Proven Health Benefits Of Omega-3s
A recent study done on Alaskan Husky dogs have shown that the phospholipid-bound omega-3s from krill are more effective in raising omega-3s levels in a dog's body compared to triglyceride-bound omega-3s. This result is also well supported by several human studies.Download whitepaper
A Krill-rich Diet Increased The Omega-3 Index Of
A 6-week study done recently by Aker BioMarine had the objective to compare Omega-3 Index concentrations when Omega-3s were provided in phospholipid versus triglyceride form.
20 adult Alaskan Husky dogs were involved in the study. 10 dogs were fed with 8% QRILL Pet inclusion, while 10 dogs in the control group received a diet that included omega-3 triglycerides. The amount of EPA/DHA in the diet was equal in both groups.
The results have shown that the phospholipid-bound omega-3s from krill are more effective in raising the omega-3 index in a dog’s body compared to triglyceride-bound omega-3s, such as those found in fish oil. The group receiving QRILL Pet increased their Omega-3 Index by 62%, while the fish oil control group only increased by 21%.
What is the Omega-3 Index?
The Omega-3 Index measures the amount of omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA compared to the amount of other fatty acids in cell membranes. This diagnostic tool provides a useful indication of a pet’s long-term intake of omega-3s.
A sufficient omega-3 index will be beneficial for keeping a healthy heart, brain, vision, joints, and skin.
Other benefits of a higher Omega-3 Index
The benefits of an increased Omega-3 Index were shown in an earlier study involving huskies participating in the Iditarod race, an ultra-endurance race in Alaska.  The race is known to induce muscle damage and inflammation.
The Alaskan huskies received pet food with 8% QRILL Pet inclusion for 5-week prior to the start of the 2016 Iditarod sled dog race. The control team didn’t receive any pet food with krill meal.
We found out that the dogs receiving QRILL Pet with a higher Omega-3 Index at the start of the race showed lower muscle damage and 55% less inflammation at the end of the race when compared to the other group.
