Omega-3 fatty acids for the treatment of dementia
Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (omega-3 PUFAs) from fish and plant sources are commonly considered as a promising non-medical alternative to improve brain functions and slow down the progression of dementia. This assumption is mostly based on findings of preclinical studies and epidemiological research. Resulting explanatory models aim at the role omega-3 PUFAs play in the development and integrity of the brain's neurons, their protective antioxidative effect on cell membranes and potential neurochemical mechanisms directly related to Alzheimer-specific pathology. Epidemiological research also found evidence of malnut...

Can Oxygen Therapy Bring Dead Brain Cells Back To Life?
During my Palm Beach Anti-Aging Summit in October, I’m hosting some of the world’s leading authorities on oxygen therapy. The Summit coincides with the grand opening of my 17,000-sq.-ft. Sears Institute for Anti-Aging Medicine, where I’m unveiling a specially-designed room that houses my first hyperbaric oxygen chamber. I hope you’ll be there, as you’ll discover the newest applications and breakthroughs in this growing field. You see, when oxygen is pressurized — like it is when you’re inside the chamber — you can treat more than just chronic disease. Truth is, hyperbaric ox...

Supplements not associated with reduced risk of cardiovascular disease in elderly
Daily dietary supplements of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (also found in fish) or lutein and zeaxanthin (nutrients found in green leafy vegetables) were not associated with reduced risk for cardiovascular disease (CVD) in elderly patients with the eye disease age-related macular degeneration. Diet studies have suggested that increased intake of fish, a source of omega (ω)-3 fatty acids, can reduce rates of cardiac death, death from all other causes and heart attack.

Studies Provide Little Support For Guidelines On Dietary Fats And Supplements
The precise cardiovascular effect of dietary fats and supplements has been the subject of heated controversy. Although there is no strong supporting evidence from clinical trials, current guidelines tend to discourage or minimize the role of saturated fats and trans fats and to encourage the intake of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids. Two new studies published today help clarify some of the issues. Both studies demonstrate the shaky underpinnings of the guidelines but are unlikely to provide firm support for a new perspective on these issues. (Source: Forbes.com Healthcare News)
