Omega-3 DHEA and Concussions

omega-3 with DHEA and concussions
Researchers in The Journal of Neurosurgery, verified the possible benefits of omega-3 fatty acid / DHA supplements for concussion. Significantly, they wrote that animals who received a fish oil nutritional supplement each day for 30 days after a concussive injury had more than 98 percent reductions in brain damage when compared with those that did not. Hypothetically, omega-3 fatty acids were responsible for reduction in neural inflammation promoted by the head injuries.
The reduction of inflammation appears to be critical to healing. Information about using nutrition to discourage inflammation in the body is widely available on the internet (here, for example). Generally, however, the suggestions are to choose a variety of foods throughout the choices of frequently acknowledged healthy foods. Diets that fight inflammation include as much fresh vegetables and fruits as possible, as well as minimizing processed and fast foods. Also noted as helpful is elimination of sugar and caffeine.
Extra bodily weight may make symptoms worse; however, distinguishing between the “good” and “bad” fats is important. Good fats are actually essential for brain operations and is endorsed for brain recovery. Such fats include olive oil, coconut oil and avocado.

I've seen amazing improvements in my own personal health from intelligent choices that I have discovered as a result of this decade long study. I have invested literally tens of thousands of dollars in products - many of them with wonderful results - a good number that offered nothing but empty promises. To help fund this self admitted "obsessive quest for anti-aging and health” I’ve become involved in the distribution of only those products that have shown true results... using legitimate peer reviewed research, and my own body, as a testing ground and litmus test for what is real and what isn't. I am on a quest to live my life in great health and with robust gusto and exuberance.
