• Oils Rich in α-Linolenic Acid or Docosahexaenoic Acid Have Distinct Effects on Plasma Oxylipin and Adiponectin Concentrations and on Monocyte Bioenergetics in Women with Obesity

    2 monthes ago - By Nutrition

    ABSTRACTBackgroundOmega-3 fatty acids, including DHA and α-linolenic acid , are proposed to improve metabolic health by reducing obesity-associated inflammation. Their effects are mediated in part by conversion to oxylipins. ALA is relatively understudied, and direct comparisons to other omega-3 fatty acids are limited.ObjectivesWe compared the effects of equal doses of ALA and DHA on plasma oxylipins and markers of metabolic health in women with obesity.MethodsWe carried out a randomized, double-blind, crossover clinical trial where women aged 20-51 with a BMI of 30-51 kg/m 2 were...
