Many health-promoting benefits have been associated with the intake of the omega-3 fatty acids, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). As a dietary supplement, SuperbaTM krill oil provides theseimportant fatty acids to a large part in the form of phospholipids. Due to the special combination of omega-3 phospholipidsand the antioxidant astaxanthin, krill oil has been alleviated with numerous positive health effects. The intention of this article is to provide information on the influence of the structural form of omega-3 fatty acids (phospholipids from krill oilversus triglycerides from fish oil) on blood plasma levels of EPA and DHA. Two human clinical studies suggest that omega-3sprovided in phospholipid form accumulate in higher amounts in plasma than when taken up in triglyceride form.
