A systematic review
The study, published April 20 in the journal Clinical Nutrition, looked at a group of adults over the age of 65, all engaged in less than an hour a week of training.
For six months, one group of these participants took four grams per day of krill oil, while the control group took a supplement of other oils.
They found that the group taking krill oil at the end of the experimental period had greater grip strength and knee extension strength, and had thicker, toned outer thigh muscles.
This study suggests that polyunsaturated fatty acids Omega-3 Long-chain (fatty acids contained in the supplement) could help protect against the loss of muscle mass and function that occurs naturally as we age.
Krill oil is also good for heart health and can help fight inflammation. Furthermore, it also appears to have positive effects on mood.
However, it has been shown to have a blood thinning effect, so it is not recommended for those taking anticoagulants. Before taking supplements it is always advisable to consult your doctor.
