Onnit Krill oil has been available for a long while as a part of the Total Primate Care package. I can’t say exactly why it took this long, but as of last week, the krill oil capsules are now available on their own at the Onnit website. You can now build your own Total Primate Care packs if you so desire, since TPC will be sold out for at least a few more weeks.
I’ve written about krill oil on this blog in the past, but if you missed that post I’ll break it down for you as succinctly as I can. Krill oil is much like fish oil, but instead of coming from a fish, it comes from krill, which is actually a small crustacean. Krill can be found in every ocean on earth, but this is not a crustacean that you would want to eat. Krill is typically used in aquariums or as bait for fishing. Onnit krill oil is harvested from the waters of Antarctica and is tested rigorously to ensure it’s free of toxic heavy metals.
Compared to fish oil, the omega-3 fatty acids found in krill oil are absorbed into the body much easier. Krill oil can reduce inflammation in the cardiovascular system, assist in weight management by reducing harmful cholesterol, and help promote healthy blood pressure. It has also shown to improve cognitive function and even mood in adolescents and adults.
I could go on about why krill oil is good for your body and why Onnit krill oil in particular is better than most (if not all) other krill oils on the market, but Onnit does a better job of explaining it all. So if you’re looking for a new supplement to add to your health regimen, or if you’re looking for an alternative to fish oil, check out Onnit’s krill oil capsules. If you’re simply looking for more detailed information about krill oil than I could ever provide, I also encourage you to visit Onnit’s website for a more scientific explanation of how krill oil works and how it can benefit you.
