ALA conversion of EPA/DHA is sufficient for non-fish-eaters

Added: 20 Aug 2013 A study of vegans and vegetarians who don’t eat fish shows that their bodies contain as much EPA and DHA as regular fish-eaters.  Vegans and strict vegetarians get all their dietary omega 3 in the form of the plant-based ALA.  The study shows that the body easily converts ALA to EPA and DHA.

ALA found in flaxseed oil appears to reduce risk of cardiovascular disease

Added: 20 Aug 2013 Nine major studies (4,28-35) have reported that ALA levels are inversely correlated with primary cardiovascular events. The results are persuasive because most of these studies gathered data from large sample populations and/or over relatively long collection periods (multiple years). Flaxseed oil is one of the richest natural sources of ALA

Cardiovascular effects of flaxseed and its omega-3 fatty acid ALA

Added: 20 Aug 2013 Flaxseed oil is one of the richest sources of the plant-based omega-3 fatty acid, ALA. Results of clinical trials have shown that ingestion of ALA has a positive impact on cardiovascular disease, by lowering total cholesterol, LDL, blood pressure and other signs/causes of heart disease.

Fish oils in SA not what they seem?

Added: 20 Aug 2013 A thought-provoking study from the Cardiovascular Journal of Africa states that more than half of the omega-3 fish oil supplements on the South African market do not contain the claimed EPA and/or DHA (two types of omega-3s) contents as stated on product labels. The study also showed that 73% are in the early stages of oxidation (rancidity).

Flaxseed and borage oil supplements improve skin condition in women

Added: 20 Aug 2013 This study showed that women who ingested flaxseed (ALA & LA) or borage oil (LA & GLA) for 12 weeks showed improvements in skin properties. Skin reddening was diminished in both groups, blood flow was also lowered. Skin hydration was significantly increased after 12 weeks and water loss was decreased. Roughness and scaling of the skin were also significantly...

Flaxseed oil cuts osteoporosis risk in diabetic older women

Added: 20 Aug 2013 Flaxseed oil may reduce the risk of osteoporosis in women with diabetes and those who are post-menopausal.  New research published in the International Journal of Food Safety, Nutrition, and Public Health suggests flaxseed oil has a beneficial effect on bone mineral density and reduces markers associated with osteoporosis.

Higher Omega-3 Intake Linked to Lower Levels of Alzheimer's Biomarker

Added: 20 Aug 2013 A study published in Neurology suggests that increased dietary intake of omega-3s is associated with slower cognitive decline and lower serum levels of amyloid-beta, an early indicator of Alzheimer's disease.

Maternal omega-3 intake may influence childhood allergy

Added: 20 Aug 2013 Omega-3 fatty acids may aid the development of infant intestines and improve how intestinal immune cells respond to bacteria and foreign substances, making the baby less likely to suffer from allergies in the long term, according to research published in the Journal of Physiology.

Omega-3 fatty acids alleviate ADHD-related symptoms

Added: 20 Aug 2013 Omega-3 fatty acids are dietary essentials, and are critical to brain development and function. Increasing evidence suggests that a relative lack of omega-3 may contribute to many psychiatric and neurodevelopmental disorders, including ADHD, dyslexia, developmental coordination disorder (DCD) and autism

Omega-3 may reduce diabetes risk: 3 studies compare plant and marine sources

Added: 20 Aug 2013 Increased blood levels of omega-3 fatty acids from plant or marine sources are associated with reduced risk of type-2 diabetes, according to three new studies in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Two studies in Chinese populations and one in the USA reported that intakes or blood levels of omega-3 from plants, seafood, or both were associated with a reduced...
