Krill Oil May Have Significant Benefits for Athletes

A recent study suggests that krill oil supplements may increase mTOR signaling in people who participate in resistance training. mTOR signaling is a signaling pathway that helps regulate cell metabolism, growth, proliferation, and survival.


Participants in the study included 21 healthy, resistance trained men between the ages of 18 and 30. In total, 18 participants completed the trial. Over the course of eight weeks, half of the group received 3 grams of krill oil that contained 240 mg of DHA and 393 mg of EPA daily, as well as 0.5 g of astaxanthin, while the other half took a placebo.


All the participants completed a weight training regime that included strength and endurance exercises. The researchers measured power output, lean body mass, and other markers.


At the conclusion of the study, the researchers noted a significant increase in mTOR signaling, as well as increased lean body mass from baseline, in the krill oil group.


Researchers from Applied Science and Performance Institute in Florida led the study. It was published on April 26, 2018, in the Journal of Nutrition and Metabolism.


Krill oil is rich in omega-3s, which have been linked to improved joint mobility, aiding your immune system, and helping with age-related macular degeneration. Previous studies suggest that krill oil may be superior to fish oil in raising omega-3 levels.
