Cazzola R., Rondanelli M., Russo Volpe S., Barzaghi E., Ferrari E., Cestaro B.
Background. To investigate the effects of a hypocaloric balanced diet therapy and a supplementation with antioxidant and w-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids on the oxidative balance and erythrocytes membrane fluidity status.
Methods. A randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of the association between a hypocaloric balanced diet therapy and a supplementation with antioxidant and w-3 was done on 40 women with 25
Conclusions. The correlations found between the above parameters and the blood chemistry and anthropometrics variables suggest that the supplementation with antioxidant and w-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids could ameliorate the effects of hypocaloric diet on the obesity treatment and may give some clinical benefit through the decrease of the values of atherosclerosis risk factors.
