MedPage TodayMidlife Omega-3 Levels Tied to Brain Structure, Cognition

In this study, higher levels of omega-3s were linked with larger hippocampal volumes and improved cognition, and the increases seen continually with each step measurement of the omega-3s. All measured omega-3 predictors were tied to better abstract reasoning test scores.

The associations remained after adjusting for vascular risk factors.
