New Research Links Fish Oil Supplements with Preventing Alzheimer's DiseasePrint
Though known for being good for the heart, a new study conducted at the Rhode Island Hospital indicates that fish oil may also be very good for the mind.
The results of the study, published in the Alzheimer’s & Dementia journal, found that people taking daily fish oil supplements showed significantly lower rates of cognitive decline than those not taking a daily fish oil supplement.
The four year study consisted of a group of 819 older adults with varying degrees of cognitive capability: normal cognitive function, mild cognitive impairment, and Alzheimer’s disease. The benefits of taking fish oil appeared strongest in the group with normal cognitive functioning which means the sooner you start, the better!
Lowering the risk of Alzheimer’s is critical as there is no known cure for the disease. It is estimated that more than 5 million people in the USA have Alzheimer’s disease which is the sixth leading cause of death.
