Benefits of Krill Oil

A little over a month ago I read a friend's facebook status update about Krill Oil
being effective in relieving  symptoms of menopause and PMS.  I read up on the benefits online and was pleased to learn that krill oil contains omega-3 fatty acids and an antioxidant called astaxanthin. Astaxanthin is helpful in protecting the eyes, brain and central nervous system.

Unlike fish oil, Krill Oil
doesn't cause fishy burps or a fishy aftertaste.  It has a more pleasant taste, reminding me of vanilla.  Krill oil is being studied as a natural remedy for high cholesterol as well as being helpful in reducing symptoms of PMS and menopause.  Krill oil is also somewhat effective at reducing arthritis symptoms and inflammation.

Krill oil can be found in the vitamin and supplement aisle at your local drug store, supermarket or online.

I've been taking krill oil regularly since reading this information and I can honestly say that I feel like it's working for me.  My nails are long and strong and my hair seems healthier as well.  I definitely don't have that alligator skin that's so common in the Midwest this time of year.  As far as lowering my cholesterol, I'll have to wait for the results of my annual blood test.

Be sure to follow relevant directions on product labels and consult your pharmacist or physician or other healthcare professional before using Krill Oil

Don't know if my comment went through so I'll try again. We take krill oil every day. Mega Red to be exact. I had done a transcript of a seminar about it and been on it since :)
