Omega-3s do all kinds of good for your body, from supporting your heart health to your mental performance. Since your body can't make them on its own, though, you have to consume them through the diet. Trouble is, most of us don't get enough. In fact, according to a recent study analyzing data from the United States and Germany, 98 percent of study participants had low Omega-3 index levels. That's where O-Krill 3™, a premium line of krill oil supplements tailored for specific needs, comes in!
What are Krill?
Krill are shrimp-like crustaceans found in the pure waters of Antarctica and make up the largest biomass on the planet. They are rich in the omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), thanks to the phytoplankton (also known as microalgae) they regularly munch on.
Fish Oil vs Krill Oil
Fish oil is the most popular source of omega-3s. But does that make it the best? Read on to find out six advantages O-Krill 3™ Oil has over fish oil.

|Taste||Fishy taste and repeat||No fishy taste or repeat||You won't taste it going down or burp it up later|
|Dosage||Several large, difficult-to-swallow softgels per day||1-2 small, easy-to-swallow softgels per day||You'll actually take your omega-3 supplement|
