SDA soybean oil effective for omega-3 blood level boost
The uptake of the oil, and conversion to EPA, was assessed using a measure called the omega-3 index. The index is a measure of blood levels of omega-3 fatty acids, and is defined as the percentage of EPA plus DHA in red blood cell membranes, relative to all other fatty acids (Cardiovascular Research, 2007, Vol. 73, pp. 310-315.). After 12 weeks of intervention, the researchers report that the index had increased to 4.69 and 4.84 percent for the SDA and EPA groups, respectively, compared with 4.15 percent for the control group. In addition, the participants did not report any adverse effects [suite...]

Adequate Amounts of Omega-3 Oil May Help Prevent Heart Disease
The most common fatty acids of each class are linolenic (18:3), EPA (20:5), DHA (22:6) for omega-3 and linoleic (18:2) and arachidonic (20:4) for omega-6. Some of the food sources of omega-3 fatty acids are fish and shellfish, flaxseed, walnuts, and canola oil." A computer software package, KIM 'Keep it Managed' can be downloaded from the NIH website (http://ods.od.nih.gov/eicosanoids) . This software evaluates the balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in your diet. A scientific discussion of physiological effects of omega-3 fatty acids can be found on the American Heart Association [suite...]

Womens Health Omega-3 Fatty Acids and Your Health
When the amounts of linoleic acid (omega-6 fatty acid) are too high, the conversion of ALA (omega-3 fatty acids) to the EPA (the biologically active form of omega-3 fatty acids), is reduced, and more of the GLA is used to make the more harmful arachondonic acid, than is used to make the more beneficial EPA. As complicated as this sounds, this is a very simplified explanation of the process. To overcome the potential negative effects of the arachidonic acid, supplementation with GLA-rich foods such as borage oil, black currant seed oil, or evening primrose oil, has become popular. However, [suite...]

What is the beneficial dose of Omega-3 Fatty Acids for an adult ...
There are three major types of omega 3 fatty acids that are ingested in foods and used by the body: alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Once eaten, the body converts ALA to EPA and DHA, the two types of omega-3 fatty acids more readily used by the body. Extensive research indicates that omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation and help prevent risk factors associated with chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and arthritis. These essential fatty acids are highly concentrated in the brain and appear to be particularly important for [suite...]

Does Taking Vegetarian Omega 3 Supplements Give You Sufficient ...
DHA and EPA are found in marine sources and in particular oily fish. ALA is an omega 3 fatty acid that is found only in plant based sources. It is not present in fish, and anyone taking fish oil supplements is not getting any ALA in their supplements. However there are many people taking various vegetarian supplements, primarily amongst them flax seed oil supplements. As flax seed oil supplements contain the plant-based form of Omega 3 fat, namely ALA, are these people therefore getting sufficient quantities of the important essential fatty acids? Unfortunately no. The reason is that DHA and [suite...]

Unilever: Omega-3 margarine study will not affect usage advice
Omega-3 spread maker Unilever says a 40 month study that found omega-3 spreads don’t protect elderly heart attack sufferers from further cardiac events, requires further analysis and won’t affect approved methods of usage. “The outcome does not question the current authoritative dietary recommendations and advices for omega 3 intakes on which our products are based,” Unilever’s Flip Dotsch told NutraIngredients.com this morning. The ALPHA-OMEGA trial saw almost 5000, 60-80 year old male and female heart attack survivors consuming varying levels of EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), DHA [suite...]
