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)

In order to satisfy the bodily needs of EPA and DHA, which vary by life stage, these fatty acids are recommended by various organizations to be obtained directly from the consumption of omega-3 LCPUFA-rich foods, such as fatty fish and seafood. In effect, this bypasses the endogenous conversion of ALA. Several studies have determined that the fractional conversion of ingested ALA to DHA in humans ranges from less than 0.1% to 5%. The rest may be used for the generation of energy and stored in adipose tissue. In normal adults consuming a western diet, it is now accepted that with no changes in the diet, improvements in DHA status cannot be achieved by supplementation with ALA. The studies that showed that only a very low portion of ingested ALA is converted to DHA, were carried out with ALA doses between 1 and 3.5 g per day. However, few studies have explicitly addressed the situation when ALA intake is much higher, i.e. higher than, or comparable to, the amount of LA ingested to achieve tissue ...

Purpose.: Systemic polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) were shown to improve the symptoms of dry eye syndrome due to their anti-inflammatory effects. This study evaluated the in vitro anti-inflammatory effects of PUFAs on human corneal epithelial (HCE) cells. Methods.: HCE cells were incubated for 2 hours with different concentrations of PUFAs: alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), gamma-linolenic acid (GLA), and linoleic acid (LA). Oleic acid (OA) and dexamethasone (DM) served as negative and positive controls, respectively. Cells were stimulated with either polyinosinic:polycytidylic acid (poly I:C) or lipopolysaccharide (LPS) complex. The protein contents and mRNA expression levels of IL-6, IL-8, IL-1β, and TNF-α were evaluated with multiplex fluorescent bead immunoassay and real-time PCR, respectively. The expression of inhibitory factor-κBα (I-κBα) was evaluated with real-time PCR. Results.: The protein and mRNA levels of IL-6, IL-8, IL-1β, and TNF-α were significantly increased after ...
Blood levels of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) are considered biomarkers of status. Alpha-linolenic acid, ALA, the plant omega-3, is the dietary precursor for the long-chain omega-3 PUFA eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), docosapentaenoic acid (DPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Studies in normal h …
Atherosclerosis is the leading cause of cardiovascular diseases like myocardial infarctions and strokes. The formation of these atherosclerotic plaques occurs through localized inflammatory responses in blood vessels. Epidemiological evidence suggests omega-3 fatty acids (FAs) decrease vascular inflammation. The omega-3 FAs eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) reduce inflammation through pathways that may include the free fatty acid-4 (FFA-4) receptor. While EPA and DHA are well studied, less is known about the essential omega-3 FA from which they are synthesized: alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). Thus, this study will investigate whether ALA can activate the FFA-4 receptor and thereby contribute to anti-inflammatory responses in the endothelium. Although the FFA-4 receptor is a G-protein coupled receptor, its activation reduces the nuclear transcription factor NF-κB thereby decreasing the synthesis and release of inflammatory cytokines. The resulting decrease in inflammatory cytokines
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, ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

People use it as a dietary supplement to prevent constipation, diabetes, high cholesterol, heart disease, cancer, and several other conditions. The nutrients in flaxseed include lignans, antioxidants, fiber, protein, and polyunsaturated fatty acids such as alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), or omega-3.
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 ...

Spirometric measures of pulmonary function exhibited high heritability in the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute Family Heart Study. A genome scan of FEV , FVC, and the ratio of FEV /FVC was performed to identify chromosomal regions influencing these measures. The pulmonary traits were adjusted through multiple linear regression techniques for the effects of age, age , body mass index, height, smoking status, and pack-years of smoking. The distribution of FEV /FVC was transformed to account for nonnormality, and standardized residuals were used as the quantitative trait for variance component linkage analysis in GENEHUNTER (Whitehead Institute, Cambridge, MA). The genome scan identified regions on chromosomes 4 and 18 with logarithm of the odds favoring linkage (LOD) scores above 2.5, and these two chromosomes were further evaluated by incorporating additional marker genotyping. The FEV /FVC ratio was linked to chromosome 4 around 28 centimorgans (cM; D4S1511) with a LOD score of 3.5, and ...

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, ...
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 ...

Alpha linolenic acid (ALA) and linoleic acid (LA) are polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) of the omega 3 and 6 family respectively, and are both essential to health. These fatty acids have a number of important function in humans, and deficiency of either results in degeneration, disease and ultimately death. One of the most important functions of the essential fatty acids is the production of eicosanoids via a series of enzymatic reactions. Eicosanoids are short lived hormones that modulate inflammation, immunity, platelet aggregation, cellular growth and cellular differentiation. Plants produce ALA and LA, and humans then consume these fats in their diets. In humans, ALA and LA are converted to dihomo-γ-linoleic acid (DGLA), eicosapentanoic acid (EPA) and arachidonic acid (AA), which are the final precursors to the formation of eicosanoids. Dietary sources can also provide EPA, DGLA and AA directly.. The formation of eicosanoids from the essential fatty acids is shown in figure 1. Fatty acids ...

