Naturally occurring molecule may help prevent and treat atherosclerosis and gum disease

from Boston University School of Medicine via Medical Xpress

Resolvin E1, a molecule produced naturally in the body from an omega-3 fish oil, topically applied on gum tissues not only prevents and treats gum disease as previously shown (Hasturk et al 2006 and 2007), but also decreases the likelihood for advanced arterial atherosclerotic plaques to rupture and form a dangerous thrombus or blood clot. The findings, which appear in the journal Current Atherosclerosis Reports, could lead to effective preventive and therapeutic treatments in people with heart disease and/or gum disease without unwanted side effects. more
