Krill as Food for Large Whales in the Southern Ocean

Krill, small crustaceans that live in the sea, play a crucial role in the Arctic Ocean ecosystem. These tiny creatures are an important food source for large cetaceans, including blue whales, humpback whales and fin whales. Let's explore why a combination of fish oil with Omega-3 and krill oil can be beneficial to the health of both whales and humans.

When comparing our concentrated Omega-3 with Antarctic Krill Oil to the separate unblended oils, here are some important points to consider:

Concentrated Omega-3 with Arctic Krill Oil:

  • Synergistic benefits: The combination of Omega-3 from fish and krill oil in our product provides a synergistic effect that enhances the overall benefits. The blended oil provides a balanced ratio of EPA to DHA, which is optimized for superior health benefits. 
  • Improved absorption: The phospholipid form of Omega-3 in krill oil, combined with the triglyceride form in fish oil, can improve the bioavailability of these fatty acids. 
  • Antioxidant power: Our blended oil includes Astaxanthin from krill oil, which is a powerful antioxidant that can help reduce oxidative stress and inflammation.

Documented health effects:

  • Heart health: Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. They lower blood pressure, reduce inflammation and improve the cholesterol profile.

  • Joint health: Omega-3 fatty acids can relieve joint pain and stiffness, especially in people with arthritis.

  • Brain function: DHA is an important building block for the brain, and it is linked to better cognitive function and a reduced risk of dementia.

Assumed health effects:

  • Anti-inflammatory effect: Both Omega-3 and astaxanthin in krill oil have the potential to reduce inflammation in the body.

  • Improved skin health: Astaxanthin is known to protect the skin against damage from sunlight and aging.

Conclusion:

A combination of fish oil with Omega-3 and krill oil provides a highly concentrated source of essential fatty acids and antioxidants. For whales and humans alike, this mixture can provide health benefits that support heart, brain and overall well-being. 

  1. FDA: The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved a qualified health claim which states that intake of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) omega-3 fatty acids in food or supplements may reduce the risk of hypertension and coronary heart disease. Although this claim does not meet the requirements for an authorized health claim, it meets the standard for a qualified health claim in the labeling of conventional foods and dietary supplements11.

  2. EFSA: The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has concluded that a daily supplement of 5 g of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids does not cause concern for adults. These fatty acids contribute to normal heart function and the maintenance of normal blood pressure23.
