Superba Krill Oil improves liver lipid metabolism in rats

Study documents the suppression of fat accumulation and prevention of weight gain in rats when krill oil was added to a high-fat diet.

Aker BioMarine announces a publication on a new study on krill oil. The study documents the suppression of fat accumulation and prevention of weight gain in rats when krill oil was added to a high-fat diet. Researchers from University of Salento, Lecce, Italy, performed the study, where they investigated the effect of feeding rats a low-fat diet or a high-fat diet with or without krill oil for 12 weeks. The study is published in the online journal PLoS One.

According to study author Lena Burri, PhD, "This study is one of several studies documenting the beneficial effects of krill oil on obesity-related disorders. This study, however, reveals further mechanisms behind the beneficial effect of krill oil and describes a beneficial regulation of enzymes involved in lipid metabolism as well as an improved mitochondrial function."

Matts Johansen, Chief Operating Officer, Aker BioMarine further says: "This publication is a result of Aker BioMarines continous commitment to documenting the health effect of Superba krill oil. This is the 10th publication describing health effects of Superba krill oil since the beginning of 2011. Aker BioMarine has lately increased its investment into clinical trials, and is looking forward to several new publications in the near future."
