Krill oil supplementation appears to be beneficial as it decreases cardiovascular disease risk parameters through its effects on plasma a triacylglycerol (TAGs), lipoprotein particles, fatty acid profile, redox status and possibly inflammation.
A 28 days intervention study assessing effect-parameters of dietary supplementation with krill oil (832.5 mg EPA and DHA per day) in 17 healthy volunteers (18-36 years).
Plasma lipids, lipoprotein particle sizes, fatty acid composition in plasma and red blood cells (RBCs), plasma cytokines, antioxidant capacity, acylcarntines, carnitine, choline, betaine, and trimethylamine-N-oxide (TMAO) were measured before and after supplementation.
Plasma TAG and large very-low density lipoprotein & chylomicron particle concentrat...
