A recent study published in Neurology, a journal by the American Academy of Neurology, uncovered its findings on a group of females. It appears that aging women with higher levels of omega-3 fatty acids in their bloodstream, such as salmon, may help retain “larger brain volume.”

This is important given the fact that aging brains tend to decrease in volume.

“We’re not surprised to hear of this encouraging news,” said a spokesperson from Nutrilys Del Mar, a marine supplement company based in San Diego. “For years, we have known the benefits of how fish oil, primarily Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon Oil, helps promote a healthy brain.”

The study included more than 1,000 female participants around 78 years of age and was championed by the University of South Dakota in Sioux Falls and Health Diagnostic Laboratory in Richmond, Virginia. The research was also encouraged by the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute.

The study’s lead author, Jay Pottala told media sources, “The results suggest that higher omega-3 fatty acid levels may hold promise for delaying cognitive aging and dementia.”

Fish types high in omega-3s include:

“For those who are unable to consume a suggested dietary amount of fish per week, finding a quality and pure fish oil supplement, such as Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon Oil, is a great addition to a diet,” said the spokesperson, adding how consulting with a healthcare professional first is always recommended.
