Omega-3 may improve brain function

Healthy young adults could boost their cognitive function and working memory by increasing their intake of omega-3 fatty acids, new research has found.

The study looked at healthy young men and women between 18 and 25 from all ethnicities to boost their omega-3 intake with supplements for six months. Participants were monitored monthly with blood sample analysed and a working memory test.
