  • Fish oil supplements, APOE E4 allele carriers and Alzheimer's disease risk reduction

    Hello,

    I just read the below referenced recent paper and thought that it was interesting. The author posits a biological mechanism for why DHA in fish oil supplements are not particularly effective for APOE E4 allele carriers in Alzheimer's disease reduction due to differences in the BBB (blood brain barrier) between APOE E4 allele carriers and non-APOE E4 allele carriers. The author's recommendation for those APOE E4 allele carriers is to consume DHA in a phospholipid form, such as whole salmon, salmon roe or krill oil.

    That's a very interesting post. Thank you. Rhonda Patrick has an active, solid YT channel - with similar focus points. She gets a little more into genetic analyses. And less on Insulin Resistance and CV inflammation.
