Better memory with DHA
Men and women show improvement in brain function and episodic memory
by Newsletter Editor
Omega-3 DHA improved memory in women and men. In the study, 176 non-smokers, aged 18 to 45, with low DHA from diet, took a placebo or 1,160 mg of DHA per day. After six months, compared to placebo, memory improved in both men and women taking DHA. Women had the most improvement in remembering times, places, and emotions—brain functions known as episodic memory. Men were able to more quickly recall images and words, and to comprehend, reason, and act or react faster to this information—brain functions known as working memory.
