Recent Highlights

New insights into DHA homeostasis during age-related cognitive decline

brain, cognitive decline, nutrition, DHA, omega-3, Alzheimers

Higher intakes of omega-3 fatty acids are associated with a lower risk of Alzheimer's disease. However, omega-3 supplementation trials in Alzheimer's disease patients failed to delay the progression of cognitive decline suggesting that omega-3 fatty acids are likely a preventative measure rather than therapeutic molecules.

The physico-chemical basis of phenolic antioxidant activity

phenolics, antioxidants

This Feature discusses the complexity of factors determining the antioxidant activity of phenolics. Are reducers necessarily antioxidants? When studying the quantitative structure-activity relationship, do we take into account the antioxidant activity of the oxidation product(s) of phenolics? How can we predict antioxidant activity in natural multiphasic systems if most of the studies come from artificial homogenous solutions?
