Even if you haven’t had to deal with the heartbreak of dementia in your family yet, you’ve probably heard just how likely it is that you or someone you love will eventually be hit by it. It’s no surprise, then, that we are constantly being bombarded with news stories about what you can do to protect your brain. Two foods that come up time and time again are blueberries and fish oil, so should you consume both of these every day to avoid dementia? The answer, surprisingly, is no.

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. According to … [Read more...] about Going deeper into fish oil: Looking at the other fatty acids

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?

People absorb the habits and ways of the place they’re living in. That’s what a new UT Southwestern study proved once more when researchers from the premier academic medical center’s Human Nutrition team studied 77 U.S. South Asians — 44 with diabetes and 33 without — on their dietary choices. The researchers found that South Asians who live in the U.S. followed less nutritious diets which raised their chances of developing Type 2 diabetes. They also took in fewer calories. The scientists also … [Read more...] about South Asians living in the U.S. are consuming less beneficial nutrients; that’s why more of them are developing Type 2 diabetes

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?
