Great link on fish oil benefits and like to add fish oil reduces cholesterol level and helps in losing weight. Fish oil prevents us from depression, cardio disease, joint pains, triglyceride level and schizophrenia. Fish oil improves our vision and great for brain functions.
I am not 100% sure about this, however it does make some sense of what they are saying. There are some cardiologists breaking ranks with currrent medical guidelines saying that omega 3 foods and supplements like fish oil will prevent clogged arteries. Cholesterol buildup is not the cause but the symptom, because it is the inflamed arteries that get clogged with cholestrol. Basically, what they are saying that our diets consist of too much omega 6 foods that inflame arteries like corn oil, canola oil, salad dressings, low fat mayo, etc. except olive oil, fish oil, coconut oil. I found it interesting, because they are saying that current medical guidelines force cardiologists to prescribe statin drugs because of fear of potential lawsuits. In reality, we are treating the symptom and not the cause. They are going as far as saying that cholesterol is not a bad thing, but a good thing and statin drugs are doing more harm than good. Please, I am not suggesting to drop your statin drugs right away, but it is something to look into. This all ties up with big pharma pushing a drug that really does nothing but line the pockets of pharmaceutical companies backed by our trusty FDA.
Everyday fish oil capsule may provide kidney-related benefits
Here's some results of a study that were just released.
Over the past decade, there has been a steady stream of information promoting the health benefits of fish oil capsules. According to Dr. Louise Moist, a Scientist at Lawson Health Research Institute, fish oil may also improve outcomes for kidney patients undergoing hemodialysis.
Hemodialysis can be delivered through arteriovenous (AV) grafts, artificial vessels created to join an artery to a vein. Unfortunately, AV grafts are prone to congestion and clotting, causing disruptions to treatment and a need for surgical correction.
Research suggests fish oil could prevent AV grafts from clotting and reduce related cardiovascular events. In a new multi-centre, randomized clinical trial, Dr. Moist and her colleagues followed patients undergoing hemodialysis using new AV grafts for 12 months after creation. Patients were assigned to daily doses of either four fish oil capsules, or four placebo capsules.
Results show those patients taking fish oil experienced a lower rate of graft failure, with half as many grafts lost to clotting. The amount of time until clotting occurred increased, and fewer corrective interventions were required. In addition, those taking fish oil had lower blood pressure, and lower rates of heart attacks, heart failure and other cardiac-related events.
"This study provides very exciting results," Dr. Moist says. "Fish oil did not fix all the problems with grafts but it reduced the number of costly, time consuming procedures for patients already receiving a very burdensome treatment with dialysis. It is not often we have such encouraging results that benefit patients' quality of life and reduce health care costs. "
Moving forward Dr. Moist and her colleagues are planning a second study focusing more intensely on blood pressure and cardiovascular events as related to fish oil. Dr. Moist is hopeful these results could provide a safer way to avoid cardiovascular complications and extend the patency of the graft during hemodialysis.
The trial was led by Dr. Charmaine Lok at Toronto General Hospital, and funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and the Physicians Services Incorporated (PSI) Foundation. The full study will be released today in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
