High-linoleate and high-alpha-linolenate diets affect learning ability and natural behavior in SAMR1 mice. (1/510)

Semipurified diets incorporating either perilla oil [high in alpha-linolenate, 18:3(n-3)] or safflower oil [high in linoleate, 18:2(n-6)] were fed to senescence-resistant SAMR1 mouse dams and their pups. Male offspring at 15 mo were examined using behavioral tests. In the open field test, locomotor activity during a 5-min period was significantly higher in the safflower oil group than in the perilla oil group. Observations of the circadian rhythm (48 h) of spontaneous motor activity indicated that the safflower oil group was more active than the perilla oil group during the first and second dark periods. The total number of responses to positive and negative stimuli was higher in the safflower oil group than in the perilla oil group in the light and dark discrimination learning test, but the correct response ratio was lower in the safflower oil group. The difference in the (n-6)/(n-3) ratios of the diets reflected the proportions of (n-6) polyunsaturated fatty acids, rather than those of (n-3) polyunsaturated fatty acids in the brain total fatty acids, and in the proportions of (n-6) and (n-3) polyunsaturated fatty acids in the total polyunsaturated fatty acids of the brain phospholipids. These results suggest that in SAMR1 mice, the dietary alpha-linolenate/linoleate balance affects the (n-6)/(n-3) ratio of brain phospholipids, and this may modify emotional reactivity and learning ability.  (+info)

Effect of dietary alpha-linolenic acid on thrombotic risk factors in vegetarian men. (2/510)

BACKGROUND: Vegetarians have lower platelet and plasma concentrations of n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) than do omnivores. We recently showed that male vegetarians have higher platelet aggregability than do omnivores. OBJECTIVE: We investigated whether male vegetarians (n = 17) who consumed an increased amount of dietary alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) showed any changes in their tissue profile of PUFAs, plasma thromboxane concentrations, platelet aggregability, or hemostatic factors. DESIGN: During the study, all subjects maintained their habitual vegetarian diets except that a proportion of dietary fat was replaced with vegetable oils and margarines that were provided. Initially, all subjects consumed a low-ALA diet (containing safflower oil and safflower oil-based margarine) for 14 d; they then consumed either a moderate-ALA diet (containing canola oil and canola oil-based margarine) or a high-ALA diet (containing linseed oil and linseed oil-based margarine) for 28 d. Blood samples were collected at day 0 (baseline), day 14, and day 42. RESULTS: Eicosapentaenoic acid, docosapentaenoic acid, total n-3 PUFAs, and the ratio of n-3 to n-6 PUFAs were significantly increased (P < 0.05), whereas the ratio of arachidonic acid to eicosapentaenoic acid was decreased (P < 0.05), in platelet phospholipids, plasma phospholipids, and triacylglycerols after either the moderate-ALA or high-ALA diet compared with the low-ALA diet. No significant differences were observed in thrombotic risk factors. CONCLUSION: ALA from vegetable oils (canola and linseed) has a beneficial effect on n-3 PUFA concentrations of platelet phospholipids and plasma lipids in vegetarian males.  (+info)

Dietary intake of alpha-linolenic acid and risk of fatal ischemic heart disease among women. (3/510)

BACKGROUND: Experimental studies in laboratory animals and humans suggest that alpha-linolenic acid (18:3n-3) may reduce the risk of arrhythmia. OBJECTIVE: The objective was to examine the association between dietary intake of alpha-linolenic acid and risk of fatal ischemic heart disease (IHD). DESIGN: This was a prospective cohort study. The intake of alpha-linolenic acid was derived from a 116-item food-frequency questionnaire completed in 1984 by 76283 women without previously diagnosed cancer or cardiovascular disease. RESULTS: During 10 y of follow-up, we documented 232 cases of fatal IHD and 597 cases of nonfatal myocardial infarction. After adjustment for age, standard coronary risk factors, and dietary intake of linoleic acid and other nutrients, a higher intake of alpha-linolenic acid was associated with a lower relative risk (RR) of fatal IHD; the RRs from the lowest to highest quintiles were 1.0, 0.99, 0.90, 0.67, and 0.55 (95% CI: 0.32, 0.94; P for trend = 0.01). For nonfatal myocardial infarction there was only a modest, nonsignificant trend toward a reduced risk when extreme quintiles were compared (RR: 0.85; 95% CI: 0.61, 1.19; P for trend = 0.50). A higher intake of oil and vinegar salad dressing, an important source of alpha-linolenic acid, was associated with reduced risk of fatal IHD when women who consumed this food > or =5-6 times/wk were compared with those who rarely consumed this food (RR: 0.46; 95% CI: 0.27, 0.76; P for trend = 0.001). CONCLUSIONS: This study supports the hypothesis that a higher intake of alpha-linolenic acid is protective against fatal IHD. Higher consumption of foods such as oil-based salad dressing that provide polyunsaturated fats, including alpha-linolenic acid, may reduce the risk of fatal IHD.  (+info)

Prevention of sudden cardiac death by dietary pure omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids in dogs. (4/510)

BACKGROUND: Rat diets high in fish oil have been shown to be protective against ischemia-induced fatal ventricular arrhythmias. Increasing evidence suggests that this may also apply to humans. To confirm the evidence in animals, we tested a concentrate of the free fish-oil fatty acids and found them to be antiarrhythmic. In this study, we tested the pure free fatty acids of the 2 major dietary omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids in fish oil: cis-5,8,11,14, 17-eicosapentaenoic acid (C20:5omega-3) and cis-4,7,10,13,16, 19-docosahexaenoic acid (C22:6omega-3), and the parent omega-3 fatty acid in some vegetable oils, cis-9,12,15-alpha-linolenic acid (C18:3omega-3), administered intravenously on albumin or a phospholipid emulsion. METHODS AND RESULTS: The tests were performed in a dog model of cardiac sudden death. Dogs were prepared with a large anterior wall myocardial infarction produced surgically and an inflatable cuff placed around the left circumflex coronary artery. With the dogs running on a treadmill 1 month after the surgery, occlusion of the left circumflex artery regularly produced ventricular fibrillation in the control tests done 1 week before and after the test, with the omega-3 fatty acids administered intravenously as their pure free fatty acid. With infusion of the eicosapentaenoic acid, 5 of 7 dogs were protected from fatal ventricular arrhythmias (P<0.02). With docosahexaenoic acid, 6 of 8 dogs were protected, and with alpha-linolenic acid, 6 of 8 dogs were also protected (P<0.004 for each). The before and after control studies performed on the same animal all resulted in fatal ventricular arrhythmias, from which they were defibrillated. CONCLUSIONS: These results indicate that purified omega-3 fatty acids can prevent ischemia-induced ventricular fibrillation in this dog model of sudden cardiac death.  (+info)

