A possible cure for Alzheimer's Using Omega 3 Fatty Acids

See also

Is there a possible cure for Alzheimer's disease by using omega 3 fatty acids? The research project seems to indicate that the disease may have some positive implications when regular amounts of the fatty acids are taken in the daily diet. The study showed that the omega 3 fatty acids were actually capable of going through the protective layer called the blood-brain barrier and reaching the brain. Swedish researchers are thinking that this new find may have positive probabilities in treating Alzheimer's, a form of dementia.

The only way to obtain the omega 3 fatty acids is through diet and/or supplementation. Omega 3 fatty acids are actually in the polyunsaturated fatty acids family. The acid is known to be helpful with rheumatoid arthritis, heart disease, lupus and possibly helping to control various cancers. Past studies have shown that patients who suffer from Alzheimer's disease have much lower levels of omega 3 fatty acids in their cerebral spinal fluid that surrounds and cushions the brain.

A few good sources to obtain the omega 3 fatty acids is from various vegetable oils (olive, flaxseed, canola and soybean), walnuts, dark green vegetables (spinach, kale, Brussels sprouts, collards), and of course fatty fish like salmon and tuna. Receiving the omega 3 fatty acids is recommended more than supplements, due to how the body synthesizes the nutrients more effectively as a whole than by itself.

So the next time you go grocery shopping, such as the local St. Cloud Cash Wise or natural health food store, be sure to pick up some goodies that have the omega 3 fatty acids in them. Within time researchers will discover more data on this study and it could be a possible cure for Alzheimer's when using omega 3 fatty acids properly.
