More On Krill Oil...

Just as it says in my fat loss articles, one of the very first things you should do is take an Essential Fatty Acid supplement.

Why are they labeled essential? Because your body can't produce them on its own, so they must be supplied by your diet.

Unfortunately, most food is severly lacking in the Essential Fatty Acids department.

What does this mean for you?

You should be taking either a fish oil or a krill oil supplement.

A few posts back, I listed lots of reasons why krill oil is as close to a "miracle pill" as science can find.

Here are a few more reasons to supplement your diet with krill oil:

DHA has been shown to prevent the conversion of pre-adipocytes(pre-fat cells) to adipocytes (fat cells) and mediatepre-adipocyte death (kills them before they become immortal fat cells).

Krill oil has the ability to increase the clearance of chylomicrons (certain type of fat cell) and fats following a meal. This potentially can have a positive effect on substrate utilization (fat usage).

Krill oil can "artificially" decrease heart rate thus increasing the level of exertion needed to reach desired intensity. Essentially you burn more overall calories.

Krill oil up-regulates mitochondrial machinery and increases oxidation of fats within fat cells. Which means your body burns more fat as energy instead of storing it.

That's it for today!

Want more, do more, BE more,
