A lot of research has been published on the importance of omega-3 fatty acid.
The results documented a positive association between the ratio of omega 6 to omega 3 fat and cognitive decline, dementia and an increased risk for Alzheimer’s decease. This was found in studies for both animals and humans.
Most people today have a higher ratio than what is desirable of omega six to Omega 3 fat because they are using vegetable oil when cooking, and they are not eating enough omega-3 fats. An easy way to correct that is to use a high quality fish oil. Two capsules daily of an oil that contains high amounts of EPA, DHA the active ingredients of Omega 3 fat will make a big difference.
