Krill Oil supports cardiovascular and brain health, helps reduce blood glucose levels and improves glucose tolerance.
It provides antioxidant support, inhibits inflammatory factors, enhances mitochondrial function and improves overall body and mental function whilst supporting joint health and range of motion.
Taking Krill Oil as a supplement also helps counter excessive omega-6 fatty acid food intake.
Because of the high concentration of marine phospholipids Krill Oil is more easily absorbed and utilised by the body than standard omega-3 fatty acids found in other fish oils.
Apart from being important for heart health, krill oil is also beneficial for brain function. Additionally, it has been seen to decrease inflammation, reduce blood glucose levels and improve glucose tolerance, lower blood pressure and triglycerides, and is necessary for normal development and function of the adrenal glands, brain, eyes, inner ear, and reproductive tract. Krill oil is required for the manufacture of certain prostaglandins (hormones that affect inflammation, decrease menstrual cramps, and increase immune function). Omega-3s are also involved in cell-to-cell communication.
