Fatty Fish, Foods Rich In Omega-3s Protect Against Alzheimer’s
Yet another study has found eating foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids helps protect the brain and may reduce the likelihood of developing cognitive impairment or Alzheimer’s disease. In the newly published study, researchers found levels of a protein known as Beta-amyloid were lower in the blood of people whose diet was rich in omega-3s. Beta-amyloids are commonly found in the brains of people with Alzheimer’s disease and high levels of the protein are suspected to be an indicator of future memory problems. The researchers said that even a small increase in consumption of omega-3s led to lower beta-amyloid levels. More here.
