KRILL - Research

Improved brain function

Last year, Japanese scientists examining 45 healthy elderly males concluded that “n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids activate cognitive function in the elderly. This is especially the case with krill oil, in which the majority of n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids are incorporated in phosphatidylcholine, causing it to be more effective”. [1]

A recent 7-week rodent study found “a robust antidepressant-like potential and beneficial cognitive effect of Krill Oil”. The results indicated that the “active components (EPA, HDA, and astaxanthin) in Krill Oil facilitate learning processes”. [2]

After a 35 days experiment on healthy people, it was discovered that “Omega-3 supplementation is associated with an improvement of attentional and physiological function, particularly those involving complex cortical processing”. [3]

Reduced inflammation

A randomized, double blind, placebo controlled study on 90 patients clearly indicated that a daily dose of krill oil “significantly inhibits inflammation and reduces arthritic symptoms within a short treatment period of 7 and 14 days”. [4]

A rodent study evaluating to the impact of krill oil on arthritis found that “mice fed the krill oil diet demonstrated lower infiltration of inflammatory cells into the joint” and suggested that “krill oil may be a useful intervention strategy against the clinical and histopathological signs of inflammatory arthritis”. [5]

Krill Oil - superior to Fish Oil

A 2013 double blind, placebo-controlled study on 24 healthy volunteers found that “Krill oil consumption increased plasma n-3 PUFA concentration, including EPA and DHA, and reduced n-6:n-3 ratios compared with fish oil”. [6]

In a recent double-blind crossover trial comparing krill oil with fish oil demonstrated that “the highest incorporation of EPA+DHA into plasma phospholipid was provoked by krill oil”. Researchers found an “unexpected high content of free EPA and DHA in krill oil, which might have a significant influence on the availability of EPA+DHA from krill oil”. [7]

A study comparing krill oil with fish (menhaden) oil discovered that “when expressed per mg of EPA or DHA consumed there was a trend toward a greater increase in plasma EPA and DHA with krill oil”. [8]
