Clinical Trials [1585 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Use of Flaxseed(Alpha Linolenic Acid) Powder in Morbidly Obese Patients With Systemic Inflammation

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...

Dietary Intake of Alpha-linolenic Acid in Elderly

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the antiatherogenic and anti-inflammatory potential of an adequate intake of alpha-linolenic acid in elderly.

Arrhythmia Prevention With an Alpha-Linolenic Enriched Diet

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...

The Effect of Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA) Supplementation During Pregnancy

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 ...

Omega-3 Supplementation and Attention-Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

It is assumed that only 1/5 of children diagnosed with attention-deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are treated. New treatment modalities are urgently needed. Omega-3 fatty acids have b...

PubMed Articles [11031 Associated PubMed Articles listed on BioPortfolio]

Effect of one and two months high dose alpha-linolenic acid treatment on C-labeled alpha-linolenic acid incorporation and conversion in healthy subjects.

We aimed at identifying (1) the most sensitive compartment among plasma phospholipids, erythrocytes and LDL for studying ALA conversion, and (2) whether ALA incorporation and conversion is saturable a...

Adipose tissue content of alpha-linolenic acid and the risk of ischemic stroke and ischemic stroke subtypes: A Danish case-cohort study.

The plant-derived omega-3 fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Dietary Intake of Alpha-Linolenic Acid Is Not Appreciably Associated with the Risk of Ischemic Stroke among Middle-Aged Danish Men and Women.

Intake of the plant-derived omega-3 (n-3) fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) may reduce the risk of ischemic stroke.

Dietary linseed supplementation affects the fatty acid composition of the sn-2 position of triglycerides in sheep milk.

In the human intestine, lipids are absorbed as sn-2 monoglycerides (sn-2, also named β-position), produced mainly by pancreatic lipases, which hydrolysate the triglyceride molecule in positions 1 and...

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...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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).

Eighteen-carbon cyclopentyl polyunsaturated fatty acids derived from ALPHA-LINOLENIC ACID via an oxidative pathway analogous to the EICOSANOIDS in animals. Biosynthesis is inhibited by SALICYLATES. A key member, jasmonic acid of PLANTS, plays a similar role to ARACHIDONIC ACID in animals.

The fixed oil obtained from the dried ripe seed of linseed, Linum usitatissimum (L. Linaceae). It is used as an emollient in liniments, pastes, and medicinal soaps, and in veterinary medicine as a laxative. It is also called flaxseed oil. (Dorland, 28th ed)
