Great HealthWorks, Inc., Makers of Omega XL, Reports University of Kansas Medical Center Study: Omega-3s Support Healthier Pregnancies and Birth Weight (amazon) (shopzilla)

(PRWEB) May 13, 2013

Due to widespread dietary deficiencies of essential omega-3 fatty acids, doctors typically recommend that pregnant women add an Omega-3 supplement to their pre and postnatal care regimen. Recent research, conducted at the University of Kansas Medical Center and published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, suggests supplementing pregnant mothers with omega-3 fatty acid, such as found in Omega XL, can lead to longer gestations and healthier birth weights.

The Kansans City researchers designed a double-blind, randomized placebo controlled trial – long considered the gold standard in clinical research that looked at a group of 350 pregnant women, from the 20th week of gestation to birth, who were given either 600 mg of omega-3 DHA daily, or a placebo. Blood was analyzed for red blood cell phospholipid DHA upon enrolment in the study and at birth, from both mom as well as from the umbilical cord.

The blood samples from the group supplemented with DHA, compared to the placebo group, registered higher levels of phospholipid DHA both maternally and at the umbilical cord. An analysis of the pregnancies showed that the DHA group experienced longer gestation duration, greater birth weight and infant size (measured in length and head circumference) than the placebo group. In addition, the DHA group experienced fewer births before 34 weeks, and shorter hospital stays for infants born preterm than did the placebo group.

This study demonstrated that 600mg per day of Omega-3 fatty acid DHA was safe and helped to promote healthy fetal development, overall pregnancy wellness and a reduction in preterm births. The researchers stated as to the significance of the findings: a reduction in early preterm and very-low birth weight could be important clinical and public health outcomes of DHA supplementation.

These findings come on the heels of prior prenatal and pediatric research which suggests that omega-3 supplementation promotes neurological and intellectual development, supports the brain and eyes, increases cognitive function, and enhances visual learning and memory in infants and young children.

Omega XL is one of only two Omega 3 supplements sold in the world that contains the patented stabilized marine lipid extract PCSO-524 derived only from the New Zealand green-lipped mussel, with 30 healthy fatty acids including DHA and EPA. Sold in other parts of the world under its sister brand name Lyprinol, Omega XL is manufactured exclusively by Great HealthWorks Inc., and is the most widely available omega-3 fish oil supplement containing the potent PCSO-524 marine lipid extract.

    Omega XL Reports New Independent Study: Omega-3s Can Boost Childrens IQ (amazon) (shopzilla)

    Hollywood, FL (PRWEB) March 17, 2013

    A research team from New York University analyzed the best available studies involving samples of children, from birth to kindergarten, from their newly assembled Database of Raising Intelligence. Their findings, published in Perspectives on Psychological Science, suggest omega-3 supplementation, such as with Omega XL, can boost a childs IQ score.

    The team analyzed the effects of several nutritional supplements given to expecting mothers, new mothers, and their children in the hopes of raising the childrens intelligence. They found that supplementing either a pregnant mother or supplementing infant formula with omega-3 fatty acids raises a young childs IQ by more than 3.5 points. The researchers noted that the other supplements investigated, such as iron, thiamine, ascorbic acid and B vitamins, had absolutely no effect on IQ. Children given omega-3 supplements were also enrolled in a quality preschool and engaged in activities such as interactive reading. This combination, the researchers suggest,

    can help in raising a child’s intelligence quotient.

    The likely mechanism behind the beneficial effects of omega-3 supplementation lies in the fact that these essential fatty acids, specifically DHA and EPA, are essential for – among other vital process – nerve and brain cell development, however the body cannot produce them on its own. Healthy levels of DHA and EPA must come from diet, supplementation or both. Published literature indicates a sustained deficiency of omega-3 DHA and EPA can contribute to numerous health issues.

      Omega XL Reports New Independent Study: Omega-3s Improve Acne Severity In Individuals With Moderate To Severe Acne (amazon) (shopzilla)

      Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) December 17, 2012

      Researchers from California State Polytechnic University in Pomona, California, recently looked at the effects of omega-3 fatty acids, such as found in [Omega XL, on healthy males ages 1840 with mild to severe acne (acne vulgaris). The objective of the study was to detect the isolated effects of supplemental omega-3 fatty acids on the severity of inflammatory acne in young healthy males.

      Statistical data suggests that the overall acne occurrence rate appears to be rising in Westernized nations, while acne is a rare condition in non-Westernized societies with higher ratios of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids. Scientists believe that the lower omega-3 content of the western diet is an important dietary cause of inflammation. Despite demonstrating remarkable anti-inflammatory properties in the scientific literature, very few human studies have examined the clinical effects of supplemental omega-3 fatty acids on reducing inflammation in acne patients.

      To see if omega-3 supplementation could improve the severity of inflammatory acne, the Cal State researchers gave participants three omega-3 capsules daily for 12 weeks that contained a total of 930 mg EPA, 720 mg DHA, and 174 mg DPA per 3 capsules. Participants continued their usual diets, but were instructed to not consume large amounts of additional omega-3 rich foods.

      At the end of 12 weeks, the researchers noted some promising evidence that omega-3 supplementation is associated with an improvement in overall acne severity, especially for individuals with moderate and severe acne.
