The Omega 3 Battle: Krill Oil Vs. Omega 3 Eggs

Omega 3 eggs are not the most effective option in the market today to get your daily Omega 3 and meet your daily nutritional needs.



Health Benefits of Omega 3

Omega 3 Eggs

The health benefits of omega 3 fatty acids have become so widely known and accepted that manufacturers are fighting it out in a vicious battle to meet public demands for this supplement.

It started as the battle of fish oil capsules, but more effective options are now on the market. If you can include salmon or other fish in your diet at least two or three times per week you may not need supplements, but most people are now looking to krill oil supplements and eggs with omega 3 to meet their daily nutritional needs.

Why Krill Oil Supplements Are Better

Krill oil supplements must be taken in pill or capsule form each day, but eggs can be consumed as breakfast or any other meal of the day. Eggs also provide protein and some vitamins and minerals that are needed for health, but keep in mind they are also high in less healthy fats which do not make an appearance in krill supplements.

Many consumers prefer the convenience of taking one supplement and knowing they have met their daily needs for omega 3 fatty acids. Before you make a decision based solely on whether you want to cook your supplement or just chase it down with water, think about your body’s ability to absorb the omega 3 into your system and make use of it.
Krill oil has beat fish oil supplements because consumers now realize that the structural differences in these two sources of omega 3 are significant. Krill oil is easier for the body to absorb, which means your body makes use of more omega 3 when you take a krill oil supplement. A high quality, pure krill oil supplement will meet your daily requirements for omega 3 fatty acids without requiring you to cook a meal.

Omega 3 enriched eggs are created by feeding hens a special feed that contains omega 3 fatty acids. This feed is often lower in omega 6 fats, which are unhealthy for your body. These eggs may not have all of the nutritional benefits of non-enriched eggs, but they are a little less in the “bad fat” department and much richer in the “good fat” department.
The problem is omega 3 eggs may not contain as much omega 3 fatty acids as you would receive through a daily krill oil supplement. You also have to consume calories and prepare a meal to get your omega 3 fatty acids through eggs. A krill oil supplement can be taken every day, whether you feel like having an omelet for breakfast or not. Krill oil supplements are far more convenient and likely give your body more nutritional value.

A good strategy is to take a daily krill oil supplement and then consume omega 3 eggs, walnuts, fresh fish, and other sources of omega 3 fatty acid as much as possible. If your diet falls short some days, you are not sacrificing the omega 3 your body needs
