Omega 3 reducerer triglycerider (fedtstoffer) i blodet.
“Fish oil, both EPA and DHA, are reference drugs for the purpose of reducing triglycerides with highly reliable reductions in the range of 15-30% (higher reductions seen in persons with higher baseline triglycerides)”
Omega 3 viser sig at være sammenlignelig med medicin mod depression.
“Fish oil supplementation has been noted to be comparable to pharmaceutical drugs (fluoxetine) in majorly depressed persons, but this may be the only cohort that experiences a reduction of depression. There is insufficient evidence to support a reduction of depressive symptoms in persons with minor depression (ie. not diagnosed major depressive disorder)”
Kan sænke højt blodtryk ved personer med højt blodtryk.
“May decrease blood pressure in persons with high blood pressure, but does not appear to have efficacy in persons with normal blood pressure”
Muligt at Omega 3 hæver HDL-Kolesterol (High Density Lipoproteins-Kolesterol)
“Mixed evidence, but a possible increase in HDL-C is seen with fish oil supplementation in unhealthy persons”
Omega 3 sænker muligvis inflammation. Inflammation har en yderst afgørende faktor for fedttab, og derfor afgørende at få sænket.
“Highly mixed and unreliable influences on circulating inflammatory cytokines (although, due to immunosuppression on cellular adhesion factors, the overall effect may still be antiinflammatory)”
