Omega-3 Fatty Acids Linked to Younger Biological Age
High blood levels of omega-3 fatty acids may slow cellular ageing in people with coronary heart disease, suggests a new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. Researchers studied the length of telomeres (DNA sequences) that appear to shorten as cells age. They found an inverse relationship between omega-3 fatty acids and the rate of telomere shortening over a five year time period, hence raising the possibility that omega-3s may protect against cellular ageing, in patients with coronary heart disease. A possible mechanism of action could be linked to omega-3s ability to reduce oxidative stress, known to drive telomere shortening and the possibility that omega-3s increase the activity of an enzyme that works to maintain telomere length and subsequently a younger ‘biological age’.
