Improve your learning and memory

We would all like to improve our memory or at least not see it decline as we get older. The following research may show us one way to do that.

The study included healthy individuals aged 55 years or more (Yurko-Mauro, et al. 2010). The participants were randomly assigned to take either 900 mg of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) per day or a placebo for 24 weeks. DHA is one of the active ingredients of omega 3 fish oil.

The researchers concluded after 24 weeks that supplementation with 900 mg of DHA daily improved learning and memory function and is a beneficial supplement that support cognitive health with aging.
