What's Hot

Higher dietary antioxidant capacity associated with lower cardiovascular disease indicators

What's Hot

 

 

In an article published online on January 4, 2013 in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers from the University of Connecticut report an association between improved dietary antioxidant capacity and reductions in plasma homocysteine and C-reactive protein (CRP), both of which are markers of increased cardiovascular disease risk.

Health Concern

Chronic inflammation

Of the ten leading causes of mortality in the United States, chronic, low-level inflammation contributes to the pathogenesis of at least seven. These include heart disease, cancer, chronic lower respiratory disease, stroke, Alzheimer's disease, diabetes, and nephritis (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 2011; Bastard et al. 2006; Cao 2011, Jha et al. 2009; Ferrucci et al. 2010; Glorieux et al. 2009; Kundu et al. 2008; Murphy 2012; Singh et al. 2011).

C-reactive protein (CRP) is an acute-phase protein, one of several proteins rapidly produced by the liver during an inflammatory response. Its primary goal in acute inflammation is to coat damaged cells to make them easier to recognize by other immune cells (Meyer 2010). CRP elevation above basal levels is not diagnostic on its own, as it can raise in several cancers, rheumatologic, gastrointestinal, and cardiovascular conditions, and infections (Windgassen et al. 2011). Elevation of CRP (as determined by a high-sensitivity CRP assay or hs-CRP) has a strong association with elevated risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke (Emerging Risk Factors Collaboration et al. 2010).

Vitamin E functions as an antioxidant in the body. Specifically, vitamin E is incorporated into low-density lipoprotein (LDL) particles and protects them against oxidative damage; it seems to guard against atherosclerosis via other mechanisms as well (Meydani 2001). The gamma-tocopherol form of vitamin E appears to complement the anti-inflammatory action of alpha-tocopherol. Gamma-tocopherol has been shown to inhibit COX-2 and attenuate IL-1β signaling (Jiang 2000; Sjoholm 2001). In a small clinical trial on subjects with metabolic syndrome, the combination of gamma-tocopherol and alpha-tocopherol effectively suppressed C-reactive protein and TNA-α levels compared to placebo (Devaraj 2008). In this study, the combination of both tocopherols performed better than either alone, prompting the investigators to remark "the combination of [alpha-tocopherol] and [gamma-tocopherol] supplementation appears to be superior to either supplementation alone on biomarkers of oxidative stress and inflammation and needs to be tested in prospective clinical trials..."

Scientists suggest that combining fish oil and krill oil may provide enhanced support for cardiovascular health and the brain due to the different ways that fish oil and krill oil are taken up by our cells. Fish oil and krill oil share many important similarities, such as reducing levels of omega-6 relative to beneficial omega-3 fatty acids. Most Americans consume too many omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids and not enough omega-3s.

Evidence suggests that by combining both fish and krill oil, you can maximize uptake and the protective benefits of a wide spectrum of omega-3 fatty acids. To provide enhanced coverage, a new Super Omega contains a potent concentration of fish oil, olive fruit, and sesame lignans, plus krill and astaxanthin.

Human studies suggest that omega-3 fatty acids from fish oil result in a more rapid uptake into plasma triglyceride and platelet phospholipids, which specifically benefit the cardiovascular system.

The omega-3s found in krill appear to be more rapidly incorporated into red blood cell phospholipids, which are rapidly absorbed into brain cells.
