    This nutritional supplement for those who suffer from poor memory

    The pressures of daily life and the large amount of news that people receive through social media cause many problems that have recently been classified under the name “brain fog”, whose main symptoms are dispersion, memory loss and the inability to focus.

    According to the study published in the journal Alzheimer’s Disease “IOS Press”, scientists have confirmed the ability of a nutritional supplement to “stabilize memory”, especially in cases of Alzheimer’s disease.

    A team of scientists from the Karolinska Institutet, Sahlgrenska University Hospital and Uppsala University in Sweden studied a number of cases of people with Alzheimer’s disease.

    The study found that omega-3 fatty acids can help maintain and significantly stabilize human memory “even after it has been partially compromised.”

    Although there were notable results on memory, the research did not detect any differences between groups in the cerebrospinal fluid samples, said Yvonne Freund Levy, a researcher in the field of neuroscience at the University of Örebro, in a press release about the results of the study.

    Freund Levi added: “The best advice we can give at the moment is to be physically active and include omega-3s in your diet, in the form of meals of oily fish or supplements. We can see a difference in the results of the memory tests. Patients who took omega-3 supplements early in the disease had better results.”
