NEW YORK – People whose blood contains large amounts of omega-3 fatty acids will not experience health problems when they reach old age, suggests a new study. The authors of the study focused on what is known as aging with health or the number of years that people live without disability or physical or psychological problems.
They examined data of 2,622 people over 74 years of age or older, between 1992 and 2015. "We discovered that older adults with higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids than shellfish were more likely to have access to shellfish," said Hedy Lay , a research leader at the Friedman School of Nutrition at the Tufts University in Boston. "He said this in an email." These results support the current nutrition guidelines that recommend eating more fish. "According to the nutrition guidelines of the United States, adults should eat about 225 grams of fish every week. This means eating twice a week instead of meat, poultry or eggs Omega-3 fish are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, salmon, anchovies, herring, sardines and oysters. The study found that people with higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids had an aging risk among 18 and 21 percent, one of the possible explanations is that omega-3 fatty acids help regulate blood pressure, pulse and inflammation.
Earlier studies linked omega-3 fatty acids, reduced pulmonary disorders, reduced lipids in the blood, decreased the risk of arterial blockade and decreased blood pressure.