Antisense-mediated depletion of potato leaf omega3 fatty acid desaturase lowers linolenic acid content and reduces gene activation in response to wounding. (5/510)

Fatty acid omega3 desaturases act on membrane lipids to catalyse the formation of trienoic fatty acids, the most abundant in plant tissues being alpha-linolenic acid. This fatty acid is a precursor of jasmonic acid, a plant growth regulator involved in the control of wound-induced gene activation in plants and in the induction of tuberization in potato. We isolated a potato omega3 desaturase cDNA, possibly encoding a plastidial isoform, and used it to investigate its expression pattern throughout plant development and in response to wounding. Plastidial omega3 desaturase gene transcripts accumulate rapidly upon wounding, preceding the jasmonate-dependent induction of the wound-responsive proteinase inhibitor II gene. We generated transgenic potato plants constitutively expressing an antisense RNA to this plastidial omega3 desaturase. Selected transgenic lines in which the cognate omega3 desaturase mRNA is largely depleted show a marked reduction, of up to 60%, in trienoic acids in leaves and tubers. In these lines, a corresponding reduction in jasmonate content and proteinase inhibitor II expression is observed upon wounding. Our results indicate that a reduction in omega3 desaturase mRNA levels compromises the wound-induced activation of proteinase inhibitor II, suggesting that wound-induced synthesis of linolenic acid is required for jasmonic acid production. The antisense-mediated depletion of fatty acid omega3 desaturases is a viable alternative for reducing trienoic fatty acid content in plant species in which a mutant screening approach is not applicable.  (+info)

Differences in essential fatty acid requirements by enteral and parenteral routes of administration in patients with fat malabsorption. (6/510)

BACKGROUND: Essential fatty acid (EFA) requirements of patients receiving home parenteral nutrition (HPN) are uncertain. OBJECTIVE: The objective was to evaluate the influence of the route of administration (enteral compared with parenteral) on plasma phospholipid EFA concentrations. DESIGN: Intestinal absorption, parenteral supplement of EFAs, and plasma phospholipid EFA concentrations were investigated in balance studies in 4 groups (A, B, C, and D) of 10 patients with short-bowel syndrome and a fecal loss of >2000 kJ/d. Groups A (fat malabsorption <50%) and B (fat malabsorption >50%) did not receive HPN, whereas group C received HPN containing lipids (7.5 and 1.2 g/d linoleic and linolenic acids, respectively) and group D received fat-free HPN. RESULTS: Intestinal absorption of linoleic and linolenic acids was 8.9 and 1.3 g/d and 2. 6 and 0.4 g/d in groups A and B, respectively, whereas EFA absorption was negligible in groups C and D. Thus, intestinal absorption of EFAs in group A corresponded to parenteral EFA supplements in group C, whereas group D was almost totally deprived of EFAs. The median plasma phospholipid concentration of linoleic acid decreased by 21.9%, >16.3%, >13.8%, 11.0%, and >7.7% and linolenic acid by 0.3%, 0.2%, 0.2%, >0.2%, and 0.1%, respectively, in 10 healthy control subjects and groups A, B, C, and D (P < 0.001). CONCLUSIONS: Intestinally absorbed EFAs maintained plasma EFA status better than did an equal quantity of parenterally supplied EFAs. Intravenous requirements of EFAs in patients with negligible absorption of EFAs are probably higher than the amounts recommended to patients with preserved intestinal absorption of EFAs.  (+info)

Salicylhydroxamic acid inhibits delta6 desaturation in the microalga Porphyridium cruentum. (7/510)

Treatment of the microalga Porphyridium cruentum with salicylhydroxamic acid (SHAM) inhibited growth and affected fatty acid composition. At a relatively low concentration (40 microM) SHAM predominantly inhibits Delta6 desaturation. The effect of the inhibitor was most intense in phosphatidylcholine (PC) and phosphatidylethanolamine, in which the proportions of the downstream products of the Delta6 desaturase were reduced, whereas that of the substrate, 18:2, increased. As a result of the availability of 18:2, 18:3omega3, which under normal conditions is not observed, appeared predominantly in chloroplastic lipids. Pulse labeling with linoleic acid has shown that SHAM inhibits Delta6 desaturation almost immediately, suggesting an apparent inhibition of the activity of the desaturase, rather than its synthesis or that of its cofactors. Furthermore, the addition of gamma-linolenic acid to SHAM-inhibited cultures relieved the inhibition. Following exposure to the inhibitor, 18:3omega3 appeared first in chloroplastic glycolipids and only later in PC, indicating that the former are the substrates for the first dedicated step of the proposed omega3 pathway in this alga.  (+info)

Exposure to flaxseed or its lignan component during different developmental stages influences rat mammary gland structures. (8/510)

Reduction of the highly proliferative terminal end bud (TEB) structures in the developing mammary gland by differentiation to alveolar buds (ABs) and lobules has been suggested to be protective against mammary cancer. Flaxseed is high in alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) and secoisolariciresinol diglycoside (SDG). SDG is the precursor of mammalian lignans, which can affect mammary gland structures. Thus, the objective of this study was to determine the effect of lifetime, gestation and lactation or after-weaning exposure to 5 or 10% flaxseed or SDG and flaxseed oil components on the mammary gland structures of virgin female rat offspring at post-natal day 50. Lifetime or gestation and lactation exposure to flaxseed altered mammary gland structure development, whereas exposure to flaxseed after weaning had no effect. Lifetime or gestation and lactation exposure to 5% flaxseed caused endocrine changes, as suggested by delayed puberty onset and reduced number of estrous cycles. These changes reduced exposure to endogenous estrogens, leading to atrophy of mammary TEB structures. SDG, but not flaxseed oil, at the level found in 5% flaxseed produced similar effects as 5% flaxseed. This suggested that the lignans were the component in flaxseed responsible for the observed effects. Lifetime or gestation and lactation exposure to 10% flaxseed also caused endocrine changes, as suggested by early puberty onset and lengthened cycles due to prolonged estrus. This increased exposure to endogenous estrogens and stimulated mammary gland differentiation, as indicated by fewer TEBs and more ABs. Thus, lifetime or gestation and lactation exposure to 5 or 10% flaxseed induced structural changes in the mammary gland that may potentially reduce mammary cancer risk.  (+info)

Definition of alpha-linolenic acid in the Legal Dictionary - by Free online English dictionary and encyclopedia. What is alpha-linolenic acid? Meaning of alpha-linolenic acid as a legal term. What does alpha-linolenic acid mean in law?
The unique biochemical structure of alpha-linolenic acid is important and helps to make it a key player in immunity, vision, cell membranes, and the production of hormonelike compounds. Plants that provide ALA include canola (rapeseed), flaxseed (linseed), soybean oil, and pumpkin. Mackerel, salmon, and walnuts are also good omega-3 fatty acid sources. It is important to maintain an appropriate balance of omega-3 and omega-6 (another essential fatty acid) in the diet as these two substances work together to promote health. These essential fats are both examples of polyunsaturated fatty acids, or PUFAs. Omega-3 fatty acids help reduce inflammation and most omega-6 fatty acids tend to promote inflammation. An inappropriate balance of these essential fatty acids contributes to the development of disease while a proper balance helps maintain and even improve health.

