Aging, cognitive decline, apolipoprotein E and docosahexaenoic acid metabolism
Au Canada, 17 millions d’adultes âgés entre 30–64 ans pourraient bénéficier d’une intervention en prévention pour diminuer leur risque de développer la maladie d’Alzheimer (MA). L’un des groupes les plus à risque de ...
Eicosapentaenoic acid decreases postprandial β-hydroxybutyrate and free fatty acid responses in healthy young and elderly
Other titre : Eicosapentaenoic acid decreases postprandial beta-hydroxybutyrate and free fatty acid responses in healthy young and elderly
Objectives: We investigated whether a dietary supplement rich in eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) increases fasting plasma ketones or postprandial ketone responses in healthy young and elderly subjects. Methods: Ten young ...
Omega-3 PUFA metabolism and brain modifications during aging
In Canada, 5.5 million (16% of Canadians) adults are >65 years old and projections suggest this number will be approximately 20% of Canadians by 2024. A major concern regarding old age is a decline in health, especially ...
Higher plasma n-3 fatty acid status in the moderately healthy elderly in southern Québec: higher fish intake or aging-related change in n-3 fatty acid metabolism?
Other titre : Plasma n-3 fatty acids in the elderly
The elderly reportedly have a significantly higher % of eicosapentaenoic (EPA) and docosahexaenoic (DHA) acids in plasma and red cell lipids. However, these observations are from a few small studies and the health status ...
Can we improve pain and sleep in elderly individuals with transcranial direct current stimulation? : results from a randomized controlled pilot study
Abstract : Background: The prevalence of chronic pain and sleep disturbances substantially increases with age. Pharmacotherapy remains the primary treatment option for these health issues. However, side effects and drug ...
High- and low-frequency transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation does not reduce experimental pain in elderly individuals
Abstract : Despite its widespread clinical use, the efficacy of transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) remains poorly documented in elderly individuals. In this randomized, double-blind crossover study, we ...
Does age affect the relationship between pain and disability? : a descriptive study in individuals suffering from chronic low back pain
Abstract : Background: Previous studies have revealed a weak to moderate relationship between pain and disability in individuals suffering from low back pain (LBP). However, to our knowledge, no studies have evaluated if ...
Fish, docosahexaenoic acid and Alzheimer’s disease
Cognitive decline in the elderly, particularly Alzheimer’s disease (AD), is a major socio-economic and healthcare concern. We review here the literature on one specific aspect of diet affecting AD, that of the ω3 fatty ...
Challenges to determining whether DHA can protect against age-related cognitive decline
DHA, an omega-3 fatty acid, is an important constituent of brain membranes and has a key role in brain development and function. This review aims to highlight recent research on DHA’s role during age-related cognitive ...
Relationships between physical activity across lifetime and health outcomes in older adults: results from the NuAge study
Other titre : Relationships between physical activity across lifetime and health outcomes in older adults: Results from the NuAge cohort
Abstract: Objectives: This study aims to (1) describe participation in four physical activity (PA) domains across life and (2) examine the influence of PA during adolescence, early, mid-life, and later adulthood on health ...
