Kings College London Research Has Found an Association Between Diet and Depression / Anxiety in Elderly, Says Nutri-Med Logic Corp. (amazon) (shopzilla)

Miami, Florida (PRWEB) November 29, 2011

Nutri-Med Logic Corp: This newly published study by King’s College London establishes a more conclusive role for Essential Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids in Depression and Anxiety Disorders, from young to old.

The study by the Kings College London states Plasma linoleic acid (Omega-6) levels were found to have a negative linear relationship with depressive symptoms. (Negative association denotes factors that lead to various forms of mental disorder.)

The study, which included 130 participants, aged 60 to 86 years of age, from outpatient psychiatric services of four hospitals, concluded that the higher levels of Omega-6 are associated with higher residual Depression and Anxiety.

The results of another recent study by National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) suggested that a daily diet of Omega3 fatty acids should be incorporated for the young and healthy individuals, since it has reduced their symptoms of anxiety.

According to the NCCAM study, a 12 week, double-blind study that included 68 healthy young medical students (38 men, 30 women), not only suggested that omega3 fatty acids reduced the symptoms of Anxiety, and consistent with the previous studies of NCCAM, Omega-3 diet was suggested for reducing depressive symptoms in “clinically” depressed young subjects.

Moreover, another recent study by National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism of National Institutes of Health and Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHA) recommended that 2 grams of omega-3 fatty acids per day to reduce depression and anxiety scores among active service members with recurrent self-harm tendency.

Omega-3 and Omega-6 are classified as Essential Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids, both of which are only obtained through diet and they form an important part of all cellular membranes. Human body is incapable of producing either Omega-3 or Omega-6 and thus depends on the diet for their supply.

Omega-6 is found in most food but Omega-3 can only be attained from leafy green vegetables and cold-water fishes. Due to its scarcity in the diet, the deficiency of Omega-3 is substituted with readily available Omega-6, which explains the association between the higher residual depression / anxiety and the higher levels of Omega-6, as suggested by the King’s College study.

The higher levels of Omega-6 can only be reduced through higher dietary intake of Omega-3.

Higher intake of Omega-3, not only would reduce the high levels of Omega-6, determined to be the key focus of elderly depression and anxiety in the Kings College London study, but consistent with the various recent studies of NIH, higher intake of Omega-3 reduces the anxiety symptoms for the younger population.

In conclusion, Nutri-Med Logic Corp (http://www.nutrimedlogic.com) agrees with the study published by The Kings College London but adds that higher levels of Omega-6 can only denote deficiency of Omega-3 in the diet. Nutri-Med Logic Corp, also, adds, that higher intake of Omega-3 not only would reduce the higher levels of Omega-6, beneficial for the elderly with Depression and Anxiety, but also beneficial for the young suffering from Anxiety Disorder due to stress.

    Bel Marra Health Reports on a New Study: Elderly Population is Living Longer, But Getting Sicker Than Previous Years (amazon) (shopzilla)


    Toronto, ON (PRWEB) March 01, 2013

    Bel Marra Health, who offers high-quality, specially formulated vitamins and nutritional supplements, is reporting on a new research that shows the elderly population is living longer than before, but quality of life appears to be reduced.

    As Bel Marra Health reports in its article (http://www.belmarrahealth.com/anti-aging/people-now-live-longer-and-sicker-lives/) while senior citizens are living longer than ever they also have a whole slew of other concerns studies say, and that is that because longevity aside, elderly folks are also a whole lot sicker than before.

    The numbers are an increase over previous years, and were attributed to the rise of three particular conditions, diabetes, hypertension and cancer. People could be living longer because of medical advancements surrounding these cases, or living so long that there is higher numbers of the conditions being seen. So professionals are saying there could be multiple factors at play.

    It appears that the women are really winning the longevity war these days because in most cases they have had a longer life expectancy. Americans have traditionally had a much shorter life expectancy that other countries, but for several decades the gap has been getting a bit wider. And as time goes on it is anticipated that it could become even bigger. But if people that are living longer, are just getting sicker, are the efforts directed in the wrong way.

    The study took aim at how poorly the United States did in a number of different areas of longevity. As a matter of fact, the US does poorly in a whopping 9 areas. When it comes to infant mortality the numbers are concerning. Low birth weight babies continue to be a concern, and the USA also has the highest infant mortality rates.

    As the Bel Marra Health article reads, another area that does poorly in the USA is when it comes to areas outside of chronic health conditions. Deaths from injuries and homicides are at an all time high. Alcohol and drug abuse, sexually transmitted diseases and high pregnancy rates are also high. So are incidences of HIV and drunk driving to boot.

    If there was 17 developed countries that were being looked at for the study, the United States fell in the upper percentile for almost all categories. The death rate from heart disease is actually the second highest of all the 17 countries looked at. Older people also say that they consider themselves to be less mobile than in many of the other countries.