Alpha-li nole nic acid (ALA) is the most commo n omega-3 fatty acid i n the Wester n diet. The relatio n of dietary i ntake of ALA to prostate ca ncer risk remai ns u nresolved. We prospectively evalu
Previous observational studies have reported associations between prostate cancer and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). However, few investigations have been able to study this relationship prospectively and in well-controlled settings. Moreover, no studies have determined whether single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) that influence ALA metabolism are associated with this common cancer. The purpose of this study was to explore associations between prostatic levels of ALA, SNPs and prostate cancer-specific biomarkers in samples collected from a previous randomized clinical trial conducted using a presurgical model and which tested the effects of flaxseed supplementation, a rich source of ALA, prior to prostatectomy (n = 134). Serum prostate-specific antigen (PSA) was determined and immunohistochemistry was used to assess tumor proliferation rate (Ki67). Prostatic ALA was determined with gas chromatography. Seven previously identified SNPs associated with delta-6 desaturase activity (rs99780, rs174537, ...
Alpha Linolenic Acid or ALA is considered an essential fatty acid because it is required for human health, but cannot be synthesized by humans. It is in fact a plant-derived fatty acid. Humans can synthesize other omega-3 fatty acids from ALA, including eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). EPA is a precursor of the series-3 prostaglandins, the series-5 leukotrienes and the series-3 thromboxanes. These eicosanoids have anti-inflammatory and anti-atherogenic properties. ALA metabolites may also inhibit the production of the pro-inflammatory eicosanoids, prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) and leukotriene B4 (LTB4), as well as the pro-inflammatory cytokines, tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) and interleukin-1 beta (IL-1 beta). Omega-3 fatty acids like ALA and its byproducts can modulate the expression of a number of genes, including those involved with fatty acid metabolism and inflammation. They regulate gene expression through their effects on the activity of transcription ...
In this large, long-term, prospective cohort study of women, ALA intake was inversely associated with the risk of SCD but not with other types of fatal CHD or nonfatal MI. The inverse association with SCD risk persisted after controlling for other dietary fats, including the long-chain n-3 fatty acids found in fish. Women in the 2 highest quintiles of ALA intake had a 38% to 40% lower SCD risk, and the risk reduction appeared linear. When examined continuously, every 0.1% increase in energy intake from ALA was associated with a 12% reduction in SCD risk. In stratified analyses, inverse associations were most apparent for women without a history of prior CVD and those above the median for EPA+DHA intake. However, tests for interaction were not significant.. The specificity of the association with SCD, as opposed to other types of cardiac events, supports the hypothesis that ALA may influence cardiovascular risk through effects on arrhythmogenesis and fatal ventricular arrhythmias. Intravenous ...
Forty-five Angus steers (358 kg BW) were utilized in a completely randomized block design with a 3 x 3 factorial arrangement of treatments to evaluate the hypothesis that differing dietary linolenic acid (from corn, flaxseed plus corn, or milo) and whole cottonseed (WCS) inclusion (0, 5, or 15% DM) would interact to alter fatty acid metabolism and deposition of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) in subcutaneous (s.c.) and interfasicular (i.f.) adipose tissues, and thereby decrease carcass quality score. During the feeding period (135 d), steers receiving flaxseed or corn diets had a greater gain:feed ratio (0.119 and 0.108, respectively) than steers receiving the milo diet (0.093). Following transportation to a local abattoir and overnight starvation, there was less decrease in weight in flaxseed-fed steers (1.51%) than in steers fed the corn (2.89%) or milo diets (3.11%). Ribeye area of steers fed milo was less than that of steers fed the corn or flaxseed diets. Lipogenesis from acetate in s.c. ...
Insulin resistance-related obesity and diabetes mellitus are the predominant causes of fatty liver disease. Here we examine the effects of dietary diacylglycerol (DG), which is a minor component of plant oils, on lipid accumulation and the expression
Rumen biohydrogenation of dietary alpha-linolenic acid gives rise in ruminants to accumulation of fatty acid intermediates, some of which may be transferred into milk. Rumelenic acid [cis-9 trans-11 cis-15 C18:3 (RLnA)] has recently been characterized, but other C18:3 minor isomers are still unknown. The objective of this work was to ...
RESULTS: A greater intake of n-3 fatty acids (eicosapentaenoic acid + docosahexaenoic acid + docosapentaenoic acid + alpha-linolenic acid) was associated with lower ventricular ectopy (beta = -0.35, P = 0.011), and this effect remained after cardiovascular comorbidities were controlled for (beta = -0.47, P = 0.003). Higher concentrations of both marine-based (eicosapentaenoic acid + docosahexaenoic acid) (beta = -0.21, P = 0.060) and plant-based (alpha-linolenic acid) (beta = -0.33, P = 0.024) fatty acids remained associated with lower ventricular ectopy after cardiovascular comorbidities were controlled for ...

A process identified as molecular distillation is the easiest method to remove the toxins...
The answer is loud, strong NO. There are 2 essential fatty acids, alpha linolenic acid (ALA/omega-3) and linolenic acid (LA/ omega-6). They are called essential because our bodies cannot make them. We eat lots of Omega-6 which is found in animal products and vegetable oils. We eat less Omega-3 which is found in leafy greens, nuts, seeds and fatty fish that eat omega-3 rich seaweed. The ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids in the diet should be close to 2:1, but in the American diet it is about 20:1. We have an imbalance of omega-6 to omega-3 not a true deficiency of omega-3. If we ate less omega-6 foods and more foods with a 1:1 ratio such as leafy greens there would be no problem, but instead of advising us to eat whole nutrient-dense foods, "health experts" advised us to eat more omega-3 in the form of fatty fish or fish oil supplements. The reason given is that omega-3 in fish and fish oil are the same as the active omega-3 fats in our bodies, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and ...

Flaxseed is popular oil seed crop rich in nutrients like protein, dietary fibre and omega- 3 fatty acid. It is well known that these nutrients help in controlling glycaemic response and provide antioxidant, and antihypertensive activity. Keeping this in mind recent research is focused on incorporation of flaxseed in different food products. Efforts were made in the present review to brief on plausible effect of flaxseed incorporation in food products such as dough rheology, oxidative stability of alpha linolenic acid, sensory and quality attributes.. ...
People who are allergic to fish should avoid fish oil or omega-3 fatty acid products derived from fish.

