The First Randomized Controlled Trial of Purified Palmitoleic Acid Supplementation in Humans March 09, 2015 13:09

Purified palmitoleic acid (16-1; omega-7), the power behind Cardia 7, has some exciting new study results and conclusions:

 

  • Exerts potent anti-inflammatory and lipid-modulating effects compared with placebo.
  • Appears to be important in regulating metabolism.
  • May be useful in the treatment of hypertriglyceridemia with the beneficial added effects of decreasing LDL and hs-CRP and raising HDL.

The report of a study by Drs. Michael F. Roizen, MD and Adam M. Bernstein MD of the Wellness Institute of the Cleveland Clinic, “Purified palmitoleic acid for the reduction of high-sensitivity C-reactive protein and serum lipids: A double-blinded, randomized, placebo controlled study” is featured in the online September issue of the Journal of Clinical Lipidology and the October print version. http://www.lipidjournal.com/article/S1933-2874%2814%2900281-5/pdf

“These findings build on a growing body of in vitro, animal, and human studies, demonstrating the importance of palmitoleic acid to regulating metabolism. Thus, purified palmitoleic may be a therapeutic approach in helping maintain lipid levels within a healthy range as well as improving inflammatory markers in patients with mild dyslipidemia and inflammation,” state Drs. Roizen and Bernstein in their conclusions.
