I had never even heard of Krill Oil before, so I was really excited to learn that it is 54 times more powerful than fish oil . So, I quickly bought Krill Oil by Pure matters.

What is Krill Oil

There is a single natural supplement that can provide you with all kinds of health and beauty benefits. Actually, it may sound amazing but this is the oil of krill, tiny shellfish. However, krill oil is becoming so popular, being even more beneficial than fish oil. Moreover, krill oil is useful both as an oil supplement and as a replacement for other fish oils, for example, Mega Red Krill Oil.

Company Says

My Verdict

I cannot take other fish oil supplements, even those that are lemon flavored because the taste just would not go away.
I tried other krill oil softgels and when you would open the bottle the smell actually made me ill it was so offensive. Well, the pure matters softgels have no offensive smell and do not have any lingering taste so I would recommend them highly.

Plus Points

1- Excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids
2- Supports heart, joint and mental health
3- Harvested from protected, sustainable Antarctic fisheries

Minus Points

1-  May be harmful during Pregnancy and breast-feeding.
2- Some people who are allergic to seafood might also be allergic to krill oil supplements.
3- Because krill oil can slow blood clotting, there is concern that it might increase the risk        of bleeding during and after surgery. Stop using krill oil at least 2 weeks before a      surgery.            

My Rating

  1. Unlike today’s modern Gelatin capsules, in previous decades, pharmaceutical companies that produced medications for oral ingestion were only able to offer their products in tablet form. Essentially, the medication to be used in the tablet would be mixed with binding agents and hardened, producing a solid pill. These medications, although effective, often took long periods of time to digest, meaning the time needed for the medication to be absorbed was longer, and they were often hard to swallow. In 1834, however, the pharmaceutical company Mothes and Dublanc began producing a different type of capsule made using gelatin.
