There is not enough research to show that Artic Ruby Oil actually works as a weight loss supplement, notes NaturallySavvy.com. Evidence shows that the oil contains ingredients such as EPA, DHA and antioxidants that could benefit obese people, but proof of this is lacking, reports the National Institutes of Health.
Artic Ruby Oil is made from a shrimp-like create called the Calanus finmarchicus, notes NaturallySavvy.com. The oil from this product differs from traditional fish and krill oils, which is why it is claimed to be more effective. Unlike fish and krill oils, EPA and DHA in from the Calanus finmarchicus attach themselves to phospholipids, which allows the oil to burn at a slower rate within the body. A study reported by the British Journal of Nutrition did show Calanus oil to be both beneficial and preventive in weight loss concerns, but the reasons for these results was unclear, explains NaturallySavvy.com.
