Omega-3 Fatty Acids May Not Protect Cognition. Intake of omega-3 fatty acids may not protect cognition, a new study suggests. In contrast to some past research, researchers report that after adjustment for confounding factors, red blood cell levels of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids were not significantly associated with baseline cognitive function or cognitive change over time in older, dementia-free women.Omega-3 fatty acids and domain-specific cognitive aging.

Fish Oil Component Limits Brain Damage Up To 5 Hours After Stroke. Research has shown that Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), a component of fish oil, is a powerful therapeutic agent that can protect brain tissue and promote recovery in an experimental model of acute ischemic stroke, even when treatment is delayed by up to five hours. These findings not only target a new stroke treatment approach, but also provide vital information about the length of the therapeutic window.

Daily Dose of Beet Juice Promotes Brain Health in Older Adults. Researchers for the first time have shown that drinking beet juice can increase blood flow to the brain in older adults a finding that could hold great potential for combating the progression of dementia. The MRIs showed that after eating a high-nitrate diet, the older adults had increased blood flow to the white matter of the frontal lobes the areas of the brain commonly associated with degeneration that leads to dementia and other cognitive conditions. Acute effect of a high nitrate diet on brain perfusion in older adults.

Alcohol Consumption May Protect Against Risk of Alzheimer's Disease, Particularly in Female Nonsmokers, University of Valencia Study Finds. Knowledge regarding environmental factors influencing the risk of Alzheimer's disease is surprisingly scarce, despite substantial research in this area. In particular, the roles of smoking and alcohol consumption still remain controversial. A new study published this month in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease suggests a protective effect of alcohol consumption on the risk of Alzheimer's disease, particularly in women who do not smoke. Isolated and Joint Effects of Tobacco and Alcohol Consumption on Risk of Alzheimer's Disease.

Caffeine May Counteract Cognitive Decline. Drinking coffee could help to prevent the neural degeneration associated with brain disorders and aging, scientists say. A new gamut of research is making the case that caffeine, a drug known for its short-term boost to mental functioning, could have therapeutic value for the preventative care of illnesses, such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease.

Coffee and Cigarettes: Good for Your Brain? A recent paper by Kien Trinh et al. in the Journal of Neuroscience suggests that coffee and tobacco have a protective effect in two fruit fly models of Parkinson's disease. Decaffeinated coffee and nicotine-free tobacco provide neuroprotection in Drosophila models of Parkinson's disease through an NRF2-dependent mechanism.
