Heart Health

Supportive but not conclusive research shows that consumption of EPA and DHA Omega-3 fatty acids may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. One serving of Kori Krill Oil Standard, Small, Mini and Mind & Body softgels provides 250 grams of EPA and DHA Omega-3 fatty acids. [See nutrition information for total fat, saturated fat and cholesterol content.] Omega-3 EPA & DHA fatty acids in Kori Krill Oil may have many others benefits for our heart health too. Omega-3s may: support normal triglycerides, increase ‘good’ cholesterol (HDL), support normal circulation and heart rhythm, and support already normal blood pressure.

Brain Health

Kori Krill Oil contains Omega-3 EPA & DHA, two important nutrients for the human brain. Omega-3 EPA seems more influential on mood and behavior, whereas Omega-3 DHA is essential to both prenatal and postnatal brain development. Unlike fish oil, Kori delivers these Omega-3s in their most natural phospholipid form. Phospholipids assist with Omega-3 DHA transfer across the blood brain barrier. A randomized controlled trial with participants taking 285 mg of Omega-3 EPA & DHA from krill oil in healthy elderly individuals suggests that krill oil may support cognitive function after 12 weeks.

Immune health

The immune system is a complex and extensive system that is always on, in surveillance mode, working to keep our bodies as healthy as possible. One important immune system response is the inflammatory response. Omega-3 EPA & DHA nutrients in Kori Krill Oil play a very important role to help regulate inflammation in the body, supporting our cellular repair and internal defense systems, and maintaining the normal healthy status quo.

Joint Health

Omega-3s in Kori Krill Oil support our joints over the course of our lives, supporting joint comfort and flexibility as we age. In a clinical trial, 90 male and female patients each received 300 mg krill oil daily for 30 days. After seven days, krill oil significantly promoted joint comfort (-28.9 %), stiffness (-20.3 %) and function (-22.8 %) in comparison to the placebo group.2

Eye Health

Omega-3 DHA is found in the highest concentration in the retina, playing an especially important role in keeping our eyes healthy. It also assists in tear production which is important to eye health. Studies of animals like rodents and primates suggest that consuming Omega-3 fatty acids may help support retinal structure and health.3, 4, 5

Skin Health

Omega-3 fatty acids are important in keeping our skin hydrated and strong. Fatty acids like Omega-3s are needed to maintain the integrity of the skin’s natural protective barrier function against environmental factors and to reduce water-loss through our skin. Shortages of these fatty acids compromise the skin barrier and lead to dry skin. Kori Krill Oil’s Omega-3s secure skin moisture and help to make the skin feel smoother and softer by helping to keep it hydrated.
