We put our Omega-3 to the test

Krill Oil Banner FutureYou

We know that our KRILL OIL is a highly concentrated omega 3 supplement. But what about the things our customers really want to know; how much of it is actually absorbed into the body? How quickly does it work? And what results could we expect to see in eight weeks.

Armed with some harsh critics (the FutureYou team), some blood test kits and an eight week supply of FutureYou KRILL OIL, we put our product to the test.

The Test

The aim of the test was to see what increases in omega 3 could be seen in the blood test results after an eight week period. Each participant would take a blood sample on day one which would be sent to a lab for analysis, documenting the level of omega 3 in each of the participants' blood.  Then, after taking an eight week course of KRILL OIL, the blood tests would be repeated and analysed to see if there was any detectable increase in omega 3.

The Guinea Pigs

We assembled a trusty squad of FutureYou employees to conduct the trial. None of the participants where already taking any omega 3 supplements. Here's what how they described their diets and what they scored in their first omega 3 tests.

Starting FINAL

The results where quite a surprise to most of the team.

Chris said "Oh wow. I'm shocked. I do all of the right things and eat a really healthy varied diet. I know that most people struggle to get enough omega 3 in their diet but I wouldn't have ever put myself in that category - I thought I'd have had a much higher score. The optimal range for omega 3 in the blood is upwards of 8% and I am a long way off."

Louisa said "Being pescatarian is obviously paying off because I had some of the highest results on the team but it's still a surprise to learn that I am a good way off of the optimal amount. I can't wait to see the results at the end of eight weeks now".

The results

So, how did they fair? Well every single person on the trial saw an improvement in their omega 3 levels. In fact, there was a mean average improvement in omega 3 within the team of 33.2%.

Starting FINAL

Our conclusion

Our small study proved a couple of things.

Firstly, just how difficult it is to get enough omega 3 into your diet. For the very health conscious foodies taking the test, the results showing an insufficient amount of omega 3 in the blood were a bit of a shock. It just goes to show, even if you are doing all the right things, sometimes we all need a little boost. Our study also showed that taking a high quality supplement is an excellent way to give your omega 3 levels a boost. It is, as with all supplements, important that supplementation is sustained to ensure the continued benefits of the product. Supplements should be incorporated on top of a nutritious diet and healthy lifestyle.

If you'd like more information about omega 3, the NHS Choice website lists the importance and benefits of omega 3 on it's website and weighs up the scientific support behind claims that omega 3 has a positive contribution towards Cardiovascular Disease, Vision, Rheumatoid Arthritis and other diseases.

As for the FutureYou team who took the trial in the office, most are choosing to continue on the trial for another two months to see if they can get their Omega 3 levels into the optimal range.

      Hi Vera. Omega 3 levels take a while to build up. We were pretty happy with a 30% increase in just 8 weeks. We have some people in the office continuing for longer to see how far the improvement moves after another 8 weeks. We will keep you updated.

    To find a company testing its own staff to get authentic results is certainly novel and very interesting. It also inspires confidence in the Company.

    I already take fish oil and am wondering is there a maximum amount which you should not go above .How high is too high?
    Also where can you get tested for the amount in your blood, my doctor is not interested in doing this as I am not 'ill'

    Thank you

      Hi Patricia,

      Thank you for your comment.

      It is not recommended that you exceed 3g of fish oils per day from supplements.

      If you would like to find out the level of omega 3 in your blood you can purchase a test from this website for €68 (approximately £60) - https://omegametrix.eu/selbsttest.html.

      Best wishes,


    how do these results compare with 11mg pure fish oil a day

    how do these results compare with 1100mg pure fish oil daily

      Dear Janice,

      Thank you for your comment.

      In order to make a comparison we would need to know the source and composition of the pure fish oil in order to make any sort of comparison.

      Please pop us through some more information here or via email to hello@camnutra.com so we can go about working it out for you.

      Best wishes,