Taking aim. For now, people use dietary targets rather than blood-level goals-that is, if they think about omega-3s at all. The recommendation of several public health organizations that everyone eat fish twice a week just isnt on the radar screens of most homes or doctors offices. Moreover, not everyone responds the same way to a meal of omega-3s. Genes influence levels of omega-3s in the body, much as they do cholesterol. Some people, such as women of childbearing age, seem to be more effective in generating EPA and DHA from a lesser source, called alpha linolenic acid, found in certain plant oils. And, of course, not every fish meal delivers the same dose of nutrients. Nevertheless, the Japanese, who consume eight to 15 times more fish than we do-and have higher omega-3 blood levels to prove it-experience less heart disease and greater longevity despite smoking more ...
This is coming with a total of 33 calories, 6 grams of carbs (2 of which are fiber) and 3 grams of protein.. Kale contains very little fat, but a large portion of the fat in it is the omega-3 fatty acid called alpha linolenic acid.. Given the incredibly low calorie content, kale is among the most nutrient dense foods in existence. Eating more kale is a great way to dramatically increase the total nutrient content of your diet.. ...
The consequence of total fat consumption on circulating plasma lipids and the incidence of cardiovascular disease has long been a central theme in nutrition research. Less well known is the influence of specific fatty acids on vascular endothelial function and the oxidative and inflammatory responses characteristic of atherogenesis. Omega 3 ( ω-3) fatty acids, including plant derived alpha-linolenic acid (18:3n-3, ALA) and marine derived eicosapentaenoic (20:5n-3, EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (22:6n-3, DHA) have been shown to effectively modulate multiple cardiovascular risk factors in epidemiological, animal model and human clinical investigations. ALA is most commonly consumed as a major component of dietary canola and flaxseed oils and has a recommended intake of 1.1 and 1.6 g/d for women and men, respectively. EPA and DHA are consumed as fatty fish or fish oil and algae supplements with current recommended intakes of 500 mg/d (combined EPA and DHA).. ALA is thought to improve ...

What are Omega 3 fatty acids?. These polyunsaturated fats are essential nutrients as they cannot be synthesized in our body. The omega 3 fatty acids are made up of short chain alpha-linolenic acid and the long chain docosahexanoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentanoic acid (EPA). Examples of foods rich in omega 3 fatty acids are fish, shellfish, flaxseed, walnuts and soy bean.. Importance to the retina?. The brain and eye are highly enriched with omega 3 fatty acids which accumulate in these tissues during early neonatal life. DHA is a major structural lipid in the retina particularly the disc membranes of the photoreceptor outer segments. The photoreceptors are very metabolically active as they are responsible for converting light energy into electrical impulses to be transmitted to the brain for interpretation of images. Consequently, a steady supply of DHA is required for normal retinal function. The complete function of omega 3 fatty acids in the retina is still not fully understood but it is ...
Danish chef Oscar Umahro Cadogan offers us a Sesame-Flaxseed Shake with Banana that beats a regular milkshake, both in terms of taste and nutritive value. The sesame seeds contain lots of calcium and other minerals and the flaxseed is rich in alpha-linolenic acid, which is anti-inflammatory.

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Ingestion of alpha linolenic acid (ALA), with the richest source among dry fruits such as walnuts, is associated with cardiovascular prevention. The aim of this study was to selectively evaluate the effects of moderate walnut consumption on the levels of ALA and its metabolic derivatives in human blood. METHODS AND RESULTS: After a 2-week run-in period, 10 volunteers consumed 4 walnuts per day (in addition to their habitual diet) for 3 weeks. Fatty acid profiles, with special attention to levels of ALA and long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC-PUFA), were assessed in blood drops collected from fingertips. The data indicate that the administration of a few walnuts a day for 3 weeks significantly increases blood levels, not only of ALA (from 0.23+/-0.07 SD to 0.47+/-0.13 SD), but also of its longer chain derivative eicosapentaenoic acids (EPA) (from 0.23+/-0.37 to 0.82+/-0.41) with levels remaining elevated over basal values after washout. CONCLUSION: The findings of this ...

Alteration of the lipid content and fatty acid (FA) composition of foods can result in a healthier product. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of flaxseed oil or sunflower oil in the goat diet on fatty acid composition of muscle and expression of lipogenic genes in the semitendinosus (ST) muscle. Twenty-one entire male Boer kid goats were fed diets containing different levels of linoleic acid (LA) and α-linolenic acid (LNA) for 100 days. Inclusion of flaxseed oil increased (p < 0.05) the α-linolenic acid (C18:3n-3) concentration in the ST muscle. The diet high in α-linolenic acid (p < 0.05) decreased the arachidonic acid (C20:4n-6) and conjugated linolenic acid (CLA) c-9 t-11 content in the ST muscle. There was a significant (p < 0.05) upregulation of PPARα and PPARγ gene expression and downregulation of stearoyl-CoA desaturase (SCD) gene in the ST muscle for the high α-linolenic acid group compared with the low α-linolenic acid group. The results of the present study
The effects on humans of the ω-3 (omega-3) and ω-6 (omega-6) essential fatty acids (EFAs) are best characterized by their interactions; they cannot be understood separately. Arachidonic acid (AA) is a 20-carbon ω-6 conditionally essential fatty acid. It sits at the head of the "arachidonic acid cascade" - more than 20 different signalling paths that control a wide array of bodily functions, but especially those functions involving inflammation, cell growth and the central nervous system. Most AA in the human body derives from dietary linoleic acid (another essential fatty acid, 18:2 ω-6), which is derived from nuts, seeds, vegetable oils and animal fats. In the inflammatory response, two other groups of dietary essential fatty acids form cascades that parallel and compete with the arachidonic acid cascade. EPA (20:5 ω-3) provides the most important competing cascade. It is ingested from oily fish, and algae oil or derived from dietary alpha-linolenic acid found in, for instance, walnuts, ...
Flaxseeds have become very popular recently, because they are a richest source of the Omega 3 essential fatty acid; known as Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA), lignans and fiber. People in the new millennium may see flaxseed as an important new food super star.. Flaxseed also increase oxygen consumption at the cellular level resulting in increased energy and stamina, and feeling of well-being. In fact, theres nobody who wont benefit by adding flaxseed to his or her diet. Even Gandhi wrote in his book: "Wherever flaxseed becomes a regular food item among the people, there will be better health." In the 8th century, French king Charle magne even passed a law requiring his people to use flax seed so that they would be healthier.. Omega-3 Fatty Acid - Anti-entropy Factor. The omega 3 fatty acids include the essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (18:3 n-3) and longer chain metabolites Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA 22:6 n-3) & Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA 20:5 n-3). In Omega 3 acids, the first double bond is ...
Purpose There is an increased interest in the benefits of conjugated α-linolenic acid (CLNA) on obesity-related complications such as insulin resistance and diabetes. The aim of the study was to investigate whether a 1 % dietary supplementation of mono-CLNA isomers (c9-t11-c15-18:3 + c9-t13-c15-18:3) improved glucose and lipid metabolism in neonatal pigs. Methods Since mono-CLNA isomers combine one conjugated two-double-bond system with an n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) structure, the experimental protocol was designed to isolate the dietary structural characteristics of the molecules by comparing a CLNA diet with three other dietary fats: (1) conjugated linoleic acid (c9-t11-18:2 + t10-c12-18:2; CLA), (2) non-conjugated n-3 PUFA, and (3) n-6 PUFA. Thirty-two piglets weaned at 3 weeks of age were distributed among the four dietary groups. Diets were isoenergetic and food intake was controlled by a gastric tube. After 2 weeks of supplementation, gastro-enteral (OGTT) and parenteral ...

