Omega 3 (DHA) 


The Omega 3 fat DHA is the predominant structural fatty acid in the central nervous system and retina and its availability is crucial for improved brain development and brain ageing

Several studies have linked Omega 3 intake to decreased age-related mental decline and even to a reduced risk of Alzheimer's disease. Results to-date also suggest that DHA is more effective the earlier it is ‘started’, meaning at a young age, and that it most effectively used in conjunction with antioxidants

DHA intake during preschool years may also have a beneficial role in the prevention of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and enhancing learning capability and academic performance. In fact, Several research studies have shown that children with ADHD have lower blood levels of omega-3 fatty acids than children with ADHD. 
Furthermore, it has been shown that omega-3 supplements can reduce symptoms of ADHD, such as inattention, hyperactivity, impulsiveness, restlessness and aggression. 

Omega-3 supplements are beneficial to help prevent and treat depression and anxiety. Research has shown that people who regularly take Omega 3 supplements are less likely to suffer from depression and anxiety, and that people with depression or anxiety had a reduction in symptoms, after they started to take Omega-3 supplements. 

Some studies have indeed shown that people with psychiatric disorders tend to have lower levels of Omega-3 and that Omega-3 supplementation has shown to reduce the frequency of mood swings and relapses in people with both schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. 

Low levels of DHA are also linked to lower levels of the hormone melatonin, responsible for sleep. Taking Omega-3 fatty acid DHA has shown to improve the length and quality of your sleep.
