Blutdrucksenkung durch Fischöl

The antihypertensive effects of fish oil. A controlled study of polyunsaturated fatty acid supplements in essential hypertension.

Diese Studie untersuchte, ob durch die Zufuhr von hochdosiertem Fischöl der Blutdruck gesenkt werden kann.
An der Studie nahmen 32 Männer mit mittelschwerem Bluthochdruck teil, die in vier Gruppen eingeteilt wurden.
Die einzelnen Gruppen erhielten entweder 10 ml Fischöl, 50 ml Fischöl, 50 ml Distelöl oder 50 ml von einer Kombination verschiedener Öle, die den Fettanteil der üblichen amerikanischen Ernährung enthielt.
Die Resultate zeigten, dass die hochdosierte Fischöl Zufuhr bei den Patienten zur Blutdrucksenkung beitrugt.

The force with which blood is pressed against blood vessel walls represents the measurable blood pressure. The level of our blood pressure is directly dependent on various factors, in particular on the pumping force of the heart, the blood volume, and the elasticity of the blood vessels. Hypertension is a chronic medical condition in which the blood pressure in the arteries is persistently elevated. It can be caused by a too strong pumping function of the heart – which generally leads to an increased upper (systolic) blood pressure value. More frequently, the lower (diastolic) blood pressure value is elevated, a condition that is generally caused by a “spasm” (contraction) of the (smooth) muscle cells of the artery walls, causing the narrowing of the blood vessel diameter and the rise of the (diastolic) pressure. The most frequent cause of this artery spasm is a chronic deficiency of micronutrients in billions of artery wall cells. If high blood pressure conditions persist for a long time, they can lead to damage in other organs, including strokes, coronary heart disease, failure of the kidneys, eyes and other organs.
