Low Blood Levels Of Omega-3 Linked to Smaller Brain Volume

Omega-3 fatty acids contribute greatly to brain health.

What does low brain volume mean?

Lower cerebral volume suggests less blood flow and potential vascular damage.

Your diet truly can help your cognition.

Try adding supplements to your diet and also including more fish like salmon and sardines to boost your stores of Omega-3.

People in the lowest one-quarter for omega-3 levels had significantly lower total cerebral brain volume than those in the highest one-quarter, even after adjusting for age, body mass index, smoking and other factors. They also performed significantly worse on tests of visual memory, executive function and abstract memory than those in the highest one-quarter. There was no significant association with white matter hyperintensity volume.
