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. 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
Almost 95% of NCAA Division I athletes fail to achieve the recommendation to consume 500 mg DHA+EPA per day, says a new study that highlights the opportunities to boost Omega-3 intakes among this population for heart and brain health.
Omega-3 PUFA, received a positive recommendation in the Australian heart failure guidelines whereas all other nutraceuticals are inadequately studied to allow any conclusion on efficacy.
