Native Path Nutritionals is a supplements company based in the USA. The company was co-founded and is headed by Dr Chad Walding, who you can find and connect with on Facebook. According to Chad, “for the past decade, I’ve been battling Big Pharma on the frontlines by providing natural solutions to my follower’s health concerns.” He also claims to be leading a health revolution more than million strong on Facebook but with fewer than 5000 followers, it seems he has a way to go before this happens.
Native Path Antarctic Krill is a general health supplement aimed at Seniors, and as a result comes with advertising that claims that it is going to remove the problems of ageing pretty much instantly. If you are expecting this to happen, you will be disappointed because although Krill is certainly good for health, it is very similar to other fish oils and can cause side effects. There is a campaign to get Krill fishing banned, because of the impact upon so many endangered species. Native Path Antarctic Krill looks very similar to other Krill supplements on the market, yet is as much as three times more expensive.
If you are allergic to shellfish, this supplement will provoke an allergic reaction. Symptoms include; hives, itchiness, swelling, including the face and throat, wheezing and chestiness, tingling sensation in mouth, dizziness or fainting, vomiting and nausea, diarrhoea, and abdominal pain. Other side effects may include blood thinning and a reaction with prescription medication.
Native Path Antarctic Krill is very expensive, especially when compared to other Krill supplements on the market. Buy from the official product website and it costs $49.00 for 90 capsules.
You can make savings on larger orders. 3 bottles costs $124.00, and 6 bottles costs $205.00.
Remember this supplement does come with a guarantee, but this only applies to one bottle.
You can also buy Native Path Antarctic Krill via the Native Path website, where it costs a whopping $65.00 a bottle.
It is also on sale via Amazon USA where it costs $47.00. Nobody seems to have bought it from Amazon, which is hardly surprising when you see that comparable supplements are on sale for around $18.00.
We make no bones about it; we just don’t like Native Path Antarctic Krill. The product website is patronising to Seniors, making unproven claims about how this supplement will help people look and feel young again, and how you should throw away your medication in favour of this supplement. It will not work as well as claimed and if anyone was daft enough to follow this dodgy advice, it could cause medical problems.
In addition, we are not impressed by company CEO, Chad Walding. He creates an impression of caring, sharing, green principles as the face of Native Path Nutritionals, yet is selling a Krill supplement. Wake up and smell the coffee! There is a global campaign to get krill fishing banned before it causes serious ecological damage, so this really does not fit in with the company image in any way at all.
Is it really worth taking Krill anyway? Some experts do believe that Krill may be better for health than fish oil, but it is not without problems of side effects. In addition, it really is not going to make that much difference to long-term health whether you consume Krill oil or any other fish oil on the market. Both are good and do have benefits for health.
Finally the price. Yes we have already mentioned this, but this supplement is massively overpriced. It is just not worth it, and Amazon readers seem to agree by staying away from this supplement.
All things considered, we do not recommend Native Path Antarctic Krill to the Watchdog readers.

Native Path Antarctic Krill is a fish oil supplement aimed at men and women over 40, and according to the advertising is a super nutrient which will benefit heart, joint, and mental health.
Many people take fish oil for health, such as cod liver oil, but krill oil is said to be superior because it is higher in fatty acids omega 3 and better absorbed by the body. Krill oil is based on phosphalid oil – a component of the cells in the body, unlike other fish oils which contain natural triglycerides.
According to research, Krill may have additional benefits to health over other types of oil. It seems to be effective at reducing inflammation or the joint pain of arthritis, it may have a positive effect upon mood and mental functioning, and research has suggested it is really good for heart health.
With all these positive advantages to Krill, many people are now taking Krill oil supplements. This may be very good for health, but ecologically it looks like a disaster.
Krill are tiny crustaceans that look like micro sized shrimps, and they live in all the oceans of the world. They play a crucial role in the food chain because they are the major food for sea creatures, including whales, seals, penguins, dolphins, and squid.
Krill are also important in removing the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, by eating carbon-rich food near the surface and excreting it when they sink to lower, colder water.
