Omega 3 Fatty Acids In Seafood Linked To Lower Risk Of Chronic Kidney Problems


“Higher levels of omega 3 fatty acids found in seafood are associated with a moderately lower risk of chronic kidney disease and a slower decline in kidney function, finds a study published by the British Medical Journal.” [Source:]


As with other chronic diseases, conventional medicine approaches to chronic kidney disease only target its symptoms. Drugs for high blood pressure, such as angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors or angiotensin receptor blockers, are often prescribed. Doctors may also give diuretic drugs to treat water retention, or statins to lower levels of cholesterol. However, these medications can cause severe side effects and fail to address the root of the problem.

Fortunately, therefore, there is growing evidence that science-based natural health approaches are helpful. In a study published in the Clinical Nutrition journal in 2015, Australian scientists demonstrated how omega-3 fatty acid supplements can help reduce inflammation for people with chronic kidney disease. Describing how their work shows that, by supplementing such patients with omega-3 fatty acids, the body’s synthesis of blood factors that help resolve inflammation can be increased, the researchers concluded this may have important implications for limiting inflammatory problems in the condition.
