The Road to Brain Injury Recovery with Omega-3 Fish Oil

DHA given prior to the injury also promotes cell survival and function. A study from Sweden showed that resolvins – molecules naturally produced from omega-3 fatty acids – can improve nerve cell function when given within 24 hours of surgery. Why Do Omega-3s Protect the Brain? One of the primary reasons that omega-3s are crucial for the brain (and the rest of the body) is that these fatty acids fight inflammation. Now, inflammation serves an important purpose. If you cut yourself or twist an ankle, inflammation starts the healing process in the form of redness, swelling, heat, pain and loss of function. Normally, the inflammation response is self-limiting. But when there are not enough pro-resolution molecules lying around, inflammation continues to smolder and attack previously undamaged cells. In the brain, excessive inflammation can mean neuronal loss, which explains why the omega-3s’ anti-inflam- matory properties are so important for healthy brain function. The Road to Recovery Today, I am fortunate to report that my family member made a remarkable recovery. He is working again, more physically active than before, and has retained all the warmth and personality he had before surgery. He partially attributes his recovery to Omega Cure, and is faithful about taking his omega-3 oil every day. As for me, I feel grateful that I was able to provide him with the essential nutrition his brain needed to recuperate. About Anne-Marie Chalmers, MD Anne-Marie Chalmers, MD, is the co-founder and president of Omega3 Innovations. Born and raised in the United States, Dr. Chalmers graduated from Brown University and completed her medical training at the University of Oslo in Norway. In Norway, Dr. Chalmers practiced emergency, family, and preventive medicine for many years. Her research and development work has included nutraceuticals (especially omega-3) and medical delivery device systems to facilitate ingestion of multiple medication combination.
