Metabolic Effects Of Krill Oil Are Essentially Similar To Those Of Fish Oil But At Lower Dose Of EPA And DHA, In Healthy Volunteers
Notes for this study:
|Number of Subjects
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.
