Dr Oz: Krill Oil Supplement Prevents Heart Disease
With heart disease being the number one killer of women in the United States, it is imperative that we take every precaution possible in order to ensure our heart health. Dr Oz explains that one of the ways to ensure this is with a krill oil supplement.
Benefits of Krill Oil
- Like fish oil, krill oil is rich in the omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid, EPA, and docosahexaenoic acid, DHA. EPA and DHA are important structural components of the brain, nerves and retina and they are precursors of anti-inflammatory hormone-like substances
- Omega-3 fatty acids protect against heart disease--they recommend that people with coronary heart conditions take 1g of EPA plus DHA daily and people with high blood triglycerides should take 1 to 4 g daily.
- The potent anti-inflammatory properties of omega-3 fatty acids also make them a beneficial nutrient for people suffering from conditions characterized by excess inflammation.
