Stress increases the risk of chronic inflammation in the body, which is one of the leading causes of various diseases
American scientists are discovering that fish oil may protect against negative impact of stress on the heart, thanks to omega 3 fatty acids.
“At the present time, stress has become a normal part of everyday life,” said study leader Prof. Jason Carter, and added that “with all that there are food habits that are not in our favor and put our body under further stress.”
The study, published in the American Journal of Physiology, participated 67 patients with normal levels of blood pressure. Participants in the period of 8 weeks of daily taking 9 grams of fish oil supplements.
At the end of the research scientists are doing a variety of tests, including measuring the level of blood pressure and heart rate. The test results showed that the supplements reduce the level of cortisol in the body, regulating the level of the heart rate and reduce the level of free radicals.
Scientists have not noted any effect on blood pressure levels. These results suggest that fish oil has a great impact on the health and reducing the harmful effects of stress on the body.
Previous studies have shown that stress increases the risk of chronic inflammation in the body, which is one of the leading causes of various diseases, including type 2 diabetes, heart disease and circulatory system.
