Getting the most out of your Krill Oil supplements

The information on the benefits surrounding Krill Oil, and Krill Oil supplementation is extensive. We’ve also provided a lot of added information on this site as well – because when it comes to supplementation and your daily health care regime, it’s important to be as informed as possible.

Omega-3’s are powerhouses when it comes to promoting heart health, reduced joint inflammation, relief from symptoms associated with premenstrual syndrome, a significant lift to feelings of personal well-being and self-esteem, a boost to your energy levels, encouraging eye health, and to much more in terms of long term health care benefits. Literally thousands of hours have gone into research and clinical studies, all to confirm the fact that optimal omega-3 intake = optimal health. Period.

What makes Krill Oil such a strong contender when it comes down to deciding where to start in omega-3 intake, is that on top of a nearly 100% concentration of pure omega-3’s, krill oil is virtually free of the contaminants and pollutants that plague so much of our marine life and leading brand fish oil supplements.

Krill Oil is also rich in axtaxanthin. Astaxanthin is an incredible antioxidant that works to fight for cellular health, and reduce inflammation in the body (which is the cause for many illnesses and conditions that attack our personal health). Because of the presence of astaxanthin, Krill Oil has literally 54X the antioxidant benefits than other leading fish oil brands.

Krill Oil is also stored in phospholipid form. Phospholipids are natural fats already found in the body, which means our bodies don’t have to work too hard to break down the essential fatty acids in omega-3’s, which in turn means that we are able to digest them faster – and experience the benefits quicker as well.

Okay, so it’s pretty obvious. When it comes to omega-3’s and making sure you’re getting the crème de la crème – Krill Oil is the way to go.

Two questions we hear frequently are:

When should I be taking Krill Oil?

How many Mg of Krill Oil Should I be taking daily?

So, in the spirit of making sure you are as informed as possible, here are the answers.

When to take Krill Oil

It is best to take your Krill Oil in the morning.

There are several reasons behind this. Krill Oil reduces joint inflammation, provides a boost to your energy, relief from symptoms associated with PMS and encourages feelings of personal and well-being for those who find themselves feeling a little emotionally under the weather – it’s best to take your supplement first thing in the morning so that it gets straight to work at providing relief and promoting optimal health throughout your day.

We are more likely to follow a schedule in the morning. Get up, brush your teeth, eat breakfast (you ARE eating breakfast right?!), take any pharmaceuticals your doctor may be prescribing (including birth control), and while you’re at it, include your nutraceutical supplements into this same regime without having to break your stride.

How many MG of Krill Oil should I take?

The answer to this question really depends on a slew of information that is customized to your personal health. Weight, age, height, gender and any or all health conditions come into play when determining the amount of Krill Oil supplementation that will get you to where you want to be in terms of personal health goals.

First and foremost, we recommend that you speak with your health care practitioner regarding Krill Oil, and any supplementation that you are adding to your daily health care regime. In fact, you should really be speaking with your family doctor about any changes whatsoever in your activity levels, dietary intake and pharmaceutical or nutraceutical products.

On the whole, 500mg of Krill Oil a day will help you maintain health. If you are a healthy person on the whole, you may consider this enough, but it’s not really pushing you into the upper echelon of optimal health. 1,000mg of Krill Oil taken daily will help you not only stay healthy, but reach new heights in terms of long term health and wellness goals.

If you are experiencing significant concern regarding your cholesterol levels or joint health, your doctor may even recommend dosages up to 2,000mg a day.

Viva Labs provides 1250mg of Krill Oil per serving to ensure you are able to achieve optimal personal health on a daily basis! We want you to look and feel your best, and we hope that you do!
