Freshest Krill Oil?

I'm currently supplementing around 0.5-1tsp of fish oil a few times a week, from a bottle of TG-bound fish oil I keep in the fridge, which I bought off a supermarket shelf.  I've read that polyunsaturated fats (omega-3s in particular) are prone to rancidity and peroxidation, where I'm thinking I would like to upgrade to something much fresher, possible in a different form, and in capsules.  Lately, I prefer lower dosages.


 


I came across Herring Roe phospholipids, which look interesting (more DHA, and more choline) than Krill, although I'm intrigued by Krill's astaxanthin content.  NutraSea's algae-derived oil also looks interesting, as a source of GLA / SDA / DHA, which I can buy fresh with a CoA directly from the manufacturer in Canada.


 


What's the freshest Krill Oil that I can buy online from the manufacturer?  Is this an ideal phospholipid / omega-3 supplement?

  • Why krill and not cod liver oil?


     


    How about Rosita EV Cod Liver oil, I think the only properly produced raw cod liver oil there is:

    Cod liver oil might be a great match -- I wouldn't mind the bonus vitamin A.  It's interesting how much variance there seems to be in the retinol content -- Rosita looks like it provides 3000-5000IU per teaspoon (~80% DV), while Carlson cod liver oil is rated at 850IU per teaspoon (17%DV).


     


    I like the idea of phospholipid-bound omega-3's and astaxanthin, which has me interested in Krill oil.  My diet is fairly low in polyunsaturated fats, where I don't need too much in the supplement -- 300mg of n-3 in a 1g dose of NKO is probably somewhat ideal.


     



     


    Edit: I ended up going with the NKO from Pure Encapsulations purchased through PureFormulas -- this stuff smells a lot like rotten fish oil sprayed with vanilla perfume -- just a single capsule is noticeably unfriendly (compared with my previous TG oil from NutraSea in Canada which was completely odorless out of the bottle and tasted excellent.)  I was under the impression that Krill was supposed to be less likely to oxidize and capsules were less likely to oxidize, yet.  Hmm.  Maybe I'll go with virgin cod liver oil or stick with NutraSea in the future (or eat more seafood) and supplement straight astaxanthin.  I'm curious about algae and herring roe derived oils.
