Krill, the most abundant species on the planet (by weight) may also be the healthiest for humans to consume. These tiny crustaceans lie at the bottom of the food chain and the ocean, but recent research shows that they just might be the top source of omega-3s, the healthy fats we don’t get enough of.
Omega-3s provide numerous benefits, including supporting brain function, heart health and insulin regulation. They also fight many forms of cancer and aid muscle growth and fat loss. Krill are a superior source of omega-3s for a couple reasons: 1) They contain less contamination than other fish sources, and 2) their supplemental oil is more readily digested than other forms because it suspends in fluids instead of floating on top like most sources of healthy fats.
Try taking up to 1 gram of krill oil with each of your whole-food meals.
