New study: fish oil improves children’s cognitive functions


A new study has found that an increased consumption of oily fish can have a positive effect on the cognitive functions of children. The attention and processing speed increased for the children who ate oily fish, and in addition the parents experienced a decrease in socioemotional problems. They found that the children who consumed oily fish worried less compared to before. Previous studies have likewise found that an increased intake of omega-3 fatty acids have a positive effect on the brain, and this new research thereby emphasizes that point.
