This high quality krill oil product is derived from Antarctic krill grown in the wild ocean around Antarctica and is processed without application of any solvents. Krill oil is a uniue all-natural source of several supplements in one. Firstly, we have the crucial omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA which are lacking in the diet of many people, particularly those who do not consume enough cold water fish. In addition to omega-3 fatty acids, krill oil contains the important carotenoid antioxidant astaxanthin which gives the pinkish or reddish color to the softgels. Lastly, it contains vitamins A and E.
Krill are small, shrimp-like, ocean-dwelling crustaceans that feed on microscopic phytoplankton and serve as food themselves for larger sea creatures, including whales, sharks and seals.A krill oil supplement may be used in place of a fish oil supplement, or together with a fish oil supplement. A good option is to use a capsule or two of each.

Fish oil has a higher amount of EPA and DHA fatty acids per softgel, however krill oil has the advantage of having astaxanthin, vitamin A and vitamin E. Krill oil has a high amount of astaxanthin, a carotenoid with antioxidant properties which gives the krill oil its pinkish or reddish hue. Therefore, one option is to take one of each, or alternate their use.
QuestionsQ. Does krill oil have any side effects, any danger or toxicity? A. No medical reports have yet been published regarding documented cases of krill oil side effects. One possibility is thinning blood making it less coagulable which is often a good thing but if too many krill oil softgels are taken, one needs to be careful if they are taking Coumadin or other blood thinners.
Q. What's the maximum number of krill oil pills one should take a day. A. Unless your doctor is treating you for a particular condition, we don't see the need to take more than 4 krill oil softgels a day. Take fewer pills if you are also taking fish oil supplements.
Q. Where does the Krill Oil product carried by Physician Formulas website come from? How do I know which brand is best? A. This krill oil comes from the Antarctic waters. The extraction process for different krill oil products is different, so it is not easy to say that one form of extraction process is better than another form until actual studies are done on humans for prolonged periods comparing one type of krill oil versus other forms of extraction to determine their effects on human health and disease.
Q. You did a great job qualifying your krill oil except for failing to mention if it has been tested for mercury or other chemicals that are tainting our marine life. A. Before any raw materials are released for manufacture, a certificate of analysis and HPLC tests are done to make sure no toxins or heavy metals are present.
Q. I understand that krill oil is processed in different countries, do you know what company extracts the krill oil for this product and what country it is made in? A. The krill oil is extracted in the US, the actual krill is from the Antarctic region. The company that supplies the final product in the US is Cyvex.Nutrition.
Q. Does the krill oil supplement have a fishy smell? A. The softgel smells like fish, but not that much. It does not seem to have much of a fish oil-like after taste.
Q. I have done alot of research on the web for the best krill oil and they all say they are. How do i know for sure you are the best? A. We do not claim the product on our web site is the best. Studies comparing the different brands have not been done, therefore any company who claims their product is the best needs to show published research and proof with studies done in humans.
Q. I have been reading labels on krill oil bottles and many say that it is a combination of fish and krill oil, but does not say the ratio. I am looking to see if your krill oil is 100% without other fish oils in it. I read it is important for your joints to have that type. A. Yes, ours is 100 percent krill oil, no other oils are added.Find out about krill oil new research: Subscribe to the highly-acclaimed FREE Supplement Research Update newsletter by nutrition expert Ray Sahelian, M.D., emailed twice a month.
