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.

{see the full product info for Krill Oil here}

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. 

Simply Supplements are giving you the opportunity to try Krill Oil for yourself! Just enter the competition via the rafflecopter widget below! Please note, this will only be shipped to the United Kingdom and closes on 1st September.

    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
