/supplement.
Q: Can krill oil help weight loss?

A: There is no evidence that Krill Oil is a diuretic. However, if you are currently prescribed to a diuretic, talk with your doctor before beginning any diet supplement.
Q: Does krill oil help hair loss?
A: Krill oil is famous for containing Omega-3’s. Omega-3’s play a huge part in keeping hair, skin, and nails healthy. This also aids in keeping the scalp healthy. So, if your scalp is healthy and doesn’t dry it out, new hair follicle cells can grow. Which, in return, grows new hair.
Q: What does krill oil have to do with iodine?
A: So, you know if you go to the hospital to have a scan done, and they tell you to let them know if you are allergic to iodine or shellfish? Well, that’s because the contrast dye they use for the scan contains this. The same goes for krill oil. Shellfish contain iodine, and since krill are actually shrimps twin, you have to be very careful when taking the supplement if you have a shellfish or iodine allergy. Be sure to consult with your doctor before beginning krill oil, if this is the case. Don’t be afraid of iodine, it’s extremely beneficial to our bodies.
Q: Will krill oil help IBS – irritable bowel syndrome?

A: Keratosis pilaris is a skin condition that causes bumps and rough areas of skin on your body. Some people call them liver spots. Typically they are found on upper arms and thighs. Once again, those handy EPA and DHA come into play. Since krill oil contains both of them, it is effective in helping with Keratosis pilaris.
Q: What affect does krill oil have on kidneys and liver?
A: Krill oil is extremely easy to digest and metabolize. As far as your liver is concerned, the Omega-3’s can actually help reduce a fatty liver. Since you can digest and metabolize it so easily, it’s been shown in studies, that it can significantly help your liver.
Shell fish is naturally high in purines which can cause a buildup in uric acid, which can cause kidney stones. However, krill are purified when harvested, and therefore, most of the purines are left behind and not seen in the oil. Most people do not have a problem with this. If you have kidney disease, or a history of kidney stones, consult with your doctor before beginning krill oil.

A: There is no proven evidence that krill oil, alone, will detox the body. A true detox is a two-step process and involves more than a supplement or pill.

Q: Is krill oil farmed from fish?
A: Krill oil is harvested from the shellfish, krill. So yes, it is farmed from fish. For those of you worried about the poor little fish, it has been proven that if you weighed the human race, krill would double its weight. So, I don’t think we will be running out anytime soon. Not to mention, once the oil is harvested the remainder of the fish is used as fish food, and in some cultures, used for cooking.
