Omega-3 fatty acids are polyunsaturated fatty acids that are found in fatty fish, nuts and seeds, and some oils. They have been studied extensively for their potential benefits in improving brain function. Here are some examples of studies that have investigated the effects of omega-3 fatty acids on the brain:
Cognitive function: A systematic review and meta-analysis of 28 randomized controlled trials found that omega-3 fatty acid supplementation may improve cognitive function and memory in older adults (Titova et al., 2019).
Mood disorders: A meta-analysis of 26 studies found that omega-3 fatty acid supplementation may have benefits for mood disorders such as depression and anxiety (Grosso et al., 2014).
Neurodegenerative diseases: Several studies have suggested that omega-3 fatty acids may have neuroprotective effects and may help prevent or slow the progression of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease (Chang et al., 2020; Tan et al., 2021).
Brain development: Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for brain development, particularly in infants and young children. Several studies have suggested that supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids may improve cognitive and behavioral outcomes in children (Willatts et al., 2013; Judge et al., 2015).
