What is Krill Oil, and is it good for you?

As you know, the folks at Perfect Keto offer 20% off to anyone who uses the code KETOINTHECITY. They recently introduced a new supplement called Krill Oil. But before I gave it my endorsement, I had to figure out what in the heck it was!!!

Aren’t Krill the little animals that whales eat?

Yes They are!

As it turns out Krill Oil is a Fish Oil alternative. Most people take fish oil for the Omega 3 fatty acids. Our body does not make Omega 3 and has to get it from our diet. The Benefits of Omega 3 are:

  • Brain Health and Development

  • Reduced Risk of Heart Disease

  • Reduced Inflammation

  • Helps Build Lean Muscle Mass

Fish Oil is derived from fatty fish. “Most fatty fish used to produce fish oil do not produce omega-3 fatty acids, but instead, accumulate omega-3s as a result of consuming microalgae or smaller fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids.” (Perfect Keto)

Krill Oil is different. The Fatty Acids found in Krill are structured differently and have been found to work with you body better. In addition to really high levels of Omega 3, Krill oil also conains other healthy fatty acids, antioxidants, and vitamins A, E, B12, and Folate.

Krill Oil can also be more sustainably harvested than Fish Oil. It doesn’t contribute to overfishing.

Here’s my take away. If you aren’t getting enough Omega 3 in your diet and would like to see some of the benefits of adding a supplement to your daily routine, try out Krill Oil!

Remember, supplements take some time to start working. So be patient and give it about 6 weeks. Also don’t forget to use the code KETOINTHECITY at check out to get 20% off your entire Perfect Keto Order.
