Did your doc explain why krill oil preferred to fish oil?I use cinnamon in my coffee every morning, heaped 1/2 tspn because I like the taste. I take a turmeric supplement, garlic supplement, and use the spices you mention. I use 1-2 TBS apple cider vinegar with a couple of TBS olive and flaxseed oil as salad dressing. I don't know if they help or not, but I take them because they are supposed to. My cardiologist had me switch from fish oil to krill oil, both are supposed to help raise HDL.
