Krill oil and the Pope in the Vatican.

Krill oil is a panacea and even the Pope in the Vatican consumes it.


By medical indication in Rome, Pope Francis, ingests 3 tablets of concentrated krill oil, the Antarctic marine crustacean source of Omega 3.


It has been 36 years since Dr. Grillo arrived in Antarctica to study the penguins’ diet and the properties of krill that, because they have phospholipids, are of better quality than fish oil.

Today, Dr. Grillo, at 78 years of age, remains hyperactive and very excited by the Pope’s invitation to the Vatican.

Dr. Grillo sought to discover something for the treatment of arteriosclerosis. And he was able to verify the good conditions of the arteries of the penguins that fed on Krill, crustacean so abundant that only in the Antarctic is estimated a biomass of 420 million tons; the krill very abundant in the planet, being able to have a school up to 2 million tons.


The highest quality krill is in the Antarctic. They even sell chicken eggs, enriched with Omega 3 fatty acids.

Omega 3 reduces the risk of cardiovascular diseases, prevents nerve diseases, improves inflammation, promotes blood circulation, reduces triglycerides and improves the relationship between bad and good cholesterol

Krill oil decreases the wear and tear of our joints, increases the visual and skin health, among other benefits.

The omega 3 of the krill and the fish.

The advantage of krill is that it is not repeated after consuming it and it does not leave an unpleasant taste as it does with fish oil.

A randomized 12-week clinical trial showed:


A dose of 1 gram of krill per day resulted in a drop in total cholesterol (13%), bad cholesterol (32%) and triglycerides (11%).

Good cholesterol increased by 44%.

Consuming 500 mg a day of krill for 12 kept the cholesterol and triglyceride values ​​within a healthy range.

The krill oil exceeded that of fish oil. Several studies suggest that Omega 3 fatty acids contribute favorably to maintaining bone health.

Krill oil significantly reduces hepatomegaly (enlarged liver) and hepatosteatosis (fatty liver).


In 2013, Dr. Grillo won the National Award for Citizen Excellence and Citizen of Gold, awarded by the Celade.

Before, of the previous prize, he won the National Medicine Grand Prize twice and the Prince of Asturias.
