Yes: They are variants on the same theme - both contain Omega 3 fatty acids.
Dr. Jeff McFadden

Yes.: Just take the recommended amounts stated in the bottles. If you get upset stomach, flatulence, increased belching or other GI problems you may have to decrease amounts or discontinue one of the supplements.

A 56-year-old male asked:

Is krill the best type of fish oil to take?

2 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Shawn Saunders

No: If omega-3's are the goal - then consider that fish obtain their omega-3's from algae which is stored in their fat cells = fish oil ... But consider all of the potential toxins in fish/krill. Research omega-3's sourced from algae and avoid both toxic fish by products. Why not go to the source? It just makes sense.
