Do you suffer from tender or stiff joints in the morning? Iím here to tell you that a krill oil supplement daily could help make it stop! Thatís right; you donít have to suffer anymore.
AMJN reports that consuming omega-3 fatty acids in dietary supplement form can lower or even discontinue background doses of nonsteroidal and inflammatory drugs or disease. For many this would mean a better life free of pain and dangerous medications.
On one hand we have drugs, unnatural, only mask the pain, and have possible side effects after long term use.
Other hand we have Krill oil, safe, natural proven effective in superior bio- availability of omega -3 fatty acids, phospholipided bonding, Astaxanthin, and especially cost. A one month supply of Vital HP Krill oil cost $19.95, thatís it!
In my opinion the scale seems to tip in favor of Krill oil.
How much do your medications cost you?
I want to be very clear. Do not stop taking any medications otherwise told by your physician.
Much of the research on Omega-3 fatty acids has been done using fish oil and although it is helpful to understand the effectiveness of fish oil, krill oil was proven to be more significantly effective but at lower doses of DHA and EPA in many cases.(PubMed)
Unlike fish oil, krill oil is superior in its bio-availability of omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA due to its phospholipids and powerful natural antioxidant (astaxanthin) content. Fish oil is in triglyceride form and it takes the body a great deal more work to break down a fish oil supplement to enable it to work for your body. Unlike Krill Oil, Fish oil does not contain any antioxidant value. Antioxidant value is very vital to the oxidation process of omega-3 DHA and EPA which naturally oxidize rapidly. This is very often why you get fishy burps and diarrhea from fish oil supplements.
There are two mediators of inflammation that contribute to the inflammatory events that occur in people with rheumatoid arthritis, increase of Leukotriene B4 and interleukin 1in the synovial tissue. This tissue forms the joint lining and produces lubricating and cushioning synovial fluid. Leukotrienes are among the inflammatory mediators found in an inflamed joint.
What causes inflammation to become chronic?
Researchers have come to the possibilities that nutritional evolution has become very critical in the manipulation of many inflammatory diseases and cancers. Our Western society has steadily changed our diets to mostly comprise heavy amounts of omega-6 fatty acids and less omega-3 fatty acids. This imbalance of nutrients has created miscommunication in the body. This miscommunication sends signals to try and fix the inflammation that has been created but as time goes on repairs it incorrectly therefore created chronic diseases such as fibromyalgia, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and Alzheimerís. Our diets have become critical to overall health.
Itís not too late! We can make a difference in our health and begin to enjoy life again.
Krill oil is now proving to be very beneficial and nutritionally important to our health.
The FDA and EPA have reported that consumptions of fish could be hazardous due to amount of pollutants, chemicals and mercury ingested by fish. Fish oils contain same toxins unhealthy doses. However, krill oil has shown to be unharmed by these chemicals and pollutants. Antarctic krill is among the highest bio masses on the earth and reproduces at extremely high rates.
Arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are crippling diseases and they make our lives miserable. We donít die from this chronic inflammatory disease; we just live life in pain and disabled.
There is a choice, and that choice is Krill Oil. Give yourself a better life and stop the frustration and pain.
Vital HP Krill Oil is superior and we are making a difference for so many people.
We want to help you!

I am a sixty-six year old male with the disease in all my major joints. I agree with you 100%. I am on the medications too but the fish oil's Omega 3 is what has really helped me regain some of my mobility.

I will not disagree fish oil is great. But did you know that fish oil is only in triglyceride form and must pass through your liver first before it can even begin to help your body?
This is part of where krill oil is superior. Krill Oil is in phospholipid form and enters directly into the blood stream not needing any additional work from your body to begin ingestion. Phospholipids are cellular communicators in the body.
Fish oil must be taken with an antioxidant like vitamin A or E so that the omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA will be beneficial. Krill Oil on the other had naturally contains an antioxidant called Astaxanthin (the most powerful antioxidant available)
If you are interested I've attached an interesting blog that you can read that would problably explain this better.
Don't get me wrong fish oil is better than nothing and it does help. I just know for a fact that krill oil is healthier and more aggressive than fish oil.

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune condition where the bodyís own immune cells start ďattackingĒ the joints of the body, causing pain and inflammation. The small joints of the hands and feet are most commonly first affected. Oily fish such as krill reduce the risk of rheumatoid arthritis.
