According to a recent small study, omega-3 supplements are able to stabilize memory function in people with Alzheimer’s. The study examined the effect of omega-3 fatty acids on memory by conducting memory test and testing the spinal fluid both at the start of the study and after 6 months. It turned out that the memory function of the group who had taken omega-3, was stable, whereas in the control group without omega-3 supplements it deteriorated. There were no differences in the various biomarkers in the spinal fluid samples between these 2 groups, but there was an increase of 2 of the markers that are related to damaged nerve cells in the group with omega-3 supplements.
The researchers are cautious about giving recommendations based on the results of their study. However, they advise to stay physically active and to include omega-3 in the diet, either in dietary form (think of oily fish) or as supplements.
