This is the first fish oil product I have been able to stick with. I only need one soft gel a day, it's small size and very easy to swallow. There is no fishy taste or odor and it does not make me burp fish all day. It has countered all my arguments for not taking a fish oil supplement. I do not know if my cholesterol levels have been affected yet as I have only finished my first bottle but will be keeping an eye on them. This product is a little pricey, but is sometimes offered at buy one, get one free and that is a good time to stock up. I also like that this is a responsibly sourced product.

The price is not worth it. And there is definately a bad smell when you open the container. Also, when left in a cabinet the whole medicine cabinet smells like fish. I put a deododorant in the cabinet to compensate for the smell. Product works OK, but, so does odorless fish oil. The only good pro about it, is its size.

    Easy to swallow. No mess. Very health effective.
    I have used the regular fish-oil capsules and they have after taste which is awful.

      I have tried many Omega 3 products and this is the only one that I don't taste the entire day. It's a relief to finally be able to add this supplement to my diet.

        This krill oil is easier to take than fish oil because krill oil softgels are smaller. My husband and I take it to improve heart health.

          My doc recommended niacin when my total cholesterol hit 230. My HDL, LDL, and triglycides improved moderately, but my total kept climbing higher every year. I decided to add fish oil, but it made slight improvements. Then I read about Megared and replaced the fish oil with it. My next test was great! My total went from 260 to 198, the HDL level doubled, while the bad stuff dropped well below the max level. I love taking only one small softgel versus 4 big, fishy softgels/day.

            I take one a day with my breakfast. I like that one pill gives me the same benefits as 3 fish oils. My eyes stay moist, as well as my skin.

                  readings. I will continue to use this product.

                  It has no fishy taste or odor and pill size is small.

                      I am a 54 year old female on lipitor due to family history. The cardiologist said it was okay to take fish oil to possibly help with joint pain issues. Decided on this product to avoid the aftertaste I've heard about from fish oil. I'm disappointed that since taking it I have experienced dizziness. Don't know which of the ingredients is causing it but the condition stopped after the first day of not taking it.

                       – A growing number of health professionals are encouraging people to add more long-chain omega-3 fatty acids to their diet. Two long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA, are found in fatty fish. If you don't eat fish regularly your doctor may recommend supplementation. Schiff MegaRed Omega 3 Krill Oil 300 mg Dietary Supplements, Softgels make it convenient to add omega-3s to your diet. The omega-3s in Schiff MegaRed Omega 3 Krill Oil are harvested from tiny crustaceans that live in the Antarctic Ocean using environmentally-responsible harvesting practices. The krill oil in Schiff MegaRed is certified by the Marine Stewardship Council, an organization that recognizes and rewards sustainable fishing practices.

                      Why Krill Oil Supplements?



                      Krill is a good source of omega-3s. Some researchers speculate that krill oil may be easier to absorb than fish oil. Krill oil may also help consumers avoid the fishy aftertaste associated with some fish oil supplements. Dosing is simple - only one easy-to-swallow softgel capsule a day is recommended. Schiff MegaRed Omega 3 Krill Oil 300 mg Dietary Supplements, Softgels contain no added sugar, yeast, milk, preservatives or artificial colors. They are also gluten-free.

                      About MegaRed



                      MegaRed from Schiff is proud to offer other krill oil products including extra-strength and ultra-strength krill oil supplements and an omega-3 supplement formulated with plant-based omega-3s. This form is suitable for vegetarians and vegans and anyone who doesn't consume animal products. MegaRed continues to expand its offerings with other supplements for heart health and for joint support.

                      Is Krill Oil Right for You?



                      Krill oil is generally considered safe for most people, although it could interact with certain medications. Talk to your doctor to make sure a krill oil supplement is right for you.
