Omega-3 Curbed Traumatic Brain Injury in Rats
Rats that got the highest dose of omega-3 DHA displayed the least brain damage.
Traumatic brain injury or TBI happens during accidents and sports mishaps, when the brain takes a shock that causes tissue damage.
Sadly, TBI became the signature wound of the Iraq war, in which some soldiers survived a blast only to suffer invisible blows to their cognitive and emotional capacities.
Omega-3s may offer hope for blunting the effects of TBI.
For example, in 2004, researchers reported that omega-3s deterred the worst brain damage from concussions suffered by rats.
Two rat experiments published in 2010 – bolstered the idea that omega-3s can curb the brain damage resulting from TBIs.
