An Omega-3 Windfall

From eNewsletter 9/6/2023

DID YOU KNOW that dopamine affects your kidneys and blood pressure? Dopamine is crucial to kidney function, and proper function of the kidney’s dopaminergic system is necessary to prevent salt sensitivity. When activated, multiple dopamine receptors get rid of sodium if you have eaten too much salt. If you eat excess sodium and your blood pressure goes up, it likely means the dopaminergic system in the kidney is dysfunctional, and you are not able to get rid of excess sodium. If you have high blood pressure that has been very difficult to manage even when you seem to be doing everything right, it could be related to your dopamine function. Everyone should check their genetic predisposition for salt sensitivity and dopamine function, both of which are included in our Pure Genomics genetic wellness screening.

An Omega-3 Windfall

Steve: Lest we forget how important it is to get optimal omega-3 fatty acids from food and supplements to balance out our omega-6:omega-3 ratio, recent data reminds us. A study from Nutrients found that omega-3 fatty acids prevents telomere shortening, a marker associated with longevity, by reducing oxidative stress and inflammation. A study from Journal of Alzheimer's Disease purport that a certain supplement formula had a positive effect on measures of cognitive decline in older adults suffering from mild Alzheimer's disease. The formula was led by EPA/DHA-rich fish oil, along with lutein and zeaxanthin, and mixed tocopherol vitamin E. The higher the omega-3 content in your seafood, the lower your risk of getting gout, according to findings in Frontiers in Nutrition. Omega-3 fatty acids from fish and fish oil supplements are promising for maintaining lung health, according to new evidence from a large study in healthy adults supported by the National Institutes of Health, and published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine. According to a study in Frontiers in Nutrition, supplementation with high-dose omega-3 fatty acids could modulate metabolism and inflammation in patients with obesity without weight loss or changes in body composition.
