A newly published study suggests that supplementation of Omega-3, an anti-inflammatory nutrient, might increase anti-oxidant capacity, in specific cases. Nutri-Med Logic Corp, agreeing with this study, states that anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant nutrients retain a mutually exclusive area, whereas anti-oxidant nutrients do ameliorate inflammation and anti-inflammatory nutrients, such as Omega-3, do improve some specific area of oxidative stress.
However, anti-oxidants are a class of nutrients that neutralize free radicals and anti-inflammatory nutrients are another category of nutrients, which attempt to improve or resolve dysregulated inflammation. While these two categories of nutrients could make an improvement in the camp of the other, but they each have different inherent properties and thus neither one should be taken in the place of the other.
This newly published study states that in the case of alcohol consumption and certain areas of the brain, in animal studies, Omega-3, an anti-inflammatory nutrient, improved anti-oxidant capacity (reduced oxidative stress) through increasing glutathione (an important internal anti-oxidant). Glutathione neutralizes (reduced) free radicals, which damage the cells. Glutathione represents one of the most important elements of anti-oxidant defense.
According to The Department of Internal Medicine of University of Miami, the cellular anti-oxidant defense (Redox) is regulated by three systems, two of which are also regulated by glutathione. (1)
Accordingly, increasing glutathione through Omega-3 supplementation, be it only in one specific case as the case here, is a very novel and important finding. However, glutathione levels easily and systemically are increased through supplementation of another nutrient, R-Alpha Lipoic, an anti-oxidant by itself.
Anti-inflammatory nutrients, such as Omega-3, improve dysregulated inflammation. Chronic (dysregulated) inflammation causes or contributes to the cause or progression of most degenerative diseases.
Inflammation, an immune mechanism, is mainly regulated by a cellular switch called NF-kB, which its over-activation has been well associated with chronic and degenerative diseases. Studies have shown that suitable dietary intake of Omega-3 results in a more behaved NF-kB. (2)
As anti-inflammatory nutrients, such as Omega-3, could improve anti-oxidant defense, anti-oxidant nutrients would also result in a more behaved NF-kB, since oxidative stress contributes to the over-activation of NF-kB, thus promoting chronic inflammation. However, anti-oxidant nutrients are not consumed to combat inflammation and anti-inflammatory nutrients should not be taken to combat oxidative stress.
None-the-less, anti-oxidant nutrients improve inflammation and anti-inflammatory nutrients, such as Omega-3, could conversely improve some areas of oxidative stress, as in the case of this new study.
In conclusion, Nutri-Med Logic Corp states that while the novel finding of this important study adds to the ever growing health benefits of Omega-3 but Omega-3 is inherently and anti-inflammatory nutrient.
