Benefits of Neptune Krill Oil
Neptune - a Canadian based company - is continuously investing in medical research aimed at demonstrating the benefits of its novel products on human health.
The results obtained during clinical research conducted by independent University researchers and healthcare professionals show that Neptune Krill Oil NKO® may provide therapeutic benefits in the following human conditions:
1. Hyperlipidemia/ Cholesterol Management
NKO® is effective in controlling hyperlipidemia by significantly reducing total cholesterol levels, LDL (bad cholesterol) and triglycerides, while increasing HDL (good cholesterol) to as yet unmatched levels.
NKO® (1 - 1.5 g/day) was shown to be safe and significantly more effective than fish oil in the management of hyperlipidemia. In the same study, NKO® was shown to achieve a significantly greater reduction of LDL levels and increase of HDL levels as compared to fish oil (3g/day).
These results were generated among statin-resistant patients, who failed to attain the target LDL levels after at least six months of low dose statin treatment.
2. Chronic Inflammation and Osteoarthritis
A Phase II clinical study on the effects of NKO® on conditions relating to chronic inflammation and osteoarthritis, published in May 2007 in the peer-reviewed medical journal - Journal of the American College of Nutrition - demonstrated that NKO® within a short treatment period can significantly reduce the C-reactive protein and osteoarthritic symptoms in patients diagnosed with a chronic inflammatory disease.
Many forms of arthritis such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are inflammatory disorders; and patients suffer from pain, stiffness, swelling and functional impairment.
Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis affecting over 20 million people in the United States. It is caused by the breakdown and eventual loss of the cartilage between the bones of the joints.
Non-surgical treatment options for osteoarthritis include analgesic and anti-inflammatory pain medications, nutritional supplementation, physical therapy, exercise, and weight loss.
3. Premenstrual Syndrome
The results of a double blind clinical study on the effects of NKO® on the management of premenstrual syndrome (PMS) published in May 2003 in a Alternative Medicine Review demonstrate that NKO® can significantly reduce both the physical and emotional symptoms associated with PMS (premenstrual syndrome), and that it is significantly more effective than fish oil (omega-3 18:12) in the management of physical and emotional dysmenorrheal symptoms.
4. Skin Cancer
Animal studies on skin cancer caused by UV radiation indicate that NKO® can prevent skin damage caused by chronic exposure to UV rays.
5. Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
The clinical results obtained during an open label pilot study demonstrated that NKO® may significantly improve cognitive function (among others concentration, planning skills and focus) of adults suffering from ADHD.
The recorded observations were indicative of the neurological advantages of using Neptune Krill Oil over a controlled period of time.
