The online medical journal PLoS One in October 2012 found for the first time scientists have studied the effects of Omega-3 supplementation on young adults (ages 18-25). After 6 months of supplementation, subjects were able to improve their working memory (used for reason and comprehension) despite the belief that, at their age, they were operating at their cognitive best.
I have been a long time advocate of supplementing Omega 3 fatty acids from pregnancy all the way till death. They are highly anti-inflammatory and your brain and rest of your nervous system is largely made of up these essential fatty acids. The problem is fish is the most efficient and BEST source but I do not advocate eating ANY seafood due to environmental mercury toxicity. So what is one to do? The only solution that will work is a pharmaceutical grade prepared fish oil supplement. They key is to find it cold pressed, always refrigerated, and toxin free. Here at WellnessOne we carry the "best you can get" liquid form of fish oil from Metagenics. 1 teaspoon per day is all you need and the taste is 90% lemon. Come by and ask for a sample taste!
Have a blessed day!
