Plasma Phospholipid Long-Chain ω-3 Fatty Acids and Total and Cause-Specific Mortality in Older Adults: A Cohort Study
Background: Long-chain ω-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (ω3-PUFAs), including eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) (20:5ω-3), docosapentaenoic acid (DPA) (22:5ω-3), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) (22:6ω-3), have been shown to reduce cardiovascular risk, but effects on cause-specific and total mortality and potential dose-responses remain controversial. Most observational studies have assessed self-reported dietary intake and most randomised trials have tested effects of adding supplements to dietary intake and evaluated secondary prevention, thus limiting inference for dietary ω3-PUFAs or primary prevention.
There is an endemic nutritional deficiency likely to be affecting a large proportion of your patients, as well as the next generation of Australian children. Reducing IQs, sapping vitality, expanding waistlines and impeding reproductive health... Can all this be influenced by one nutrient?
A supplement containing a combination of lutein, zeaxanthin, and ω-3 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids significantly benefits patients with age-related macular degeneration, according to a study published online March 21 in JAMA Ophthalmology.
ADHD is associated with a ‘Western’ Dietary Pattern in Adolescents- Omega 3’s may provide protection
Researchers from Perth's Telethon Institute for Child Health Research found that a diet high in the Western pattern of foods was associated with more than double the risk of having an ADHD diagnosis compared with a diet low in the Western pattern, after adjusting for numerous other social and family influences.
The study was published in the International Journal of Attention Disorders.
A review of literature published last year in the journal Nutrients confirms the scope of evidence supporting DHA's critical role in the evolution and maintenance of human physiology. From the late Paleolithic period, consumption of DHA-rich foods (i.e. seafood) began to correspond with brain development, which surged in the last 200,000 years. Modern science has delved deeply into this relationship, noting the technological and lifestyle changes that have contributed to radical alterations of dietary essential fatty acid ratios, and quite possibly certain negative health effects from inadequate DHA.
Have you ever thought that perhaps you may have a food allergy? Perchance you thought, "I've eaten these foods before, sometimes every day, and I've never had a problem. Why should I consider being tested for food allergies?"
Nutrigenomics Study Shows Dietary Anti-inflammatories Also Decrease Oxidation and Metabolic Stress in Overweight Men
Nutrigenomicsis the study of the relationships between dietary factors and individual genes. New nutrigenomic research was reported from the Netherlands in which a combination product of fish oil, green tea extract, resveratrol, vitamins C and E, and a tomato juice extract produced changes to genes associated with inflammation, blood vessel health, and oxidation of fat in the liver, according to findings published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
Musculoskeletal symptoms and orthopaedic conditions are a common cause of concern for many patients. Concentrated fish oil, providing the omega-3s EPA and DHA, is emerging as a cost effective tool with a favourable safety profile for optimising outcome from traditional treatment strategies. Scientific and clinical evidence shows that EPA and DHA may address all three of the major components of pain and injury: inflammatory response, cellular/tissue structural integrity, and nervous system signalling.
Fish oil, when combined with chemotherapy for non-small cell lung cancer, significantly enhanced the efficacy of the chemotherapy and improved response rate when compared to those simply receiving the standard therapy, according to research published in ‘Cancer 2011'.
