The best preferred sources of DHA & EPA are found in seafood sources like salmon and sardines. Read more about Global intakes of Omega-3 & options to increase your intake below.
The omega-3 index is believed to mirror overall tissue EPA and DHA levels and therefore a person’s health status. An omega-3 index of 8% or above is considered optimal, while a low omega-3 index indicates a higher risk of sudden cardiac death. Studies suggest that krill oil not only raises plasma omega-3 levels more effectively than fish oil, but also the omega-3 index, even though krill oil delivers lower amounts of EPA and DHA on a gram per gram basis compared to fish oil. Clear health benefits, in particular for heart health, have been shown by raising one’s omega-3 index higher than 8%.
Krill oil also contains the antioxidant astaxanthin that protects the unsaturated bonds in the FAs from oxidative damage, which may further influence the biological effects of krill oil. More importantly, krill oil contains choline, which is absent in fish oil. Both PL and choline supplementation have their own health benefits, which gives krill oil the potential to improve health concerns that are characterized by phospholipid and/or choline deficiency. Reduced phospholipid and choline levels are seen in e.g. heart disease, liver and brain disorders, intestinal inflammation, lung and skin diseases or after intense exercise. Krill oil supplementation can help to heal membranes and to optimize n-3 PUFA, phospholipid and choline status in the body. The all-in-one advantage of krill oil delivering simultaneously n-3 PUFAs, phospholipids and choline gives it a unique position in the omega-3 market. However, the full elucidation of how much each component benefits human health must await further study.
