Spring Valley Krill Oil changed my life! Now I realize that's a pretty big claim to make, but it's true. You see, I was in a car cash when I was younger that resulted in a traumatic brain injury. It took years to recover, but there were still long-term side effects like headaches, chronic fatigue, brain fog, memory loss, and repetitive speech. Stress only exacerbated these issues and I was basically told by every physician I'd seen that there was nothing they could do… or so I was led to believe. Turns out brain cells benefit greatly from omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA, both of which are found in krill oil. DHA is vital for brain development and maintenance, while EPA is closely related to behavior and mood. Together these molecules offer critical neuroprotective benefits. 100% krill oil provides a phospholipid form of omega-3s plus astaxanthin, a powerful carotenoid. Studies show that people with higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids in their blood experience improved brain function. This has certainly been the case for me. I began taking Spring Valley Krill Oil four years ago, along with a vitamin D3 supplement, and the results have been truly life changing. I no longer stumble through life in a fog like a brain dead zombie. My energy level skyrocketed and my memory has greatly improved. I can now focus on more than one task at a time without feeling lost or confused. Headaches have become a thing of the past and I rarely repeat myself unless I'm really stressed or tired. All this and I haven't even mentioned the other benefits of taking krill oil yet, like how it promotes cardiovascular health, reduces joint inflammation, eases PMS symptoms, improves gastric health, and may even help ease anxiety and depression. Fish oil offers similar benefits but it's not as bioavailable as krill oil, which means it doesn't absorb well. I tried fish oil first, but it it left me feeling nauseous and belching fishiness for the rest of the day - which tastes just as nasty and it sounds let me tell you! - so I turned to krill oil as a gentler, more effective alternative and haven't looked back since! Spring Valley Krill Oil is made with purified water and doesn't contain gluten or soy, both of which can negatively impact the endocrine system. Simply take one easy-to-swallow 350mg softgel every day and you will see benefits, too. It won't happen overnight, your body needs time to absorb the krill to begin the healing process, but it will happen eventually. I noticed a gradual boost in cognitive function, motor skills, energy, and mood over the course of several weeks, but it took a few good months of taking krill faithfully every day to see significant improvement. I've also benefited from a decrease in bad cholesterol (HDL) and joint pain. Needless to say, I love krill oil and plan on taking it for the rest of my life. I honestly can't recommend this product highly enough. Thank you, Spring Valley, for giving me a second chance at life!