Heart-Friendly Flax by Luke Huber, N.D. Flax is the best source of the omega-3 fatty acid alpha linolenic acid (ALA) in nature. It is also a great source of dietary fiber and lignans (plant hormones). A growing body of research shows clearly that flaxseed is a beneficial dietary supplement for people who want to reduce their risk of heart attack, atherosclerosis, and maintain a healthy level of blood cholesterol. CHOLESTEROL Cholesterol has received more attention than any other heart disease-related risk factor. High bad LDL and total cholesterol levels are considered to be key risk factors for atherosclerosis. Flaxseed contains significant quantities of fiber, which has been reported to help lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Milled flaxseed actually has higher dietary fiber levels than that of oat bran, while also containing the important omega-3 fatty acid, ALA, both key elements in heart health. Several studies have demonstrated the benefits of milled flax. Researchers at the

Simvastatin decreased serum total fatty acid concentration by 13.0% and the concentrations of several fatty acids, including alpha-linolenic, eicosatetraenoic (C20:4 n-3), and docosahexaenoic (C22:6 n-3) acid. It decreased the proportion of myristic acid (C14:0) from total fatty acids by 11.5%, and that of palmitic, linoleic (C18:2 n-6) and alpha-linolenic acid by 2.0%, 5.3%, and 6.8%, respectively. The proportions of gamma-linolenic (C18:3 n-6), dihomo-gamma-linolenic (C20:3 n-6), and arachidonic acid (C20:4 n-6) from total fatty acids in serum were increased by 11.1%, 4.2%, and 14.2%, respectively. The effects of dietary treatment and simvastatin on the proportions of serum fatty acids were independent and additive ...
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 ...
The Pure Essentials EFA Complex is a valuable blend of essential fatty acids recommended to safeguard health. While offering support for cardiovascular, mental, circulatory, and digestive health, EFA Complex increases immunity and energy. EFAs (essential fatty acids/good fats) are not produced within the body and must be supplemented regularly in order for cells to absorb and maintain proper nutrition. Adding moisture to skin and eyes and encouraging mental soundness, EFA Complex also uses EPA and DHA, these two active ingredients found in fish oil are key structural component of the nerves, the brain, and retinal membranes. EPA is also a very important part of the normal function of the human brain and without it scientists believe we could face an array of damaging mental effects from depression to schizophrenia. The two primary EFAs are known as linoleic acid (omega-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3). These EFAs are necessary for the following processes: Formation of healthy cell membranes ...
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 ...

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).

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.
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.
First of all, hemp seeds contain generous amounts of Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids, notably linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid. Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids are indispensable for human survival and are especially important for cardiovascular health and normal brain development. Not only do they reduce triglyceride levels, protects blood vessels and lower heart attack risks, but they also delay cognitive degeneration and reduce inflammation.. According to a 2010 article published in Nutrition and Metabolism, the Omega-3 and Omega-6 content of hemp seed oil was extremely beneficial for cardiovascular health. However, when it comes to skin beauty, argan and wheat germ oil provide greater care. Hemp seeds boast a high protein content (33%) as well. If you are leading a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle, they are especially good for you because they substitute, to some extent, the benefits of animal products.. Hemp seeds are extensively used in the form of powder protein food supplements and ...
Flax seeds are good sources of many nutrients. Their health benefits are mainly due to their content of omega-3 fats, lignans and fiber. Flaxseed is high in Omega 3s (which is good to add to your diet if you dont eat much fish!). It is used to improve digestive health. It can help lower the risk of heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. Flaxseed is an excellent source of two fatty acids that are essential for human health - linoleic acid and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). It helps reduce inflammation (which can be a significant factor in conditions such as migraine headaches, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, asthma, inflammatory bowel disease, etc.). It fends off dry eyes. Protects bone health ...
Flaxseed (also known as linseed): One of the richest sources of the omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid, flax seed has anti-inflammatory properties that can help relieve joint pain. There is some evidence it may be able to modestly reduce LDL or bad cholesterol concentration. To improve absorption, grind flaxseed and use promptly to prevent oxidation of the beneficial oils ...
Although previous lab research has suggested that omega-3s, especially alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) , may enhance body cells sensitivity to insulin (the hormone which regulates blood sugar), this link has not been conclusively proven. It may be that people who consume a lot of ALA - found in flaxseeds and soy, as well as other plant sources- also have overall better health habits, including regular exercise.. Neither of the 2 recent studies found a link between fish-derived omega-3s and lowered diabetes risk. Researchers speculate this may because people do not always consume fish as part of a healthy meal. For example, the omega-3 benefits of fish may be cancelled out if it is deep-fried, slathered with tartar sauce, and eaten with a side of French fries.. Natural News applauds Dr. Odegaards emphasis on a holistic approach to avoiding diabetes rather than stressing the use of fish oil supplements. The Many other soft-gel nutritional supplements, contain hydrogenated oils as fillers. ...

Some studies suggested a positive effect against cardiometabolic diseases of supplementation of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA, C18:3 n-3) rich foods in pathological subjects, even if the total literature is controversial. In order to clarify ALA-rich chia seed action in hypertensive model with the overt pathology and without drug interference, in the present study the biochemical markers of cardiometabolic diseases (endothelin-1, ET-1; nitric oxide, NO; and bradykinin, BK) in Spontaneously Hypertensive Rats (SHRs) were analysed after 5% chia seed dietary supplementation for five weeks, and compared with the staple raw material wheat and corn. At the end of the experimental period, also plasma antioxidant capacity and inflammatory condition were evaluated. Our results showed that the chia seed group was more oxidized. On the other hand, ET-1 significantly decreased in chia seed group, and there was no difference between groups for NO, BK, and the inflammatory C-reactive protein (CRP). In conclusion, ...
