A diet supplemented with beverages formulated with DHA-rich omega-3 oil may significantly improve HDL cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood pressure, says a new study.
Editorial: Here is another study that interprets its results contrary to the most objective and thorough research. Among other detrimental issues, PUFAs can easily burden the body, making it less effective in its many functions. Lower cholesterol and blood lipid numbers, which PUFAs trigger, are often unhealthful. As recommended decades ago by the U.S. medical community, two-hundred plus one’s age is usually the ideal cholesterol level, not the below 200 level espoused by most today as a result of the
powerful and ‘legal’ drug industry. A healthy and active liver will produce high lipid numbers, especially for beneficial HDL. For example, in one study a man in his mid 60s consuming a had a cholesterol level of 266 and HDLs at 90! Even within orthodox parameters, this total cholesterol to HDL ratio is 3-1 and in the healthiest range for the heart. Yet high cholesterol levels with low HDLs is not healthy, likely a result of unwise dietary practices.
