Suppression of the Autoimmune Disease Lupus: Krill Oil Shows Positive Benefits.

Suppression of the Autoimmune Disease Lupus:  Krill Oil Shows Positive Benefits.


What is Lupus:

Lupus foundation of America states that “lupus is a chronic inflammatory disease that can affect various parts of the body, especially the skin, joints, blood, and kidneys.”

Currently there are 4 different types of lupus each representing a particular type of autoimmune disease and can be recognized by different characteristics.  Lupus usually develops between the ages of 15-35, and surprisingly more than 90% of those who have lupus are women.

There are several similarities between lupus and other autoimmune diseases.  One of the most important and widely recognized is that the immune system misinterprets the components of the body as foreign bacteria or viruses and works aggressively to attack and eliminate them.   The body begins to develop antibodies against itself, and immune cells expel toxic materials causing annihilation of the body’s organs and tissues.

In this case lupus causes chronic inflammation of the skin, blood vessels, joints, kidneys, and other tissues.  This chronic inflammation causes those with lupus to have a difficult life quality due to periodic flare-ups followed by periods of remission.  The severity of lupus can range from mild to life threatening.  There is currently no cure and medical treatment involves lowering the immune system to prevent lupus from attacking the body.


Benefits of Krill Oil potential to suppress Lupus:

In 1994 Lipids recorded a research on hybrid New Zealand female mice fed a diet rich in omega-3 fish oils versus omega-6 corn oil.  The research showed delayed development of autoimmune lupus nephritis and longer life span.  A current study was also done to explore the possible positive effects of krill oil as a beneficial source of omega-3 lipids.

The research learned from the study indicated that dietary intake of Krill Oil controls expression of TGFbeta in an organ specific manner.  In the spleen, TGFbeta could be immunosuppressive, whereas its appearance in the kidney may be pathological and pro-inflammatory.  In conclusion dietary krill oil, like fish oil can suppress the development of autoimmune murine lupus, and its effects on inflammatory moderators are organ specific.  The largest benefit that was understood was that krill oil, unlike fish oil works directly and rapidly with the body’s cells.  This proves very beneficial when dealing with onset lupus or any autoimmune disease.
