Studies show that omega-3 fatty acids are beneficial for heart health, helping to lower blood pressure and triglyceride levels. Also, thanks to these substances in the body, the level of “good” cholesterol rises.
Also in a study at the University of Northumbria, scientists found that fish oil, rich in omega-3, has a positive effect on thinking ability. That is, the blood flow to the active areas of the brain during the execution of intellectual tasks was better. Similar results indicate that taking these supplements or consuming oily fish regularly can prevent the onset of dementia and cognitive decline.
In addition, staff at Chi-Mei Medical Center in Taiwan noted that fatty acids are molecules that significantly affect the brain’s ability to function. And researchers from the American organization DSM Nutritional Products added that taking omega-3s has many positive effects and affects cognitive abilities.
