Omega 3 supplementation protects against intracranial atherosclerosis
August 29 2016. Research reported on August 16, 2016 in Neuroscience found a protective effect for supplementation with the omega 3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid, a precursor of the omega 3 EPA, against the risk of intracranial atherosclerosis, a leading cause of recurrent ischemic stroke.
Researchers gave rats a diet that contained high or normal amounts of cholesterol for up to six weeks. Animals that received the high cholesterol diet were treated for the first two weeks with a compound that rendered them susceptible to atherosclerosis, and half of the group was given omega 3 daily for six weeks. Blood levels of triglycerides, and HDL, LDL and total cholesterol were measured at three and six weeks.
