Docosahexaenoic acid or DHA is an omega-3 essential fatty acid. DHA is the most abundant essential fatty acid (polyunsaturated fatty acids, PUFAs) in the brain and retina.
In a recent study published in the journal PLoS ONE, researchers in Spain performed a systematic review of pneumolysin (PLY) toxin as a molecular target to develop novel therapeutics against Streptococcus pneumoniae.
In a recent review published in the journal Frontiers in Pediatrics, researchers at the Medical College of Wisconsin presented an overview of the pathophysiological mechanisms, health implications, and management options for obesity among children and adults.
Mercury content in RBCs and arsenobetaine in urine could be considered seafood consumption biomarkers during pregnancy.
Bipolar disorder (BD) is a debilitating condition characterized by alternating states of depression (known as depressive episodes) and abnormal excitement or irritability (known as manic episodes).
Researchers assessed the effects of consuming nuts on cognition.
Higher levels of omega 3 fatty acids found in seafood are associated with a moderately lower risk of chronic kidney disease and a slower decline in kidney function, finds a study published by The BMJ.
Researchers assessed the function of lipids in metabolic diseases.
The anti-neurodegenerative effects of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and DHA-rich phospholipids (DH-PL) derived from fisheries and aquaculture byproducts.
In a new study, researchers assessed the impact of maternal obesity on brain development in the fetus.
Researchers summarize current knowledge about underlying mechanisms and potential therapeutic approaches for the effects of COVID-19 on the gut.
Eating cold-water fish and other sources of omega-3 fatty acids may preserve brain health and enhance cognition in middle age, new evidence indicates.
Researchers explored the potential of a nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy-based metabolomic platform to estimate the risks for the onset of several medical conditions.
A new study aimed to analyze whether cod liver oil could prevent serious COVID-19, SARS-CoV-2 infection, or other acute respiratory infections during the winter of 2020-2021.
Researchers explored the association between COVID-19 risk and blood N-3 fatty acid levels.
Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) is an essential nutrient belonging to the omega-3 group of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs). As the human body cannot synthesize PUFAs, dietary supplements containing EPA are required for normal physiological functions. Found abundantly in natural sources like fish, hemp oil, and linseed oil, EPA is known to exhibit anti-inflammatory, neuroprotective, and cardiovascular protective activities.
A recent research paper posted to the medRxiv* preprint server illustrated anti-inflammatory and hypo-metabolic fingerprints in long coronavirus disease (COVID) syndrome (LCS) using pan-omics plasma assessments.
An increase in the concentration of DHA in RBCs is associated with a reduced risk of Alzheimer's disease and all-cause dementia
New research published today in Nutrients shows that people with a higher blood DHA level are 49% less likely to develop Alzheimer's disease vs. those with lower levels, according to the Fatty Acid Research Institute (FARI).
About 3 grams daily of omega-3 fatty acids, consumed in foods or supplements, appears to be the optimal daily dose to help lower blood pressure, according to a research review published today in the Journal of the American Heart Association, an open access, peer-reviewed journal of the American Heart Association.
A new review article published in the Journal of Biotechnology has provided information on various nutraceutical metabolites extracted from algae.
