Don’t Waste Your Money on THIS Brain Supplement! (SHOCKING!)
When it comes to boosting your brain health, it’s hard to beat omega-3s.
But despite loads of studies showing their ability to enhance memory and cognition and slow cognitive decline, other studies have cast doubts.
A recent study took a closer look at why.
And what the researchers found could change everything we thought we knew about this brain supplement.
Here’s what you need to know… so you don’t waste your money.
Omega-3s are great for your brain, but a recent study highlighted one crucial fact: If you’re not getting enough of them, you’re just wasting your money.
Thirty-three people who had risk factors for Alzheimer’s took either 2 grams per day of omega-3 DHA or a placebo. Both groups also took B vitamins, which help the body process omega-3s.
After six months, those taking the omega-3 supplements had 200 percent more DHA in their blood than those taking the placebo.
That’s an incredible increase.
However, levels of DHA in the cerebrospinal fluid were only 28 percent higher than in the control group.
This is still a beneficial increase, but you can see that it’s nowhere near the 200 percent increase found in the blood.
So what can we learn from this?
This study tells us that measuring blood levels alone won’t tell you how much of this important nutrient actually reaches your brain.
It also indicates that higher doses might be necessary for enough omega-3s to reach your brain—especially if you already have an increased risk of Alzheimer’s.
You see, this study found that the people who carried the APOE4 gene—which increases the risk of Alzheimer’s by a factor of four—had much less DHA in their brains, despite taking the same dose.
In fact, compared to people with the APOE4 gene, those without this gene had a three-times greater increase in EPA in their cerebrospinal fluid.
This was a critical finding, since it indicates that the people who need omega-3s the most could need to take even higher doses to obtain its benefits.
I’m a fan of getting my omega-3s the way God intended: through fatty fish like salmon and tuna, and through nuts and seeds like flaxseed and walnuts.
But if you’re not getting enough of those in your diet—or if you have the gene that predisposes you to Alzheimer’s—consider supplementing with higher doses of omega-3s.
You can obtain a quality omega-3 supplement from your local nautral health shop.
