I work in health care, and have been a vitamin/supplement taker for several years. My particular cocktail includes a multivitamin, vitamin C, vitamin D, and omega-3 fish oil capsules. Ever since I completed my Honors Thesis years back in which I studied the effect of omega-3 fatty acids on depression and anxiety, I have been a committed fan of these powerhouse nutrients. In North America, most people’s diets are lacking in omega-3 fatty acids, as we are not a nation which eats much in the way of fish.
Omega-3 fatty acids are multi-functional nutrients which aid in a number of body processes. It is thought that omega-3′s contribute to optimal functioning of the heart, skin, joints and brain to name a few. Many prominent health practitioners advocate supplementing with omega-3′s as a preventative health measure.
I have been taking fish oil capsules for years, and have tried many different brands. A common complaint of mine is the oft-noted “fish-burp”. No matter what brand I have tried, I always find that I get a “fishy” aftertaste which is really off-putting to say the least. I was intrigued when I was offered the opportunity to test Everest Nutrition Krill Oil capsules, which promise a number of things, including no fishy aftertaste.
The lack of aftertaste is only one of the many benefits of this product. Krill, which are tiny shrimp-like crustaceans, are harvested from Antarctic waters, which ensures their purity. Krill are a plentiful organism, in fact, if you totalled the total mass of all krill on earth, they would outweigh human beings! That’s a lot of krill! Another benefit of which I was unaware–krill are abundant in a substance called astaxanthin, an anti-oxidant which help gets rid of toxins and free radicals in the body. In addition, Everest Nutrition’s Krill Oil has higher concentrations of omega-3 fatty acids than other comparable krill oil brands. The chemical formulation used by Everest Nutrition is done in such a way that the omega-3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA, are easily absorbed by your body.
I have been using Everest Nutrition Krill Oil for a month, and have been very happy with this product. They capsules (which they call Capliques) are easily swallowed, and smaller than other fish oil capsules that I have used. And true to the claim, there is no fishy aftertaste, no fish burp! That made me very happy indeed!
