  • Physics Researchers use Big Red II to Assess Vitamin E’s Ability to Protect Vital Fatty Acids


    Omega-3 polyunsaturated acids (n-3 PUFA) are fatty acids found in fish oils that have multiple health benefits. Various research has shown that dietary consumptions of fish oils can help with cardiovascular diseases, cancer preventions, inflammatory processes, and metabolism improvements. However, it is easy for these fatty acids to be oxidized, and once oxidation happens, health benefits are likely to be lost. Therefore, it is crucial for science to find a way to prevent the oxidation of n-3 PUFA consumed in the diet, and one possible solution is vitamin E.
