Researchers report omega-3 fatty acids reduced brain damage in mouse models of stoke.
A new study adds to growing evidence that your diet can have significant impact on your mental health. Researchers found people who consumed more fast foods had higher rates of depression than those who consumed a seafood rich diet.
Researchers discover that, in addition to their other health benefits, Omega-3 fatty acids play a vital role in protecting the integrity of the blood-brain barrier.
Adding a lysophospholipid form of EPA, LPC-EPA, to the diet increased omega 3 fatty acid levels up to 100 fold in the brains of mice, researchers report. The amount required for the boost in Omega 3 levels is less than a milligram a day. In humans, researchers report, the equivalent is less than a quarter of a gram of LPC-EPA per day to have the same effect.
Researchers from NTNU find new evidence of how omega 3 fatty acids can dampen inflammatory reactions in the body.
