Another Great Catch
The discovered health benefits of fish oil are ever-growing. The growing body of research on omega-3 fatty acids never disappoints. Fish oil from fish or supplements has recently been shown to protect from loss of precious brain cells during aging.
A study published in the journal Neurology followed the omega-3 intake and brain volume of more than a thousand older women. The results are more promising than ever because of the objective evidence—brain scans. Unlike questionnaires and memory tests, these results are solid, tangible, and less skewed.
MRI scans of study members revealed a greater brain volume in participants who had two times more omega-3 fatty acid intake and blood levels than the other members. According to the researchers, a 0.7% higher brain volume was observed. This is equivalent to delaying brain cell loss by 1-2 years!
Interestingly, the greater brain volume was located in the hippocampus, an area of the brain associated with memory formation, emotions, and learning. This is also the area where Alzheimer’s disease attacks first.
How can you boost your intake of omega-3 fatty acids? Fish such as salmon, mackerel, herring, and tuna are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids.
