Kori Krill Oil Omega-3s Support A Healthy Heart
Exercise, sleep and stress management are important steps to support heart health, but diet and nutrition matter too. The American Heart Association® recommends that healthy adults eat at least two servings of fatty fish per week, the best source of EPA and DHA Omega-3 fatty acids. Unfortunately, 70% of Americans are not consuming this amount meaning they are deficient in essential Omega-3s.
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 provides 250 grams of EPA and DHA Omega-3 fatty acids. [See nutrition information for total fat, saturated fat and cholesterol content.] That's the same amount of Omega-3s that you would get on average from eating two servings of fish per week.
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)1
- support normal circulation and heart rhythm
- support already normal blood pressure
Scientific papers and studies describe the importance and the benefits of ocean-sourced Omega-3 fatty acids for heart health. The “Physicians Health Study” explored the relationship between overall heart health and the Omega-3 index, and found that men between 40 and 84 years with higher blood Omega-3 fatty acid levels had better overall heart health.2 In another clinical trial, 30 adult men and women were assigned to take 1000 mg or 1500 mg of krill oil per day for 12 weeks. The trial suggests that krill oil helps support normal blood lipid levels.
