Within omega-3 are three essential fatty acids: EPA, DHA, and ALA. These substances are called “essential” because they are absolutely necessary for the proper function of the body. And the range of tasks they perform is truly staggering: They protect against heart attacks, they lower blood pressure and cholesterol, they reduce arthritis and premenstrual pain, they improve memory and stave off depression, and they fight wrinkles and skin disorders. They are found in plant foods, such as seeds and nuts, and in cold water fish, such as salmon, but new research shows that there is a more potent and absorbable source of omega-3 that may offer greater protection. Written by best-selling author Dennis Goodman, MD, The Thrill of Krill is the first book to provide a clear understanding of why krill oil is a must for everyone interested in restoring and maintaining optimum health. Krill are tiny shrimp-like creatures found in the ocean. To a great extent, they make up the diet of most sea life, from whales and seals to squids and fish. Krill oil is to marine life what fish oil is to human life—except that krill oil is far superior to fish oil. Studies show that while fish oil is slow to be absorbed by the human body, krill oil is quickly absorbed into the bloodstream. In The Thrill of Krill, Dr. Goodman explores the latest research on krill, details the individual health benefits krill oil provides, and explains the differences between available krill oils. Also included is a resource section that will enable you to learn more about krill. With so many nutritional supplements on store shelves, it’s hard to know which one can make a real difference to your health. Backed by scientific research, The Thrill of Krill introduces an exciting and amazingly powerful source of omega-3s that can change your life for the better.
