All I Want for Christmas is Fish Oil

Posted Dec 03 2010 10:11am

ScienceDaily.com says new studies show fish oil increases the level of the protein in your body that prevents amyloid formation. Amyloid is the “tell-tale protein” found in Alzeheimer’s Disease. Researchers say a common form of Alzheimer’s is caused by genetic and environmental risks that increase the buildup of amyloid protein, forming lesions on the brain.

 

The experts are saying…

“The fact that substances in our diet and environment can affect the buildup of amyloid and tau in the brain is very important and is suggesting new ways to develop treatments.” David Holtzman, MD of Washington University in St. Louis

“Because DHA and DHA-rich fish oil have all of these activities and are still cheap and very safe, they should be seriously considered for dementia prevention trials.” Gregory Cole, PhD, of the Greater Los Angeles Veterans Administration Medical Center and the University of California, Los Angeles