According to Greenpeace, if industrialised krill fishing in the Antarctic continues at this pace, numbers of endangered sea creatures especially whales and penguins will reduce by a third. Krill fishing is unsustainable, and recently there has been a global campaign to stop this practice.
In the UK, this is proving successful. Krill products have recently been removed from the shelves of UK businesses such as major retailers Boots and Holland & Barrett, thanks to the Green peace campaign. Source
Native Path Nutritionals is a company that claims to subscribe to ecological principles. Headed by Dr Chad Walding, the company specialises in health products that are slightly alternative and in the so-called “natural health” category of products. Therefore we find it surprising that he is still marketing this krill supplement, when it seems that any company with a conscience should be dropping it.
Native Path Antarctic Krill is sold via a one page sales website, that bombards you with facts and figures and true life testimonials about the benefits of this supplement. It is also on sale via the Native Path Nutritionals website.
In addition, you can follow Native Path Nutritionals and Dr Chad Walding on Facebook where he demonstrates exercises for improving posture and mobility which look very good, health advice about diet, and general positive messages.
Dr Chad Walding looks pretty popular and he does have his fans, but nowhere near the million as claimed in his advertising because at the time of writing he only has 4,143 people following.
According to the product advertising
“Tucked away 73 miles off the Antarctic coast…In some of the only untouched, clean waters our earth has left…Researchers uncovered what could be the biggest medical leap in decades…A Deep-sea Supernutrient So Unimaginably Effective, It Could ERASE Many Of Your Health Concerns IN AS FEW AS 7 DAYS”
If these waters are untouched, does it really make sense to then go and industrially fish them until the Krill, a crucial part of the food chain is removed, creating a further ecological disaster? As the old Joni Mitchell song goes, this is a bit like paving paradise to put up a parking lot!
The advertising is aimed at an older age group. If you buy this supplement,
“Imagine by next week… leaping out of bed with joints that feel so young and cushioned, you’d swear they’re BRAND-NEW… opening jars…picking up tricky packages… even hopping in and out of your car with ease..taking stress off your heart with flawless cholesterol and blood pressure… restoring the razor sharp thinking your coworkers marvelled over decades ago… and returning to hours of gardening, dancing, and YES – even playing competitive sports without “paying for it later”.”
The advertising then brings in some clinical evidence;
According to the advertising, this supplement will enable you to enjoy
“Dumping your pills down the chute with a huge grin.”
The basic message seems to be that this supplement will make you young again.
Native Path Antarctic Krill does have positive benefits for health, but it is not going to give you joints that feel brand new and instantly return your body, mental functioning, and eyesight to the way it was when you were in your twenties as claimed.
If you expect this to happen, you will be disappointed because there is no supplement in the world that can bring back lost youth. We do not advise that you throw prescription medication away either.
However, all fish oil is good for you especially if you do not consume fish as part of your usual diet. All fish oils contain docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), which are types of omega-3 fats that the body needs but are only present in marine sources.
Recently Krill has been marketed as superior to other fish oils, but it does require further evidence to prove the claims. That said Krill is good for general health. A small study showed that taking Krill for 30 days could reduce mild joint pain and improve mobility. Source
Krill may benefit cardiovascular health too. Although all fish oil is good for heart health and can improve blood lipid levels, only Krill oil appeared to raise “good” cholesterol (HDL cholesterol). Source
Fish is often called “brain food” and this is because the omega fatty acid DHA actually makes up around 60% of brain tissue. The omega acids in fish oil and krill oil help to maintain and manufacture nerve endings and electric impulses in the brain, so can improve mental functioning.
Unlike fish oil, Krill oil contains an antioxidant molecule called Astaxanthin which has general benefits for health and immunity and although it is unproven, may help prevent against the eye disease macular degeneration.
Serving size is equal to one capsule.
Krill Oil is composed of the following active components.
Native Path Antarctic Krill may cause side effects.
It is important to remember that Krill are tiny crustaceans, so if you have a shell fish or seafood allergy this supplement will provoke a reaction. Potential effects may include;
Other side effects may include;
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Speak to your doctor before taking if you have an underlying medical condition or are taking prescription medication because this supplement could cause dangerous drug interactions.
