The supply of polyunsaturated fatty acids, especially omega-3 fatty acids, is particularly important for the health of our brain. Unfortunately, the typical Western diet today has a deficiency of omega-3 fatty acids with a simultaneous excess of omega-6 fatty acids, which is considered a major reason for the increase in neurological diseases. Clinical studies have revealed a relative deficiency of omega-3 fatty acids in almost all Alzheimer’s patients, even those in the early stages of the disease. The beneficial effects of omega-3 fatty acids in Alzheimer’s are attributed to their antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective properties. Again, the earlier you ensure an optimal supply of omega-3 fatty acids, the better protected you are from dementia!
