Long chain n-3 PUFA-rich meal reduced postprandial measures of arterial stiffness.

Abstract

BACKGROUND & AIMS The consumption of long chain n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (LC n-3 PUFA) is known to be cardio-protective. Data on the influence of LC n-3 PUFA on arterial stiffness in the postprandial state is limited. The aim of this study was to investigate the acute effects of a LC n-3 PUFA-rich meal on measures of arterial stiffness. METHODS… (More)
