Supporting Muscle Health with Krill Oil

krill oil capsulesCod liver oil is a type of fish oil supplement. Like regular fish oil, it’s high in omega-3 fatty acids, which are linked to many health benefits, including reduced inflammation and lower blood pressure. It also contains vitamins A and D, both of which provide many other health benefits. Like cod liver oil, krill oil contains high levels of omega-3s, but krill oil is different because it also has significant levels of choline and astaxanthin. These nutrients have wonderful benefits for the body, specifically for muscle health and muscle recovery.

Krill oil has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties and also support muscle health and recovery by lowering the risks of prolonged oxidative stress and inflammation from physically demanding exercise.

The body has a limited ability to produce choline, so most of the choline is supplied through the diet. Unfortunately, 90% of Americans do not have proper choline intake in their diet. Krill oil can prevent choline depletion, thus limiting muscle damage and exhaustion. The astaxanthin found in krill oil also helps support the immune system and fight off free radical production during exercise.
