Effects of krill oil and lean and fatty fish on cardiovascular risk markers: a randomised controlled trial
(Nutrition Society, 2018)
Fish consumption and supplementation with n-3 fatty acids reduce CVD risk. Krill oil is an alternative source of marine n-3 fatty acids and few studies have investigated its health effects. Thus, we compared krill oil ...
Effects of fish and krill oil on gene expression in peripheral blood mononuclear cells and circulating markers of inflammation: a randomised controlled trial
(Nutrition Society, 2018-03-21)
Marine n-3 (omega-3) fatty acids alter gene expression by regulating the activity of transcription factors. Krill oil is a source of marine n-3 fattyacids that has been shown to modulate gene expression in animal studies; ...
Plasma fatty acid levels and gene expression related to lipid metabolism in peripheral blood mononuclear cells: A cross-sectional study in healthy subjects
Background: Solid evidence indicates that intake of marine n-3 fatty acids lower serum triglycerides, and that replacing saturated fatty acids (SFA) with polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) reduces plasma total cholesterol ...
Helserelatert livskvalitet og ernæringsstatus blant eldre hjemmeboende over 70 år
(Norsk Tidsskrift for Ernæring, 2018-06-28)
Bakgrunn: Det er vanlig å inkludere helserelatert livskvalitet i kliniske studier, men det er få som har undersøkt dette hos eldre hjemme boende ≥ 70 år. Hensikten med denne studien var primært å beskrive helserelatert ...
Reduced plasma concentration of branched-chain amino acids in sarcopenic older subjects: a cross-sectional study
(Cambridge University Press, 2018-06-18)
Branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) are essential amino acids necessary for muscle mass maintenance. Little is known about the plasma concentrations of BCAAs and the protein intake in relation to sarcopenia. We aimed ...
Impact of a healthy dietary pattern on gut microbiota and systemic inflammation in humans
Gut microbiota have recently been suggested to play a part in low-grade systemic inflammation, which is considered a key risk factor for cardiometabolic disorders. Diet is known to affect gut microbiota; however, the ...
