One of the contributing factors in Alzheimer’s is the accumulation of nerve tangles, called amyloid plague, in the brain. Preliminary research shows that DHA might help prevent these tangles by up to 40%. DHA also improves cell-to-cell communication, nerve chemical release and nerve conduction, all of which allow brain cells to effectively send messages to each other. Study compared the dietary habits of 800 men and women between the ages of 65 and 94 years old. They found that those who included omega-3s in their weekly diets were significantly less likely to develop Alzheimer’s compared to those who consumed few or no omega-3s. now you know why you should make sure to get enough DHA every day!
