I am a big proponent of omega-3 fatty acids as found in fish, fish oils, and krill oil. A recent review of numerous controlled trials completed in the past few years indicates that supplementation reduces low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL cholesterol, the bad type) and triglycerides. It may be a good idea for anyone who has had a problem with high cholesterol or triglyceride levels to include 2 to 4 krill oil pills a day in their supplementation.
