Can omega3 help with depression ?

Wednesday, October 20th, 2010

TakeOmega3 is a unique 85% omega3 formulation with each capsule containing 750mg EPA and 50mg DHA , it is also uniquely manufactured in the UK in a MHRA approved facility  this is the reason is it used by leading Psychiatrists , Hospitals and Clinics either as an adjunctive therapy for the treatment of depression or as primary treatment.So why  take omega3 for the treatment of depression and how does it work ? Unlike products such as St Johns Wort Take Omega3 is completely safe to take alongside other medication .

EPA  helps to block the action of the P-glycoprotein pump (Pgp) located near the blood/brain barrier. Many antidepressants, including the most selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitors (SSRIs), are barred from entering the brain by Pgp. Hence, EPA promotes the absorption of some antidepressants in the brain, an ideal tool to tackle therapy resistant depression. (Murck H et al., 2004) It is not surprising that Omega 3  has a significant impact on brain activity: 60% of our dry brain matter consists of fats. The production, breakdown, release, re-absorption and binding of neurotransmitters can be influenced by the fatty acids nestling in the cell membranes of nerve cells. In fact it is now known that the consumption of fish oil has a beneficial effect on serotonin control EPA supplementation, in both unipolar and bipolar depression has been used with conventional medication such as paroxetine, fluoxetine, mirtazapine, fluvoxamine, moclobemide, citalopram, trazodone, lithium, valproate, carbamazepine, clonazepam and venlafaxine.

Omega 3 and Kidney Cancer

Wednesday, October 13th, 2010

In 2006 there was a study published which looked at the consumption of oily fish which is high in omega3 and the rate of Kidney Cancer – over a period of 15 years they looked at the how it compared to consumers of lean fish ie cod .What they found was quite dramatic those who ate oily fish which is high in omega3 specifically EPA had a 74% lower risk of developing kidney cancer in comparison to those who ate no fish at all .Those who ate the lean fish ie cod did not get the same results as those eating the oily fish. Not everyone likes to eat oily fish which is why more and more people are choosing to take omega 3 in the form of a supplement – however not all supplements are equal. TakeOmega3 is an 85% clinical grade omega3 which has the highest concentrations of omega3 currently available. Each capsule contains 750mg EPA and 50mg DHA .
The researchers, writing in the Journal of the American Medical Association, did not indicate whether fatty fish might prevent other types of cancer.
Of more than 61,000 women in the study, ranging in age from 40 to 76, 150 developed kidney cancer.
In the United States, there is a one in 77 lifetime risk of kidney cancer, and 39,000 Americans expected to be diagnosed this year, according to the American Cancer Society. The disease is twice as common among men than women.
With regards Prostate Cancer previous studies have found eating fatty fish such as sardines anchovies, salmon herring, and mackerel could reduce men’s risk of developing prostate cancer. Essential fatty acids – especially omega-3 fatty acids contained in large amounts in fatty fish – have previously been proved to inhibit the growth of prostate cancer cells.
