Omega 3 lipids are beneficial nutrients that promote healthy cardiovascular function, counters hyperlipidemia (for example, excess triglycerides) and hypertension, improves joint health, and modulates inflammation. In addition, it has been demonstrated that during pregnancy and seniority, there is an important role for Omega 3s to help protect brain and vision development.
Lipid scientists investigated the effects of fish oil on the vascular structure in hypertensive subjects with cardiovascular disease afflicted with hypertriglycidemia. 29 subjects with elevaed triglycerides (150-499 mg/dL) were randomized and the experimental group was to receive 1800 mg of fish oil per day for an eight week period. Subjects that received fish oil demonstrated pulse wave velocity reduction (10.4 ± 0.4 to 9.4 ± 0.3 m/s, P < .05) and flow-mediated dilation increase (11.1 ± 1.6 to 13.5 ± 1.2%, P < .05). These results demonstrated that Omega 3 fish oils improved endothelial function and arterial stiffness, indicating an improvement in vascular circulatory function. View research
Fish oil is well known to affect biomarkers associated with inflammation. In one study, scientists evaluated the effects fish oil on patients in secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease (CVD). This cross-sectional analysis of 364 subjects with established CVD were cross=checked with lipid intake to assess its impact on inflammatory biomarkers interleukin (IL)-1β, IL-6, IL-8, IL-10, IL-12, C-reactive protein, adiponectin, and tumor necrosis factor-α. The results demonstrated that PUFAs including Omega 3 and Omega 6 were inversely associated with C-reactive protein levels (P = 0.006) and with IL-1 β. This indicates that Omega 3 intakes are inversely related to inflammatory biomarkers among CVD patients. View research
In terms of structure and function, it is well established that Omega 3 fatty acids are essential for brain function. Scientists in Australia conducted a study on 409 students aged 3-13 years in a randomized, controlled trial. The treatment group received 750 mg of EPA/DHA plus 60 mg GLA for 20 weeks followed by a one-way crossover to just fish oil. The treatment group demonstrated improvements in Draw-A-Person (a variety of assessments of reading, spelling and non-verbal cognitive development) compared to placebo. Furthermore, the treatment group with strongest effects were the 7-12 year old (p=0.008). When the placebo group switch to treatment group, there were significant improvements also noted.

In terms of structure and function, it is known that Omega 3 fatty acids, in particular DHA is a major component of the retina. Dry Eyes (DE) is common ocular disturbance that affects - depending on age group - upto 34% of the population. It is marked by burning, scratchy eye sensation, stinging, eye fatigue and sensitivity to light, to name a few symptoms. IT is one of the most common pathologies that affects the eyes. In this present study, it was demonstrated that after surgery, a combination of factors, including pigment epithelial derived factor (PEDF) and DHA Omega 3 are very important in preventing serious consequences of dry eye, epithelial erosion and corneal ulcerations.
