  1. This is also the question that I always ask. When it comes to krill oil vs fish oil, which one is better? I know that both of them have their own health benefits. However, I’ve recently heard the issue on mercury toxicity that we can get in some fish and its content. I guess this is also the reason why I prefer taking krill oil supplement. Besides, it is recommended by our family doctor. Been taking it for a long time now.

  2. Hi Valerie –
    Thanks for the great comments. As always it comes down to knowing and trusting the source of your supplements. If you have any questions I would call or email the manufacturer of your brand to see if they have done testing on the mercury levels of your fish/krill oil and to have them send you the results. Also ask them about their source of fish, quality control and continued testing. Have them earn your business.
    Hope that helpful.
