Low levels of Omega-3 fatty acids may cause memory problems

According to Qponics Limited (ASSOB: QPO) a diet lacking in the omega-3 fatty acids commonly found in fish, fish oil and algae oil, may cause your brain to age faster and lose some of its memory and thinking abilities, according to a study published in the February 28, 2012 issue of the medical journal Neurology.

"People with lower blood levels of omega-3 fatty acids had lower brain volumes that were equivalent to about two years of structural brain aging," said study author Dr Zaldy S. Tan of the Easton Center for Alzheimer's Disease Research,
University of California at Los Angeles.

For the study, 1,575 people with an average age of 67 and free of dementia underwent MRI brain scans. They were also given tests that measured mental function, body mass and the omega-3 fatty acid levels in their red blood cells.

The researchers found that people whose DHA levels were among the bottom 25 percent of the participants had lower brain volume compared to people who had higher DHA levels. Similarly, participants with levels of all omega-3 fatty acids in
the bottom 25 percent also scored lower on tests of visual memory and executive function, such as problem solving and multi-tasking and abstract thinking.

Qponics is actively developing a novel aquaponic system to grow algae for the organic production of oil high in EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids.

Bantix announces revolutionary powerless refrigeration unit

Bantix Worldwide Limited (ASSOB: BTX), an Australian innovation and technology Company, reports that they have developed a powerless refrigeration unit for the portable consumer refrigeration market.

Managing Director Mr Andrew Coventry says the device is targeted at the global consumer market for convenient, portable and affordable refrigeration, such as “eskies” and other cooling boxes. The technology, which is the subject of a provisional patent application, has been perfected after many years of experimentation and is safe, convenient and environmentally friendly.

“The unit is unique in that it can operate at ambient temperatures in excess of 45C whilst maintaining a refrigerating temperature of between 0 and 5 degrees. It can also be used as a freezer and the unit is fully adjustable via an ingenious new control system that requires no electricity or batteries.”

“Consumers will no longer have to lug heavy, ineffective and space robbing ice in their cooling units and put up with soggy perishables and damp unhygienic conditions to store food and other sensitive items. In fact, not only is it a major step forward in technology and convenience for the market, it is more cost effective than ice” says Mr Coventry.

In other news, Mr Coventry has also announced that M-Tech International Pty Ltd, a fully owned subsidiary of Bantix, has been successful in receiving an order to supply Sir Richard Branson’s Make Peace Island with mosquito traps to protect their guests. Furthermore, two resorts in Port Macquarie have also ordered the industry leading traps after successful testing, reports the Company.

Omega-3 could prevent & treat nerve damage

According to Qponics Limited (ASSOB: QPO) research released on the 11th January from Queen Mary University of London suggests that EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids found in fish and algal oil, could play a significant role in speeding recovery from nerve damage caused by accident or injury.

The study in mice focused on peripheral nerve cells, which transmit signals between the brain and the rest of the body. However, despite advances in surgical techniques, patients usually only have good recovery when their injury is minor.

Researchers simulated the type of damage caused by accident or injury, by either stretching nerve cells or starving them of oxygen, which killed a significant number of nerve cells. Increasing omega-3 fatty acid levels in cells gave them significant protection and decreased cell death. They also found that a high level of omega-3 fatty acids helped mice to recover from nerve injury more quickly and that their muscles were less likely to waste following nerve damage.

Qponics is actively developing a novel aquaponic system to grow algae for the production of algal oil high in EPA and DHA omega-3 fatty acids.
