Trident Brands has committed to fund a research trial examining the effect of Omega 3s (DHA -Docosahexaenoic acid) on head trauma in elite Women's & Men's Canadian rugby athletes during the current 2017-2018 season that includes the HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series, Commonwealth Games, Sevens World Cup, and Men's Rugby World Cup qualifier. Brain Armor Inc. (a subsidiary of Trident Brands Inc.) is providing funding through its Brain Armor Foundation. The principal study investigators are Ashley Armstrong, MS, RD, CSSD and Jonathan M. Oliver, PhD.
Ms. Armstrong is a Sport Dietitian with the Canadian Sport Institute Pacific. Dr. Oliver is Director of the Sports Concussion Research Group at Texas Christian University (TCU). "This is an exciting collaboration between the Canadian Sport Institute Pacific and TCU to expand their concussion research to an elite rugby population," said Ms. Armstrong, who has been a Sport Dietitian at the Canadian Sport Institute Pacific for four years. "We are very grateful to Brain Armor, who is supporting our research, as we believe that this study can truly benefit athletes in all sports at risk of head injuries. Their support of this DHA - focused, new dietary intervention will allow us to help athletes protect their greatest asset --their brain," said Ms. Armstrong.
"We are excited about the opportunity to work with the Canadian Sport Institute, a world-class athlete development program, and the partnership with Brain Armor, who has graciously agreed to support our research expanding into other contact sport athletes. This research expands on the previous work conducted by our group, in which we demonstrated a potential neuroprotective effect of omega 3s in attenuating elevations of a biomarker of head trauma in response to sub-concussive injuries in American football athletes. Reducing the effects of sub-concussive injuries may have long-term implications on improved brain health later in life, particularly in contact sports athletes, an area that has received considerable media attention in retired National Football League players," said Dr. Oliver, who is director of the Sport Science Center within the Health Innovations Institute at Texas Christian University. "This study is part of the Brain Armor Foundation's commitment to supporting and advancing education and clinical research in the field of cognitive health in athletes," states Dr. Julian E. Bailes, Co - Chair of the Brain Armor Foundation.
