On December 4, 2013 I received my first shipment of Arctic Ruby Oil and began taking two capsules a day. That day I felt more energy than I had in a very long time. I’ve been taking two capsules everyday since and I have had the same wonderful energy every day.
Over the past (almost) four weeks I’ve also lost five pounds and an inch from around my waist and an inch from around my belly (2 inches below my waist). This is after being on my Fast Diet since March 5th and not losing any more weight since June.
The story of Arctic Ruby Oil begins at the end of 2007 in the frigid waters off the coast of Norway, which is the home of a tiny sea creature called Calanus finmarchicus. This shrimp-like creature is the main food of wild salmon and also the sole food of the arctic auk, a small bird that can fly tremendous distances.
Biology professor Kurt S. Tande, who also owns a fishery, had begun to extract oil from the shrimp-like creature and asked a colleague, biologist Dr. Jan Raa, to analyze and test the oil. Tande was curious about the ruby colored oil because he and some colleagues had begun using the oil instead of fish oil supplements and had experienced an unexpected increase in energy and loss of belly fat.
A recent study (June 2013) that appeared in the British Journal of Nutrition reported on the use of the oil in obese mice. One group of mice were fed a high-fat diet, which caused these animals to gain weight and abdominal fat and have impaired glucose tolerance when compared with mice who were fed a normal diet. Then, when the obese mice were given Arctic Ruby Oil, they showed a reduction in body weight gain and abdominal fat as well as an improvement in glucose tolerance.
Although the authors were not able to identify which components of the oil were responsible for these benefits, they believe they are related to EPA, DHA, and/or the antioxidants in the oil. In another study (2012), the supplementation of Arctic Ruby Oil reduced the formation of atherosclerotic lesions in mice, which led the authors to conclude that the oil “may be an effective and safe dietary intervention to reduce the development of atherosclerosis” (hardening of the arteries).
Dr. Raa discovered that ruby oil has a structure that is different from that of both fish oil and krill oil. The essential fatty acids (eicosapentaenoic acid [EPA] and docosahexaenoic acid [DHA]) in fish oil, for example, are bound to triglycerides, while those found in krill oil are attached to phospholipids. This distinction between fish oil and krill oil seems to make a difference in how the oils work in the body.
In Arctic Ruby Oil, the essential fatty acids (EFAs) are bound to monoesters. According to Dr. Raa, monoesters burn at a much slower rate than do phospholipids and triglycerides. That means they are used by the body further along in the digestive process; that is, in the posterior portion of the intestinal tract where receptors associated with glucose tolerance, oxygen use, and fat distribution are located.
