Another Fish in the Sea… Almost – Krill Oil Supplements

KrillTechnically, it’s not a fish. Technically, it’s a crustacean. But no matter how you label it, krill remains a crucial part of marine life. A step above the bottom of the food chain, krill provides sustenance for schools of creatures ranging from whales to seals to sea birds. It feeds both the surface and the bottom dwellers, ensuring that the great beings have the energy needed to complete their seasonal migrations. Humans haven’t developed a fondness for krill as we have for similar crustaceans – lobster, shrimp, etc. – but we have discovered that krill has a powerful healing tool: its oil.

Krill oil, much like fish oil, is brimming with omega-3 fatty acids. One dose offers a heaping serving of EPA and DHA (the omega-3s we love the most) as well as vitamin A and E. Previous studies have linked krill oil with significant cholesterol improvements, and new research has found that it does even more than reduce LDL. When 90 patients with cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis and/or osteoarthritis took either 300mg of krill oil or a placebo every day for a month, those taking the real thing reported lessened pain, stiffness and functional impairment. What’s more, the participants’ level of C-reactive protein, a protein that at high levels increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, steadily decreased throughout the study. Those taking a placebo could not offer similar reports.

Krill may be at the bottom of the aquatic food chain, but krill oil is making its way to the top of the health chart. Add this delightful supplement to your daily routine and you’ll get your fill of omega-3s while fighting heart disease and reducing pain.

    Krill oil is oil from a tiny, shrimp-like animal. Baleen whales, mantas, and whale sharks eat primarily krill. In Norwegian, the word “krill” means “whale food.” People extract the oil from krill, place it in capsules, and use it for medicine.
