Neptune Krill Oil (500mg) Overview
NOW Foods Neptune Krill Oil (NKO) t goes beyond ordinary fish oil supplements by supplying more than just omega 3 fatty acids. Neptune Krill Oil is a robust source of the same essential fatty acids (EFA's) supplied by fish oil, DHA and EPA, but krill oil also supplies the valuable super-nutrient astaxanthin. Astaxanthin itself is gaining popularity as an extremely versatile and beneficial nutrient. Krill oil is actually closer to cod liver oil, which supplies the omega 3's DHA and EPA along with vitamins A and D. Krill are small shrimp-like crustaceans that occur in all oceans. Many people "stack" Neptune Krill Oil along with a fish oil supplement, since fish oil is a more cost-effective way of obtaining DHA and EPA, of which you want at least 1 gram per day in combination. This is a great idea, and inexpensive cod liver oil could also be stacked with fish and krill oil for superior EFA coverage along with 3 great immune-support nutrients.
