We’re going to start out with the most common reason people are starting to supplement with krill oil - to clear up joint inflammation. Whether you have pain in your neck, back, knees, elbows, or ankles, this may be the solution you’ve been waiting for.
Sure, these are two ailments that good old, tried and true fish oil might be able to help with. But with the evidence suggesting you can accomplish more with less by using krill oil, why would you not give krill oil a shot? While most of the anti-inflammatory action of krill oil is caused by the DHA & EPA, there are other substances that lend a helping hand, too. There is also a pink/orange pigment found in krill oil known as astaxanthin.
This compound has anti-inflammatory benefits of it’s own, further enhancing any benefits the DHA & EPA provides. It also has been shown to have antioxidant effects, which will help neutralize free radicals throughout your body.
