Medical research has identified a source of omega-3 fatty acids that’s been shown superior to fish oil supplements in head-to-head testing. It’s found to be healthier, safer, more potent and more absorbable. It’s called krill oil.
Krill is a shrimp-like crustacean that abounds in the ocean. In fact, this tiny sea creature is a favorite food of marine life, including Beluga whales. Krill are almost 100 percent free of heavy metals and other toxins. By contrast, large predatory fish, which sometimes are the sources for fish oil, may be “filled to the gills” with dangerous toxins.
The reason krill oil is more effective than other marine oils is the amount of omega-3 fatty acids, phospholipids and extremely potent antioxidants it contains. It’s the unique combination of these essential ingredients that provides the greatest health benefits.
Krill oil has been shown to outperform fish oil supplements when it comes to lowering your bad, low-density lipoprotein (LDL), cholesterol levels. Patients who took 1 to 1.5 grams (g) of krill oil a day—compared to three times that dose in fish oil—showed a significantly greater decrease in bad cholesterol than the fish oil patients.
In an Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) test, krill oil was shown to contain 300 times the amount of vitamins A and E, plus 48 times the antioxidant power of standard omega-3 fish oils.
Krill oil contains a healthy balance of omega-3 fatty acids and omega-6 fatty acids—which help fight infection. These two types of fatty acids need each other to be most effective in the body. They work together to prevent inflammation-related ailments like heart disease, arthritis and diabetes. As you very well might guess, taking omega-3s every day can be lifesaving.
Boosting your intake of healthy omega-3 fats can help you soothe your minor joint aches… promote healthy blood sugar balance… promote healthy heart and brain function… improve memory and “senior moments”… support healthy cholesterol levels… promote healthy blood pressure… provide healthy support for PMS symptoms… and promote healthy mood levels. Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for your diet—and should be supplemented since your body doesn’t produce them in significant amounts on its own.
