NCI Well Connect Mid-Week Brief
November 9, 2016
Dear Steve, 

DID YOU KNOW that a recent study in Scientific Reports found that replacing traditional marine ingredients, fishmeal and fish oil, in farmed salmon diets with alternatives from grain and land animals, has greatly limited the amount of EPA and DHA to such a degree that one would have to consume twice the amount of Scottish Atlantic salmon to satisfy recommended EPA and DHA intake levels endorsed by health advisory organizations?

Green Tea and the Cholesterol Effect
Bonnie and Steve: There have been studies suggesting that green tea improves cardiovascular disease risk factors, including lipids. However, current evidence has been predominantly based on small, short-term randomized controlled trials.

The aim of a study in the November issue of American Journal of Clinical Nutritionwas to examine the efficacy and impact of green tea extract (GTE) supplementation high in epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) on blood lipids in healthy postmenopausal women.

Participants were randomly assigned to receive GTE or placebo. They consumed either GTE or identical placebo capsules daily for 12 months.

Compared with placebo, one year supplementation with GTE capsules resulted in a significant reduction in circulating total cholesterol (−2.1%), LDL cholesterol (−4.1%) and non-HDL cholesterol (−3.1%).

Among all the other notable benefits from consuming green tea, whether by extract or beverage, lipid lowering now ranks as one of the most important reasons to make it a weekly staple for your menu.
