Research has shown that omega 3 fatty acids from fish oil provide numerous health benefits. The research reviewed investigated if working memory in young adults improved after taking fish oil containing 750 mg of DHA and 930 mg of EPA per day for 6 months (Narendran R, et al. 2012).
The participants underwent a working memory task test and red blood cell membrane (RBC) fatty acid composition analysis before the start of the study and at the end after 6 months.
The performance on the working memory task improved after taking the supplements, and was consistent with reports in which higher DHA levels is related to improved cognitive performance. Only 2 capsules daily of the Better Fish Oil will provide 750 mg of DHA which is the same amount used in this study.
