Fish Oil and the Brain

Thursday, October 25, 2012


What makes fish oil unique? Fish oil contains omega-3 fatty acids which is also found in the brain. Research shows fish oil can have a powerful affect on the brain especially after brain trauma. 

 

What are some of the benefits of fish oil? According to Dr. Nicolas Bazan, director of the Neuroscience Center of Excellence at LSU Health in New Orleans, "We have strong data that suggest omega-3 will activate good proteins to cope with brain damage and turn off proteins that cause neuroinflammation,"

 

The article, Fish Oil Helped Save our Son, contains an amazing story of 17 year old Bobby, who was in a coma after a tragic car accident and had experienced severe brain trauma. The doctors administered large amounts of fish oil and two weeks after the treatment, he came out of the coma. His recovery has been slow, but steady and his doctors and parents attribute his recovery to fish oil. Dr. Michael Lewis, founder of the Brain Health Education and Research Institute, commented by saying, "In my opinion, and this is pure speculation, he never would have come out of a coma if it hadn't been for the use of omega-3s to allow that natural healing process to occur. In the end, the brain has to heal itself. There are no magic cures for brain injury."

 

I look forward to hearing more about the healing power of fish oil. Talk to your doctor about how to effectively add fish oil into your life.
