N-3 Long-chain PUFAs Reduce Morbidity Caused by Iron Supplementation

Iron deficiency is a major global public health problem. Iron supplementation can be an effective treatment for iron deficiency. However, concern has been expressed because iron supplementation can also increase morbidity from infection due to the iron dependence for growth of pathogenic organisms. On the other hand, iron is critical for proper immune cell function, and some studies have shown that iron supplementation decreases morbidity from respiratory disease in some populations. Likewise, omega-3 long chain fatty acids, such as eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), are also important in immune function. Increased omega-3 long chain fatty acid intake has been shown in some studies to decrease morbidity. Thus, the question arises whether supplementation with omega-3 long chain fatty acids can ameliorate the potential negative effects of iron supplementation on morbidity. In a recently published study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, investigators have reported on the findings from an 8.5 month randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial in 321 iron-deficient South African children, aged 6-11 years old, on the separate and combined effects of iron and omega-3 long chain fatty acid supplementation on various infectious illness-related outcomes. Subjects were from 4 primary schools located in a malaria-free rural area … KEEP READING >>
