Research indicates that krill oil is nearly forty seven times more effective reducing free radials in the body when compared with fish oil and at no additional cost! Health practitioners have always advised people to get their daily dose of fish oil either through their diet or in the form of cod liver oil capsules that are also loaded with the same antioxidants that reduce the percentage of free radicals in the body that are responsible for various health problems as well as aging.
Studies indicate that it is time for people to upgrade to krill oil because it works better than other omega-3 oils and it has many more health benefits. Because KRILL are tiny deep water crustaceans, they are free of unhealthy toxins and pollution found in regular fish oil. More good news is that it costs the same as fish oil. Scientists R. Bunea, K. Farrah, and L. Deutsch who work at the McGill University proved that it was far superior when compared with regular fish oil. Clinical studies prove that it promotes easier and quicker weight loss due to the stabilization of the body’s blood sugar levels and an improve metabolism of glucose.
Some notable benefits is the reduction of inflammation, prevention of the formation of blood clots, and reduction of high blood pressure, which prevents stroke and decreases the risk of heart attack. The WOMAC scores (Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index) obtained from McMaster University and Western Ontario University demonstrated that with krill oil, rheumatoid pain reduced by as much as three times in just seven days when compared with regular fish oil.
According to authors Dr. Reg Saynor and Dr. Frank Ryan it is a super food supplement. Their research suggests that it the prevents the formation of a blood clot that reduces the risk of developing a heart attack. It also provides women relief from their PMS symptoms and decreases joint pain. krill oil contains a powerful antioxidant called astaxanthin that readily crosses the blood-brain barrier, which promotes clearer thinking, a better memory, and better moods. Its antioxidant power is almost 300 times greater than fish oil as suggested by the standard ORAC value with a 500% better absorption rate according to the NIH.
One of the primary health benefits of krill oil is the fact that the omega-3 fats such as eicosapentanoic acid (EPA) and docosahexanoic acid (DHA) are found in a double chain phospholipid structure. This makes the EPA and DHA, along with other potent antioxidants more absorbable than the triglyceride form that is found in fish oil.
Bad cholesterol percentages using fish oil dropped by 2% compared with Krill oil that reduced bad cholesterol by as much as 32%; Krill oil was 16 times more effective and the same phenomenon was reported for the increase in the levels of good cholesterol as it was found to better than regular fish oil by nearly a factor of 10.
A recent study in Archives Of Neurology showed that people who consumed enough krill oil had 60% less risk of memory problems than those that did consume enough Krill oil. The findings also indicate Krill oil helps with the generation of new nerve tissue in the brain creating more mental cognition resulting in less mental decline. I don’t know about you, but I’m all for improved memory, more mental cognition and less mental decline!
