Doctors have been saying that fish oil is a healthy and useful supplement for a number of reasons and while many of these reasons have not been medically verified, they are generally considered true. Today however a medical study released showed a very direct link between fish oil consumption and brain aging, apparently for a variety of reasons fish oil helps keep the brain younger and more active in patients.
According to doctors a consistent diet high in fish oil helped keep the brain essentially 2 or more years younger than it should be. This is truly incredible as, according to many, it should help increase memory as well as help reduce risk for various brain disorders later in life. The reasons as to why this is happening are still somewhat unclear and as a result doctors are planning on conducting multiple follow up studies in the coming months. Doctors are also hoping to understand a little bit more about why exactly this is happening so that they can somehow manage to increase the effectiveness through medication. This is truly great news for everyone because it is one of the most significant discoveries for brain health in quite some time; it may be a while before we understand exactly why we are seeing this type of benefit but for now doctors are just happy that it is happening.
