Regular intake of fish oil and weight training is said to be quite effective in preserving the muscle strength among the elderly, says a study being taken out by a group of researchers from the University of Aberdeen.
It was a small pilot study, which has concluded that fish oils improve muscle strength and when combined with weight training, then its effect gets increased even more. In order to reach at the above given result, an experiment was carried out in which women volunteers above 65 years were enrolled.
The group was divided into two sub-groups, said Dr. Stuart Gray, from the University of Aberdeen. The first sub-group was given regular fish oil in combination with weight training and other sub-group was asked to be regular for weight training.
The experiment continued for 12-week period and it was found that the group, which took fish oil as well as performed weight training, was able to improve their muscle strength by 20%. However, the other group, which only performed weight training, was only able to improve their muscle strength by 11%.
“We hope that providing new mechanistic insights into the benefits of fish oil on muscles could lead to the development of new pharmacological treatments”, said Dr. Gray.
