Fascinating new research from the University of Alberta shows that high levels of DHA can help improve memory:
In an animal study, lead researcher Yves Sauve and colleagues discovered mice that consumed a diet high in DHA had 30% higher levels of DHA in the hippocampus region of the brain, compared with mice fed on a regular, healthy diet.
It’s unclear from the article how long these mice were on a DHA-rich diet. But, regardless, it certainly adds to the pool of evidence that high-quality fish oil supplements have many health benefits.
