Krill Oil REVIEW and COMPETITION

Over the last 30 days I’ve been religiously taking my vitamins each and every evening so I can share my thoughts with you! I’m a fan of supplements; I know they say you should get everything you need from your food but I like to make sure.

I was already taking iron supplements, vitamin D, vitamin B complex so a few more weren’t going to upset the apple cart! Simply Supplements recently launched Krill Oil 500g with Astaxanthin and I was keen to try them out.

Krill oil is sourced from shrimp-like crustaceans and is receiving special attention as a potent and bioavailable source of the omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA. The ingredient that sets krill oil apart from other fish oils is astaxanthin, which is believed to be even more effective than vitamins C and E at defending the body against oxidative damage.

The directions were to take 1-3 tablets per day, so I decided to take 3 which would last me one month and give me enough time to make a verdict. The pills were a moderate size and I had no issues swallowing them (I’m not a fan of huge pills!). As per the website, there was no fishy aftertaste or reflux.

I guess the results are intangible in a way; is my heart healthier? How’s my blood pressure doing?! Although I do own a blood pressure monitor so maybe I should whip that out! Keep an eye out over on Instagram.

What supplements do you take? And recommend? …and Good Luck for the competition!

    I take a Vit B with magnesium supplement and also Omega 3 fish oil. I would swap the Omega 3 for Krill oil, but would like to give it a go first as it is more expensive. I have heard wonderful things about Krill oil
