A recent study has found that the EPA is more important than DHA for cognitive function. The study, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, looked at the effects of supplementation with oils rich in EPA or DHA and the Omega 6 GLA on cognition, prefrontal cortex (PFC), hemoglobin (Hb) oxygenation, and memory consolidation. The study found that supplementation with oils rich in EPA improved global cognitive function, while DHA had no effect. The study also found that EPA-rich oil was more effective than DHA-rich oil at improving memory consolidation. These findings suggest that EPA is a more critical omega-three fatty acid for cognitive function than DHA. Knowing that the Omega 3 EPA and the Omega 6 GLA is an important finding, as EPA is found in lower concentrations in the diet than DHA, and the Omega 6 GLA is almost nonexistent. This study provides strong evidence that increasing EPA and GLA intake through dietary supplementation, such as in the Lisa Geng protocol, may improve cognitive function.
