Fish oil linked to Alzheimer’s prevention

Like any other disease process, Alzheimer’s is just that – a process; conditions are most likely set into motion years before overt symptoms occur. Researchers are gathering evidence that suggest there is a link between restoring fatty acids and Alzheimer's prevention.

Controlled studies have revealed that patients with Alzheimer’s disease often show key deficiencies of
fatty acids, and restoring fatty acids to optimal levels improves many of the debilitating symptoms of the disease, including: mood swings, sleep problems, and short-term memory loss.

Scientists have recently added to this body of knowledge, reporting they
have discovered how fatty acids found in fish oil help protect the human brain from the type of cognitive
decline associated with Alzheimer’s disease.
