Now there’s another reason why you should be getting your daily dose of omega-3. In a study published in the Feb. 28, 2012 issue of the journal Neurology, researchers measured the red blood cell level of omega-3 fatty acids (specifically EPA and DHA) in 1,575 dementia-free people whose average age was 67. About three months later, participants underwent mental-functioning tests and MRI scans that examined brain size and blood supply in the brain. Researchers found that people with the highest blood levels of EPA and DHA were more likely to perform well on tests of mental functioning and to experience less age-related brain shrinkage which is associated with Alzheimer’s Disease.
Brain scans also showed signs of less blood supply in the brains of people with the lowest omega-3 levels. This suggests they may play a role in promoting general vascular health in the brain, similar to how they are thought to help heart health. "We feel fatty-acid consumption exerts a benefcial effect on brain aging by promoting vascular health," said the study’s lead author, Dr. Zaldy Tan, associate professor at the Easton Center for Alzheimer’s Disease Research and the division of geriatrics at the University of California, Los Angeles. "This might include reducing blood pressure and inflammation," he added.
