What is in it, composition
Krill oil is a unique all-natural source of several supplements in one including 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.

Source, pure oil
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, what are they?
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.

Krill oil vs fish oil, which one to take, which has more benefits?
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. The benefit of fish oils is that they have a higher amount of omega-3 fatty acids. The benefit of krill oil is that it has more antioxidants such as astaxanthin and vitamins A and E.

Suggested Use, dosage, how much to take
As a dietary supplement, take one to three softgels in the morning with food or as recommended by your health care provider. Dosage varies depending whether your diet includes marine products.

Krill Oil vs Fish Oil supplements, taking both together
Many people ask whether it is okay to take a fish oil supplement and a krill oil supplement at the same time. One or two pills of each can be taken together at breakfast. Fish oil has a higher amount of EPA and DHA fatty acids per softgel, however krill oil has the advantage of having vitamin A and vitamin E, along with the potent antioxidant astaxanthin, which gives the krill oil its pinkish or reddish hue. If your diet includes a good amount of cold water fish, you could skip the fish oil pills.

Side effects, toxicity, safety, danger
Q. 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 warfarin, Plavix, aspirin, or other blood thinners. See krill oil for the latest side effects and safety research. Keep in mind that garlic also has blood thinning benefits.

Dosage, how much to take
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.

Antarctic source
Q. 
Where does the Krill Oil product carried by Physician Formulas 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.

Testing for purity
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.

Smell, odor
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.

Best krill oil product
Q.
I have done a lot of research on the web for the best krill oil and many say they are the best. How do I know for sure your product is 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.

Pure Krill
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 pure krill oil, no other oils are added. 

Interactions, combinations with other dietary supplements
Krill oil has not been tested in combination with popular over the counter supplements such as CoQ10, ginkgo, acetylcysteine, and other natural products. However, we have not had reports of negative interactions thus far.

Benefits
We have seen very little human research regarding the benefits of krill oil for acne, arthritis, heart problems, and vision improvement. However early research looks promising.

Research
Nutr Rev. 2017. Lipid-modifying effects of krill oil in humans: systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials. The effect of krill oil supplements on plasma lipid concentrations was assessed through a systematic review of the literature and a meta-analysis of available randomized controlled trials. Krill oil supplementation can reduce low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and triglycerides. Additional clinical studies with more participants are needed to assess the impact of krill oil supplementation on other indices of heart and vascular disease risk.

CAUTION: If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or allergic to shellfish, have a blood coagulation condition, a bleeding disorder, or are taking anticoagulants such as aspirin, Plavix,  warfarin Coumadin, consult a health care professional prior to use.
