Frequently Asked Questions

Can krill oil cause gout or kidney stones?

Seafood, shellfish, meat and some vegetables are naturally high in purines, which promotes a buildup of uric acid. This buildup may lead to gout or kidney stones. Krill oil is highly purified, leaving behind purines, and does not cause problems in most people. Those who have a history of gout or kidney problems should consult their health care provider before adding a krill oil supplement.
