Omega-3s May Boost Executive Function in Children

Past research suggests that omega-3s may help boost brain function. A recent study supports that, suggesting that high levels of omega-3s may contribute to better executive function in children.


Participants in the study included 307 Ghanaian children. At the beginning of the study, the children averaged slightly more than 4% on the Omega-3 Index.


The researchers then conducted a standardized executive function test called the Dimensional Change Card Sort. Older children performed better than younger children. The researchers also found that the children with the highest Omega-3 Index levels performed the best overall.


Researchers from Michigan State University led the study. It was published in the July 2018 issue of the Journal of Nutritional Biochemistry.


Because omega-3 fatty-acids are not found naturally in the human body, it is especially important to make sure that they are a part of your daily diet. Oily, dark fish such as tuna and salmon are high in omega-3s. For people who don’t like fish, consider taking a daily high quality non-fish supplement that has been tested for purity and potency.
