Investigation in Metabolic Syndrome and Brain Points to Dietary Intervention of Omega-3 (amazon) (shopzilla)

Miami, Florida (PRWEB) April 11, 2012

A newly published study in the Journal of Physiology states that, in animal study, a diet high in fructose but low in Omega-3 fatty acids results in disturbance in the brain energy homeostasis, decrease in the level of a biological molecule (Sir2, responsible for cellular longevity) and a biological process (AMPK, associated with insulin resistance and diabetes). Nutri-Med Logic Corp, agreeing with this study, adds that while supplementation of Omega-3 improves both aforesaid, credible evidence suggests that levels of Sir2 and the activation of AMPK would be further increased via supplementation of another important nutrient, R-Alpha Lipoic.

High (concentrated) fructose is found in many candy bars and soft drinks. Data from 1909 to 1997 relating to nutritional consumption of concentrated fructose (corn syrup) was examined and a significant correlation was found between concentrated fructose and metabolic disturbances (dyslipidemia), suggesting that high dietary intake of fructose is an important causative factor in the development of the metabolic syndrome.

This recent study examined the effects of Metabolic Syndrome (high-fructose die) and brain energy homeostasis, taking into account a diet deficient Omega-3, as a potential causative factor. According to this study, when animal were fed Omega-3 there was an increase in an important biological molecule and a biological process. Those being Sir2, a highly investigated protein (proposed to prolong cellular longevity) and the activation of AMPK, a process that plays a key and fundamental role in cellular energy homeostasis and a target of many anti-diabetic agents.

While these findings expand the beneficial properties of Omega-3, Nutri-Med Logic Corp adds that the relationship between another important nutrient, R-Alpha Lipoic (Lipoic Acid) and SIRT-1, mammaline equivalent of SIRT2, was recently discovered by the University of Navarra, Pamplona, Spain, investigation cellular energy (mitochondria) in fatty liver disease. Obesity (Silver Spring). 2012 Feb 13.

The study by the University of Navarra found that Lipoic Acid stimulated SIRT-1 and increased the production of a potent anti-oxidant, ManSOD, by 60.6%.

ManSOD adjusts and/or maintains the proper level of free radical as well as offering metabolic homeostatic poise. (2)

Additionally, overwhelming number of studies have suggested (PubMed, Keyword: Lipoic Acid AMPK; most recent Diabetologia. 2012 Mar 30) that Alpha Lipoic Acid induces an improvement of insulin sensitivity through activation of AMPK, as well as reducing triglyceride accumulation in skeletal muscle.

In conclusion, Nutri-Med Logic Corp, agreeing with this recent study, adds that while dietary intervention of Omega-3 offers valuable health benefits in brain energy homeostasis and metabolic syndrome, credible evidence suggests addition of R-Alpha Lipoic would amplify the results.
