Navn/beskrivelse: Reduction in behavior problems with omega-3 supplementation in children aged 8-16 years: a randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled stratified, parallel-group trial.

Institusjon: Department of Criminology, Psychiatry and Psychology, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia. (Adrian Raine1, Jill Portnoy, Jianghong Liu, Tashneem Mahoomed, Joseph R. Hibbeln)

Målsetning: This study tests the hypothesis that omega-3 supplementation over 6 months will reduce behavior problems in children both at the end of treatment and at 6 months post treatment.

Konklusjon: Findings provide initial evidence that omega-3 supplementation can produce sustained reductions in externalizing and internalizing behavior problems. Results are the first to report improvements in caregiver behavior, and to establish this improvement as a part-mechanism for the efficacy of omega-3.

Navn/beskrivelse: Effect of Smartfish and other commercial marine oil products on lipid peroxidation in U937 cells

Institusjon: University of Oslo Department of Nutrition Sognsvannsveien 9 0372 Oslo, Dr. Harald Carlsen Dr. Fred Haugen

Målsetning: To investigate the degree of lipid peroxidation in cell membranes of U937 cells following incubation of Smart-fish juice and gelatin capsule based marine oils rich in omega 3 fatty acids. The marine oils from capsules were supplemented with lycopene and lutein to see whether these antioxidants would influence the degree of lipid peroxidation compared with Smartfish-juice.

Konklusjon: In conclusion, the data strongly suggest that Smartfish-juice seems to offer a greater protection against lipid peroxidation than other suppliers of marine oil products

Biotilgjenglighet og toleranse

Navn/beskrivelse: Effects of a convenience drink fortified with n-3 fatty acids on the n-3 index

Institusjon: Department Preventive Cardiology, Medizinische Klinik-Innenstadt and Poliklinik Innenstadt, Ludwig-Maximilians-University, Ziemssenstrasse 1, D-80336 Munich, Germany. Anton Köhler, Daniel Bittner, Anja Löw and Clemens von Schacky*

Målsetning: The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of a convenience drink enriched with 500 mg EPA and DHA on the n-3 index, a biomarker of EPA and DHA status in an individual.

Konklusjon: Signifikant økning i omega-3indeks. Trygg, godt tolerert og velsmakende

Muskler og restitusjon

Navn/beskrivelse: The importance of fish oils for facilitating muscle recovery from damaging exercise in competitive soccer players

Institusjon: University of Stirling, Oliver Witard and Kevin Tipton

Målsetning: 1) To investigate the impact of fish oil supplementation on putative blood markers of muscle damage during recovery from a bout of muscle damaging exercise. 2) To investigate the impact of fish oil supplementation on blood markers of inflammation during recovery from a bout of muscle damaging exercise. 3) To investigate the impact of fish oil supplementation on perceived feelings of muscle soreness during recovery from a bout of muscle damaging exercise. 4) To investigate the impact of fish oil supplementation on vertical jump performance performed subsequent to a bout of muscle damaging exercise. 5) To investigate the impact of fish oil supplementation on 5, 10 and 15 m sprint performance during recovery from a bout of muscle damaging exercise. 6) To investigate the impact of fish oil supplementation on the performance of a soccer-specific agility test (T-test) during recovery from a bout of muscle damaging exercise. 7) To investigate the impact of fish oil supplementation on the performance of anaerobic capacity during recovery from a bout of muscle damaging exercise.
