Krill Oil May Reduce Arthritis Symptoms

A new study published in the journal BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders concludes the omega-3’s and antioxidants in your daily krill oil supplement may reduce symptoms of arthritis.

The study, which compared krill and fish oil, showed that the addition of EPA and DHA to the diet of mice reduced inflammation associated with arthritis.

Per NUTRAingredients.com:

“Results showed that animals supplemented with krill or fish oil experienced significant reductions in measures of arthritis and swelling of the hind paw compared to a control animals not supplemented with EPA and DHA. The effects were greater for the krill oil than fish oil, said the researchers.”

The arthritis score was reduced by 47 percent in the krill oil group compared with 26 percent for animals in fish oil group.
