Nutrition Does Matter!
A recent study on the benefits of fish oil and Vitamin D was released by the Council for Responsible Nutrition. The study results were also published by The New England Journal of Medicine titled The Vitamin D and Omega -3 Trial (VITAL). There are times when specific nutrients deserve our attention. Studies like this one add supporting information to our belief that the body, when given the right nutrients and nurturing, is designed to heal and restore itself.
Without going into the full details of the study, what was impressive is 25,000 people participated in the study. Although top-line results in healthy people were not remarkable, what is striking are the findings below the top-line results in the additional analysis shows:
- Almost a 30 percent reduction in heart attacks in the fish oil group compared to placebo
- A 40 percent reduction of heart attacks in fish oil groups who had less than 1.5 servings. of fish per week with even more dramatic results among African-Americans.
- Reduction in the rate of cancer deaths two or more years later in people who took Vitamin D.
Having owned a research company in the past, I learned that many times it is in the additional findings are often the most interesting. The study affirms the safety of both Vitamin D and omega fatty acids, and does not change the decades of research showing how crucial supplementation is for overall health.
Vitamin D, a nutrient of public health concern, plays an important role in bone health, immune function and maintaining cardiovascular health in adults. Omega-3 is essential to cardiovascular, prenatal and cognitive health.
