Release the pressure of consistently creating new quality content every week with the Health scoop.

Your clients and patients want to be healthier, right? And they know that food is essential to good health. But, what really are the connections that they need to see?

A recent study systematically reviewed 16 other studies to determine which dietary patterns (not just foods, but dietary patterns) are linked with inflammation, and was the first one to review these links!

By framing disease risk through the lens of inflammation and overall diet, we can better equip your clients and patients to understand and make the food-health link so that they can be knowledgeable and empowered to choose an anti-inflammatory diet.

Introducing a done-for-you pre-written Health scoop (new study update) to share this information with your clients and patients along with a few practical tips.

English, C. J., Mayr, H. L., Lohning, A. E., & Reidlinger, D. P. (2021). The association between dietary patterns and the novel inflammatory markers platelet-activating factor and lipoprotein-associated phospholipase A2: a systematic review. Nutrition reviews, nuab051. Advance online publication. https://doi.org/10.1093/nutrit/nuab051

About the study (these details aren’t included in the client/patient-friendly Scoop, it’s for your info as a research-based health professional):

  • “To our knowledge, this is the first systematic review to explore the association between dietary patterns, beyond the Mediterranean Diet, and the novel biomarkers PAF and Lp-PLA2.” 
  • Note that systematic reviews are very strong studies because of the high standards for searching for, including, and analyzing studies that are included.
  • Most studies of inflammation and nutrition have looked at the immediate impact (e.g., blood levels of inflammatory markers) of individual foods. This one looked at studies done on inflammation and dietary patterns, not individual foods.
  • “This review was comprehensive and systematic; however, the analysis is limited by the small number of studies adhering to the inclusion criteria assessing dietary patterns and these novel biomarkers.” Basically, because of their strong criteria to select studies, and how novel these biomarkers are, there weren’t too many studies available to include, so more research is needed in this area.
  • Some nerdy insight into Lp-PLA2: This biomarker is an enzyme that can break down inflammatory PAF and seems to be protective when bound to the “good” cholesterol HDL. But, despite these anti-inflammatory roles, Lp-PLA2 seems to also promote harmful inflammation and oxidation and is considered to be a risk factor for atherosclerosis, heart disease, and stroke. Unfortunately, Lp-PLA2 tips more toward inflammation than anti-inflammation, so overall, it is considered to be a biomarker of inflammation.    
  • Conclusion: “There is limited evidence and considerable diversity in existing studies investigating dietary patterns and the novel inflammatory markers PAF and Lp-PLA2. A range of well-established dietary patterns has potential to improve these novel markers, including Mediterranean, vegetarian, and other heart-healthy dietary patterns. Conversely, Western dietary patterns are associated with higher levels of inflammation, as measured by these markers. More, well-designed studies are needed to confirm these findings and identify other dietary patterns that could positively affect inflammation.”
  • Note that all studies have limitations. In this study, because they are looking at novel/new/uncommon biomarkers (PAF and Lp-PLA2), they only found 16 studies to consider. The researchers recommend that more studies are done looking at these two biomarkers, and also that new studies be larger than the ones they’ve found.
  • Also, because PAF and Lp-PLA2 are novel biomarkers, there isn’t too much known about the “normal” concentrations of them in healthy people. This makes it hard to determine which levels are considered to be “high” or “low” so these can be effectively used. More research is needed on the normal levels and functions of PAF and Lp-PLA2.
  • Overall, we can’t say that the Mediterranean/vegetarian/heart healthy diet prevents/treats inflammation-based diseases, we can say that Mediterranean/vegetarian/heart healthy diets appear to reduce biomarkers of inflammation which may lower the risk for many chronic diseases or that  Mediterranean/vegetarian/heart healthy diets are linked with lower levels of inflammation (correlation does not equal causation). Here’s a blog post I wrote on this concept: https://leesaklich.com/health-research/correlation-does-not-equal-causation/
  • Study strength is rated a 7/7 according to this chart (systematic review study), but it’s only based on 16 studies and more research is needed: https://www.compoundchem.com/2015/04/09/scientific-evidence/
