Research says that omega 3 fatty acids and related compounds found in krill oil lessen joint and muscle pain, significantly reduce chronic inflammation, and slow the development of osteoporosis.
Obesity, diet, and lack of physical exercise are the three risk factors which significantly contribute to the development of chronic inflammation, which can cause muscle pain, joint inflammation, and joint pain.
A high quality krill oil supplement that contains EPA and DHA has been shown to reduce the effects of chronic inflammation, slow the progress of osteoarthritis and increase the flow of blood to joints and muscles to reduce the frequency of muscle and joint stiffness.
It appears that a healthy diet with quality krill oil ensures the recommended minimum of 2 grams of omega-3 associated with reported health benefits.
It is recommended that people supplement with a minimum of 2,000 mg of DHA/EPA per day; preferably from a quality krill oil source.
