Increasing your essential fatty acid intake, DHA and EPA, research suggests, could be effective at improving cholesterol levels and other risk factors for heart disease.
And these essential fatty acids can be found in fish oil.
But they are not fully ABSORBED by your body, therefore robbing your body of the potential HEALTH BENEFITS.
Krill oil, on the other hand, has the potential to be better absorbed by your body, possibly increasing your fatty acid levels in your blood.
Let me explain…
Krill Powerful Antioxidants
The structure of fish oil and Krill oil are different.
DHA and EPA found in fish oil are bound by a triglyceride backbone.
But the problem: The EPA and DHA, some studies suggest, is NOT FULLY absorbed by your body.
In fact, it can be excreted by your intestines, leaving you with very little EPA and DHA in your blood.
The EPA and DHA that is left is then transported to your liver where it is further processed and bound to choline.
This could allow the EPA and DHA to travel through your body and enter into your cells.
There is, and this could be the most overwhelming difference between Krill oil and Fish oil.
The difference in the structural makeup makes Krill oil far SUPERIOR.
Krill oil is attached to a phospholipid backbone.
And if you remember anything from biology, you should recall that your cells contain a phospholipid structure.
This could allow easier transport of DHA and EPA your cell.
Krill oil already contains CHOLINE and ASTAXANTHIN in its structure.
This has the potential to allow for better absorption by your body.
This could also prevent FISH BURPS, which you might commonly expect from fish oil.
But be careful, krill and fish oil may equally be rancid.
The one drawback to both krill and fish oil is how it is harvested and manufactured.
If your krill or fish oil have been sitting in barrels for long periods of time, or if improperly handled, this can actually cause degradation of your product.
And no antioxidant has the ability to prevent rancidity.
So if you have ever experienced fish burps after taking your fish oil supplement, then you should look into a new supplement.
Look for a product that has passed stringent testing procedures and manufacturing processes.
Let me explain a little bit further about the power of CHOLINE and ASTAXANTHIN…
Astaxanthin is a powerful antioxidant.
It is normally found at the end of EPA molecule.
EPA is one of the fatty acids found in both Krill oil and fish oil.
However, Astaxanthin is NATURALLY found in Krill Oil.
Some clinical studies show that Astaxanthin could prevent EPA and DHA from breaking down and becoming rancid.
This could just be the BIGGEST advantage Krill oil has over fish oil.
Fish oil lacks this powerful antioxidant, which could lead to a breakdown of the fatty acids.
Krill oil also packs a powerful punch with OTHER POWERFUL antioxidants.
Krill oil naturally contains vitamin A, E, and D, plus Astaxanthin.
One way to determine how POWERFUL these antioxidants are is by assessing the ORAC value of the product.
ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorpance Capacity.
It determines how powerful antioxidants are at destroying reactive oxygen species (ROS), or better known as free radicals.
Krill oil, according to research, can be 47 TIMES MORE POWERFUL than fish oil at stopping free radicals.
There are many research studies discussing the power of omega-3 fatty acids and your health.
And there are studies regarding the power of Krill oil and your health.
Even though Krill oil has lower levels of EPA and DHA, it ABSORBS more rapidly and could provide more benefit than regular fish oil.
In fact, one study could provide PROOF that krill is more effective.
Researchers in Norway wanted to assess the benefits of both Krill and Fish oil on certain health parameters.
The study looked at 115 people with normal, or slightly elevated. cholesterol and triglyceride levels.
They were placed in a placebo group (no pills), a fish oil group, or a krill oil group.
They ingested six Krill oil capsules or three fish oil capsules (depending on the group) daily for seven weeks.
In the groups receiving the supplements, they noticed a SIGNIFICANT increase in blood concentrations of EPA and DHA.
However, there was no statistical difference in the changes to blood lipid profiles in either group.
Both Krill oil and fish oil were effective at reducing markers for oxidative stress and inflammation.
However, even though Krill oil contained 62.8% LESS EPA and DHA, they found it to be more EFFECTIVE and POWERFUL than fish oil.
In another study, researchers wanted to assess which could reduce liver triglyceride levels more effectively.
They fed rats a diet enriched with 2.5% Krill oil or 2.5% fish oil.
They found the Krill oil diets lowered hepatic triglyceride levels and cholesterol more effectively than the diets with fish oil.
So can you now see the POWER of Krill oil?
The Power of Krill
There is no doubt you need more omega-3 fatty acids in your diet.
As a whole, we consume more omega-6 fatty acids than we do omega 3’s.
The meats you consume, chances are, could be fed a combination of corn and soy feed, which has the potential to increase omega-6 fatty acid levels, therefore altering your omega-3 to omega-6 ratio.
High levels of omega-6 fatty acids, research suggests, could increase inflammation, which could lead to a host of chronic diseases.
Finding a good animal or marine source of omega-3 fatty acids has been shown to be more beneficial to your health.

A diet methodology that claimed to maximise fat loss while simultaneously allowing periods of anabolism ultimately proved too hard to resist to my senses. The catch-22 scenario was that it went against all conventional wisdom within the bodybuilding & fitness community. Needless to say, it seemed as though it was destiny for me to [...]
