- A randomised, double blind, placebo controlled trial was completed on 120 subjects using krill oil. Krill oil may assist in the maintenance of a healthy LDL:HDL cholesterol ratio in healthy people. After 12 weeks, the group taking 1.0 g of krill oil daily had a 13.4% difference in mean total cholesterol, where the group taking 2.0 g of krill oil had an 18.1% difference in mean total cholesterol. Additionally, HDL was also affected (Figure One).1
- Krill oil may also assist in the maintenance of triglycerides within the healthy range in healthy people. The mechanism behind krill oil's effect on cholesterol may be owed to its unique molecular composition of phospholipids and omega-3 acids.1
