From: A reexamination of krill oil bioavailability studies

EPA + DHA dose (mg/d) 0 300 600 900 1800
RBC EPA 0.47 ± 0.09a 0.91 ± 0.09b 1.23 ± 0.10bc 1.44 ± 0.09c 2.46 ± 0.09d
RBC DHA 3.87 ± 0.16a 5.30 ± 0.16b 5.60 ± 0.17bc 6.06 ± 0.16c 7.03 ± 0.16d
  1. Doses which produced a statistically different fatty acid content were denoted by differing superscripts (data from Flock et al. ref 12).
