    Holy moly, I'm so thankful for your blog!  There is so much information 'out there' and it's really hard to understand what's really good for you or not.  I love how you break it down.  In today's day and age, it almost seems that it's getting harder and harder to 'eat right' and take care of your body… because there are 'hidden' things that we dont know about…. thanks so much for your blog that keeps us well-informed 🙂

      Hi Robin,

      Yes, sorting through all the info, researching, and applying known research info helps me sort through and share. There is a ton of misinformation out there. I am so thankful for the NeoLife Company. They thoroughly research, test, and are at the forefront with leading edge technology I can trust. They have been there for 55+ years and I have been working with them for almost 29 years. It is important to have information you can trust.

      Thanks for your wonderful comment. I appreciate it very much!

      Blessings, Pat

    There is such hype about krill these days, Pat, that we really appreciate the thorough presentation of the issues of concern that it brings with it!  Without a reliable resource, such as you are, many are at the mercy of the loudest advertisers …!

      Hi Sharon,

      Thank you for your nice compliment. I watch for red flags that need to be researched and made available to my readers. Yes, the loudest advertisers even capture those we should be able to trust. Another issue is the dollar and profit margin. Compromises are often made.

      I appreciate readers like you who help me spread the word.

      Thanks, Pat

    I don't take supplements, but I'm married to a salmon fishing attorney.  In two weeks of vacation, his angling efforts stock our freezer with enough salmon to last all year.

      Hi Gina,

      I’m jealous. That must be wonderful to have a freezer full of salmon, restocked once a year. The dollar value probably pays for your husband’s vacation and the health value is unmeasureable in good health benefits.

      Thanks for sharing.

      Hi Veronica,

      You are smart to not jump on the latest thing out… it can save you from making serious wrong decisions about your health. The company I work with, NeoLife never puts a product out just because its the latest thing. We do our research very thoroughly along with our own tests in order to always know our products are credible and the best from the best source. I’ve been with the company since 1985. In almost 30 years I have not known of any time we’ve needed to pull a product back because it was not from leading edge technology.

      Supplements definitely have a place in a healthy lifestyle.

      Thanks for your visit and comment.

      Pat

    Very, very interesting! I've come to the conclusion it's best to just eat naturally. Meaning no processed foods, and organic when possible. Fruits, veggies, and modest amount of meats. You're article really made me think about what we are doing to other species and their food supply. Interesting…

      Yes, Don, it is best to eat naturally with no processed foods and organic when possible. But how many of us really do eat that way? And are the nutrients we need really in our food? Most of us do not live an active enough life style to burn off the calories of getting all our nutrients from our food. Even when we eat the best we possibly can we are still bombarded with so many things. This means we need to supplement to keep our bodies at a lower risk of disease and illness. Back in 2002, The Journal of the American Medical Association suggested that the time had come where virtually everyone should supplement the diet for prevention of chronic disease. 

      My case is that when you do supplement, it is important to supplement with the best quality available. Supplements, just like food should be free from toxins, should not be fragmented, and should be selected and prepared to receive the best possible spectrum of nutrients.

      Stay healthy!

    This was great info, since a family member just started taking krill oil since the taste was better compared to the fish oil.  They were also sold on the fact that it was better for them.  After reading this  I will definitely pass on the info.

    Thanks

    Love how you really present the facts in all your articles, Pat. Many people I know in the health arena have been promoting krill oil and personally I have stuck with my Wholmega wild salmon supplement. Appreciate your presentation of the pros and cons and how committed you are to making sure people are educated!

      Hi Beverley,

      Thank you! I had not heard of Wholemega so looked it up. Looks like it is distributed by several different sources but is from wild salmon. That is a big plus. Of course, I did a little comparison. You would have to take about twice the recommended amount to get the same as our NeoLife Salmon Oil Plus for about the same cost. Even so it seems to be one of the better salmon oil supplements available.

      As for me, I’ll stick to NeoLife Salmon Oil Plus. I know I can trust what is in it and I know it works.

      Blessings, Pat

      Hi Meryl,

      Some sharing is easy and some is challenging like this topic. It is distressing to me to hear (on radio or TV) or read misinformed information from experts the public has come to trust. In my almost 30 years of working in the nutrition field I have seen so much of this. My sources of information have been so reliable over the years. I’ve never found they have had to change their mind on information they put out. That gives me a great feeling of confidence.

      Thanks for being a faithful and supportive reader.

      Pat

    Hello Pat,

    I've been taking Omega 3's for awhile now.  Not sure who the fisherman is in terms of the source.  Maybe now that you have mentioned it, I will find out.  Thanks for opening my eyes on this.

      Hi Nate,

      It is a good idea to know the source of your supplements. There is so much junk on the market.

      Get informed and stay informed – that is my misson.

    Everything you've written is true and I tried many Krill or Fish oil supplements until i located current ones. I am taking a fish oil supplement that agrees with me, does not have a fishy taste and comes from a reputable Dr. So much conflicting info on market.

      Hi Roslyn,

      Yes, there is a lot of conflicting info on the market about all nutritional supplements. It is important to know and be informed as to what to look for in quality supplements. I was inspired to write this blog because of 2 difference well-known (in the public eye) doctors who are suggesting Krill Oil over Salmon Oil. Its interesting I can read or watch on TV things they say. Some of it is true and some of it is showmanship and I have to wonder if its $$’s. That is one of the reasons I am so passionate about what I do.

      Be informed – your health will benefit.

      Pat
