Eric Noreen, et al., Effects of supplemental fish oil on resting metabolic rate, body composition, and salivary cortisol in health adults.J Int Soc Sports Nutr. 2010;7:31.
Objective: To determine the effects of supplemental fish oil (FO) on resting metabolic rate (RMR), body composition, and cortisol production in healthy adults.
Conclusion: Six weeks of supplementation with FO significantly increased lean mass and decreased fat mass. These changes were significantly correlated with a reduction in salivary cortisol following FO treatment.
Thorsdottir I, et al., Randomized trial of weight-loss-diets for young adults varying in fish and fish oil content. Int J Obes (Lond). 2007 Oct;31(10):1560-6.
Objective: To investigate the effect of including seafood and fish oils, as part of an energy-restricted diet, on weight loss in young overweight adults.
Conclusion: In young, overweight men, the inclusion of either lean or fatty fish, or fish oil as part of an energy-restricted diet resulted in approximately 1 kg more weight loss after 4 weeks, than did a similar diet without seafood or supplement of marine origin. The addition of seafood to a nutritionally balanced energy-restricted diet may boost weight loss.
Logan S, et al., Omega-3 fatty acid supplementation for 12 weeks increases resting and exercise metabolic rate in healthy community-dwelling older females. PLoS One. 2015 Dec 17;10(12):e0144828.
Objective: To investigate the effect of dietary fish oil (FO) supplementation for a 12-week period on metabolic and physical health parameters of community-dwelling older female adults.
Conclusion: We have demonstrated that FO supplementation (2 g/d EPA, 1 g/d DHA) for 12 wk in healthy community dwelling older females increased metabolic rate and fat oxidation at rest and during exercise, decreased resting and exercise HR and increased lean mass and physical function.
Itariu BK, et al., Long-chain n-3 PUFAs reduce adipose tissue and systemic inflammation in severely obese nondiabetic patients: a randomized controlled trial. Am J Clin Nutr. 2012 Nov;96(5):1137-49.
Objective: To investigate whether n-3 PUFAs reduce adipose tissue inflammation in severely obese nondiabetic patients.
Conclusion: Treatment with long-chain n-3 PUFAs favorably modulated adipose tissue and systemic inflammation in severely obese nondiabetic patients and improved lipid metabolism. These effects may be beneficial in the long-term treatment of obesity.
Omega-3s Augment Diet and Exercise for Optimal Results
Omega-3s Augment Diet and Exercise for Optimal Results The State of Obesity Report (2017), obesity is associated with more than 100,000 premature deaths per year. Providing patients with a strategy for healthy eating and increased physical activity is unquestionably the first line of defense; yet all too often, long-term compliance is fleeting. Increasing a patient’s intake of EPA and DHA has been shown to support a healthy resting metabolic rate, increase lean body mass, and decrease fat mass.* Supplementing with omega-3 fish oil can be an effective and especially sustainable strategy to help support patients’ weight management needs.

MolP – Omega-3 FA, Inflammation, and Major Depressive Disorder

One hundred fifty-five subjects with Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th Edition (DSM-IV) MDD, a baseline 17-item Hamilton Depression Rating Scale (HAM-D-17) score ⩾15 and baseline biomarker data (interleukin (IL)-1ra, IL-6, high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP), leptin and adiponectin) were randomized between 18 May 2006 and 30 June 2011 to 8 weeks of double-blind treatment with eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)-enriched n-3 1060 mg day-1, docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)-enriched n-3 900 mg day-1 or placebo
BipolarD – Bipolar Benefits with Increase n-3 and Decrease n-6 Dietary PUFA
Source: Omega Research
Omega (n)-3 and n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) are molecular modulators of neurotransmission and inflammation. We hypothesized that plasma concentrations of n-3 PUFAs would be lower and those of n-6 PUFAs higher in subjects with bipolar disorder (BD) compared to healthy controls (HCs), and would correlate with symptom severity in subjects with BD, and that effective treatment would correlate with increased n-3 but lower n-6 PUFA levels. Additionally, we explored clinical correlations and group differences in plasma levels of saturated and monounsaturated fatty acids.
CNSD – Omega-3 FAs, a Safer Intervention for Early-Onset Bipolar Disorder
Source: Omega Research
Bipolar disorder is a chronic and typically recurring illness with significant psychosocial morbidity. Although the aetiological factors that contribute to the onset of mania, and by definition bipolar I disorder, are poorly understood, it most commonly occurs during the adolescent period.
Putative risk factors for developing bipolar disorder include having a first-degree relative with a mood disorder, physical/sexual abuse and other psychosocial stressors, substance use disorders, psychostimulant and antidepressant medication exposure and omega-3 fatty acid deficiency.
Link between ADHD and academic expectations identified by University of Miami researchers
Source: Medical News Today
The education system in the United States has changed dramatically since the 1970′s. We have seen a rise in time spent on homework, a significant increase in the percentage of children enrolled in full day programs, and a rise in the time spent on teaching preschool aged children their numbers and letters. A new study out of the University of Miami suggests a correlation between the prevalence of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and increasing academic demands on young children.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids Studied in Autism
A study epublished in March 2015 reports that omega-3 fatty acid supplementation benefits symptoms in subjects with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report that the prevalence of autism in the U.S. increased by 119.4% from 2000 (1 in 150 births) to 2010 (1 in 68 births). Autism is the fastest-growing developmental disability, increasing by 6% to 15% each year from 2002 to 2010.

Exercising the Mind to Treat Attention Deficits
Source: NY Times
Which will it be – the berries or the chocolate dessert? Homework or the Xbox? Finish that memo, or roam Facebook?
Such quotidian decisions test a mental ability called cognitive control, the capacity to maintain focus on an important choice while ignoring other impulses. Poor planning, wandering attention and trouble inhibiting impulses all signify lapses in cognitive control. Now a growing stream of research suggests that strengthening this mental muscle, usually with exercises in so – called mindfulness, may help children and adults cope with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and its adult equivalent, attention deficit disorder.

As Indian waistlines expand, the Ministry of Health has decided to tackle the problem from the top and pay for some or all of the cost for weight-loss surgery for high-ranking government officials.
Tackling abdominal obesity with exercise and nutrition
Source: Medical News Today
Lifestyle programs focused on high-intensity interval training combined with nutritional counselling on the Mediterranean diet have shown dramatic results for improving the heart health of people with abdominal obesity, finds a study released at the Canadian Cardiovascular Congress.
“Each of these lifestyle interventions alone is known to have an impact, but no one has studied them together in a longer term,” says Dr. Mathieu Gayda, one of the study’s authors and an exercise physiologist at the Montreal Heart Institute. “Our results show that the combination of the two interventions supersized the benefits to heart health.”
