Krill Oil contains fatty acids similar to fish oil. These fats are thought to be beneficial fats that decrease swelling, lower cholesterol, and make blood platelets less sticky. When blood platelets are less sticky they are less likely to form clots. Krill oil is somewhat different than fish oil. Omega-3 fatty acids in krill oil attach to phospholipids as opposed to triglycerides, which makes the omega-3 easier to absorb. As such, a lower dose of krill oil is required to gain the same benefit as a higher dose of standard fish oil. Extensive studies have shown how effective krill oil can be in the reduction and prevention of inflammation. Scientists suggest that omega-3 is converted by the body up into eicosanoids-powerful hormones which are responsible for several important purposes within the body including the release of anti-inflammatory prostaglandins. Krill oil may also help with PMS symptom reduction.
