Omega-3s Can Clear Beta-Amyloid to Fight Alzheimer's

Another new study has shown that supplementation with omega-3 fatty acids could help to prevent and even reverse the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. This study confirms some other studies I've covered,  suggesting that omega-3 fatty acid derivatives stimulate the uptake of amyloid-beta proteins (proteins that are suggested to kill brain cells and form the plaques that are a hallmark of Alzheimer's disease). For your review, here are some previous studies:
The researcher point out that normal inflammatory processes should be able to repair and restore tissue damage However, with Alzheimer's, this process is interrupted, so instead of repairing and restoring tissue, debris from dead cells and amyloid-beta plaques fail to clear, and build-up.

The research team found omega-3 fatty acid derivatives helped to induce the healing process and stimulate the clearance of amyloid-beta proteins.\
