Krill oil contains fatty acids similar to fish oil. These fats are thought to be beneficial fats that decrease swelling, lower cholesterol, and make blood platelets less sticky. When blood. If you have a family history of heart disease, are currently combating, or looking to prevent high blood pressure or high cholesterol, then krill oil may be for you. The optimal krill oil supplement contains at least 40% phospholipids as measured by total oil weight and at.

Krill oil and oceanic fish oil are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, mainly eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). While both contain some EPA and DHA as free fatty acids, krill oil contains particularly rich amounts of choline-containing phospholipids and a phosphatidylcholine concentration of 34 grams per 100 grams of oil. Krill oil also contains appreciable content of astaxanthin at 0.1 to 1.5 mg/mL depending on processing methods, and is responsible for its red color.

Krill Oil has also been used to treat high blood pressure, stroke, cancer, osteoarthritis, depression and premenstrual syndrome (PMS), although high quality studies with adequately sized populations validating these uses are lacking. Patients should speak with. Krill oil comes from krill, tiny shrimp-like creatures that live in very cold ocean waters. Studies show that krill oil might have health benefits similar to those of fish oil. Why do people take.

Fish oil supplements are widely used, yet large capsule sizes and tolerability make them less than ideal. Recently, krill oil has emerged as a potential alternative for omega-3 supplementation. This article will discuss what is known about krill oil and its potential use.

Krill oil is often used for the same reasons as fish oil: to improve heart health and fight inflammation. Krill oil is used as a health supplement for heart disease, high levels of certain blood fats (triglycerides), high cholesterol, high blood pressure, stroke, cancer, osteoarthritis, depression, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and painful menstrual periods. Listed below are some of the popular health benefits of Krill Oil 1.

According to the Cleveland Clinic, animal studies have shown krill oil improves DHA absorption and DHA delivery to the brain. This means less krill oil is. Krill oil is known as a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids but also contains a lesser-known component that provides a wide variety of health benefits.

That component, which sets krill oil from fish oil and other sources of omega-3s is astaxanthin.

List of related literature:

While sea animals consume marine algae, which contain long-chain omega-3 fatty acids and thus serve as a source of omega-3 oils, algal oils such as DHASCO (DHA single cell oil), among others, may also be produced by fermentation processes (Senanayake & Fichtali 2006).

  • @micahe There are not shellfish in krill. Krill is a crustacean and is a type of shellfish and should be avoided with those who have shellfish allergies

  • I love facts and the science part of it; however, it’s too much information for me in just 11 minutes. Thank you anyway. I’ll have to watch it again hahahahaha

  • I just started taking nordic naturals cod liver oil. I’m so worried about overdosing on vitamin A, so I only take a 1/2 teaspoon. I’m hoping to improve my skin..idk if I’m helping it or hurting myself or what, but I’m going for one more week and then I’ll see.��

  • Nearly ALL the krill oil supplements contain almost no DHA or EPA.
    You need a minimum of 250mg and these pills contain 25-50mg per 1000mg pill…
    USELESS.
    Bio-available?!
    Do you really want to take 20 pills per day!!

  • Search for omega 3, get superficial nonsense…
    Search for Rhonda Patrick omega 3, get more than you bargained for…damn, she knows her shit…I love how she just pa pa pam drops data that’s not open to interpretation…

  • Thank you for helping me find an alternative to the otherwise heavy metal polluted fish oil, tho John Dotz/Alexander from Fast Life Hacks, who listed supplements you took and take now and it seems you switched from Krill oil to Norwegian fish oil and now taking Salmon roe instead? Why? Or has anyone seen why?

  • WOW so informative! Your my new bff Doc.! 4real!!! Each video feels like a class! We should all be donating to you for sharing your ever increasing knowledge! Alittle fast for me but I’m catching up…thank you Doc.

  • Who gives you permission for killing the Krills. Stop it. and don’t try to disturb the Food chain of Species. Save Nature Save Earth.

  • They say fish oil is cholenergic and might cause depression in some individuals who are choline sensitive. I’d love to hear thoughts about it.

  • 1:59 “Krill oil contains a unique antioxidant that’s not found in fish oil.” (Astaxanthin) I’m confused by this because this antioxidant is in fact found in Pacific salmon. The salmon derived fish oil supplement that I take does contain astaxanthin. The brand is New Chapter.

  • So, what do you suggest a person who is allergic to fish and shellfish take in place of krill oil to get their DHA and omega fatty acids?!

  • Krill oil is superior, does not go rancid. Krill has benefits, fish oils do not have at all. https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2012/06/21/krill-oil-radically-better-than-fish-oil.aspx

  • I have a crushing amount of inflammation in my brain, from a stroke 5 years ago. What is your advice for getting rid of it? Thank you. Ed

  • Wish I had a dr this good!! My dr isn’t this energetically informative.!! Especially regarding supplements he likes prescribing drugs Over Admitting there’s Great natural alternatives.!!

