Association between Obesity and Omega-3 Status in Healthy Young Women

Association between Obesity and Omega-3 Status in Healthy Young Women

2020-10-01

Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFAs) are essential for healthy development and protect against metabolic disease. However, individuals with obesity may be pre-disposed to experiencing lower n-3 PUFA status than normal-weight individuals.

Omega-3 Fatty Acid Supplementation Linked to Reduced Inflammation and Flaring in Lupus

Omega-3 Fatty Acid Supplementation Linked to Reduced Inflammation and Flaring in Lupus

2020-09-04

Preclinical and clinical studies reveal that consumption of the marine ω-3 highly unsaturated fatty acids (HUFAs) eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) might be used as a precision nutrition intervention to lessen lupus symptoms. 
Higher levels of omega-3s are associated with lower risk of suboptimal sleep

Higher levels of omega-3s are associated with lower risk of suboptimal sleep

2020-08-04

Research: participant ages ranged from 35 to 96 years from 5 countries (Finland, Iceland, Sweden, Singapore, and the United States) with higher circulating omega-3 FAs had a lower risk of suboptimal sleep.

Potential benefits of omega-3 supplementation to patients with COVID-19

Potential benefits of omega-3 supplementation to patients with COVID-19

Omega-3 dietary supplements could possibly improve the COVID-19 patient's recovery. Omega-3 fatty acids, specifically eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), present an anti-inflammatory effect that could ameliorate some patients need for intensive care unit (ICU) admission
Long-chain omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids and healthy ageing

Long-chain omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids and healthy ageing

2020-06-26

A study published in the British Medical Journal found an association between higher blood levels of the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids EPA, DPA, and DHA and “healthy aging.” The authors concluded their findings support guidelines for increased dietary consumption of long-chain omega-3s in older adults.
Omega-3 significantly improved depressive symptoms in perinatal women regardless of pregnant or postpartum

Omega-3 significantly improved depressive symptoms in perinatal women regardless of pregnant or postpartum

2020-06-19

Omega-3 FA significantly improved depressive symptoms in perinatal women regardless of pregnant or postpartum and well-tolerated. Furthermore, the omega-3 response was linked to higher EPA proportion in omega-3 formula and mild- to-moderate depression.
Study: more omega-3, fewer respiratory events

Study: more omega-3, fewer respiratory events

2020-06-12

Omega-3 (DHA+EPA+DPA) possess properties that may be protective in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Using the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA), researchers hypothesized that higher plasma levels of n-3 PUFAs would be associated with a slower progression of percent emphysema on CT, a slower decline in lung function, and a lower risk of chronic lower respiratory disease (CLRD) events. 

A low total Omega‐3 PUFA status in early pregnancy was associated with a higher risk of early preterm birth

A low total Omega‐3 PUFA status in early pregnancy was associated with a higher risk of early preterm birth

2020-06-04

A low total omega‐3 PUFA status in early pregnancy was associated with a higher risk of early preterm birth. Among women with a total omega‐3 status ≤4.1% of total fatty acids, omega‐3 supplementation substantially reduced the risk of early preterm birth.

Maternal Dietary Intake of Omega-3 Fatty Acids Correlates Positively with Regional Brain Volumes in 1-Month-Old Term Infants

Maternal Dietary Intake of Omega-3 Fatty Acids Correlates Positively with Regional Brain Volumes in 1-Month-Old Term Infants

2020-05-29

Scholars at Harvard Medical School and Boston Children’s Hospital have suggested that maternal dietary intake of Omega-3 fatty acids correlates positively with regional brain volumes in 1-month-old term infants.Omega-3 fatty acids remained significantly correlated with infant brain volumes after subsetting to the 54 infants who were exclusively breastfed, but retinol and vitamin B12 did not.
