A team of academic researchers has pinpointed how vitamin D3 and omega-3 fatty acids may enhance the immune system's ability to clear the brain of amyloid plaques, one of the hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease.
A new study just published in the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry appears to be the first to provide what the researchers call "unequivocal evidence that omega-3s reduce cancer risk."
Wading through the varied sources on omega-3 clinical trials and lab research can lead into a labyrinth of contradictions. One study even claims there are no cardiac benefits from omega-3.
While Omega-3 essential fatty acids—found in foods like wild fish and grass-fed livestock—are necessary for human body functioning, their effects on the working memory of healthy young adults have not been studied until now.
Taking enough omega-3 fatty acid supplements to change the balance of oils in the diet could slow a key biological process linked to aging, new research suggests.
Previously, a number of studies have suggested that dietary supplementation of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids exert a number of cardiovascular and circulatory benefits.
