Beneficial Affects Monounsaturated Fatty Acids From Fish Oil Shown On Mice

May 31, 2011: 10:10 AM EST
A study on mice demonstrated the benefit of monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs) in lowering metabolic syndrome risk.  Researchers divided male mice into a control group that was fed a 32% lard diet and another group fed with 27% lard and 5% saury-oil-derived MUFA rich in C20:1 and C22:1 isomers diet for six weeks. Results show mice fed with the MUFA diet had better insulin resistance, with metabolic syndrome risk factors lessened by decreasing blood glucose and lipids. Improvement in adipocytokine profile may account for these beneficial changes.
