Red Krill oil is packed full of stable and easily absorbable omega 3. As a result, studies have shown that it has a number of remarkable health benefits and appears to be especially beneficial for joint, brain and heart health.
Red Krill Oil and its components have positive effects on vascular, brain and joint health. Low levels of High-density lipoproteins (HDL – known as good cholesterol) and high levels of Low-density lipoproteins (LDL – known as bad cholesterol) increase heart disease risk. Studies show that Red Krill Oil can remarkably affect the balance of these cholesterol levels, reduce joint inflammation and decrease symptoms of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis by up to 30%. In addition, Omega 3 (contained within Red Krill) has been shown to potentially ward off and reduce the symptoms of a variety of degenerative brain disorders.
