Study Shows Benefits of a High Omega-3 Diet in Older Adults
Date:8/13/2008

sh oil, high in omega-3 polyunsaturated fat. This study had administered the highest known level of omega-3 than previous studies.

During the last week, membrane fatty acids were measured on each diet. Insulin sensitivity was also assessed. The results showed that in a diet with a high intake of omega-3, triglycerides were reduced in women and free fatty acids were reduced in men. Serum C-reactive protein was also reduced with a high omega-3 diet. No changes were found in metabolic parameters or hormone responses.

"We concluded that a diet high in omega-3 increases insulin sensitivity and reduces inflammatory markers," said Harman. "However, it did not alter endocrine responsiveness after eight weeks."

These findings are consistent with other studies that have found that diets high in omega-3 and/or omega-3 supplements have anti-inflammatory benefits. Omega-3 fats are abundant in Japanese and Mediterranean diets, and are believed to contribute to low heart disease rates in those regions.

"Clearly, a diet rich in omega-3 fats is beneficial to one's heart health," said Tsitouras. "This study along with similar studies in the future will shed new light and pave the way for preventative measures for heart disease."
