Do Krill hold the secret to anti-ageing?

New research is suggesting that krill fish powder may have anti-ageing properties, as reported in The Journal of Functional Food.

Scientists used mice in the 12-week study where a krill powder - which contains a mix of oil and protein from Antarctic krill - modified the pathways of several metabolic processes.

If confirmed and the study extended, the Krill properties could help to prevent aged related declines in weight and energy by altering the specific metabolic pathways.

The team went on to suggest that dietary supplements with the krill formulation could have the potential to prevent age-related declines in weight and energy due to the preservation of amino acids, combined with upping energy production.

Dr Bodil Bjorndal from the University of Bergen told the JFF: “The findings of this study support further investigation into whether a lipid and protein combination product can have benefits over omega-3 supplementation alone; in particular if a Krill powder versus a krill oil diet has an added effect.”
