Krill Oil 500mg
But what can I use as an alternative, we hear you ask? What could replace Super Krill and still offer all the benefits that you've learnt to trust from your current product. Well, let us introduce you to OracOmega®, our high strength pure fish oil with protective plant antioxidants.
OracOmega® contains significantly higher levels of the important EPA/DHA compounds than you'll find in Krill Oil and you get the benefits of our unique ORAC blend; green tea, rosemary and oregano. Combined, all these plants help to defend the body against the damaging effects of free radicals from pollution, sunlight and heavy exercise.
We gave OracOmega® to a group of nutrition experts and they all agreed that we had a GREAT formula, and 7 out of 8 said that it would become their first choice of fish oil.
Studies validate the value of omega 3s to our health, but these benefits only exist if the omega 3 is not oxidised. We look after the oils right up to the point you swallow them, with careful processing and by protecting the oil from oxidation, with the capsule shell. Once the omega 3s are in your bloodstream, it is important to ensure that they don't get oxidised by highly reactive compounds called free radicals. Our bodies are great at preventing this from happening by throwing antioxidants at the free radicals to neutralize them. Many useful antioxidants are nutrients that we obtain from our food, and increasingly the effectiveness of each antioxidant is being measured in ORAC units for comparison. Interestingly, certain plant phenolic compounds are much more effective than even vitamins C and E.

There are no plans to change the shape of Super Krill capsules as this product has been discontinued from the range. We do not have an alternative omega 3 capsule that would be of a similar size, however, you may wish to consider Cod Liver Oil Liquid (code 450). Cod Liver Oil Liquid provides an excellent level of omega-3 (1035mg per 5ml). This liquid contains a natural lemon flavour and is highly purified, so it does not have the fishy taste that some liquids can have. Please find a link to Cod Liver Oil Liquid, below.
This was discontinued due to customer feedback relating to the potential ethical and environmental concerns surrounding the harvesting of Krill Oil. We insisted on choosing a supplier of krill that followed strict Eco Harvesting (having achieved Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) accreditation for sustainable seafood and Friends of the Sea certification). Having said all of that, we, like a lot of our customers, are very concerned to do the right thing when it comes to protecting the environment.
These result in anxiety and people should be wary of these.
I am sorry to hear that you have been experiencing difficulty swallowing these capsules. I have contacted you directly to discuss this further.
