Krill Oil contains omega-3 essential fatty acids. Unlike fish oil, krill oil doesn’t cause fishy burps or an aftertaste. Also, krill oil contains higher amounts of astaxanthin than fish oil. The algae that krill eat produces the bright red pigment astaxanthin that gives krill and other crustaceans such as lobster and shrimp their reddish-pink color. Unlike many other antioxidants, astaxanthin crosses the bloodbrain barrier, where it could theoretically protect the eye, brain and central nervous system from free radical damage.
