Background:Omega-3 fatty acids (n − 3 FA) may have blood pressure (BP)-lowering effects in untreated hypertensive and elderly patients. The effect of n − 3 FA on BP in young, healthy adults remains unknown. The Omega-3 Index reliably reflects an individuals’ omega-3 status. We hypothesized that the

The omega-3 index, the percentage of EPA plus DHA in erythrocytes (measured by standardised analysis), represents a human body's status in EPA and DHA. An omega-3 index is measured in many laboratories around the world; however, even small differences in analytical methods entail large differences in results. Nevertheless, results are frequently related to the target range of 8-11 %, defined for the original and scientifically validated method (HS-Omega-3 Index(R)), raising ethical issues, and c...

Circulating saturated fatty acids (SFAs) have been associated with cardiovascular disease. However, little is known about the relationship of SFAs with the risk of pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH). We conducted a nested case–control study to examine the associations between circulating SFAs and the risk of PIH. A total of 92 PIH cases were matched to 184 controls by age (±2 years) and infant sex from a birth cohort study conducted in Wuhan, China. Levels of circulating fatty acids in plasma ...

Hintergrund Uber die Wirkungen von Omega-3-Fettsauren herrscht Verwirrung. Wissenschaftliche Untersuchungen brachten scheinbar keine Klarheit. Leitlinien und Regulierungsbehorden widersprechen einander.

Abstract Background The Omega-3 Index (O3I; erythrocyte EPA+DHA as a percent of total fatty acids) is inversely related to risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD). The cardioprotective target O3I is 8%–12%. O3I levels in American regions with high CVD risk are poorly characterized. Purpose To determine the O3I in individuals participating in a Seafood Nutrition Partnership (SNP) survey in seven US cities in the CVD “belt.” Methods Fingerstick blood samples were analyzed for the O3I. Results The SN...

Abstract Background : The etiology of degenerative rotator cuff tears is multifactorial but chronic inflammation plays an important role in the pathogenesis. Some polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) can modulate inflammation and marine n-3 (Omega-3) PUFA have anti-inflammatory effects. We hypothesized that the Omega-3 Index is lower in patients with degenerative rotator cuff tears when compared to controls without rotator cuff tendinopathy. Methods : From 684 consecutive patients with full thickn...

Summary Epidemiology studies and clinical trials have shown that omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFAs) are inversely associated with blood pressure. We sought to determine the influence of cigarette smoking and Hispanic ethnicity on this association. Age- and sex-matched smokers and nonsmokers (n = 98) 19–50 years old lacking cardiovascular disease were recruited. Systolic and diastolic blood pressure (SBP, DBP), heart rate, HbA1c, lipids, BMI, and RBC fatty acids were measured. The om...

This pilot randomised controlled study evaluated the effects of a nutrient-supported intermittent energy restriction nutrition programme to prevent weight gain in healthy overweight adults during the 6-week winter holiday period between Thanksgiving and New Year. For 52 d, twenty-two overweight adults (mean age 41·0 years, BMI 27·3 kg/m 2 ) were assigned to either the nutrition programme ( n 10; two fasting days of 730 kcal/d (3050 kJ/d) of balanced shake and dietary supplements to support weigh...

In this study, we wanted to extend our investigation of the efficacy of fish oil with or without salsalate on vascular and neural complications using a type 2 diabetic rat model. Four weeks after the onset of hyperglycemia, diabetic rats were treated via the diet with 3 different amounts of menhaden oil with or without salsalate for 12 weeks. Afterwards, vascular reactivity of epineurial arterioles and neuropathy-related endpoints were examined. The addition of salsalate to high-fat diets enrich...