  • This is a fantastic video. Very well thought out, thorough, yet still concise. Everything is explained well. Just a great production.+1 subscriber. Keep up this kind of content!

  • Can you take Krill Oil if you are allergic to shellfish. I take fish out at the moment and I am allergic to Shellfish; any advice?

  • What safeguards or standards are in place to confirm the quality of the commercially available Krill oil? Are the studies done with oil prepared expressly for the study or were they done with commercially available brands? If the latter, what were the brands used in the studies?

  • I use both that’s right I buy fish and krill oil I take 2000 mg of fish and 2000 mg of krill oil a day take one tablet of each in the morning and one tablet of each before bed. I kept hearing about the health benefits in arguments which one was better and I thought screw it I’ll just take both. And here’s the results I think I’m getting from taking both 1 my joints feel really good and I work out and I have a job where are my feet all the time as of right now we’re going to Walmart walking on hard floor. 2 my cholesterol level I’ve had a check its finds perfect 3 I think it affects my memory skills I really do because I can remember a lot of things well. Like facts trivia things like that. And I think drinking this much fish and krill oil throughout my twenties 30s 40s 50s 60s throughout my life. Might preserve my eyesight cuz I have 20/20 help keep my mind sharp so I don’t become a forgetful senior citizen. Am I doing this for advertisement but the Brand’s I use or GMC products I know a little bit more expensive but I figure I can trust the GMC name more than Spring Valley cheap Walmart brand fish oil and krill oil.

  • Great. You get to have a sip of water after this. How could any partner of yours beat you in an argument when you can fire off the facts like that? You would make a great barrister

  • I love facts and the science part of it; however, it’s too much information for me in just 11 minutes. Thank you anyway. I’ll have to watch it again hahahahaha

  • or cut out the middle fish and get a Alge oil or Ahiflower seed oil
    i just had my levels tested and i was on the higher normal range…so it metabolizes well

  • Dr. Patrick, May I ask, which brand/manufactory of Krill Oil do you personally take?
    I know that all Krill Oil is not manufacture equally. I’m looking for a Manufactory that has preferably a third party testing, one that has a relatively high dosage of Omega 3 Oil including both DHA & EPA.

  • I like that you were on Dr. Oz with this. I was telling myself that this is awesome some great health professors are making it mainstream. Also I’m not usually this type of guy but I loved the way you (subtly) shut down that other lady on the Dr. Oz show. when talking about fish and krill oil.

  • hello dear Ryan, I am from bangladesh, I am a little youtuber. I like your channel. Can you please tell me, is this voice over is real or computer vocal? this voice is awesome. thanks.

  • Hi Ryan. Thank you so much for all your great health advice and education. I have a message I would like to share with you too. This may sound a bit out there, but it is true and important. If you sing to the Sun of love and thanks, the Sun will answer you with stronger healing rays. It is truly miraculous, divine. The more you do, the more you will see, our life giving, LIVING light. Thank you again. With light and love always������

  • @RepentanceIsKey you can but typically not necessary to take both, usually one or the other and I strongly believe that krill is the better choice.

  • I take http://www.infowars.com krill oil, it is way more effective for me. Also, the antioxidant in krill is rare and important because it is the antioxidant that best blocks the UV damage of the crystalline lens in our eyes. Its the only antioxidant we talked about in college.

  • Bioglan Red Krill Oil 1000mg. Twice daily and My Protein Omega balance. Throw in fresh salmon at times or tinned. I have sardines in the cupboard but hmm not always can stomach it, also tinned mackerel but never tried it. Might look into cod liver again. Oh also have Algae Oil. Yeah I’m pretty bent on omega 3s lol. I love crispy salmon skin when I do have it.

  • The main characteristics that differentiate krill oil from fish oil is:

    The omega 3 in krill oil is more bioavailable

    The brain preferentially imports DHA in a form that is more readily produced internally from krill oil.

    Krill oil has anti-oxidant called astaxanthin, an amphipathic carotenoid.

  • Yes now finish off all the krill and starve off the whales since we all know how these business operate they overharvest everything ☹️

  • I’ve always kept watching videos on this and doing research on which omega-3 supplement I should take fish oil or krill oil and when I discovered you really can’t take too much omega-3 I decided to do this I said screw it I’m taking both I take an omega-3 fish oil supplement and a krill oil supplement once in the morning and once again in the evening. The brand I take is from GMC so I’m hoping that’s a good brand.

  • I have type of smokers polycythemia. My hematocrit is 53%, erythrocytes are 6.3 and everything else is normal. the PLT count is 150000. Im 26years old male and i give blood every 4 months for 4 yeas now. I do not take aspirin only q10 sometimes. Is it oky to take krill oil?

