Clarification of these issues through both laboratory and clinical investigations is a priority given the broad implications for public health, as well as for military personnel and other positions of high performance demand and responsibility. Particularly since , many reports have shed light on the potential roles of these compounds in preventing and ameliorating diseases of the central nervous system 4.

However, ALA cannot be synthesized by humans; most persons in the US have low dietary intakes of these fatty acids with the main source being direct consumption of EPA and DHA from marine oils in seafood. As shown in lower mammals, eliminating EPA and DHA from the diet dramatically lowers brain concentration and produces a range of behavioral abnormalities 5 - 7.

From the last trimester through the second year of life, the human brain undergoes very rapid growth and during this period is particularly susceptible to nutritional deficiencies.

DHA is the most prevalent fatty acid in brain membrane phospholipids; its accretion is very rapid early in life and depends upon maternal delivery across the placenta and via breast milk 5 , 8.

Several large cohort studies have shown that infants of mothers reporting low perinatal maternal fish consumption have low early childhood intelligence and increased risk of suboptimal outcomes for prosocial behavior, fine motor, communication, and social development scores 9 , Randomized clinical trials RCTs suggest that supplementing the diets of either pregnant mothers or infants with DHA improves cognitive development 11 - A series of cross-sectional, prospective and case-control studies implicates low consumption of fish or marine fats as a risk factor for AD Cell culture studies consistently show that DHA decreases beta amyloid and apoptosis while rodent models of AD are favorably affected by DHA supplementation While early, preliminary results have not demonstrated clear benefit 16 , several large trials are ongoing.

Are such low quantities sufficient for optimal brain function and, in particular, cognitive performance? Cognitive abilities are the primary distinguishing feature of humans relative to non-human primates and lower mammals, and modern society both capitalizes upon and taxes those cognitive abilities.

Does low dietary consumption of marine oils limit or constrain aspects of cognitive performance, under what circumstances, and if so, are these decrements ameliorated by relatively short periods of increased EPA and DHA intake? In his revolutionary Omega-3 Renewal Plan, Dr.

Stoll presents readers for the first time with all the tools for restoring their natural balance of omega-3 fatty acids, including which foods to eat and how to choose the most effective over-the-counter supplements.

The bad news is that even though omega-3 fatty acids have played a critical role in our evolutionary past, these extraordinary substances have been depleted by our Western diet and lifestyle, and the resulting nutritional imbalance seems to have led to a sharp rise in heart disease and depression.
