Higher omega 3 levels linked to improved brain blood flow
May 24 2017. The June 2017 issue of the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease featured an article by Daniel G. Amen, MD, of the Amen Clinics, Inc., and his colleagues that documents an association between higher levels of omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acid levels and increased blood flow in three areas of the brain’s cerebrum.
The study included 166 participants seen at a psychiatric clinic, who had data available concerning blood levels of the omega 3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) imaging of the brain was conducted to assess blood flow in 128 brain regions. Neurocognitive status was evaluated via standard computerized testing.
