Omega-3’s and Alzheimer’s
Considerable research has been poured into trying to understand the mechanisms behind Alzheimer’s disease, and how it might be prevented. We have reported on several of these that are centered on nutrition. One of these was a study conducted on mice, but now a human-based study supports those results. The research, published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, found that blood flow was higher in specific areas of the brain for individuals with higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids. This is important for anti-amyloid, anti-tau and anti-inflammatory functions that can prevent cognitive decline. Overall, this confirms the importance of sufficient omega-3’s (most notably found in fatty fish) in the diet.
If you want to increase your omega-3 fatty acid consumption (without the potential of heavy metals in fish) consider supplementation, including the concentrated, purified one we offer.
