Take Kori Krill® Oil Omega-3s For Brain Health*

60% of the brain’s dry weight is fat and essential fatty acids in the membrane of nerve cells account for 20% of that. The junctions where nerve cells connect with each other contain even higher concentrations of essential fatty acid (up to 60% DHA!). It’s no surprise then that Omega-3 EPA & DHA are especially important for the human brain. They act as both building blocks and as brain cell lubricants, and function in the cell membranes where they are anchored by phospholipid molecules to help make these membranes flexible.

Both DHA and EPA Omega-3s generate neuroprotective molecules and have been found by researchers to support brain health.1,2,3,4,5 Omega-3 EPA seems more influential on mood and behavior, whereas Omega-3 DHA is essential to both prenatal and postnatal brain development. Since the concentration of Omega-3 DHA in the brain is dependent on dietary intake, it’s important that Omega-3 DHA is consumed from a healthy fish diet or through supplements like Kori Krill Oil.

Kori Krill Oil contains Omega-3 DHA, important for brain function and metabolism, as well as phospholipids which 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.6
