Research shows teenager with higher blood levels of Omega-3 may see improvements in information processing speeds compared with those individuals with lower blood levels of Omega-3.
Over 250 teenagers had blood samples taken in order to calculate the participants Omega-3 Index. Cognitive performance was also assessed using many different cognitive tests. The average Omega 3 index was determined to by 3.83%, which is well below the recommended range of between 8%-11%. Participants with high Omega-3 index were excluded when figuring out the mean. However the mean including those with a high Omega-3 index was still only 3.89%.
A higher Omega-3 index was associated with higher test scores on the LDST and lesser errors on the D2 test of attention.
The Omega-3 Index has also been linked to cardiovascular health.
