Subject: Omega-3 intake may aid in recovery of concussions and brain injury
Treating brain injuries and concussions is difficult. However, in clinical experience, aggressively ingesting omega-3 can help a person suffering from these maladies on the road to recovery. It is also used to help with brain surgery recovery. Without the proper amount of omegas, recovery from a traumatic brain injury might not happen.
- The treatment of concussions and traumatic brain injury is a clinical challenge. Clinical studies thus far have failed to identify an effective treatment strategy.
- The article reviews preclinical research and cites three brain injury case studies that resulted from a mining accident, a motor vehicle accident, and a drowning accident
- It is well recognized that n-3FAs are not a drug and not a cure and every situation is different.
"According to emerging science and clinical experience, aggressive intake of omega-3 fatty acids (n-3FA) seems to be beneficial to TBI, concussion, and post-concussion syndrome patients. This research is presented in Concussions, Traumatic Brain Injury, and the Innovative Use of Omega-3s, a review article from the Journal of the American College of Nutrition, official publication of the American College of Nutrition."
