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).

The effect of Korean pine nut oil on in vitro CCK release, on appetite sensations and on gut hormones in post-menopausal overweight women

Added: 20 Aug 2013 CCK-8 is a gut hormone that suppresses appetite, and higher concentrations of CCK-8 produce larger appetite-suppression. This study suggests Korean pine nut oil works as an appetite suppressant by increasing CCK-8 secretion. Similar effects have been found in studies of the pine nut oil product PinnoThin.

Supplementation with coconut oil promote a reduction in abdominal obesity

Added: 20 Aug 2013 Women with abdominal obesity were given a dietary supplement of either coconut or soy bean oil over a 12 week period. Women who took coconut oil presented a higher level of HDL ('good' cholesterol) and a lower LDL:HDL ratio. Reductions in body mass index were observed in both groups but only the coconut oil supplement group exhibited a reduction in waist circumference.

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 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 risk of developing diabetes.

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

Review backs flaxseed lignan's cancer fighting potential

Added: 20 Aug 2013 Flaxseed lignans might offer protection against breast, prostate, colon, and skin cancers, while the soluble fiber they contain could help maintain steady blood sugar levels. The health benefits from flaxseed lignans are due to their antioxidant activity, and also due to their estrogenic and antiestrogenic contents.

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.

Omega 3s may prevent or slow osteoarthritis

Added: 20 Aug 2013 An omega-3 rich diet from fish or flaxseed oil could "substantially and significantly" reduce the signs and symptoms of osteoarthritis, according to new research published in the Osteoarthritis and Cartilage Journal. There is also strong evidence to suggest that omega-3s could potentially help slow the progression of the disease in cases where it is already established, as well as prevent it

Plant-based Omega 3s are sufficient for human needs

Added: 20 Aug 2013 A clinical trial assessing how different omega 3 fatty acids are processed by the body “suggests that dietary ingestion of plant-derived omega 3 fatty acids is sufficient to meet the dietary needs of humans”. ALA is properly and sufficiently converted by the body into EPA and DHA.
