Omega 3 helps reduce the ageing process

A research project on patients with cardiovascular disease has shone light on how Omega 3 can work to reduce biological ageing. The level of omega 3 is inversely related to shortening of a part of DNA called telomeres. As cells divide the telomeres control the ability of the cell to replicate without damage. The shorter the telomeres the greater the chance of defects forming.

The researchers concluded that ‘omega-3 fatty acids were associated with decelerated telomere attrition over 5 years’.

The researchers also stated that more research was required, but provided an interesting insight into how the known health benefits of Omega 3, can be explained at a cellular level.

Chlorella has been shown to reduce body fat

A study published in the Journal of Medicinal foods has shown that consumption of Chlorella for a period of 16 weeks, reduces body fat. The research was conducted over 34 individuals split into high risk and low risk factors for life style related disease.
