DHA treatment reduced the size of the damaged brain area and initiated a repair mechanism in animal models of stroke. DHA affected the levels of MANF and TREM2, two proteins critical for communication between brain cells.
Researchers add to evidence that omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids promote health brain aging.
Researchers from NTNU find new evidence of how omega 3 fatty acids can dampen inflammatory reactions in the body.
UCSF has completed the first internet based clinical trial for children with autism.
People with lower EPA and DHA in red blood cell membranes, which correlates to lower scores on the Omega-3 index, were found to have an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and ultimately a decrease in lifespan compared to those who scored higher on the omega-3 index.
Researchers report antioxidant supplements and amino acids, such as Taurine, can help to reduce symptoms of psychosis.
Taking omega-3 supplements may help to reduce muscle soreness following exercise. Researchers found omega-3 reduced inflammation and decreased muscle damage post exercise.
Small scale study reveals Omega 3 supplements stabilized memory function in adults with Alzheimer's disease. Those who did not take omega-3 supplements showed a deterioration in memory function.
DHA may be more effective at reducing chronic inflammation than EPA.
Adolescents with higher levels of Omega 3 fatty acids in their blood had a decreased risk of developing psychosis as they entered into early adulthood. At the age of 24, those with psychosis had lower levels of DHA than those without the disorder.
At age ten, children whose mothers took fish oil supplements during pregnancy were more efficient at problem-solving tasks and had better attentional focus than those whose mothers just took folic acid or no supplements at all.
