The plant-derived omega-3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.
This article was published in the following journal.

Previous studies suggest that eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), may decrease the risk of preeclampsia, but many suffer from important methodologi...
Chia seed (Salvia hispanica L.) contains high amounts of n-3 α-linolenic acid (ALA) and has been associated with many health benefits. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the AIN-93 diet sup...
Effect of alpha-linolenic acid in combination with the flavonol quercetin on markers of cardiovascular disease risk in healthy, non-obese adults: A randomized, double-blinded placebo-controlled crossover trial.
Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) and quercetin are characteristic compounds in plant-based diets. Cardioprotective effects have been described for both substances, although a possible benefit of combining A...
The risk of coronary heart disease associated with intake of individual trans fatty acids (TFAs) is not clear. Adipose tissue content of TFAs is a biomarker of TFA intake and metabolism.
Enhanced accumulation of alpha-linolenic acid rich lipids in indigenous freshwater microalga Desmodesmus sp.: The effect of low-temperature on nutrient replete, UV treated and nutrient stressed cultures.
The indigenous microalga, Desmodesmus sp. produced alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) rich lipids in response to low temperature and UV treatment. Incubation at 5 °C showed a 1.5 fold increase in lipid con...
Background: The plant-derived omega-3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA, 18:3-n-3) may reduce the risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, including incident myocardial infarctio...
Preliminary studies have shown that flaxseed powder, rich in the omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid,is beneficial for the general inflammation present in morbidly obese subjects by decreasing e...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the antiatherogenic and anti-inflammatory potential of an adequate intake of alpha-linolenic acid in elderly.
An alpha linolenic acid (ALA) rich diet in the Lyon Diet Heart Study reduced sudden cardiac deaths possibly by reducing cardiac arrhythmias and ventricular fibrillation (Lancet 1994). Sin...
Omega-3 fatty acids are "good fats," and are among the most important nutrients lacking in Western diets today. The average person in developing countries consumes less than 100 mg of DHA ...
Brown fat-like adipose tissue that develops in WHITE ADIPOSE TISSUE from non-MYOGENIC REGULATORY FACTOR 5 expressing cell lineage.
Specialized connective tissue composed of fat cells (ADIPOCYTES). It is the site of stored FATS, usually in the form of TRIGLYCERIDES. In mammals, there are two types of adipose tissue, the WHITE FAT and the BROWN FAT. Their relative distributions vary in different species with most adipose tissue being white.
An omega-6 fatty acid produced in the body as the delta 6-desaturase metabolite of linoleic acid. It is converted to dihomo-gamma-linolenic acid, a biosynthetic precursor of monoenoic prostaglandins such as PGE1. (From Merck Index, 11th ed)
A fatty acid that is found in plants and involved in the formation of prostaglandins.
A plant genus of the family LAMIACEAE that is a source of perilla alcohol and the oil is rich in alpha-linolenic acid (alpha-18:3).
