Subject: Omega 3 Fatty Acid Found To Stop Liver Damage From Getting Worse
Oregon State University researchers have determined an Omega 3 fatty acid can stop the progression of liver damage in lab animals for specific type of liver disease known a nonalcoholic steatohepatitis or NASH. The Omega 3 which produces this effect is docosahexaenoic acid or (DHA) a readily available dietary supplement. However, researchers caution this treatment will most generally be used clinically since the population rarely follows dietary recommendations on supplements. NASH is caused from consumption of the western diet high in sugar, cholesterol and fats and can lead to the development of liver cancer or cirrhosis.
- A study with lab rats show that a type of omega 3 fatty acid offers people, who are overweight, to avoid liver issues
- NASH is a risk factor for cirrhosis and liver cancer.
- Omega 3 fatty acids regulate pathways, including synthesis, oxidation, and breakdown of fats in the blood.
"Characterised by liver inflammation, oxidative stress and fibrosis, NASH is a substantial risk factor for cirrhosis and liver cancer."
