Supplementing the Diet with SPMs


1. Insights from the Metagenics Lifestyle Summit 2015 in Phoenix, AZ: Charles Serhan, PhD

If already taking fish oils, is there a need to supplement with specialized pro-resolving mediators (SPMs)?

In this video, Dr. Charles Serhan presents insights on inflammation from the Metagenics Lifestyle Summit in September 2015. Dr. Serhan is a distinguished researcher and professor at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, MA.

Dr. Serhan cites his research to answer a variety of questions on the advantages of supplementing the diet with specialized pro-resolving mediators (SPMs). Even if a patient already takes fish oil, adding SPMs helps to support the resolution pathway to resolve inflammation.

Supplementing the diet with SPMs can be very helpful to improve health outcomes, but additional randomized controlled trials are needed. Those results should be available soon, now that an SPM product has been launched.
