Vitacost KrillRed® 100% Pure Krill Oil -- 300 mg - 60 Softgels
Something Smells Fishy! PLEASE READ THIS REVIEW
I have taken various forms of Omega-3, Omega-6 and/or Omega-9 over the years. Whether it be fish oil, flaxseed, soy etc. based; the one thing in common was the liquid gel capsules were large & you usually had too take 2.
Krill has turned all of this up on its head big time. Krill is a shell fish VERY similar to Shrimp. They are among the main food sources for various marine life, such as whales.
What makes Krill Oil so great is, in its pure form nothing else can come close to matching it. It's been proven over & over again through various scientific studies to be vastly superior to other forms of Omega essential fatty acids. The body (heart, brain, etc.) absorbs & utilizes pure Krill order extremely efficiently.
Pure Krill Oil also eliminates the need for Omega-6 and/or 9 as well. As if all that wasn't enough, the liquid gel capsules are 1/3 or less the size of a typical fish and/or plant based capsules. Also, you only have too take 1 capsule per day.
The 1 & only bad thing about Krill Oil is, it has an extremely strong fish odor. I'm talking as in, getting the cap off & on again as well as swallowing the capsule as quickly as possible! However, unlike other fish oil based capsules, Krill Oil does NOT leave any after taste, nor d o you suffer fish odor and/or taste from belching. All of which occurs with typical Omega-3 fish oil.
I cannot recommend this product highly recommend enough!!! Just like other Vitacost products, it is very high quality & low in cost.

I really like this product. It doesn't leave a fish taste in your mouth or cause any after taste. I feel it's a top quality product .

Easy to take, no fishy "reminders".
Heard this was a better product than plain fish oil;
Seems fine so far.

The smell is too strong.
When I open my vitamin/medicine cabinet all I can smell is fish and the cap is on tight. The product is good other than that, but will stick with the megared for this reason.
