Pain, arthritis, and inflammation reduced

Fish Oils May Prevent SUDDEN CARDIAC DEATH – NEJM

Omega3sSuddenCardiacDeath

Do you need an oil change? The “Omega 3 Index” and the risk of dying of a sudden heart attack.

Sudden cardiac death, or dying suddenly from a heart attack is responsible for about half of all deaths associated with coronary heart disease(1).The chart below summarizes relative risk of sudden cardiac death associated with traditional heart disease risk factors. For each factor, the bar on the left represents the quartile at highest risk, and is set at a relative risk of 1.0. The bar on the right represents the quartile with the lowest relative risk. Those with the highest levels of Omega-3 Index have a 90% reduction in risk of sudden cardiac death compared relative to those with the lowest Omega-3 Index. This predictive value was far greater than that associated with C-reactive protein (a 65% reduction in risk with the lowest CRP) or total cholesterol levels (a 35% reduction in risk with the lowest cholesterol) (2).

In this study, after controlling for age and smoking status, only two risk factors demonstrated significant relations with risk for sudden cardiac death, the Omega-3 Index and CRP (3).

Helpful After Major Heart Surgery – Less Atrial Fibrillation

Major Study: Reduction of Death Up to 45% After a Heart Attack

In 1999, theGISSI-Prevenzione Investigators reported inthe Lancet, the results of major clinical study in 11,324 patients with a recent myocardial infarction. Treatment 1 gram per day of OMEGA-3 fatty acids reduced the occurrence of death, cardiovascular death and sudden cardiac death by 20%, 30% and 45% respectively.These beneficial effects were seen already from three months onwards.

The Major Arteries to the Brain Changed Structure to a Younger Structure – Carotid Artery Increase in Size and the Brain Received BETTER BLOOD FLOW

In the March 2007 edition of the journal Atherosclerosis, 81 Japanese men with unhealthy blood sugar levels were randomly assigned to receive 1800mg daily of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) with the other half being a control group. The thickness of the carotid arteries and certain measures of blood flow were measured before and after supplementation. This went on for approximately two years. A total of 60 patients (30 in the EPA group and 30 in the control group) completed the study. Those given the EPA had a statistically significant decrease in the thickness of the carotid arteries along with improvement in blood flow. The authors indicated that this was the first demonstration that administration of purified EPA improves the thickness of carotid arteries along with improving blood flow in patients with unhealthy blood sugar levels.

Fish Oils Reduced Bad Fats (Triglycerides – which are the fats that cause heart disease in WOMEN) by 45%

In another study published in the American Journal of Health System Pharmacy March 2007, patients with high triglycerides and poor coronary artery health were given 4 grams a day of a combination of EPA and DHA along with some monounsaturated fatty acids. Those patients with very unhealthy triglyceride levels (above 500mg/dl)

reduced their triglycerides on average 45% and their VLDL cholesterol by more than 50%

VLDL is a bad type of cholesterol and elevated triglycerides can also be deleterious for cardiovascular health.

Another Study: 18,000 People – Improved Heart Function and Fewer Heart Attacks

Another study on the benefits of EPA was published inThe Lancet in March 2007. This study involved over 18,000 patients with unhealthy cholesterol levels. The patients were randomly assigned to receive either 1,800 mg a day of EPA with a statin drug or a statin drug alone. The trial went on for a total of five years. It was found at the end of the study those patients in the E-EPA group had superior cardiovascular function.
Non-fatal coronary events were also significantly reduced in the E-EPA group. The authors concluded that EPA is a promising treatment for prevention of major coronary events, especially non-fatal coronary events.

A blood test can determine if you are eating enough OMEGA-3 fish oils. Remember your body DOES NOT MAKE O-3s. YOU MUST EAT 1-5 grams a day!

Healthier Brain – Better Mood – The Brain Should Have a Very High Concentration of O3s

Omega-3 fatty acids are thought by some to have membrane-enhancing capabilities in brain cells. One medical explanation is that O3 fatty acids play a role in the fortification of the myelin sheaths. Not coincidentally, O3 fatty acids comprise approximately eight percent of the average human brain.

For the brain, “DHA is structure, EPA is function.”

A benefit of O3 fatty acids is helping the brain to repair damage by promoting neuronal growth. In a 6-month study involving people with schizophrenia and Huntington’s disease who were treated with EPA or a placebo, the placebo group had clearly lost cerebral tissue, while the patients given the supplements had a significant increase of grey and white matter.

In the prefrontal cortex(PFC) of the brain, low brain O3 fatty acids are thought to lower the dopaminergic neurotransmission in this brain area, possibly contributing to the negative and neurocognitive symptoms in schizophrenia. This reduction in dopamine system function in the PFC may lead to an overactivity in dopaminergic function in the limbic system of the brain which is suppressively controlled by the PFC dopamine system, causing the positive symptoms of schizophrenia. This is called the O3 polyunsaturated fatty acid/dopamine hypothesis of schizophrenia (Ohara, 2007). This mechanism may explain why

Omega-3 supplementation shows effects against both positive, negative and neurocognitive symptoms in schizophrenia.

Improved brain function: less depression, and better moods.

Another meta-analysis published in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry in 2007, based on 10 clinical trials, found that Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids

significantly improved depression in patients with both unipolar and bipolar disorder.

Non-Cardiac Health Risks

In a letter published October 31, 2000, the United States Food and Drug Administration Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition, Office of Nutritional Products, Labeling, and Dietary Supplements noted that known or suspected risks of EPA and DHA O3 fatty acids may include the possibility of:

  • Increased bleeding if overused (normally over 3 grams per day) by a patient who is also taking aspirin or warfarin. However, this is disputed.
  • Hemorrhagic stroke (only in case of very large doses)
  • Reduced glycemic control among diabetics in the FDA 1991-1993 Scientific Review.

Subsequent advice from the FDA and national counterparts have permitted health claims associated with heart health.
