Omega-3's: A place in performance sport?
This webinar aims to critically evaluate the scientific literature that examines the role of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3PUFA) in improving athlete performance. Specifically, the contexts of promoting muscle adaptation, energy metabolism, muscle recovery and injury prevention (e.g. muscle loss during immobilisation, or concussion) will be discussed. In brief, this webinar argues that n-3PUFA ingestion may have benefits in promoting recovery from muscle damaging exercise and improving endurance capacity by reducing the oxygen cost of exercise. Although there is insufficient evidence to support the claim tha...

New Studies Give Mixed Results About Taking Fish Oil and Vitamin D
(CHICAGO) — Taking fish oil or vitamin D? Big studies give long-awaited answers on who does and does not benefit from these popular nutrients. Fish oil taken by healthy people, at a dose found in many supplements, showed no clear ability to lower heart or cancer risks. Same for vitamin D. But higher amounts of a purified, prescription fish oil slashed heart problems and heart-related deaths among people with high triglycerides, a type of fat in the blood, and other risks for heart disease. Doctors cheered the results and said they could suggest a new treatment option for hundreds of thousands of patients like these. ...

Eating Fish May Help Keep You Healthy Into Old Age, Study Says
Certain fats found in seafood may help keep you healthy for years to come, according to a new study published in the BMJ. Higher blood levels of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids — healthy fats found in foods such as fish, nuts, leafy greens and vegetable and flaxseed oils — were associated with a greater chance of healthy aging, according to the observational research. Omega-3s found in seafood seemed to have the strongest effect, says study co-author Heidi Lai, a postdoctoral fellow at Tufts’ Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy. “There had been studies that looked at the relationship...

Are Omega-3s Good for Your Brain?
Omega-3 is easily the most popular supplement in America. Roughly 8% of adults—or about 19 million people—take some kind of omega-3 fatty acid supplement, according to the latest figures from the National Institutes of Health. There’s a reason fish oil capsules and other omega-3 supplements are so popular. “Omega-3 fatty acids are involved in many different fundamental [brain] processes,” says Simon Dyall, a principal academic and head of nutrition at Bournemouth University in the UK. Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids—namely EPA and DHA—and their metabolites influence gene expres...
