Higher levels of HDL (“Good”) cholesterol reduce the risk of heart disease. A recent study has shown that supplementation with Krill Oil can increase this “Good” cholesterol by 14% compared with just 3% using fish oils.
Furthermore, a reduction in triglycerides in the blood is also known to reduce the risks of heart disease and the study showed that supplementing with Cleanmarine® Krill Oil reduced triglycerides by 13% as opposed to 1% using fish oil.
