The diet of over 5000 men and women were studied in the Netherlands recently.  Analysis showed that consuming fish at least once weekly reduced the risk of getting Alzheimer’s disease by 70%.

That omega-3s are good fatty acids that help the transmission of impulses between brain cells as well as helping to maintain cardiovascular health has been known for a while.  But new evidence suggests that there is an additional element in the fish besides the omega-3 that causes these benefits.

Thus, while it is helpful to add fish oil supplements to your vitamin regimen, it is not as effective as eating the fish itself.

Examples of fish that are high in omega-3 oils are:


  • sardines
  • trout
  • tuna
  • herring
  • mackerel 
Four ounces of these fish three to four times a week is not only nutritious, but medicinal as well.
