recently, an international magazine published in the
study published last month, scientists from
the University of Rochester Medical Center
found that fish oil may be an effective treatment for asthma. Researcher
Richard P. Phipps
said the Ω
fatty acids contained in fish oil can reduce the production of
in the body, while
is a special antibody that induces allergic reactions and asthma symptoms in people with mild asthma. But in severe asthma patients with oral low-dose steroids, Ω
fatty acids do not work because corticosteroids in the drug block the beneficial effects of Ω
Previously, researchers have found that fish oil contains specific fatty acids that regulate the function of the body's immune
cells, and that molecules in the body that slow and increase inflammation tend to show imbalances, and that steroid drugs as a therapy can control inflammation and relieve symptoms in patients, but they do not effectively treat the disease. In the paper, the researchers collected blood from
cells in the lab, and studied the effects of pure Ω
and other disease-inducing molecules, and then compared the results of
patients with health comparisons.
In the study, many volunteer patients took corticosteroids, which depend on the severity of asthma, and the results showed that all patients responded to Ω
fatty acids with reduced levels of
antibodies in their bodies; Steroids are an effective treatment for asthma, and it seems that when they are used regularly, in some cases they may reduce the natural ability of some patients to fight asthma-related inflammation in their bodies.
A study published
New England Journal of Medicine
2016 suggests that individuals may be able to reduce their risk of wheezing and asthma in the post-birth period when exposed to fish oil before birth, and researcher
points out that fish oil may also be a dietary supplement, but consumers need to be wary when buying it. In the study, researchers used
, a pure biologically active product of fish oil, and made clear why high-quality fish oil is good for the human body.
polyunsaturated fatty acids were previously thought to have many health benefits and, once ingested by the body, can be converted into special decomposition-mediated substances that inhibit the inflammatory response without suppressing the body's immune system. Ω
polyunsaturated fatty acids are found in a variety of foods, such as flax, salmon, mackerel, sardines and walnuts.
