An influence of fish oils (rich in eicosapentaenoic acid, EPA) in modulating (a) the development of hypertension in the stroke prone spontaneously hypertensive rat (SHRSP) and (b) vascular neuroeffector mechanisms in the SHRSP was explored. Rats (SHRSP) were placed on a series of diets for a period of 13 weeks from 4 weeks of age. The fatty acid composition… CONTINUE READING
