Studies in Anxiety and Depression Point to Age-Associated Benefits of Omega-3 (amazon) (shopzilla)

Miami, Florida (PRWEB) March 20, 2012

A newly published study by the School of Medicine, Adelaide University, Adelaide, Australia, suggests inflammatory markers, more specifically, the marker PAI-1 is associated with remitted depression but not with the symptom of anxiety in the older population. Nutri-Med Logic Corp adds that PAI-1 is also an indicator of mental stress, which is the precursor to anxiety in the younger population, as well as hypertension and coronary artery disease in the older population.

As to PAI-1 and cardiovascular risk, DR. John Laragh, a Professor of Medicine in Cardiothoracic Surgery and Director of the Cardiovascular Center at The New York Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Cornell Medical Center, more than three decades ago discovered the relationship between stress system and malignant hypertension, in which the bodys ability to dissolve clots is inhibited by PAI-1.

Later in time, studies by Veterans Administration Medical Center, Gainesville, concluded that supplementation of Omega-3, in three weeks, resulted in a decrease of PAI-1 levels by 21 +/- 5% and such reduction in PAI-1 also correlated with a reduction in blood triglycerides (American Heart Journal. 1988 Nov; 116(5 Pt 1):1201-6.)

As to PAI-1 and mental stress, overwhelming number of studies have shown a strong correlation between higher levels of stress and increased levels of PAI-1. In particular, blood samples taken before and after a battery of psychological questionnaires, to create mental stress, revealed a strong relationship between mental stress and PAI-1, in which there was a decrease in certain tissue molecules that become inactivated due to an increase in PAI-1 (A decrease in tPA-PAI-1 complex). Eur J Appl Physiol. 2000 Nov;83(4 -5):344-8.

The dietary intervention of Omega-3 in reducing stress has been well studied, most notably in a recent study by National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism of National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHA), which has sought to incorporate Omega-3 into the diet of the U.S. military, especially those in deployment situation.

Additionally, The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) of The National Institutes of Health (NIH) also concluded, in a recent report, that an anti-inflammatory diet consisting of Omega-3 reduced the symptoms of Anxiety in the young and healthy subjects, not yet diagnosed with the disorder.

In conclusion, Nutri-Med Logic Corp states that the findings of overwhelming number of studies relating to PAI-1, mental stress, anxiety and hypertension highlight the importance of Omega-3 dietary intervention, from young to old. Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids not only offer substantial benefits for the cardiovascular health of the older population but also confer beneficial or protective properties for reducing anxiety in young adults, even those not yet diagnosed with the disorder.

The diverse benefits of Omega-3 in cardiovascular or nervous system arises from two important polyunsaturated fatty acids: EPA Omega-3 fatty acids with broad anti-inflammatory application in cardiovascular system and DHA Omega-3 fatty acids with broad anti-inflammatory and protective application in the brain and nervous system. Low levels of DHA Omega-3 fatty acids have also been associated with higher levels of mental stress and aggression.

    Diet May Play a Key Role, as a Turning Point, in Most Alzheimers Cases (amazon) (shopzilla)

    Miami, FL (PRWEB) April 02, 2012

    A new report by University of Texas at Austin, Austin, TX, states that compelling evidence links Alzheimer to multifactorial risk disorder resulting in low blood circulation to brain (chronic brain hypo-perfusion) during advanced aging. Nutri-Med Logic Corp adds that while the factors mentioned in this report, more specifically, micro-nutrients, trace metals, lipids and pro-oxidants are all associated with the diet but overwhelming number of studies have also pointed to excess pro-inflammatory nutrients, as a key and contributing factor in the development and progression of this diseases.

    The study by the University of Texas states that two decades of research and over 73,000 research papers has not resulted in a significant progress as to why people get Alzheimer and what could be done to avoid it. Nutri-Med Logic Corp adds that The University of Texas correctly attempts to shift the focus from how to treat the symptoms to how to avoid the key causes of the Sporadic Alzheimer.

    According to National Alzheimers Council, Sporadic Alzheimer constitutes 90-95% of Alzheimers cases.

    The report blames, in part, micro-nutrients, trace metals, lipids and pro-oxidants as being involved in the development of oxidative stress and neuro-degeneration, in the presence of low blood flow to the brain, seen in Sporadic Alzheimer.

    Department of Physiological Science, University of California at Los Angeles has studied the relationship between a diet high in saturated fat (lipids) and the decrease in the levels of Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF), which suggests a high-fat diet affects cognitive function.

    According to the University of Miami, BDNF is essential for many functions such as neuronal growth and maturation. University of Miami further states that boosting BDNF is thought to be beneficial in several human disorders, including Alzheimers disease. (Nature Biotechnology, March 25, 2012.)

    Studies have successfully incorporated the use of anti-oxidants as a mean to combat the drop in BDNF levels, due to oxidative stress caused by the high-fat diet. (Eur J Neurosci. 2004 Apr;19(7):1699-707.)

    Attempts to increase the BNDF levels either through medication, gene therapy or simply through diet (anti-oxidants) coincides with the finding of the University of Texas, which points to lipids (fat) and pro-oxidant (causing oxidative stress) as two of the key factors.

    While the high-fat diet is a matter of choice, factors such as metals and pro-oxidants are mainly counteracted by an internal antioxidant called Glutathione, which its levels drops by age. None-the-less, Glutathione can be increased through diet, more specifically through supplementation of a nutrient called R-Alpha Lipoic.

    Additionally, several studies have determined that the structure within the neuronal cell membrane bilayer, more specifically Omega-3 (anti-inflammatory) / Omega-6 (Pro-inflammatory) ratio, is associated to detrimental or beneficial effects in Alzheimers.

    In animal studies, Omega-6 (abundant in red meat) resulted in significantly higher secretion of Abeta-40 and Abeta-42 proteins (both implicated in Alzheimers) compared to Omega-3 diet and that an early-onset of Alzheimer’s has corroborated with the in-vitro findings that lower levels of Abeta in the brain were associated with low fat-diet enriched in Omega-3. J. of Biol. Chem. 2010 Oct 22. (Epub).

    In conclusion, Nutri-Med Logic Corp, agreeing with University of Texas study, adds that in addition to the nutritional factors mentioned in the study, pro-inflammatory nutrients also play a key and fundamental role in the development and the progression of the Alzheimers.

    Nutri-Med Logic Corp is the producer of the Natural, Balanced, Deodorized, Concentrated & Pharmaceutical Grade Omega-3. Omega-3 is the most effective anti-inflammatory nutrient.
