DHA Omega-3 Prevents Cardiovascular Disease and Cognitive Decline

Written by Keith D. Bishop, Clinical Nutritionist, B.Sc. Pharmacy - February 2, 2010

  • People who took DHA omega-3 had fewer learning errors, positive effects on verbal recognition memory and a significant decrease in resting heart rate. 

DHA Omega-3 Prevents Cardiovascular Disease and Cognitive DeclineResearchers studied 485 people in a randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled study to evaluate the effects of DHA on heart function and cognitive function. Participants in the study either took a placebo or 900 mg of DHA for 6 months. The researchers found significantly fewer learning errors, positive effects on verbal recognition memory and significant decreases in resting heart rate in the DHA group in comparison to the placebo group.

The DHA group had improved learning and memory functions and cardiovascular benefits. Study data demonstrated that DHA supplementation could have a potentially beneficial role in preventing ameliorating cognitive decline and cardiovascular disease in the aged.

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) refers to the group of diseases that involve the heart or blood vessels (arteries and veins) throughout the body. These diseases include coronary artery (heart blood vessel) disease, heart attack, heart failure, high blood pressure and stroke.

Cognitive function is the term used to describe a person’s state of consciousness (alertness and orientation), memory and attention span. Cognitive diseases include dementia and Alzheimer's.

DHA and EPA omega-3 fatty acids show similar health benefits in numerous health studies. I recommend high dose DHA for dementia and Alzheimer’s. DHA is the most numerous fatty acid in the brain. Each cell in the brain and though out the body contains DHA and EPA.

DHA is available in many of our omega-3 fatty acid capsules and liquids. Ask our staff for assistance in selecting the right product for you.
