Dear Reader,

We hope you have been well and are staying safe during these times. We wanted to share some research we have found regarding Omega 3’s and DNA preservation. A group of Brazilian researchers conducted a study in the Journal of Food & Function on the topic of Omega 3’s and DNA damage. They “found that higher levels of EPA and DHA were associated with lower levels of DNA damage” (Schultz, 2020).  This link is a proactive connection between Omega 3’s found in fish oil and DNA protection. In addition this factor helps reduce the development of future diseases (Barros, et. al. 2020).

ALP Life Sciences is dedicated to providing you with current research on the topic of Omega 3’s and their impact on your health. We want to encourage you to keep up your supplementation with ALP High-3 to reduce your risk of chronic inflammatory diseases including damage to your DNA. 

Sincerely,

Robert A. Barker, MD

Brazilian study finds higher omega-3’s equate to less DNA damage

A study done in Brazilian adolescents has shown that higher levels of omega-3’s are associated with a lower incidence of DNA damage.

August 2020 – Noncommunicable Diseases

 

 

 
The ALP Newsletter
 

Dear Reader,

 

We hope you are doing well and staying safe during these times.

This month we are focusing on Noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) (e.g. Parkinson’s disease, autoimmune diseases, strokes, and most heart diseases, and more). The modern western type diet is characterized by foods high on the glycemic index and unhealthy fats (saturated and trans fats) not containing omega 3’s (Chaves, Singh, Khan, Wilczynska, Takahashi, 2018). The intake of this style of diet is associated with a higher risk of chronic diseases and non-communicable diseases. The omega 6/3 ratio associated with this type of diet ranges any where from 20-50 omega 6’s to 1 omega 3. The results of this ratio have devastating impacts on the human body. However, “It is possible that proinflammatory diets and inflammation in the tissue are the main issues for development of NCDs. New approaches including Mediterranean- type diets rich in fruits, vegetables, nuts, canola oil, olive oil characterized with low ω-6/ω-3 ratio in the diet, may modulate inflammation and may be protective for body tissues” (Chaves, Singh, Khan, Wilczynska, Takahashi, 2018).

Therefore, we recommend you choose diet rich in Omega 3’s and continue your supplementation with ALP High-3 to reduce your risk of noncommunicable diseases.

Stay safe and stay healthy.

 

Sincerely,

Robert A. Barker, MD

Noncommunicable Diseases
 
The Western-type diet is generally proatherogenic characterized with energy dense, refined, ready-prepared foods with a high glycemic index and unhealthy lipids poor in ω-3 fatty acids, phytochemicals, and fiber. A high omega-6/omega-3 ratio, as found in today’s Western diets, promotes the risk of NCDs

Cardiovascular Diseases
 
 In the secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease, a ratio of 4/1 was associated with a 70% decrease in total mortality. A ratio of 2.5/1 reduced rectal cell proliferation in patients with colorectal cancer, whereas a ratio of 4/1 with the same amount of omega-3 PUFA had no effect.

Cognitive Function in Bees
 

Bees fed an omega-6:3 ratio of 1, with 4% total lipid concentration achieved the best performance. Our results with honey bees are consistent with those found in mammals. Best cognitive performance is achieved by a diet that is sufficiently rich in essential fatty acids, but as long as the omega-6:3 ratio is not high.
