Omega-3 improves peripheral nerve injury recovery

Tuesday, January 17, 2012. In the January 11, 2012 issue of the Journal of Neuroscience, researchers at Queen Mary University of London report that omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, which include eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), may help protect peripheral nerves from injury and stimulate recovery. Damage to the peripheral nerves, which transmit signals between the brain and spinal cord, can cause symptoms ranging from pain to paralysis, and recovery is often limited.
