Better than fish oil?

Better than Fish Oil

I started taking this supplement to help with my brain fog. I felt a little better, but I didn't know how much until I ran out!

That is often how I find out something is working. I think it is human nature... we notice when something is wrong, not when it is going right.

Which supplement was it?

Krill oil!

You may have heard of this new kid on the block, a substitute for fish oil. I just thought it was a less contaminated version of fish oil with a higher price tag.

What convinced me to try it?

~Krill oil is probably 48 times more potent than fish oil according to research. So you need less of it to reach effective levels.

~It contains phospholipids instead of triglycerides which means it can be much more easily absorbed, so it is not wasted in your gut (like fish oil, where you lose 70-80% of it), and it can be absorbed into your brain where you need it the most.

~It contains phosphatidylcholine, which is needed by your body to use Omega 3 (so it has to be added to fish oil by your liver), has vital precursors to neurotransmitters (brain signaling molecules), and is really important for brain development/healing.

~It resists oxidation or "going bad". Most fish oil is rancid by the time you get it into you an causing you harm. Krill oil has astaxanthin - which is one of the most potent antioxidants in nature, which keeps the oil fresh, and helps give you this powerful antioxidant in the process.

~It is not contaminated, because it comes from the Antarctic Ocean, and it is at the bottom of the food chain, so it doesn't build up contaminants like the larger fish do.

~It is environmentally sustainable since there is a huge biomass, and only 1-2 % of the biomass is harvested each year.

~It has a vastly superior effect to fish oil on your genes, enhancing glucose metabolism in your liver, promoting lipid metabolism, helping your mitochondria, and decrease cholesterol synthesis. In addition, it helps dozens of diseases.

You can see why I would be convinced to try it... I really felt it when I ran out! Now I take it faithfully every day, and have my kids on it too.

Below, I have shared Dr. Mercola's info graphic on Krill oil.
