Scientific study showed that moderate use and the systematic approach of fatty acids found in fish oils, can reduce the symptoms of aging.
The presentation showed the results of the experiment in the British scientific festival, in Aberdeen that the ladies at the age of sixty-five who eat omega-3 fatty acids, gained muscle strength twice higher than others have undergone the same test and ate olive oil.
Some studies have linked increased communion between the omega-3 found in general in fish oils such as mackerel and sardines in between meals and the potential health benefits such as reducing coronary heart disease.
The information is known about the prevalence of Britain is limited, but the data coming from the United States indicate that a quarter of people between the ages of 50 and 70 years suffer from these symptoms and the rate rises to half among those beyond the age of eighty years.
According to specialist of the University of Aberdeen, the numbers of infected very large, and that between half to one percent of the size of the budget is spent on the role of care-related diseases.
Linked to the rate of loss of muscle strength mainly lifestyle, as well as the rates of dependence on low protein diet, sedentary life is quiet known they increase the rates of sagging muscles.
And previous studies have shown that foods rich in animal feed omega -3 enhance the strength of the muscles, to search about whether these fatty acids can reduce the symptoms of when progress in age.
In initial studies discovered through MRIs that in middle-aged mice that were fed additional food containing fish oil has a lower rate in the lost muscle strength than their counterparts that are fed Normal feeding system.
"The fish oil has the ability to promote the building of muscle in mice, but mice are not like humans, but this is what comes second attempt to try it on humans."
In order to this, adopted on 14 women at the age of 65 years into two groups, to diet program for a period of 12 weeks, and the program includes muscle exercises for 30 minutes.
And half of the women were giving those acids EPA and DHA, which contain omega-3 fatty substance, while the other group was given olive oil as an alternative treatment.
Were measured strength muscles of the legs in women in the beginning and end of the experiment?
The results were convincing, rising strength of the muscles of women who olive oil by 11 percent, while the proportion rose statistical significantly in women who ate acids EPA and DHA for up to 20 percent.
But confirmed Speaking to the BBC that "One of the problems is that the amount of EPA differ in the dose, containing one gram of fish oil may contain 100 milligrams of EPA may contain on the 400."
He advised anyone who would like to increase its intake of EPA and DHA that addresses the capsules contain higher levels of these fatty acids, instead of the capsules medium quantities of fish that contain these oils can provide the same quantities used in the experiment.
The researchers have now received funding to carry out a larger trial of 60 people aged over 65 years to make sure that the beneficial effects of fatty acids.
The new experiment will begin after the agreement with the men and women who will undergo testing. Previous research showed a difference in response of men and women of the new quality of the protein, as well as differing responses for muscle exercises.
Older women to have the same levels of production of a protein found in women younger while reduced levels among older men compared to younger men." It is scheduled to begin the experiment on a larger scale next month, and will be selected people from the area.
