A New Zealand-sourced, omega-3-rich food for reducing markers of inflammation
This project explores the potential anti-inflammatory benefits of a new omega-3-rich food developed by New Zealand oil refiner, SeaDragon.
Excess and unresolved inflammation play a key role in many chronic diseases like cardiovascular disease, arthritis, and diabetes. This project will explore in a clinical study whether consuming an omega-3-rich food product every day will reduce inflammation.
This research builds on High-Value Nutrition’s objective to demonstrate the health benefits of certain New Zealand foods to a global market.
The research team includes leading academics across multiple fields and institutes. They will work with industry partner SeaDragon to ensure this project is well-designed and executed.
Research outcomes will be presented internationally to raise awareness of the anti-inflammatory benefits of this New Zealand-based food product. This will provide an exciting opportunity to convey the product’s ability to decrease systemic inflammation and improve consumers’ health and wellbeing across the world.
