We often talk about krill oil as a potent source of Omega-3s to benefit your heart but new research shows that krill oil also has substantial benefits for people with obesity related disorders.
Chief among them, according to a study by Aker BioMarine, shows that krill oil was able to suppress fat accumulation and prevented weight gain when given to rats on a high fat diet. The study, performed at the University of Salento in Italy, used rats on low fat and high fat diets to see how krill oil would affect their metabolism.
They found that krill oil was able to suppress the collection of large amounts of triglycerides and other fats inside liver cells despite a diet that is overly excessive in fat.
Similar studies have also found that krill oil has been shown to assist with obesity related inflammation and metabolism disorders. Krill oil also helps support joint health among those suffering from obesity or joint problems.
Krill oil is the much more effective and potent cousin of more mainstream fish oil capsules. Not only does krill oil provide a more effective source of Omega-3 fatty acids which helps support heart health, they also have a wide variety of effective active ingredients that regular fish oil capsules simply don’t.
Research consistently shows that Americans do not get the necessary amount of Omega-3s in their diet, as little as one-fifth recommended daily amount (250 mg per day). This makes krill oil supplements that much more important, especially with these new potential benefits for people with high fat diets.
