(Reuters Health) - Omega-3 fatty acids in fish and dietary supplements are associated with lower odds of heart disease even in people already at elevated risk because of excessive levels of fats or bad cholesterol in their blood, a research review suggests.
Taking certain omega-3 fatty acid supplements during pregnancy can reduce the risk of childhood asthma by almost one third, according to a new study.
(University of Waterloo) Taking certain omega-3 fatty acid supplements during pregnancy can reduce the risk of childhood asthma by almost one third, according to a new study from the Copenhagen Prospective Studies on Asthma in Childhood and the University of Waterloo.
Omega-3 fatty acids are able to stimulate the activation of brown and beige adipose tissues, a discovery that would promote the development of new therapies for obesity and other metabolism diseases, according to a research study.
Healthy young people may be able to help prevent the onset of high blood pressure by eating diets rich in omega-3 fatty acids, according to a preliminary study.
Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are found in fish oil, could improve the function of the glymphatic system, which facilitates the clearance of waste from the brain, and promote the clearance of metabolites including amyloid-? peptides, a primary culprit in Alzheimer's disease, report scientists.
(Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology) New research published online in The FASEB Journal suggests that omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (found in fish oil), could improve the function of the glymphatic system,...Show More Summary
Researchers suggest that the deviation from the evolutionary balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids is responsible for the rise in global obesity.
CLAIM: Omega-3 Fatty Acids Can Eliminate What Triggers Lupus. Hmm.
In mice susceptible to lupus, the omega-3 fatty acid DHA was found to prevent the lung-damaging effects that may arise with exposure to crystalline silica.
Eutrophication and brownification change phytoplankton community structure and decrease the production of essential omega-3 fatty acids in lakes. Perch growing in oligotrophic clear-water lakes contain 1.5-1.9 times more essential omega-3 fatty acids than those grown in eutrophic and brown-water lakes.
Consuming an omega-3 fatty acid called DHA, or docosahexaenoic acid, can stop a known trigger of lupus and potentially other autoimmune disorders, researchers have discovered.
A team of Michigan State University researchers has found that consuming an omega-3 fatty acid called DHA, or docosahexaenoic acid, can stop a known trigger of lupus and potentially other autoimmune disorders.
Taking a fatty acid supplement improved reading skills of schoolchildren in Sweden. Results were particularly relevant for kids with attention problems.
Supplement of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids may improve reading skills of mainstream schoolchildren, according to a new study. Children with attention problems, in particular, may be helped in their reading with the addition of these fatty acids.
Researchers have found that omega-3 fatty acids reduced brain damage in a neonatal mouse model of stroke.
Researchers from Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) found that omega-3 fatty acids reduced brain damage in a neonatal mouse model of stroke.
In middle-aged and older individuals with type 2 diabetes, intake of at least 500 mg/d of dietary long-chain ?-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, easily achievable with two weekly servings of oily fish, was associated with a decreased risk of sight-threatening diabetic retinopathy, according to a study.
Post by The Stir Bloggers. We’ve all heard of omega-3s, but what are these essential fats and how do our kids benefit from them? Omega-3 essential fatty acids are nutritional cornerstones of human health. They’re called “essential” because we all need them for proper health – kind of like vitamins and minerals – but we can’t produce them on our own. Show More Summary
Taking a high dose of omega-3 fatty acids every day may reduce heart muscle scarring and improve heart function following a heart attack, say researchers.
