Krill Oil Versus Fish Oil for Heart Health
For heart health, which is better: krill oil or fish oil?
Krill oil is a form of heart-healthy omega-3 fat and it does the same things to promote heart health as fish oil and squid oil. I do like krill oil, however, my only caveat is the "allergy factor." You see, krill oil comes from shellfish and some of the most violent reactions I saw when in the cardiac catheratization lab were from patients who had shellfish allergies. So that's why I haven't put krill oil in my supplement line for heart health. Instead, I've stayed with squid oil and fish oil as this takes away the allergy factor.
