I heard from my girlfriend at Church that if you take FISH OIL it will improve your memory and help you not to get Alzheimer’s Disease. Does anyone know if this is a fact?

Where can I find on the innernet if this is a fact? Thank you and GOD BLESS!

considering that fish have a 30second memory span…I DOUBT IT

I’ve heard it’s a hoax.

no fish oil does not improve your memory.

No, but I heard that ginko biloba had some effect on a person’s memory.

Sounds fishy . . what were you saying?

No it won’t Ive caught the same fish twice.

yes, i heard that from a doctor. fish oils are really good for you.

I don’t think it has improved mine, although it has helped with my cholesterol problems.

no sorry and im agist it annyway

I don’t remember…
lol–Yes,I heard it helps.My mom is trying it,but too soon to tell any results.

Yes, fish oil is extremely healthy for you and is one of the best natural medicines. I’m not quite sure if you can expect it to improve your memory but it does really help you stay healthy. It’s really good for your heart and your brain. Just ask the Japanese, all they eat is sushi, and they have the world’s longest life span!

The omega 3 fatty acids help memory. Fish oil is loaded with them. So, also, is flax seed oil.
d.

EXCELLENT for skin problems, cholesterol reduction, and yes, memory/Alzheimers. TAKE IT!!! Whole FOods has good brands …

No… if so, people that live on islands would never get Alzheimers.

Supposedly if you take Gingko Baloba..that works.. but it says on the box, take 3 times a day.LOL… If you can remember that, you don’t NEED it!!!

I think I have heard that boy I need to take them anyway for the Omega fatty acids and Alzheimers runs in my family.

Fish oils are powerful antioxidants. They serve to clean your blood stream of toxins and plaques, indirectly, they could indeed impact your ability to remember. they won’t restore anything lost, but could serve to prevent further loss.

To answer your question, yes, it is believed to improve memory function through an omega-3 fatty acid contained within, called DHA. Although, there have been no clinical studies to support these claims.

Fish Oil is suppose to be good for the heart and the brain from what I know and could be good for other parts of the body as well. My boyfriend likes to take them every so often. I have taken them and they are gross-the ones we have at home, but they do sell some with no taste or after taste. If you want to take them take those and look up the benefits of Fish Oil on-line at sites like WebMD.com if you are still hesitant. Eating healthier foods alone help memory and fight disease, even much so with regular exercise.

Good Luck!

Yes mam it does work my mom had a freak accident a few years back and it almost totally destroid her memory snd she started taking it every day and it has helped alot

Yes it does as it has omega 3 its a great source of brain food read some articles on this site for more dietry needs

I think it is supposed to increase your mammeries – but I don’t believe it.

no

I don’t know, although I haven’t tried it.

My Doctor has me take it to help my heart .

it sort of helps but the main point is that it decreases your risk of heart failure

noooooooooooo who told you that lie but don’t get me wrong i do not eat no fish

I take it all the time. Now what was the question?????????

It’s not the actual fish oil that helps your memory. Fish oil contains a large amount of Omega-3 fatty acids, a very essential oil needed by the human body. The average American diet does not have nearly enough of these fatty acids in their diets.

It’s not that the oil makes your memory better. It helps your brain because it fixes a nutritional deficiency.

Omega 3 fatty acids can also be found in another popular source called flax seed oil. I take this supplement daily.

Do a search for fishp oil or omega 3 in my source.

I’m not sure, but I know that emulsified cod liver oil mixed with whole milk is very good for your skin and hair as well as improving your health.

yes there is a special cemical in your brain caleed namenisa

it is i memorey cemical it realises it when you eat it

probably helps indirectly by increasing the health of body (and brain)

but it fou want to avoid alzheimers I suggest you do not cook or let your food touch aluminum.
it stays in your body forever and has been linked with alzheimers

I don’t think so.

Well, it does help improve memory. The claim about preventing Alzheimer’s I don’t think is proven, but it may help. Fish Oil contains Omega 3. If you also have high cholesterol, or are a vegetarian like I am, you can take Flax seed Oil, instead. You’ll get all the benefits of Omega 3 while helping to lower your cholesterol from a plant source.
If you do go with the Fish Oil, I would recommend Carlson’s for the brand to go with.
Oh; it also helps fight inflammation and it’s good for skin issues like acne & exzema.
If you’re concerned about Alzheimer’s; stop using any deodorants containing aluminum chloryl hydrate. Also, stop using aluminum foil, & throw out all your aluminum pots/pans. Go buy a supplement called “Spirulina”. This blue-green algae will help pull the aluminum out of your body.
To your health!

yes it is a fact. scientists have proven that it helps transmit nerve impulses in the brain and improved memory is a side effect. try seven seas cod liver oil capsules. it is good for you.

Omega Fatty Acids – check website:

http://www.nordicnaturals.com/

no i don’t think so,but it might

I don’t know if it does or not. But I heard that grape juice and fructose (is that what you use in canning?) cure something. Knee pain, I think. Not sure.

yes omega 3 does help the memory i take it and i let Jesus in my heart to forgive sins and help me so i can get rid of the bad memomries too.
but as far as alzheimers that is a disease/disorder which is neuron related-its like saying does lotion help your hand if your arm gets cut off-then again it wont hurt to try. im prayin for you peace in Jesus the best thought in memories

no it doesn’t it’s just to eat.

I’m not sure about fish oil , but flax seed oil is good for memory, stress and many other things, fish oil has anti-oxidents which is good . just google fish oil and flax seed oil. I take both 1000mg a day of each

Yes, it improves memory and promotes brain cells.

I dunno, but i have achillies tendinities, and my phsiotherapist told be it’d would help heal it. But eeeew! I hate fish, so no way!

Yes and no, mostly due to the fact that Omega 3 fatty acids are VERY healthy for brain health but having an excess of what you should normally have won’t improve memory function MORE than what it would normally would be if you took a lot of Fish Oils.

BUT… if you’re looking to improve cognitive functions (brain functions) memory, creativity try whats now being know as nootropic drugs or smart drugs, some are herbal and some are Prescription drugs, they’ve pretty much helped me out so far in my first 3 years of college and I live by them.

check out wikipedia.org/wiki/Nootropics
that will also touch up a bit on Fatty Acids like Omega 3 Fish oils

EDIT: a lot of people are saying that it IMPROVES memory when it does not, what it will do is “GIVE YOUR BRAIN THE FATTY ACIDS IT SHOULD ALREADY HAVE, RESTORE NORMAL / BASELINE FUNCTION” so it wont IMPROVE you unless you are lacking in this department and when you do take it all its going to do is bring you back to normal functioning levels.

ONLY and I mean ONLY nootropics IMPROVE brain memory and function beyond was was intended by nature basically steroids for your brains, and they take roughly about 6-8 weeks before you see results.

One thing I have learned is that very little is “fact”
One day claims are made that something does something and then another study “prooves” the opposite, and then another study…yada yada yada, so go with your intuitive gut.
As for Alzheimers, there are a lot of theories, ideas, etc. as to what causes it, but I hate to say that the medical world is a huge “cause unknown”-It’s idiopathic this and idiopathic that.
By the way, Idiopathic means cause unknown.

I literally put in your question word for word into google and clicked on the first link. Here’s your scientific proof.
