Nutri-Med Logic Says that Regarding Prostate Health, a Recent Study is Shifting the Focus to Dietary Education.

August 28, 2011

Nutri-Med Logic says that research on an effective dietary education is past due for those with prostate concerns. Currently prostatitis affects around 15% of the men, clinical benign prostate hyperplasia around 20-40% and Prostate cancer remains the most common cancer in men, with the estimated 240,890 new cases and 33,720 deaths for 2011.

Miami, Florida (PRWEB) August 28, 2011

Nutri-Med Logic Corp: The result of the experimental studies by the Health Science Center, a Department of Medicine at the University of Texas, San Antonio, Texas, USA, sheds new light on the benefits of an anti-inflammatory diet, more specifically Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), two Omega-3 fatty acids.

The study suggests that the fatty acids of Omega-6 (found in most food, especially red meat) indeed exacerbates the prostatic condition while Omega-3 would ameliorate.

Omega-6 is a pro-inflammatory polyunsaturated fatty acids and Omega-3 is an anti-inflammatory polyunsaturated fatty acids. The human body is incapable of making either Omega-6 or Omega-3, thus, both are transported to the body through diet (food).

The inflammatory marker used to measure prostatic secretions in men with Prostatisis is called Prostaglandin E2. (PGE-2).

PGE-2 is a derivative of Omega-6.

PGE-2 secretion plays a pivotal role in the inflammation of the prostate. In fact and indeed, PROSTAglandins were named after PROSTAte, initially believing that this local inflammatory agent was only synthesized in the prostate.

Studies have demonstrated that increased levels of PGE(2) activates another inflammatory growth factor called interleukin-6 (IL-6). (4)

The genes expressing IL-6 share a binding site with another protein called Nuclear Factor-IL6 and NF-KB. (5)

NF-kB is the body master switch of inflammation. The hyper-activity of IL-6 will result in hyperactivity of NF-kB, another word excessive inflammation.

Studies by the Department of Experimental Medicine and Oncology, University of Turin, Italy, suggests that NF-kB could be moderated by means of a suitable dietary ratio of Omega-3/Omega-6. (6)

In another word, Omega-3 (anti-inflammatory food) moderates the amounts of Omega-6 (inflammatory food). Omega-6 is found in most food but Omega-3 is mainly found in cold-water fishes.

In addition, EPA and DHA supplementation (Omega-3 diet) have been shown to moderate the synthesis of the prostaglandins type 2, replacing them with prostaglandins type 3, which have anti-inflammatory properties. (7,8)

In conclusion, Nutri-Med Logic Corp agrees with the study of Department of Texas but adds that because the study highlights both Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), the two important Omega-3 fatty acids, then a Balanced Omega-3, having 50% EPA, 50% DHA, without a doubt, should be the Omega-3 of choice for those looking for anti-inflammatory diet.

Nutri-Med Logic Corp is a producer of dietary supplements, including a Concentrated and Balanced Omega-3: having the same concentration of EPA and DHA of Omega-3, 50% – 50%.

DHA of Omega-3, also, offers beneficial properties mainly for the brain, nervous system and EPA of Omega-3, additionally, offers beneficial properties in cardiovascular system.

Nutri-Med Logic’s products are Formulated Based on Nutritional Logic, made from the highest quality raw materials that are manufactured in pharmaceutical facilities, encapsulated in pharmaceutical facilities and, also, packaged in pharmaceutical facilities.
