Review and Giveaway : Krill Oil

 This is a sponsored post. Recently I received a free bottle of 100% Pure Cold Pressed Antarctic Krill Oil by Everest Nutrition to review and giveaway.

Hello Dear Readers:

  What  perfect timing as I just started a sugar detox and a wonderful workout plan that I find out that Krill Oil is necessary for my system. And, it will keep me looking and feeling healthy. I used to take fish oil , but now I am a loyal Krill oil fan!   Have you ever heard of Krill Oil? I hadn't until I tried it, and it is amazing. I can already notice good things happening in my system.  Want to know more about this oil? 

  Here are some deets from the Dr Oz website: "krill oil has emerged as the next leader in the wonderful world of omega-3s. Just like fish oil, krill oil contains long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids of the omega-3 family, EPA and DHA. In contrast to fish oil, EPA and DHA from krill oil come attached to phospholipids, mostly phosphatidylcholine. That structural difference leads to better absorption and delivery of DHA to the brain (in animal models). In addition, krill oil contains a potent carotenoid antioxidant, astaxanthin, that may prevent EPA and DHA oxidation. " Phew!! 

  That is a lot of big words, and they are mostly over my head.  And if you are like me you just want to know what a Krill is.  That is an easy one: A krill is a  tiny, shrimp-like animal. Baleen whales, mantas, and whale sharks primarily eat krill. In Norwegian, the word "krill" means "whale food." And what is krill oil?? People extract the oil from krill, place it in capsules, and use it for medicine.  It looks like this in pill form:

 And  here are the basics about Omega 3 fatty acids:

  •  They play a critical role in cognitive brain function and memory.
  •  They help to reduce heart disease, 
  •  They can lower the risk of chronic ailments such as cancer and arthritis
  •  Also they can regulates cholesterol levels 
  •  They keep skin healthy and clear

 All wonderful effects from such a tiny sea creature, non?  As soon as I received the bottle, I started taking the pills and they are wonderful. No aftertaste. There was no bad taste at all in my mouth. They slipped down my throat easily and the pills are NOT horse pills, they are a good size and shape to swallow. And, I am not a great pill swallow-er. So far, I have been losing weight, getting stronger and feeling healthy and I know that the Krill that I am taking is helping me to feel this way. My skin looks clear, and I have super energy.  So far, so good. I am feeling great with Krill Oil. How can you not want to take it will all of those great side effects.  Want to try some for yourself?? Enter to win a bottle in the rafflecopter below:

exercise daily.

Eat a high fiber low fat diet. I get my dietary fat from olive oil which is healthier than butter. For vitamin C, I eat plenty of fruit.

Exercise? Push ups, sit ups, and hatha yoga.

Hope to win, as I have yet to try krill oil.

I try not to be too lazy - I always take the stairs instead of the elevator, I do lunges and other exercises while I'm brushing my teeth and I use my time in the car to practice strengthening my muscles.
