Q: Can krill oil cause gout or kidney stones?

A: Well it is a shellfish. The lawyer types would probably want me to say that seafood, shellfish, meat and some vegetables are naturally high in purines, which promotes a buildup of uric acid. This buildup may lead to gout or kidney stones.

But krill oil is highly purified and this leaves behind the purines. So for most people no, it’s not going to give you gout or kidney stones.
