Omega-3 Works Wonderfully over Memory of Young Adults

A latest research work is hinting good effects of Omega-3 fish oil supplements over the memory of young adults. According to the findings of the experts, the Omega-3 fatty acids, which are commonly found in marine and plant oils, have been noticed to be significantly improving and sharpening the memory of young adults.

Prior concluding the above statements, the team of researchers at the University of Pittsburgh studied a group of healthy young men and women, all aged between 18-25 years. The research was carried out for six months during which the experts kept increasing the group's intake of Omega-3 fatty acids.

They found towards the end of the study that every participant showcased high improvement in his memory till that time.

"Before seeing this data, I would have said it was impossible to move young healthy individuals above their cognitive best", said Ms. Bita Moghaddam, project investigator and a professor of neuroscience. "We found that members of this population can enhance their working memory performance even further, despite their already being at the top of their cognitive game".

The study also arranged for some positron emission tomography (PET) imaging and a blood test for the participants (before introducing them with the supplements) along with showing them a series of letters and numbers as a part of a memory exercise called a simple "n-back" test.

It was during the memory tests and blood sampling that researchers noticed improvements in the group's working memory.
