Lately we’ve been hearing about the limitless health benefits of Omega 3 fatty acids and how we need to incorporate more of them in our diets.

Omega 3 fatty acids are a chain of essential polyunsaturated fats, in other words, “good fat” that the body needs but cannot produce on its own and therefore can only be obtained from food sources.

Popular sources of these fats include fish oil from types of fatty fish like salmon, cod, tuna, herring, sardines and the like as well as oil from mussels, algae, seal and krill in addition to other sources. In fact, krill has become the newest sensation when it comes to getting your source of Omega 3s.

I take krill because the capsule is much smaller than the fish oil counterpart and I just can't keep it down. I have an ethical problem with seal oil therefore wont take it.
