Conclusion*

 

“The beneficial effects of fish oil on the incidence of preeclampsia are supported by observational studies and 1 large, uncontrolled early trial.”

Three randomized trials “reveal no reduction in the incidence of preeclampsia in the fish oil group.”

N

n-3 PUFA-enriched eggs:

flaxseed added to hens’ diet

350 mg n-3 PUFA/60 g egg

0.25 g LA, 0.10 g DHA/60 g egg

1 egg/day for 6 days and no eggs on day 7

Conventional eggs:

60 mg of n-3 PUFA/60 g egg

0.04 g LA, 0.02 g DHA/60 g egg

1 egg/day for 6 days and no eggs on day 7

LA, DHA, and total n-3 dietary intake of those randomized to n-3 PUFA-enriched egg treatment were significantly higher than at baseline and compared to the conventional egg treatment (p<0.05).

There were no significant differences in serum total cholesterol, LDL-C and HDL-C in physically active adults from baseline to end of treatment or between groups.

Serum triglycerides were significantly higher with n-3 PUFA-enriched egg treatment than those from baseline and compared to the conventional egg treatment (p<0.05).

N/A

Cod-liver oil group:

10 mL/day

Corn oil group:

10 mL/day

“The pressure increase was significant in both groups, but no significant differences in the constrictory response or in the proportions of preparations displaying dilatatory responses were observed when compared to appropriate control groups.”

“Neither preeclampsia nor dietary supplementation with cod-liver oil had any significant effect on the vasoactive response to PGF2α in umbilical cord arteries.”
