Pregnant women not getting enough omega-3, critical for infant development
The APrON team studied the first 600 women in the cohort during and after their pregnancy to see whether they were consuming enough omega-3 long chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (omega 3-LCPUFA) to meet current recommendations. The team has just published their results in the journal Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism. (2015-03-25)

Enriching the diet of calves by using flax seeds improves nutritional quality
How can beef be made healthier for consumption purposes? When ingredients rich in n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, like flax seeds, and CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) were added to the food of these animals, their fat was modified, achieving an increase in omega-3 fatty acids and CLA -regarded as being beneficial for health- and a reduction in saturated fatty acids linked to cardiovascular disease.

From soda bans to bike lanes: Which 'natural experiments' really reduce obesity?
Many public health researchers take advantage of 'natural experiments' -- comparing people's calorie consumption or physical activity levels, either before and after a policy or environmental change, or in contrast to a similar group of people not affected by that change. But not all natural experiments are created equal. A Drexel public health team has now systematically reviewed the state of the science. (2015-03-20)

WSU researchers show how fatty acids can fight prostate cancer
Washington State University researchers have found a mechanism by which omega-3 fatty acids inhibit the growth and spread of prostate cancer cells. The findings, which are at odds with a 2013 study asserting that omega-3s increase the risk of prostate cancer, point the way to more effective anti-cancer drugs. (2015-03-18)

Why nitrate supplementation may increase athletic performance
Walk down the aisles of any food supplement store and you'll see that the use of nitrate supplements by athletes and fitness buffs has been popular for years. The hope is that these supplements will increase endurance, and possibly other performance/health benefits, by improving the efficiency at which muscles use oxygen. Now, a research study published in the March 2015 issue of The FASEB Journal helps explain how some of these supplements may work. (2015-03-02)

Plant chemicals may prevent liver damage caused by fat accumulated during menopause
Women going through menopause often struggle with weight gain that results when their estrogen levels drop, and many turn to weight-loss supplements. But those supplements may cause an accumulation of fat in the liver and a potentially life-threatening condition called non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. University of Georgia researchers have shown in studies of post-menopausal animals that a mix of phytochemicals, along with vitamin D, may help protect the liver against inflammation caused by fat accumulation.

Two new potato varieties of great nutritional value
Potatoes, an essential food in human nutrition, have two new varieties. They are 'Entzia' and 'Miren,' characterized by their great nutritional value and suitability for industrial processing. They are both striking in appearance since 'Miren' has a bright yellow flesh and 'Entzia' a purple one. This unique feature opens up for them an interesting possibility for use in homes and gastronomy in addition to being equally suitable for industrial purposes. (2015-02-23)

Nationwide study reports shifts in Americans' use of natural products
A nationally representative survey shows that natural product use in the United States has shifted since 2007, with some products becoming more popular and some falling out of favor. Overall, natural products (dietary supplements other than vitamins and minerals) remain the most common complementary health approach. The complementary health questionnaire was developed by NIH's National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Health Statistics.

Study shows iron supplementation after blood donation shortens hemoglobin recovery time
A National Institutes of Health-funded study comparing low dose iron supplementation to no supplementation in blood donors found that supplementation significantly reduced the time to recovery of post-donation lost iron and hemoglobin -- an iron-rich protein that carries oxygen in red blood cells throughout the body. (2015-02-10)

Iron supplementation improves hemoglobin recovery time following blood donation
Among blood donors with normal hemoglobin levels, low-dose oral iron supplementation, compared with no supplementation, reduced the time to recovery of the postdonation decrease in hemoglobin concentration in donors with low or higher levels of a marker of overall iron storage (ferritin), according to a study in the Feb. 10 issue of JAMA. (2015-02-10)

New approach to childhood malnutrition may reduce relapses, deaths
Children treated for moderate acute malnutrition experience a high rate of relapse and even death in the year following treatment and recovery. A study led by researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis indicates that supplementary feeding for a set time period -- 12 weeks -- makes an impact but may not be as important as treating children until they reach target weights and measures of arm circumference. (2015-02-10)

Drinking green tea before taking supplements may offer protection from toxicity
As high doses of green tea extract supplements for weight loss become more popular, potential liver toxicity becomes a concern.
