Top News on Omega-3

In fall 2020, Mayo Clinic Proceedings published a new study, “Effect of Omega-3 Dosage on Cardiovascular Outcomes: An Updated Meta-Analysis and Meta-Regression of Interventional Trials,” which showed a relation between an increase in omega-3 intake and a number of cardiovascular risk reductions. The study found that dosage is the most important factor- studies with higher dosages are more likely to find a positive effect. As co-author cardiologist Carl “Chip” Lavie of the John Ochsner Heart and Vascular Institute and Ochsner Clinical School pointed out, “Considering the relatively low costs and side effect profiles of omega-3 supplementation and the low drug-drug interactions with other standard therapies used in cardiovascular prevention, consumers and physicians should consider the potential benefits of omega-3 (EPA+DHA) supplementation, especially using dosages of 1,000-2,000 mg/day, which are rarely obtained in most Westernized diets, even those including some routine fish consumption” (Source: Nutraceuticals World, Groundbreaking Study Links Omega-3 EPA & DHA Dosage to Positive Cardiovascular Outcomes, 2020).

A low intake of vitamins and minerals is strongly associated with disease risks, so providing your consumers with these supplements can make a large impact on disease control. Although you can get many vitamins through the food you eat, many people don’t eat the necessary food or the correct amount, therefore they become deficient in some aspects of their diet.

Omega-3s are fatty acids that work with immune cells to help the body return back to homeostasis after experiencing cell stress. Cell stress happens when your body is fighting an illness or infection. Omega-3s also enhance the function of immune cells by increasing the number of cells that help fight viruses. They support healthy cell response and thus overall immune health. Omega 3 supplements are commonly taken in capsule form.
