Frequently Asked Questions

General Product Questions

What is the difference between fish oil and krill oil?

Krill oil may be a stronger, more effective way to get your daily omega-3s than fish oil. Krill oil is in phospholipid form, the type of lipid that our cell membranes are composed of. This allows for easy and immediate absorption into the body. Krill oil also contains astaxanthin, a potent antioxidant and carotenoid. Fish oil is generally in triglyceride form, which needs to then be converted to phospholipid form. Some of the beneficial qualities and strength of the fish oil may be diminished during this conversion. Krill oil may be the better alternative to fish oil if you are looking for maximum potency, efficacy and purity in your omega-3 supplement.

What are the health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids (omega-3s)?

The two omega-3s that hold the key to krill oil’s health benefits are EPA and DHA.

EPA and DHA are shown in many studies to reduce LDL “bad” cholesterol, increase HDL “good” cholesterol, lower triglycerides, reduce inflammation, promote proper development of the brain in babies and children, reduce age-related cognitive decline, promote hormonal balance, reduce symptoms of PMS, reduce joint stiffness and pain and support skin health.

Krill oil is rich in the omega-3s EPA and DHA that promote all of these benefits.

Can I break open the capsule and consume the krill oil?

It is not recommended that you break open the capsule as the capsule helps to reduce any fishy odor, taste or repeat.

If you have problems swallowing pills, you may choose to break open the capsule however the taste and smell may be unpleasant.

What is krill? Is krill a fish?

Krill are small, shrimp-like crustaceans. They are extremely pure because they are at the bottom of the food chain. Their high omega-3 content comes from their phytoplankton diet, which is naturally high in EPA and DHA. Krill oil’s EPA and DHA are pre-converted and in the highly absorbable phospholipid form. Krill are sourced from the waters of the Antarctic, a pure and uncontaminated body of water. Krill are naturally high in astaxanthin, a powerful antioxidant and carotenoid. Astaxanthin is what gives krill and krill oil its bright red/orange colour.

Are flaxseeds a good source of omega-3s?

Flaxseed and flaxseed oil contains the omega-3 fatty acid, alpha-linoleic acid (ALA), which our body poorly converts to EPA and DHA. Krill oil is rich in nutritionally-supportive EPA and DHA and is pre-converted, highly bio-available and active, allowing your body to fully access the spectrum of nutrients that it has to offer. In a healthy person, only 15% of ALA is converted to EPA and DHA. A diet high in omega-6 fatty acids, found in corn and safflower oils can drastically reduce the body’s ability to make EPA and DHA from ALA. Health conditions such as diabetes and degenerative diseases prevent the body from completing the conversion. Taking Viva Labs Krill Oil, with its potent amounts of pre-converted EPA and DHA, allows for incredible bio-availability and rapid, noticeable benefits, without having to worry about per-conversion factors.
