Although it has been seen that supplementation with Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids could lessen allergic reactions and asthma symptoms by reducing the production of antibodies, researchers believe that these benefits may be hampered by asthma medication.
Cell cultures from 17 Asthma patients were used. Researchers found that introducing Omega-3 Essential Fatty acids could reduce the numbers of IgE antibodies. These antibodies are produced in response to ongoing airway inflammation. Corticosteroids which are used to treat severe asthma appeared to block the Omega-3 oils effectiveness by interfering with cell signaling molecules. These cells signaling molecules are responsible for overseeing the specialized proresolving mediators (SPMs), part of the inflammatory process. Omega 3’s, once supplemented in the body convert to certain SPMs that stop inflammation without compromising the immune system. Researchers believe that SPMs are “important therapeutics for most patients with allergic asthma”
Further studies are needed.
Make sure your fish oil is molecularly distilled to remove potential toxins. Also a Fish oil that is manufactured to comply with strict European standards will be free of heavy metals, PCB’s, dioxins, pesticides and other unwanted compounds. An enteric coating will protect the Fish Oil from the harsh environment of the stomach, and then the softgel will better travel to the small intestine where it can be digested and its fatty acids released and absorbed into the body. This prevents a fishy aftertaste and odor, and is helpful to sensitive individuals. Some products will use lemon oil to help with the digestion of the Fish Oil softgel without any fishy burps.