Flaxseeds are the hard, tiny seeds of Linum usitatissimum , the flax plant, which has been widely used for thousands of years as a source of food and clothing. There are at least three flaxseed components with potential health benefits. The first is fiber, valuable in treating constipation . Flaxseed also contains alpha-linolenic acid, a type of omega-3 fatty acid similar to the omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil, but significantly different in other ways, and perhaps offering some of the same benefits. Finally, substances called lignans in flaxseed have phytoestrogenic properties making them somewhat similar to the isoflavones in soy. The oil made from flaxseed has no appreciable amounts of lignans, but it does contain alpha-linolenic acid. See the articles on Flaxseed Oil and Lignans for more information on these substances.
The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy of high-oleic canola oil and a high-oleic canola/flaxseed oil blend as compared to a typical Western diet on plasma lipids, fatty acid profiles, and risk factors associated with cardiovascular disease in hypercholesterolemic patients.

Introduction:Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) are useful in reducing deleterious effects of ischemia-reperfusion (IR). This study was designed to compare the effects of treatment with flaxseed oil, rich in linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid, and fish oil containing long PUFAs, eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid, on IR injury in the rat kidney. Methods:As an experimental study, 32 male Wistar rats were randomly divided into four groups, each 8 rats: Sham, ischemia-reperfusion (IR), flaxseed oil (FLO), and fish oil (FO). Correspondingly, experimental groups were administered saline and flaxseed or fish oil at doses of 0.4 g/kg, through gavage. After 4 weeks, the rats underwent right nephrectomy and 45-min clamping of the left renal arteries followed by 24 h reperfusion. Renal function was assessed by measuring serum creatinine (Cr) and blood urea nitrogen (BUN) levels.The oxidative stress and serum aspartate aminotranferase (AST) activitywere measured. Each kidney was sectioned ...
Abstract: DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Whether dietary omega-3 (or n-3) polyunsaturated fatty acids are causally related to risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) is a major, unresolved question in preventive cardiology. Essential n-3 fatty acids are eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA; C20:5,n-3) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA; C22:6,n-3) on one hand, and their parent compound alpha-linolenic acid (ALA; C18:3, n-3) on the other hand. The intake of n-3 fatty acids is below recommended levels in most Western populations. The Alpha Omega Trial is a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of the effect of low-dose supplementation of ALA and EPA-DHA on coronary mortality. A total of 4000 Dutch men and women aged 60-80 years who had a myocardial infarction in the past 10 years are randomly allocated to 2 g/d of ALA, 400 mg/d of EPA-DHA, 2 g/d ALA + 400 mg/d EPADHA, or placebo, for 3 years. Increased intake of n-3 fatty acids is achieved through daily use of 20 g of margarine on bread. ...
The aim of the present study was to examine the effects of feeding alpha-linolenic (ALA) acid on fatty acid composition and quality of bovine sperm and on antioxidative capacity of seminal plasma. Nine bulls (ALA bulls) were fed with 800 g rumen-resistant linseed oil with a content of 50% linolenic acid and eight bulls with 400 g palmitic acid (PA bulls). Sperm quality was evaluated for plasma membrane and acrosome intact sperm (PMAI), the amount of membrane lipid peroxidation (LPO), and the percentage of sperm with a high DNA fragmentation index (DFI). Fatty acid content of sperm was determined using gas chromatography. Total antioxidant capacity, glutathione peroxidase, and superoxide dismutase activity were determined in seminal plasma. Feeding ALA increased (P , 0.05) the docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) content in bulls whereas in PA bulls did not change. PMAI increased after cryopreservation in ALA bulls as well as in PA bulls during the experiment period (P , 0.005). LPO of sperm directly after ...
Omega-3s belong to a group of fatty acids known as long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids. There are three important Omega-3 fatty acids: alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). EPA and DHA are found in fish, while ALA is found only in plant foods such as flaxseed meal. EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids can only be made in a limited capacity in dogs and are even more poorly synthesized in cats. Therefore, supplementing your pets diet with these nutrients can significantly change their levels of health-promoting Omega-3s ...

Essential fatty acids (EFA) include the omega-3 and the omega-6 families of fatty acids. While dogs and cats can synthesise some EFA from other fats in the diet, they cannot synthesise them all, hence the term essential, because of a dietary requirement for some EFA. The parent EFA of the omega-3 family is alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), from which eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are synthesised. The parent EFA of the omega-6 family is linoleic acid (LA), from which the arachidonic acid (AA) is synthesised. When diets are supplemented with EFA, either the parent compounds (ALA, LA) can be used, or their derivatives (EPA, DHA, AA). Addition of the parent compounds to the diet requires their conversion to the biologically active forms, while providing the active EFA directly does not. Cats are special in this regard because they cannot convert ALA to EPA or DHA, nor can they convert LA to AA, therefore they require diets already containing AA, EPA and DHA. When EFA are ...
J.Nutr.Biochem., 2011, IF: 4.538, PMID: 21889886. Dietary intake of polyunsaturated fatty acids, including omega-3 and omega-6, could modulate chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) persistent inflammation. We aimed to assess the relationship between dietary intake of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids and serum inflammatory markers in COPD. A total of 250 clinically stable COPD patients were included. Dietary data of the last 2 years were assessed using a validated food frequency questionnaire (122 items), which provided levels of three omega-3 fatty acids: docosahexaenoic acid, eicosapentaenoic acid and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA); and two omega-6 fatty acids: linoleic acid and arachidonic acid (AA). Inflammatory markers [C-reactive protein (CRP), interleukin (IL)-6, IL-8 and tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFalpha)] were measured in serum. Fatty acids and inflammatory markers were dichotomised according to their median values, and their association was assessed using multivariate logistic ...

