CSIRO Nutrition Trials
The CSIRO nutrition clinic's research addresses the nutritional aspects and genetic determinants of some of Australia's major health concerns. CSIRO's nutrition trials using volunteers provide a better understanding of the role of foods and food components in a healthy diet and can lead to changes in intake recommendations or industry practices.
Adelaide: SAHMRI (SA)
CSIRO research at the SAHMRI facility encompasses food and nutritional sciences and clinical and community studies, which include trials conducted at the nutrition and health research clinic.

Fish oils help keep the heart running smoothly
CSIRO studies have shown that omega-3 fatty acids protect against heart rhythm disorders. They also appear to have additional favourable effects on blood vessel function. Three to five fish meals per week should provide a useful amount of omega-3.
The low incidence of heart disease in communities with a fish-based diet led CSIRO researchers to investigate omega-3 fatty acids.
Fish oils for good health
Healthy fish oils, also known as long chain omega-3 fatty acids, have earned the reputation as one of the best bioactives yet discovered.
