    As far as I am aware, as long as you're getting a good grade of fish oil with decent omega balance (or just omega 3) then they're all good.  No idea whether krill is better than other sources but I do tend to pick up a pot to take alongside standard fish oils - always good to mix things up every now and again.

    I like the idea of mixing it up, think I'll get some Krill oil and take that on alternate days :)
     
    Thanks mate :)

    Krill oil superior option in my opinion, but has a price tag to match. Lots of good quality fish oils available which will be fine, and other oil blends.

    I'm a huge fan of Udos oil. Just can't justify the price! So I supplement with Fish Oil capsules and a tin or two of sardines a week :)

    This krill oil on amazon.co.uk is 180 caps for £26
     
    Ingredients:
    Krill Oil 500mg, Astaxanthin 40mcg, Omega 3 - 110mg, Omega 9 - 40mg, Omega 6 - 10mg or less, Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Gelatin Shell (Vanilla Odour).
     
    It says 1-2 caps a day - would you agree with that? That would work out at 15p or 30p a day. Is that better value than fish or cod oil?
     
    Thanks.

    I decided to use both cod liver oil at 10g per day and 2 capsules of Bulk Powders krill oil.
     
    Been using that for 3 weeks now.
     
    My knees feel a great deal better, but I started taking collagen & cissus PLUS started TRT 2 weeks ago, so far too many variables to say what's working.
     
    I figured I'd just take all the well reviewed joint/ligament supplements, ongoing :)

    Krill oil has a greater amount of the omegas and Astaxanthin (which is just about the best anti-oxidant known to man)
    IIRC something like 7 times as effective as Fish oils.
    The price is something like three times the cost so it works out cheaper.
    Another concern I have with fish oils is the potential mercury content. If my understanding is correct this isn`t an issue with Krill.
    The only problem I have found with Krill oil is that it stinks even when kept in the fridge. 
     
    Consuming Collagen can not have any benefits as it will be simply digested and broken down into proteins. I wouldn`t waste my money on it.

    For increased collagen deposition you are better off looking at HGH or GHRP Peptides.

    I would have thought that increasing Collagen intake would increase the amount available for use by the skins matrix, and give you a more youthful appearance.
     
    As for Mercury, it's antagonist is Selenium, ensure that is plentiful in your multi-vit or buy a specialist supp. 

    Btw I make sure I'm buying about £30 a month on vits, as I always say, better to have expensive pi55 than lack nutrients.

    cost to benefit.
    and really just splitting hairs.
    I only find fish oil etc useful for joints at high doses, 8g plus, so fish oil would be more affordable by a country mile, benefits from just 2 krill oil per day, minimal, running it at a high dose would wreck your wallet.
    tried celadrin creams? great for joints.

    I don't think krill oil is better for your joints but yes for your health in general as it has astaxanthin (really good anti oxidant) Better stuff for joints like cissus for example. Or tb 500 is good for horses :-)

    I switched to Krill oil over a year ago and sticking with it, worth the price imo...