At the top of each chain respectively, linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid have to be obtained from food; they cannot be manufactured in the body and therefore are known as Essential Fatty Acids, EFAs. As you go down each chain, GLA, DGLA and AA and EPA and DHA are manufactured in the body from the preceding fatty acid in the chain with the help of special enzymes. Delta-6-desaturase is the enzyme that catalyses the chemical reaction that produces both GLA and EPA. Without this enzyme the body is short of all the other fatty acids. Professor Puri goes on to explain how an invading virus can block delta-6-desaturase from working properly, hence blocking adequate production of GLA and EPA. The virus does this for self preservation, because EPA has anti-viral properties. With reduced EPA and eicosanoids, defences are weakened and the virus is free to reproduce rapidly. "Viruses are able to fuse their cell membranes with those of the host (human) cells they are invading. Once complete fusion is ...

Omega-3 fats are a nutrient powerhouse, shown to improve heart health and mood. Of the omega-3s, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) are the most impressive. "They are longer than other omega-3s (like alpha-linolenic acid, or ALA), so they make your cell membranes more fluid, which helps brain, eye and nerve cells function better," says Kantha Shelke, Ph.D., a spokesperson for the Institute of Food Technologists. Yet most Americans only get 100 mg a day of DHA/EPA, far short of the recommended 250 mg. Find out how you can get more.. ...
Health Benefits associated with Fish Oil. The gains of fish oil contain it is capability to help in remedy involving heart and soul diseases, high cholesterol, depression, anxiety, AHDH, low immunity, cancer, diabetes, inflammation, arthritis, IBD, AIDS, Alzheimers disease, eyesight disorders, macular death and ulcers. It is usually helps in weight loss, pregnancy, virility along with natual skin care (particular regarding diseases for instance psoriasis, acne).. Most on the these kind of what are the benefits regarding fish oil could be related to the occurrence associated with Omega three efas for example Docosahexaenoic plaque created by sugar (DHA) along with Eicosapentaenoic acidity (EPA). Other useful essential fatty acids include things like Alpha-linolenic acid solution or perhaps ALA in addition to Gamma-linolenic acidity or GLA.. The different types associated with fish and these can be a good resource associated with perch oil are generally mackerel, rainbow trout, river trout, ...
There are two major types of omega-3 fatty acids in our diets: One type is alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which is found in some vegetable oils, such as soybean, rapeseed (canola), and flaxseed, and in walnuts.
The omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA, 22:6n-3) has been previously shown to facilitate some of the vital functions of astrocytes. Since some dietary oils contain alpha-linolenic acid (ALA, 18:3n-3), which is a precursor of DHA, we examined their effect on astrocyte development. Fatty acids (FAs) were isolated from ...
While there are combination products that deliver Omega-3, Omega-6, and Omega-9 fatty acids together, the focus has been more on specific sources such as fish or flax, along with some more unusual ones. Of course, natural oil sources are not comprised of a single fatty acid. For example, natural fish oil can not only supply EPA and DHA but also originally supplies ALA, cholesterol, triglycerides, and other fatty acids; though many of these components can be removed during processing to provide purer and stronger materials that are richer in EPA and DHA to require far fewer capsules to reach desired levels of these two fractions. Flax oil is best known as a vegetarian source of the omega-3 fatty acid ALA (alpha-linolenic acid), but ALA levels are only about 55% of the total; flax oil also contains about 19% omega-9 as oleic acid, 14% omega-6 as linoleic acid, and 12% saturated fats. The conversion of ALA to EPA is a significant metabolic hurdle. Women do this conversion better than men; people ...
In nutrition, recommendations were for walnuts, blueberries, and nectarines. Walnuts are good because they are the only nut containing a significant amount of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), and because they are mainly composed of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA, both omega-3 and omega-6) rather than monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA), as most other nuts. Blueberries continue to be an important suggestion for anti-aging. They contain anthocyanins, antioxidants which may prevent inflammation and help to improve brain signals and memory function. The 2011 Blueberry Health Study reported that individual cognitive performance improved 1% over a one year period from consuming one half cup to two cups of blueberries per day. Necatrines (and acai) also have antioxidant properties and have been found to reduce oxidative damage and improve longevity in Drosophila melanogaster (Boyd, Free Radic Biol Med, 2011 ...
Examples of unsaturated fatty acids are oleic acid, alpha-linolenic acid and linoleic acid. They are present in both plant and animal sources of food.

0014 Epidemiologic studies suggest that higher consumption of alpha linolenic acid, eicosapentaenoic acid, and docosahexanoic acid is associated with lower risk of coronary heart disease (CHD). Little is known about the influence of the linoleic-to-linolenic ratio on the relation of linolenic acid to CHD. We used data collected on 4,406 participants of the NHLBI Family Heart Study (mean age of 52 years)to examine the relation between dietary linolenic acid and prevalent coronary heart disease and to determine if such a relation was influenced by fish consumption and linoleic-to-linolenic ratio. Dietary linolenic acid was assessed by semiquantitative food frequency questionnaire. We used generalized estimating equations to estimate the odds ratios of coronary heart disease across age- and energy-adjusted quintiles of linolenic acid. From the lowest to the highest quintile of linolenic acid, the prevalence odds ratios (95 % CI) of coronary heart disease were 1.00 (referent), 0.77 (0.49-1.21), 0.51 ...

Leptin is a key neuroendocrine hormone regulating food intake, metabolism, and fat accumulation, and it may also affect blood pressure and contribute to hypertension through sympathetic activation in the vasculature or at the renal level. Although previous studies have shown that the distribution of leptin is significantly different between males and females, as is the risk of hypertension between males and females, results regarding the role of leptin in the gender-specific regulation of blood pressure are controversial. Thus, we performed family-based association analyses in the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute Family Heart Study to test the hypothesis that LEPTIN gene variants and the plasma leptin level influence variability in blood pressure and the risk of hypertension differently by gender. We identified significant associations between LEPTIN single nucleotide polymorphisms with blood pressure and hypertension, but in postmenopausal women only. We also identified significant
Flaxseed oil is a delicate, nut-flavored oil that boasts a high nutritional profile. The flax plant has provided sustenance for humans at least as far back as recorded history, and for thousands of years it has been prized for food as well as for fiber used for clothing. Derived from the tiny, nutrient-dense flaxseed, flaxseed oil is a good source of protein, potassium, boron, and linoleic acid (an "essential fatty acid" needed for survival), as well as beta-carotene. Flaxseed oil also contains a beneficial fat, alpha-linolenic acid, an omega-3 fatty acid that is under investigation for its ability to reduce risk of a host of conditions, including atherosclerosis, hypertension, stroke, certain cancers, immune and inflammatory disorders, and skin ailments. Alpha-linolenic, a polyunsaturated fat abundant in flaxseed oil, is vital for proper functioning of nerve cells, cell membranes, cell tissues, and prostaglandins (hormonelike substances that indirectly exert anti-inflammatory actions). Flaxseed ...
ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS (EFA, vitamin F) Two fatty acids that cannot be synthesized by the body and must be provided by the diet. The essential fatty acids LINOLEIC ACID and ALPHA LINOLENIC ACID are polyunsaturated FATTY ACIDS, that is, they possess two or more double bonds and lack several hydrogen atoms found in saturated fatty acids. They differ in their location of double bonds, that is, bonds between carbon atoms that are deficient in hydrogen atoms. This small chemical difference has a huge nutritional impact. Linoleic acid contains 18 carbon atoms and belongs to the omega-6 family of fatty acids, in which the first double bond occurs at the sixth carbon atom of the molecular chain. Linoleic acid serves as the parent of a large polyunsaturated fatty acid, called ARACHIDONIC ACID. Arachidonic acid in turn forms PROSTAGLANDINS (PGE2) and thromboxanes (TXA,), hormone-like lipids that tend to promote blood clotting, induce pain and inflammation and cause smooth muscle contraction. Another ...