  • Why does fish oil and krill oil etc increase my depression? I thought it was supposed to help. I’ve tried enough brands and types over the years and it’s the same result every time. Can anyone help please?

  • Hi Dr.Mercola,

    Antioxidants aside (I’m supplementing purely for bioavailable EPA and DHA), which form of marine oil offers the best value (I’m on a budget)?

    I’ll continue supplementing with fish oil until I know that krill oil offers better value for bioavailable EPA and DHA.

    Thanks for your thoughts on this.

  • One of my bottles of Krill Oil came in with 3 leaked capliques. The fluid is all over all the others. I’ve been taking 2 out each day, and rinsing them before I take them. Is this safe?

  • @RepentanceIsKey you can but typically not necessary to take both, usually one or the other and I strongly believe that krill is the better choice.

  • I have a carotenoid sensitivity and am concerned about the astaxanthin content of krill oil, but would really like to have the other benefits of krill oil. I’ve never noticed allergies to shellfish, but do have allergies to some fish with pink flesh such as trout and salmon. What can I do? Thanks for your time.

  • 1 gram daily of DHA for about 6 weeks (from CVS) took me out of being mute (brain injury) and continues to deliver cognitive improvement with a noticeable decline when i ran out for a couple of weeks. I also take ox bile = wonder if that lipase acts to facilitate the BBB transfer.

  • This is a fantastic video. Very well thought out, thorough, yet still concise. Everything is explained well. Just a great production.+1 subscriber. Keep up this kind of content!

  • @micahe There are not shellfish in krill. Krill is a crustacean and is a type of shellfish and should be avoided with those who have shellfish allergies

  • I used to take fish oil and shark liver oil and wasn’t aware of Krill Oil till I saw ur video.

    Would consider using Krill Oil just to give it a try. I have high cholesterol count and I am a fan of eating seafoods and fish including sardines.

    Will check on the link u have provided ����

  • What about the omega 3’s from chia and flax seeds? I’m not a fish guy and chia/flax mix so well into my oatmeal without altering the taste

  • hello dear Ryan, I am from bangladesh, I am a little youtuber. I like your channel. Can you please tell me, is this voice over is real or computer vocal? this voice is awesome. thanks.

  • Bloody humans, how more will you Plunder! Why don’t you quit bad food habits, n adopt A good health regime instead of taking supplementaries. When you are healthy u wd obviously giv birth to healthy babies. IDIOTS

  • Krill oil is not sustainable. I think we shouldn’t only think of our health but also about our environment and how to protect bio diversity. Krill is food source for many endangered spices such as blue wale and just to mention I am no vegan but I prefer to buy my food and supplements from sustainable sources. What about algae sourced omega 3 supplements.

  • Great. You get to have a sip of water after this. How could any partner of yours beat you in an argument when you can fire off the facts like that? You would make a great barrister

  • er um there no good, both fish oil and krill oil, dha breaks down and the oil will go rancid if you put it through a lab and distillation, do you know the temps required to throw oil over to distill and purify it?, say bye bye to nature man cause you destroy it with that type of extraction, and i know they dont cold press fish oil like its olive oil, so what your eating is actually bad for you. big pharma knows this.

  • I have a crushing amount of inflammation in my brain, from a stroke 5 years ago. What is your advice for getting rid of it? Thank you. Ed

  • Beautiful comparison of krill vs cod liver variants of EPA, DHA, SUPERB elucidation of bioavailability, gastric lipase action,wholeform absobtion of phospholipid forms, with asthaxanthin’s action on decreasing age related symptoms,
    Finally rounding off with admitting to supplementing with both krill oil& cod liver oil EPA/ DHA.

  • She is awesome incredibly informative and enlightening came to my astonishment that I’ve been taking fish oil 2000mg EPA one 1500 mg DHA and a krill oil supplement as well. Basically I’ve been doing all right without even knowing it

  • @mercola thanks for the response! I understand it is no necessary. The question is whether it is healthier to the phospholipids keep it outside the fridge. otherwise I would keep it inside.

  • Rhonda, Just want to thank you for the time, and thought, you put in your videos…Much Appreciated!!…We all wish we were as smart as you… 😉

  • To reduce inflammation you can also juice celery, ginger and turmeric root. These are all great for the human circulatory system that would eliminate taking away the food source for other ocean animals like the whale. Krill is the main source of food for the whales and other sea animals

  • Fish oil is not ok for everyone, simply go on reddit and search: ‘Fish oil makes me feel’. Fish oil and krill oil both my make me feel horrible.

  • She is awesome incredibly informative and enlightening came to my astonishment that I’ve been taking fish oil 2000mg EPA one 1500 mg DHA and a krill oil supplement as well. Basically I’ve been doing all right without even knowing it

  • Can you take Krill Oil if you are allergic to shellfish. I take fish out at the moment and I am allergic to Shellfish; any advice?

