Ok, now on to the study, which showed krill oil may help prevent biochemical changes related to obesity.
It's known that a high-fat diet, rich in omega-6 fatty acids, is associated with increased levels of compounds called endocannabinoids. These are messengers in the body that influence appetite, mood, pain perception, energy balance, and memory. Altering some of these parameters contributes to over-eating and excessive calorie intake, which ultimately leads to a build-up of fat.
What this study found was that krill oil supplementation for eight weeks reduced levels of these endocannabinoids in mice fed a diet high in omega-6 fatty acids.
While this was only a study on mice, it does confirm exactly what was seen in a human clinical trial that was published a few months ago (click HERE to read the discussion on that study).
For me, this is good news because krill oil is one of the few supplements I take on a daily basis.
