Maternal intake of choline, an essential brain nutrient for mother and developing child, significantly increases DHA status, more than supplementing with DHA by itself, says a new study from Cornell University.
A three-year double-blind randomized controlled trial with over 2,000 participants showed that omega-3 supplements may have an impact on the rate of falls in older people, the first time such a result has been reported.
Fortifying ready-to-eat therapeutic foods with DHA-rich fish oil may significantly improve brain development in malnourished infants and children, says a triple-blind, randomized, controlled clinical feeding trial.
Women taking 1,000 mg of docosohexanoic acid (DHA) daily in the last half of pregnancy had a lower rate of early preterm birth than women taking the standard 200 mg dose, according to a new study involving over 1,000 women.
William Harris, PhD, has been researching fatty acids for over 40 years. To date, he has published more than 300 papers on these nutrients. And recently, he has been ranked in the top 2% of scientists worldwide.
A novel finding connecting omega-3 levels to protection from cellular damage in the brain caused by fine particulates that might be inhaled adds a new wrinkle in the story of the benefits of these fatty acids, says one of the paper's authors.
96% of the globe may have insufficient access by 2100
Warming oceans may deliver a crushing blow to the production of DHA omega-3 by algae, which would ripple up the food chain and slash the global availability of this critical nutrient by 2100, says a scientific paper. But could rapid advances in plant...
With the volume of omega-3 science tripling in 10 years, the world’s leading omega-3 trade group is working with international regulators to have that research reflected in authorised claims – especially in the EU and the US.
DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is the critical omega-3 fatty acid in the brain and research backs its ability to boost brain function. But can it slow the onset of Alzheimer’s Disease and help protect sportspeople against concussion?
The Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3 (GOED) sent a last-minute letter to member states ahead of yesterday’s European Commission meeting for brain health claims for omega-3 forms, ALA and DHA.
The quality of research backing omega-3s such as DHA and EPA has had vindicated with the fatty acids receiving more positive health claim opinions than any other nutrient in Europe’s tough new health claims regime. Only vitamins and minerals have performed...
Most European consumers identify omega-3 as essentially healthy, but there is a “significant knowledge shortcoming” about specific health benefits, Datamonitor tells NutraIngredients as part of a special series revealing insights from market analysts.
