Krill Oil: An Alternative to Fish Oil?

By January 7, 2008

Follow me on:

One thing that many people find unpleasant about taking fish oil capsules is the fishy aftertaste or burps that some of them can cause. I usually suggest is taking the fish oil capsule just before a meal, which helps reduces the likelihood of the aftertaste and even helps with the absorption of the oil.

But now there's an alternative. Krill oil, the oil from shrimp-like crustaceans that are near the bottom of the food chain, has been promoted as an alternative to fish oil. Although there isn't nearly as much research on the health benefits of krill oil, it's still promising. Learn more about krill oil. Krill Oil: What You Need to Know.
