Lipikrill is a patented formulation designed to support normal blood lipid metabolism, support antioxidant mechanisms, and promote a healthy cytokine balance in the body. Lipikrill provides EPA and DHA from Antarctic Krill in concentrated, bioavailable, phospholipid forms that were found to have a greater impact on blood lipid metabolism and provide an increase in omega-3 scores more profoundly and more quickly than fish oil. Lipikrill contains the carotenoid, astaxanthin, which provides antioxidant support and has a characteristic red color.
The multi-center, 90-day, prospective, randomized, doubleblind, placebo and activecontrolled trial was conducted in 120 patients with mild to moderate hyperlipidemia, comparing placebo to 1 to 3g/day krill oil versus fish oil 3g/day.
Blood glucose levels were reduced by 6.3 percent, from 105 mg/dL to 98 mg/dL (p=0.025), in patients receiving 1 g and 1.5 g krill oil daily.

Why take Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Research suggests that serum EPA and DHA, which reﬂect dietary intake, are inversely associated with mortality, cardiovascular risk, and sudden cardiac death.
LipiKrill provides EPA and DHA in a concentrated, bioavailable, phospholipid form found to positively affect blood lipids, including triglycerides, to a greater extent than the triglyceride or ethyl-ester form of ﬁsh oil does.
What are Phospholipids
Considered the building blocks of healthy cells, phospholipids are water- and fat-soluble and help maintain cell membrane ﬂuidity and function. The phospholipid form (versus triglyceride form) of omega-3 EPA and DHA is easily recognized, integrated, and utilized by the body’s cells.
Phosphatidylcholine (PC)—the major phospholipid found in LipiKrill—is highly concentrated in the brain, heart, liver, and kidneys
What is Antarctic Krill
Krill, a coldwater marine crustacean, is a rich source of omega-3 EPA and DHA. Krill oil has been used in several human clinical trials, and research consistently suggests that krill omega-3 phospholipids support antioxidant activity, healthy cell membranes, healthy blood lipids, and the normal response to inﬂammation.
What is Astaxanthin?
Both animal and clinical research suggest that astaxanthin supports antioxidant mechanisms as well as a healthy response to inﬂammation.
FDA NEWS RELEASE
- For Immediate Release: Feb. 28, firstname.lastname@example.org
- FDA announces safety changes in labeling for some cholesterol-lowering drugs including:
- Certain cognitive (brain-related) effects have been reported with statin use. Statin labels will now include information about some patients experiencing memory loss and confusion.
- Increases in blood sugar levels (hyperglycemia) have been reported with statin use. (Including elevations of HbA1c)
- Some medicines may interact with lovastatin, increasing the risk for muscle injury (myopathy/rhabdomyolysis)
