QUEBEC CITYNeptune Krill Oil passed a third-party quality certification by consumerlab.com. The krill oil passed all criteria, including the absence of harmful PCB levels and containing 100 percent of claimed amount of EPA, DHA and other fatty acids. Consumerlab.com has 13 years of testing experience, and Neptune Krill Oil hopes the endorsement validates its product's integrity to consumers.
Krill oil is praised for its health benefits, especially for the heart, brain and joints. In 2011, Dr. Oz said krill oil may be a "faster and stronger" omega-3 source than fish oil.
