Lena Burri, PhD, a respected researcher and scientific writer specializing in omega-3 phospholipids, has authored a new white paper: “Optimizing The Omega-3 Index with Krill Oil,” reported Aker BioMarine.

The paper was funded by Aker BioMarine, a reported integrated biotechnology company dedicated to the sustainable harvest of krill and development of krill-derived products, and the data presented in this paper summarize the advantages of krill oil in regard to raising a person’s Omega-3 Index.

Studies suggest that krill oil more effectively raises the Omega-3 Index compared to fish oil, even though krill oil delivers lower amounts of EPA and DHA on a gram per gram basis, according to the company.

“Omega-3s are some of the most sought after nutritional ingredients in the world, and the most researched,” said Becky Wright, marketing director, Aker BioMarine Antarctic US. “To that end, it is imperative that we continue investigating marine sources, like krill, to provide the public with information, so they can make an educated decision on which omega-3 source is right for them.”

The Omega-3 Index, an Important Diagnostic Tool

According to Aker BioMarine, the Omega-3 Index is a diagnostic tool that is quickly becoming more popular with medical professionals and consumers. In addition to helping assess an individual’s cardiovascular health, the Omega-3 Index offers additional insight into a person’s general state of well-being based on the amount of omega-3s in their blood.
