One such case is omega-7, a non-essential fatty acid found in certain fish and some plants, which is now getting attention, thanks to efforts to understand and develop the “science behind the ingredient.” The effort to further study this fatty acid is led by Dr. Tina Sampalis, who had previously developed krill oil as a dietary ingredient. It was during this time that she became familiar with the benefits of omega-7, and after further research, she found it to be the real thing.

In conducting the study, a team of researchers at Michigan Technological University worked with 67 adult participants. At the start of the study, the research team conducted a battery of tests on the participants to assess their cardiovascular function, such as heart rate, blood pressure, muscle sympathetic nerve activity (MSNA), and blood flow through the forearm and calf. These tests were conducted first when the participants were at rest. The same tests were performed again when the participants were accomplishing a mental arithmetic test, while the … [Read more...] about How exactly does fish oil help the heart?

The researchers of the study used data from the 2,500 participants from the Offspring cohort of the Framingham Heart Study. The participants of the study had an average age of 66 years and were all free of cardiovascular disease at the beginning of a … [Read more...] about Heart study finds that omega-3 intake cuts your overall risk of death by a THIRD

Brody March 26, 2018 About 15 years ago, when my cholesterol level began an inexplicable climb, I tried a slew of suggested dietary remedies that included eating more fish, along with a daily supplement of fish oil, which research at the time suggested would help prevent heart attacks and strokes. Alas, my body disdained my efforts and I finally had to take a statin. But I continued to follow a heart-healthy diet laden with vegetables and fish and took 1,200 milligrams of fish oil every night. I now suspect that those thousands of gel-covered capsules I’ve swallowed over the years may have done little more than enrich the pockets of supplement producers and sellers. A number of extensive analyses have been conducted, some supporting and others refuting the value of fish oils to the … [Read more...] about Is It Time to Give Up on Fish Oil?

The diet is thought to play a major role in the prevention and treatment of all forms of depression.
