Krill Oil

Krill is the name of a shrimp like crustacean specie that inhabits the oceans of the world. It is an invertebrate and the name comes from the Norwegian word krill meaning “young fry of fish”. Krill is known to be at the bottom of the food chain and is the main source of sustenance for baleen whales and are found to be high in omega 3 fatty acids. Krill oil is the oil which is derived from this crustacean specie. It is often marketed as part of a supplement or sometimes as a standalone product as it has many benefits on its own.

Krill Oil and Cholesterol

Many of us are always seeking of ways to aid lower our cholesterol levels. Well, this supplement might just be the thing for you. Krill oil has been touted in the recent decade as possibly something that aids in lowering total LDL in the body or better known as bad cholesterol.

Aside from lowering the bad cholesterol or LDL it has been found to help increase levels of HDL or good cholesterol. Researchers believe that it is the unique molecular structure of the krill oil that allows it to be more potent.
