Supplementation with Superba krill oil from AkerBioMarine ASA recently demonstrated beneficial effects on heart-health function in an experimental model of heart failure. Pre-treatment with krill oil attenuated left ventricular dilation and hypertrophy after myocardial infarction. The study was performed by researchers at Oslo University Hospital, Norway. Previous studies showed krill oil increases the level of EPA and DHA in heart tissue, but this is the first study to indicate beneficial effects on a hard end-point like myocardial infarction, explains the company. Superba krill is sustainably harvested in the southern Atlantic ocean near Antarctica via eco-friendly methods.
