On June 11, 2014, Manalapan health Examiner Stacey Chillemi a reviewer for The Complete Herbal Guide reviewed a newly launched herbal supplement by Wonder Laboratories called Krill Oil Ultra Red Omega-3 produced in capsule form. Here is what the she had to say.
Krill oil is oil from a tiny, shrimp-like animal. Baleen whales, mantas, and whale sharks eat primarily krill. In Norwegian, the word "krill" means "whale food." People extract the oil from krill, place it in capsules, and use it for medicine. Some brand name krill oil products indicate that they use Antarctic krill. This usually refers to the species of krill called Euphausia superba.
Krill oil is used for heart disease, high levels of certain blood fats (triglycerides), high cholesterol, high blood pressure, stroke, cancer, osteoarthritis, depression, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and painful menstrual periods.
How does it work?
Krill oil contains fatty acids similar to fish oil. These fats are thought to be beneficial fats that decrease swelling, lower cholesterol, and make blood platelets less sticky. When blood platelets are less sticky, they are less likely to form clots.
Krill oil contains EPA and DHA, the same omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil, although usually in smaller amounts. The effects of krill oil have not been researched as thoroughly as those of fish oil. However, a few preliminary studies suggest that krill oil could be superior in some ways. Krill oil might be better absorbed in the body than fish oil.
Research - The studies on krill oil
One study of krill oil found that it was more effective than fish oil in improving cholesterol levels, triglycerides, and blood glucose.
Another study found that krill oil, like omega-3s in general, could improve rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis symptoms such as pain, stiffness, and functional impairment. It also lowered levels of C-reactive protein, a marker for inflammation in the body that has been linked with heart disease. In addition, krill oil seems to ease menstrual cramps. One study found that women who took it needed fewer painkillers.
Why I Decided To Take It:
Over the years as I enter my 40’s, I have seen a decline in my body’s performance. I am a healthy individual don’t get me wrong, but my body does not perform the way it did when I was in my twenties. This is because our bodies don’t produce the same amount of hormones, we lack many vitamins and nutrients that most people are unaware of and most people just accept it as this is what happens when we get older. However, if we provide our body’s with what they need (what our body is lacking) who says, we cannot feel the way when we are twenty again.
I heard about Krill oil and all the great benefits you can obtain from using it so I bought it and started using it. I noticed a vast improvement in my energy and memory. By replenishing my body with the vital vitamins, nutrients and supplements it needed my ability to function effectively and productively on a daily basis has improved.
Why I Love This Product?
I have read many articles that caution people about what vitamins and supplements you should choose and many experts advise people to use a reliable vitamin company with a good reputation because many vitamin companies may not use the actual supplements. Some companies use artificial components or fillers in their vitamins and supplements. In addition, you need to use a reliable company that uses fish that carry no mercury in it because you don’t want fill your body with hazardous toxins.
I am always extra careful by reading the labels and researching the ingredients in the bottle before I buy it and you should be to. I have used another brand of krill oil prior to this one. Out of the two, I liked this one (Wonder Laboratories: Krill Oil Ultra Red Omega-3) better.
As an author of the book, “The Complete Herbal Guide: A Natural Approach to Healing the Body - Heal Your Body Naturally and Maintain Optimal Health Using Alternative Medicine, Herbals, Vitamins, Fruits and Vegetables, I found Wonder Laboratories: Krill Oil Ultra Red Omega-3 vitamins to be very beneficial.”
It came quickly, packaged well and when I tried it, what a difference from the other brand I used in the past. I will continue to use this krill oil.
