The Advantages of Krill Oil Supplements

Antarctic KrillThe debate never ends. Fish oil supplements versus krill oil supplements. This subject has been a popular discussion among health experts as well as users for many years. Both products offer excellent health benefits and a recent study confirms another good result for krill oil supplements.

A new study collected the effects of 12 weeks of daily krill oil supplementation on fasting serum triglyceride (TG) and lipoprotein particle levels in subjects whose habitual fish intake is low and who have borderline high or high fasting serum TG levels (150–499 mg/dL). Researchers concluded that krill oil lowers serum TG levels in subjects with borderline high or high fasting TG levels. The data included 300 male and female subjects in a double-blind, randomized, multi-center, placebo-controlled study. Relative to subjects in the placebo group, those administered krill oil had a statistically significant calculated reduction in serum TG levels of 10.2%. Moreover, LDL-C levels were not increased in the krill oil groups relative to the placebo group. The outcome of the pooled analysis suggests that krill oil is effective in reducing a cardiovascular risk factor.

Krill oil contains omega-3 fatty acids which have been clinically proven to be more efficiently absorbed by our body as they are carried to our body cells in a phospholipid form. Unlike fish oil (which is 61-65% bioavailable), it mimics the very membranes of your cells, thus penetrating so easily that you get 95-98% of what you pay for. In addition, a super-antioxidant found only in krill oil is an ultra-potent nutrient, stronger than most other antioxidants including Co-Q10, for protection from the free radical damage that promotes aging and disease.

Krill oil contains the three most important elements the human body needs to function properly: phospholipids, omega-3 essential fatty acids (similar to those of fish oil), and astaxanthin, a very powerful antioxidant.