Many people now realise the importance of consuming good fats and reducing harmful fats. A considerable amount of research and clinical evidence shows the health benefits of these good fats. The good fats are the two polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) that can not be made in the body.. They are Omega 6 linoleic acid (LA) and Omega 3 alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). They must be provided by the diet as the body is unable to make them. Within the body,x both can be converted to other PUFAs such as arachidonic acid, or eicosopentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).. Both Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids are essential for optimal physiological function and growth and a healthy diet should include a balance of the two essential fatty acids. Human beings evolved consuming a diet that contained an equal amount of Omega 3 and Omega 6 essential fatty acids. Today, in Western diets, the ratio is about 1: 15-20 in favour of Omega 6. The reason for this imbalance is the increased consumption of ...
Flaxseed may be small, but its health benefits are big. It contains numerous salubrious components, with highlighted nutrients being omega-3 fatty acid ALA (alpha-linolenic acid), fiber and lignans.. Omega-3 fatty acids are good fats that may help lower total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein (LDL or bad) cholesterol levels, reduce inflammation and reduce the risk of certain cancers. Fiber can help relieve constipation, control cholesterol levels and keep you feeling full longer. Flaxseed also contains lignans, which provide antioxidant protection. To ensure you are getting the most benefit out of flaxseed, it must be ground or crushed. This is because the body cannot break down the whole flaxseed to access the omega-3-containing oil. You can purchase flaxseed whole or ground as flaxseed meal. Whole seeds, oftentimes less expensive, can be ground using a coffee grinder or food processor. Once ground, flaxseed should be stored in the refrigerator in an airtight, non-transparent container, ...

Obesity has reached epidemic proportions, becoming increasingly common at younger ages. Recent evidence suggests that the unbalanced consumption of different fats, such as a high linoleic acid (LA) to alpha-linolenic acid (LNA) ratio diet, is a risk factor for obesity. Here, the authors examine the effects of transgenerational consumption of a high LA/LNA ratio diet using mice. Mice fed this diet gained weight, a trend that transgressed subsequent generations. The high-fat diet changed the lipid composition in the plasma, adipose tissue and mothers milk, increasing LA and arachidonic acid (ARA) while decreasing long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids, such as eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acids (DHA). While the atypical lipid profile and weight reverted to normal when mice were switched to a standard diet, an incomplete reversion in the epididymal fat pad was observed. Furthermore, the offspring of the mice were heavier at weaning, an effect that persisted despite receiving a ...
Although attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is associated with deficits in docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), an omega-3 fatty acid implicated in dopamine and glutamate synaptic plasticity, its role in neuroplastic brain changes that occur following repeated amphetamine (AMPH) treatment are not known. This study used pharmacological magnetic resonance imaging to investigate the impact of repeated AMPH exposure and alterations in brain DHA levels on AMPH-induced brain activation patterns. Male rats were fed a diet with no n-3 fatty acids (Deficient, DEF, n = 20), a diet fortified with preformed DHA (fish oil, FO, n = 20), or a control diet fortified with alpha-linolenic acid (n = 20) from P21 to P90 ...
Recent studies suggest that one third of cancers are preventable by reducing consumption of omega-6 fatty acids and increasing omega-3 fatty acid intake. While omega-6 fatty acids promote inflammation and cell growth, omega-3 fatty acids are anti-inflammatory and inhibit cell growth. This makes them useful in the treatment as well as the prevention of cancer.. An omega-6 to omega-3 ratio between 4:1 and 1:1 is considered ideal, but the average Americans diet is closer to 20:1. The most important omega-3 fatty acids are alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). ALA is found predominantly in plant sources, while fatty cold water fish such as salmon and mackerel are the best sources of DHA and EPA. While the human body can synthesize DHA and EPA from ALA, conversion is not very efficient, especially in men (on average, men are able to convert 5-10% of ALA to DHA and EPA, compared to 10-30% for women, and some men arent able to synthesize DHA at all). ...
Hemp Seed is Nutritious. Hemp Seeds are one of natures most perfect foods and contain high levels of vitamins A, C and E and beta-carotene and are rich in protein, carbohydrates, minerals and fiber. A recent study from Spains University of Seville found that hemp seed has an ideal ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 fatty acids, in addition to providing some compounds which are thought to lower high blood pressure. The Spanish analysis of hempseed oil revealed that it contains sterols, aliphatic alcohols and linolenic acids, including alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), that the researchers wrote may have "favorable nutritional implications and beneficial physiological effects on the prevention of coronary heart disease and cancer.". ...
The body needs fatty acids to survive and is able to make all but two of them: linoleic acid (LA), in the omega-6 family, and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) in the omega-3 family.
Failure to provide omega 3 fatty acids in the perinatal period results in alterations in nerve growth factor levels, dopamine production and permanent elevations in blood pressure. The present study investigated whether changes in brain (i.e., hypothalamus) glycerophospholipid fatty acid profiles induced by a diet rich in omega 6 fatty acids and very low in alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) during pregnancy and the perinatal period could be reversed by subsequent feeding of a diet containing ALA. Female rats (6 per group) were mated and fed either a low ALA diet or a control diet containing ALA throughout pregnancy and until weaning of the pups at 3 weeks. At weaning, the pups (20 per group) remained on the diet of their mothers until 9 weeks, when half the pups were switched onto the other diet, thus generating four groups of animals. At 33 weeks, pups were killed, the hypothalamus dissected from the male rats and analysed for glycerophospholipid fatty acids. In the animals fed the diet with very ...

