Recently, the journal called Neurology published a report about the positive effects of DHA (omega 3) on brain volume and memory in older men and women.
The researchers measured red blood cell omega 3 levels in over 1500 dementia-free individuals. MRI assessed brain volume and cognitive tests were also taken, evaluating memory.
Researchers concluded that a low DHA level correlated with reduced memory, brain volume in general, visual memory and abstract thinking.
Doc’s Note: DHA also has the added benefit of lowering blood pressure, triglycerides, cholesterol and reduced risk of blood clots. It is an excellent substance for overall health.
