Omega-3's Enhance Working Memory in Young Healthy Adults
Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh have determined that healthy young adults (18-25 yrs of age) who took an Omega-3 supplement for 6 months, experienced an improvement in working memory.
Before they began taking omega-3 supplements, all subjects underwent a battery of tests; including PET imaging, blood tests, and a working memory test. Researchers found that even prior to omega-3 supplementation, there was a positive correlation between plasma omega-3 status and the memory tests.
After 6 months of supplementing with Lovaza, an FDA approved Omega-3, subjects experienced an improvement in working memory.
Omega-3 supplementation can benefit students and young professionals who want to enhance their memory and brain power.

Supplement your diet with a high quality omega-3 supplement; my favorite is Nordic Naturals Ultimate Omega. Consume between 2-3 grams/ day in divided doses.