Insulin action was assessed with the euglycemic clamp. Diets high in saturated, monounsaturated (omega-9), or polyunsaturated (omega-6) fatty acids led to severe insulin resistance; glucose infusion rates [GIR] to maintain euglycemia at approximately 1000 pM insulin were 6.2 +/- 0.9, 8.9 +/- 0.9, and 9.7 +/- 0.4 mg.kg-1. min-1, respectively, versus 16.1 +/- 1.0 mg.kg-1.min-1 in chow-fed controls. Substituting 11% of fatty acids in the polyunsaturated fat diet with long-chain omega-3 fatty acids from fish oils normalized insulin action (GIR 15.0 +/- 1.3 mg.kg-1.min-1). Similar replacement with short-chain omega-3 (alpha-linolenic acid, 18:3 omega 3) was ineffective in the polyunsaturated diet (GIR 9.9 +/- 0.5 mg.kg-1.min-1) but completely prevented the insulin resistance induced by a saturated-fat diet (GIR 16.0 +/- 1.5 mg.kg-1.min-1) and did so in both the liver and peripheral tissues. Insulin sensitivity in skeletal muscle was inversely correlated with mean muscle triglyceride accumulation (r = ...

Recent research in the journal Nutrition and Cancer suggests walnuts may thwart the growth of breast cancer. In a study out of Marshall University School of Medicine in West Virginia, researchers substituted the equivalent of two ounces of walnuts per day into the diet of one group of mice; the other group was fed a calorically equivalent, but walnut-free, diet. After 34 days, the growth rate of tumors in the walnut eaters was half that of the mice who ate no walnuts. Experts think walnuts anti-inflammatory properties-which could come from the omega-3 fat alpha-linolenic acid, phytosterols or antioxidants-may give them their tumor-fighting potential. One caveat: the study dose of two ounces supplies 370 calories. Still, "walnuts can be part of a healthy diet that can reduce your risk for cancer," says lead researcher Elaine Hardman, Ph. D. -Brierley Wright, M.S., R.D., Nutrition Editor ...

The phospholipid polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) hypothesis of depression is enlightening a promising path to discover the unsolved of depression. There are two main types of PUFAs in the human body. The omega-6 (n-6) series derived from cis-linoleic acid (LA, 18: 2) and the omega-3 (n-3) series derived from α-linolenic acid (ALA, 18: 3), n-3 and n-6 PUFAs are important constituents of all cell membranes. They are essential for survival of humans and other mammals, and cannot be synthesized in the body. The inability of vertebrates to synthesis linoleic acid (18:2ω6) and α-linolenic acid (18:3ω3) leads to essential requirement for these fatty acids (FAs) in diet (Pinsu, 2009 ; Dennis et al., 1993). There are three major types of omega 3 fatty acids including alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and also docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) (Alshatwi & Alrefai, 2007). Omega-3 fatty acids such as eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are highly ...
The role of the long-chain omega-3 (n-3) fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in lipid metabolism and inflammation has been extensively studied; however, little is known about the relationship between docosapentaenoic acid (DPA, 22:5 n-3) and inflammation and triglycerides (TG). We evaluated whether n-3 DPA content of red blood cells (RBC) was associated with markers of inflammation (interleukin-6 (IL-6), tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α), and C-reactive protein (CRP) and fasting TG prior to n-3 supplementation in two studies (Study 1: n = 115, aged 20-44 years, body mass index (BMI) 20-30 kg/m2, TG = 34-176 mg/dL; Study 2: n = 28, aged 22-65 years, BMI 24-37 kg/m2, TG = 141-339 mg/dL). We also characterized the dose-response effects of n-3 fatty acid supplementation on RBC n-3 DPA after five months of supplementation with fish oil (Study 1: 0, 300, 600, 900, and 1800 mg/day EPA + DHA) and eight weeks of prescription n-3 ethyl esters (Study 2: 0, 850, and 3400 mg/day

Soybean oil (SBO), menhaden fish oil (FO), chicken fat (CF) or hydrogenated soybean oil (HSBO) were incorporated at 5% of the total diet to study changes in the immunological status of both Japanese quail (JAP) and Bobwhite quail (BOB). The SBO diet, in which 66% of the total fatty acids were polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), was rich in linoleic acid (LA 18:2 n-6), alpha-linolenic acid (ALA 18:3 n-3) and low in saturated fatty acid (SFA). The FO diet which contained about 50% PUFA, had only 40% n-6 fatty acids and 8% n-3 PUFA. The trans fatty acid isomers and other monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFA) were high in the HSBO diet. The diet containing CF provided a relatively balanced fatty acid composition with 18% SFA, 31% MUFA and 50% PUFA. Plasma fatty acid and hepatic fatty acid profiles consistently reflected their respective dietary lipid treatments. There were no differences in the fatty acid profile between blood and liver within respective dietary treatments in the two species. Dietary ...
How does Sea buckthorn dried pulp differ from Sea buckthorn oil meal?. According to the single source of origin it is the synonyms, according to the other it is the different things. The second sources point up that there are milled Sea buckthorn seeds in oil meal, and there are only berry skins in dried pulp.. Sea buckthorn dried pulp produced by Altai-Zanddorn does not contain Sea buckthorn seeds; they are separated from fruit pulp at the first stage of berry processing and seeds are left intact.. Useful properties of Sea buckthorn dried pulp. Sea buckthorn dried pulp is a high-energy product with big content of carbos, cellulose, protein and ash. Besides of that dried pulp has anti-oxidant action as well as it contains high concentration of vitamin B group (folic and nicotinic acid) and organic acids (tartaric, apple and amber acids).. Thus Sea buckthorn dried pulp can be used for production of functional food and biologically active additives to enhance their nutritive value.. Even more, ...

  • Table 1 Formulation and fatty acid composition of the experimental diets. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Postprandial lipaemia varies with gender and the composition of dietary fat due to the partitioning of fatty acids between beta-oxidation and incorporation into triacylglycerols (TAGs). (biomedcentral.com)
  • We therefore studied the postprandial lipid response of women to an ALA-rich oil in comparison with olive oil and butter, and characterized the fatty acid composition of total lipids, TAGs, and non-esterified fatty acids (NEFAs) in plasma. (biomedcentral.com)
  • The inefficiency of the conversion of 18:3n-3 to 20:5n-3 indicates that the biosynthesis of long-chain n-3 PUFA from alpha-linolenic acid is limited in healthy individuals. (nih.gov)
  • The ALA-rich oil significantly affected different plasma lipid fractions and improved the ratio of n-6 to n-3 fatty acids several hours postprandially. (biomedcentral.com)
  • With this 10:1 ratio of dietary n6 to n3 LCPUFA, the formation of pro-inflammatory/aggregatory eicosanoids from LA is favored over those from n3 fatty acids showing anti-inflammatory/aggregatory effects. (biomedcentral.com)
  • ALA and oleic acid levels were significantly increased in plasma after ALA-rich oil and olive oil meals, respectively. (biomedcentral.com)
  • Alpha-linolenic acid may protect against cardiovascular disease. (unboundmedicine.com)
  • Increased postprandial plasma triacylglycerol (TAG) levels have been shown to increase the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in women more than in men [ 1 ], and since most of the day is spent in the postprandial state, it is important to characterize the ways in which different dietary fatty acids (FAs) influence postprandial lipaemia.
