Supplementation with ω-3 PUFA can reduce gingival inflammation in periodontitis

  • 04/20/2018

The bacteria present in dental biofilm in periodontal diseases produce potent substrates that trigger the inflammatory response, while bacterial recolonisation after interventions such as root scaling and planing is very rapid, limiting...

DHA can delay the development of diabetic nephropathy

  • 04/11/2018

Diabetic nephropathy (DN), one of the microvascular complications of diabetes, is a major cause of death among patients with type 1 diabetes, while in those with type 2 diabetes (DT2) it is just below atherosclerotic injuries to coronary...

High serum concentrations of ω-3 PUFA are associated with a lower incidence of CAD between the ages of 55 and 65 years

  • 04/05/2018

Recent studies on the association between omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (ω-3 PUFA) and reduction in cardiovascular risk differ in their conclusions. Despite the inconsistent results, the American Heart Association recommends...

Fish oil, resolvins and diabetic neuropathic pain

  • 03/28/2018

Peripheral neuropathy affects approximately 50% of patients with diabetes. Experimental trials, performed by the author of this study, using a fish oil as treatment in animal models of type 1 and type 2 diabetes, have shown that it could...

n-3 PUFA consumption after the diagnosis of bowel cancer and disease-free survival

  • 03/23/2018

Experimental studies indicate that marine-origin omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFAs) can prevent the progress of colorectal cancer, partly by inhibiting prostaglandin-endoperoxide synthase 2 (PTGS2), but the data in humans are...

It is becoming increasingly clear that EPA and DHA have different effects

  • 03/16/2018

Among the risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CD) are high cholesterol, high concentrations of low-density lipoproteins (LDL-c) and triglycerides (TG), low concentrations of high-density lipoproteins (HDL-c), small LDL particle size,...

The omega-6 to omega-3 ratio plays an important role in depression

  • 03/02/2018

Various biochemical mechanisms could explain the association between polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) and depression, such as: the anti-inflammatory effect of omega-3 PUFAs could modulate over-activation of the immune system associated...

Fish consumption improves the quality of sleep in children

  • 02/21/2018

Several animal studies indicate that omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFAs) could have an effect on sleep through different mechanisms: regulating endogenous production of melatonin (involved in regulating the circadian rhythm and...

High omega-3 consumption could provide protection from glaucoma

  • 02/15/2018

Identifying possible links between diet and health disorders opens up the possibility of acting on dietary consumption (a modifiable risk factor) as a preventative measure for disease. According to the World Health Organisation, glaucoma...

Dietary DHA could determine osteoblast formation

  • 02/09/2018

The phenotye of mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) is very flexible and susceptible to autonomous cell and exogenous regulation. MSC differentiation produces exclusive membrane phenotypes for osteoblasts (bone cells synthesised by bone marrow)...
