Fibrinogen is a protein involved in blood clotting. High levels of fibrinogen are associated with an increased risk of heart disease and stroke.

iollo markers that associate with Fibrinogen

Arachidonic acid

Arachidonic acid is a precursor for thromboxane A2 which promotes platelet aggregation and increases fibrinogen levels as part of the clotting cascade.

Docosahexaenoic acid

DHA has anti-inflammatory effects and has been shown to reduce fibrinogen levels, likely by reducing inflammation that triggers clotting.

Eicosapentaenoic acid

EPA, like DHA, has anti-inflammatory properties and has been found to lower fibrinogen concentrations, possibly by a similar mechanism of reducing inflammation.

Palmitic acid

Palmitic acid may increase fibrinogen production in the liver by activating inflammatory pathways and increasing expression of the fibrinogen gene.

Stearic acid

Stearic acid is a saturated fatty acid that may contribute to inflammation and increased fibrinogen synthesis, similar to the effects of palmitic acid.
