From the pristine waters of the far north Atlantic, Omega Essentials™ provides the health benefits of nature’s protective essential fatty acids, EPA and DHA. T he EPA and DHA contained in Omega Essentials™ may help to maintain a healthy brain, cardiovascular system, and triglyceride levels. Below are study summaries related to omega-3 fatty acids.  Click on the PubMed links below to read the full abstract.

Selected Study Summaries:

Am J Clin Nutr. 2004 Sep;80(3):626-32
Fish intake is associated with a reduced progression of coronary artery atherosclerosis in postmenopausal women with coronary artery disease.

This study reviews the evidence that fish and omega-3 fatty acid consumption is associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular events. The study then compared fish consumption with coronary artery disease (assessed by coronary catheteriziation) in 229 women, and concluded that higher fish consumption is associated with a reduced risk of coronary artery disease in diabetic women.

Chin Med Sci J 2004 Jun;19(2):145-9
Effects of simvastain combined with omega-3 fatty acids on high sensitive C-reactive protein, lipidemia, and fibrinolysis in patients with mixed dyslipidemia.

This randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled study of patients on the drug simvastatin, demonstrated that lipid and inflammatory parameters were improved further by the addition of 3 grams/day of omega-3 fatty acids as compared to placebo.

Am J Clin Nutr. 2004 Jun;79(6):974-82
Moderate fish-oil supplementation reverses low-platelet, long-chain n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid status and reduces plasma triacylglycerol concentrations in British Indo-Asians.

This randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled study evaluated the effect of 4 grams/day of fish oil in a high risk ethnic group. The study demonstrated that the fish oil treatment significantly improved cardiovascular risk parameters (triglycerides, small dense LDL, ApoB, and platelet phospholipids) in comparison to placebo.

J Trhomb Haemost. 2003 Apr;1(4):690-7
Atorvastatin and omega-3 fatty acids protect against activation of the coagulation system in patients with combined hyperlipemia.

Clotting factors like factor VII and prothrombin are involved in heart attacks and strokes after plaque rupture, and individuals with elevated lipids have higher levels of these clotting factors. This double-blinded, placebo controlled study demonstrated that statin drugs reduce these clotting factors and the addition of 1.6 grams/day of omega 3 fatty acids further reduces these clotting factors.

Neurology. 2005 Jun 28;64(12):2040-5
Dietary fat intake and the risk of incident dementia in the Rotterdam Study.

This large prospective study followed 5386 individuals and evaluated the associations between dietary parameters and dementia. The researchers found that high total dietary fat, high saturated fat, and high cholesterol intakes were associated with dementia, especially vascular dementia. They also found that higher fish consumption was associated with a dramatic reduction in the incidence of dementia, especially Alzheimer’s disease.

Arch Neurol. 2003 Jul;60(7):940-6
Consumption of fish and n-3 fatty acids and risk of incident Alzheimer disease.

This large prospective study reviewed the evidence that omega-3 fatty acids may improve brain functioning and evaluated the association between fish and omega-3 fatty acid consumption and Alzheimer’s disease in 815 subjects. The study demonstrated that those who consumed fish once per week or more had a 60% less risk of Alzheimer’s disease compared to those who rarely ate fish, and the total intake of omega-3 fatty acids, as well as the fatty acid DHA, was associated with a lower risk of the disease.
