Omega-3 Fatty Acids Alleviate Diabetes Inflammation
Omega-3 Fatty Acids Alleviate Diabetes Inflammation – A study of 84 men 45 to 84 years old with at least a two year history of Type 2 diabetes to determine the efficacy of omega-3 on inflammation for Type 2 diabetes. The omega-3 subjects were given just under three grams daily of omega-3 incorporating DHA and EPA, the types of fatty acids from animal sources.
The study in Tehran, Iran at the Department of Nutrition and Biochemistry, School of Public Health. The study lasted only eight weeks to determine the effects of short-term omega-3 intake.
The subjects who were given placebos of sunflower oil capsules had no changes in their inflammatory markers from serum testing, while those who did take the strong omega-3 doses showed lowered inflammatory markers.
The research concluded: “Findings indicate that omega-3 fatty acid supplements may alleviate inflammation caused by Type 2 diabetes mellitus.”
Two different incidents of young men in Virginia and West Virginia, one in his mid-20s the other in his late teens, suffering from extreme brain damages were brought out of comas and rapidly recovered thanks to massive omega-3 dosing. They both came out of their comas and rapidly improved toward total recovery.
Dr. Dwight Lundell, a cardiologist with 30 years experience, proclaims the source of heart problems is not cholesterol or fats in general, but arterial inflammation from processed oils and other factors. He advises consuming healthy fats high in omega-3.
Vegetable omega-3 sources, such as flax, olive oil, and other sources, contain ALA (alpha-linoleic acid), which has to be converted by the body into the more beneficial forms of DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid). But not everyone who is in poor health or older can make that conversion.
The animal omega-3 fats (fish, fish oils, grass fed livestock meats), contain already converted DHA and EPA to help deliver immediate, stronger results.
Omega-3 fatty acids comprise most nerve and brain tissue. There are many other omega-3 benefits, including emotional stability, heart health, skin health, blood sugar stability, improved memory, and overall anti-aging.
Fish oil high in EPA and DHA is a mainstay of our supplement regimen. We think the evidence from research is sufficiently strong to make it part of our daily routine. If it helps with inflammation, that is yet another benefit that can be helpful for those with diabetes.
Until #CuringType1Diabetes is a reality within our reach, put your body in a position of strength to #MasterDiabetes the healthiest way possible. Lifestyle innovations as a priority over drug therapies may be the solution. Poor health feeds poor health in a vicious cycle, or negative feedback loop that is increasingly difficult to break the longer it continues.
