Omega-3 fatty acids are fats found in cold water oily fish such as salmon and sardines, flaxseeds and flaxseed oil, and walnuts.
Population studies have shown that consumption of Omega-3 oils may be linked to a reduced risk of Alzheimer’s. But the results of the OmegAD trial conducted by Swedish researchers show that Omega-3 oils did not slow decline of memory and thinking in people with mild to moderate Alzheimer’s, although it did seem to help a sub-group with very mild Alzheimer’s. Additional trials of Omega-3s are in various stages of completion, but results have not been published.
