Studies related to LDL-C and Krill Oil

Evaluation Of The Effects Of Neptune Krill Oil On The Clinical Course Of Hyperlipidemia

Effect Decrease
Trial Design Double blind
Trial Length 1-6 months
Number of Subjects 120
Gender Both Genders
Age Range 30-44, 45-64, 65+
Body Types Obese, Overweight
Notes for this study:
In hyperlipidemic subjects, supplementation of various doses of krill oil (1-3g) daily for 90 days resulted in remarkable reductions in LDL-C and improvements in HDL-C which outperformed the comparator of fish oil (3g daily).

Metabolic Effects Of Krill Oil Are Essentially Similar To Those Of Fish Oil But At Lower Dose Of EPA And DHA, In Healthy Volunteers

Effect None
Trial Design Cohort
Trial Length 1-6 months
Number of Subjects 115
Gender Both Genders
Age Range 30-44, 45-64
Body Types Average
Notes for this study:
This study noted comparable effects of krill oil (3,000mg, 543mg EPA+DHA) and fish oil (1,800mg, 864mg EPA+DHA) on serum biomarkers of lipid metabolism and oxidation over 7 weeks in otherwise healthy volunteers of both genders. Despite minimal changes in lipid parameters (most trending towards significance) there was a significant improvement in the HDL-C;Triglyceride ratio

Lipid peroxidation measures may be somewhat skewed as there was a Vitamin E content of the supplement, but no serum increase in Vitamin E was detected. A trend towards lower serum Vitamin E was noted.
