You’ve been excited all week to try the city’s new popular seafood restaurant.  The ambiance is terrific and the hum of the room is lively, warm and comfortable.  Your server arrives at your table with news of the chef’s special—krill!  Yum!

Krill Oil is today’s trendy new supplement.  You may not realize that krill oil is actually sourced from a tiny shellfish that is a staple in the diet of many whale species.  The buzz is fueled largely by cagey marketers looking to quickly separate you from your money with heady promises.  Advertisements, articles and so-called “experts” tout krill oil as the far-superior alternative to antiquated and less-effective fish oil.

Does krill oil really yield all the hyped health benefits?  Is it many times “more powerful” than fish oil?  Is fish oil now obsolete?  What does the scientific evidence say?

Today on LivingFuelTV, host KC Craichy slices through the arctic cold, krill-saturated waters and sheds an impassioned ray of light and truth.  Click on the graphic below to watch.
