I have heard so many great things about krill oil that I was really excited to try it! Because of my various health concerns I knew I could really benefit from it. Looking more into it I learned the benefits far surpass fish oil, which is a supplement I take regularly, so I was eager to see the different! Like with any supplement, though, I know they are not all equal. Everest Nutrition Krill Oil has a pretty impressive background! It is extracted from Krill living deep within the waters surrounding the Antarctic.
So what’s so special about Krill Oil?*
Research from the scientific and medical communities confirms the incredible effects this oil can have in promoting heart and joint health, lowered cholesterol, improved moods and comfort during menstruation. Why is that important to me? Because I have ALL of those issues. I was born with a heart defect I had repaired when I was a teenager, so I definitely like to take care of my heart. I often have joint discomfort. I have a family history of high cholesterol, and by the time I was a teenager I already had high cholesterol (people found it hard to believe because I was thin, but cholesterol problems can be genetic). And yes, mood swings and my generic term “women issues” are extremely bad. So, you can imagine when I saw the health benefits of krill oil I about sprang out of my seat! Another big thing for me is taking the minimum amount of supplements needed to feel good. Who wants to take a handful of pills and capsules every day? I surely don’t! So if there is one supplement that can cover a broader area it is definitely on my “need to try it” list! And that is just the tip of the iceberg!
I recently received Everest Nutrition Krill Oil for review but have only been taking it for a few days, so I can’t attest to long term effects as of now. With any supplement I think you definitely need to take them for at least a few weeks to truly reap the full benefits. I have felt a general sense of being more alert, though, which is great! I love that they are so easy to take. I even noticed the capsules are made from Tilapia (fish) and not some synthetic gelatin. That really impresses me! That is the one thing I dislike about supplements because they have benefits, but then they put it in a synthetic capsule! I also appreciated that it did not give me that nasty fish taste that I get with fish oil. So if the benefits are better than fish oil and I don’t get the horrible aftertaste that goes along with taking fish oil, to me that is definitely a win-win situation! I am excited to continue taking the krill oil long term!
