Omega-3 intake correlates to a larger brain, according to new research. Our brains shrink as we age, but too much shrinkage has been associated with diseases of the brain.
New studies are being done to understand why this happens and how we can support our brain health. In this study, over 1,100 women had their brain volumes measured by MRI scans and then repeated after 8 years.
They found a correlation between higher omega-3 intake and overall brain volume in postmenopausal women.