  • I’ve always kept watching videos on this and doing research on which omega-3 supplement I should take fish oil or krill oil and when I discovered you really can’t take too much omega-3 I decided to do this I said screw it I’m taking both I take an omega-3 fish oil supplement and a krill oil supplement once in the morning and once again in the evening. The brand I take is from GMC so I’m hoping that’s a good brand.

  • Krill oil is not sustainable. I think we shouldn’t only think of our health but also about our environment and how to protect bio diversity. Krill is food source for many endangered spices such as blue wale and just to mention I am no vegan but I prefer to buy my food and supplements from sustainable sources. What about algae sourced omega 3 supplements.

  • What about the omega 3’s from chia and flax seeds? I’m not a fish guy and chia/flax mix so well into my oatmeal without altering the taste

  • or cut out the middle fish and get a Alge oil or Ahiflower seed oil
    i just had my levels tested and i was on the higher normal range…so it metabolizes well

  • I first megadosed krill oil 10 g and two hours later I felt totally amazing and at the same time like 20 mg of valium. OUTSTANDING NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENT OUT OF ANYTHING.

  • Who gives you permission for killing the Krills. Stop it. and don’t try to disturb the Food chain of Species. Save Nature Save Earth.

  • 1 gram daily of DHA for about 6 weeks (from CVS) took me out of being mute (brain injury) and continues to deliver cognitive improvement with a noticeable decline when i ran out for a couple of weeks. I also take ox bile = wonder if that lipase acts to facilitate the BBB transfer.

  • I have a carotenoid sensitivity and am concerned about the astaxanthin content of krill oil, but would really like to have the other benefits of krill oil. I’ve never noticed allergies to shellfish, but do have allergies to some fish with pink flesh such as trout and salmon. What can I do? Thanks for your time.

  • Beautiful comparison of krill vs cod liver variants of EPA, DHA, SUPERB elucidation of bioavailability, gastric lipase action,wholeform absobtion of phospholipid forms, with asthaxanthin’s action on decreasing age related symptoms,
    Finally rounding off with admitting to supplementing with both krill oil& cod liver oil EPA/ DHA.

  • The main characteristics that differentiate krill oil from fish oil is:

    The omega 3 in krill oil is more bioavailable

    The brain preferentially imports DHA in a form that is more readily produced internally from krill oil.

    Krill oil has anti-oxidant called astaxanthin, an amphipathic carotenoid.

  • I have type of smokers polycythemia. My hematocrit is 53%, erythrocytes are 6.3 and everything else is normal. the PLT count is 150000. Im 26years old male and i give blood every 4 months for 4 yeas now. I do not take aspirin only q10 sometimes. Is it oky to take krill oil?

  • DR.Mercola We Love you!!! Thanks for all the hard work you have done and the good spirit of helping others the right way. Happy Holidays!

  • Thank you for helping me find an alternative to the otherwise heavy metal polluted fish oil, tho John Dotz/Alexander from Fast Life Hacks, who listed supplements you took and take now and it seems you switched from Krill oil to Norwegian fish oil and now taking Salmon roe instead? Why? Or has anyone seen why?

  • One of my bottles of Krill Oil came in with 3 leaked capliques. The fluid is all over all the others. I’ve been taking 2 out each day, and rinsing them before I take them. Is this safe?

  • @kyndra1966 Would be safe to try small amount one capsule or less and observe for any reactions. If you experience none then you can increase dose to two per day. Astaxanthin is clearly a carotenoid, probably the most important one with loads of benefits. Would be ashame if you could not use it.

  • Fish oil is not ok for everyone, simply go on reddit and search: ‘Fish oil makes me feel’. Fish oil and krill oil both my make me feel horrible.

  • @mercola thanks for the response! I understand it is no necessary. The question is whether it is healthier to the phospholipids keep it outside the fridge. otherwise I would keep it inside.

  • This video is really good for playing Stop Action. Just stop her in the middle of any word and look at the funny face you get. The girl does nothing halfway, not even talking.

  • I like that you were on Dr. Oz with this. I was telling myself that this is awesome some great health professors are making it mainstream. Also I’m not usually this type of guy but I loved the way you (subtly) shut down that other lady on the Dr. Oz show. when talking about fish and krill oil.

  • To reduce inflammation you can also juice celery, ginger and turmeric root. These are all great for the human circulatory system that would eliminate taking away the food source for other ocean animals like the whale. Krill is the main source of food for the whales and other sea animals

  • So, what do you suggest a person who is allergic to fish and shellfish take in place of krill oil to get their DHA and omega fatty acids?!

  • Bloody humans, how more will you Plunder! Why don’t you quit bad food habits, n adopt A good health regime instead of taking supplementaries. When you are healthy u wd obviously giv birth to healthy babies. IDIOTS
