26  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Nutrition, Products & Supplements / Fish Oil Boosts Brain Power on: July 17, 2014, 07:18:35 AM
Fish oil is touted as a magical potion that boosts fertility, heart health, and weight loss and promotes a clear complexion, while lessening the effects of depression, ulcers, diabetes and many more conditions. But there’s another benefit to these glossy little capsules: They may prevent Alzheimer’s disease.

A new study of 819 people published in the journal Alzheimer’s & Dementia found that taking fish oil supplements on a daily basis is associated with a significant decrease in cognitive decline (as measured by the Alzheimer’s Disease Assessment Scale and the Mini Mental State Exam) and brain atrophy — important findings in light of statistics that show that one person per minute is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.

“We found that fish oil use was associated with better performance on standard tests of memory and thinking abilities over time, compared to those who didn’t take supplements,” lead study author Lori Daiello, a research scientist at the Alzheimer’s Disease and Memory Disorders Center at Rhode Island Hospital, tells Yahoo Health. “They also experienced less brain shrinkage in areas of the brain important for healthy cognitive aging — the cerebral cortex and hippocampus, the portion of the brain responsible for forming and retaining memories.”

For this study, researchers analyzed information from neuropsychological tests and MRI brain imaging performed at regular intervals for up to four years during the Alzheimer’s disease Neuroimaging Initiative, a longitudinal study of brain aging and Alzheimer’s Disease. The population consisted of a group of older adults with varying degrees of cognitive capability: normal cognitive function, mild cognitive impairment, and Alzheimer’s disease. The benefit of fish oil appeared strongest in the group with normal cognitive functioning. “Retrospective studies cannot establish cause and effect, so we can’t make a global recommendation that everyone should start taking fish oil supplements. But the findings highlight the need for additional research on the effects of longterm fish oil use on brain health in later life,” says Daiello. 

The main ingredient in fish oil is DHA, omega-3 fatty acids found in cold-water fatty fish such as salmon, swordfish, trout, yellowfin tuna, mackerel, and more. (Non fish-lovers can find it in eggs, milk, and algae-derived supplements). According to Daiello, there is no definitive evidence that eating fish daily is better than taking fish-oil supplements. But some people dislike the fishy breath that lingers after taking the supplements. “In that case, you could always store the capsules in the freezer, which seems to diminish the scent,” suggests Daiello. (Though the study did not address the dosage of daily fish oil to take, the World Health Organization recommends a daily EPA and DHA intake of 0.3 to 0.5 grams and a daily ALA intake of 0.8 to 1.1 grams.)

And while the effects of fish oil have been well-documented, they also carry a “buyer beware” element. One study, conducted by a testing company called LabDoor, found that what’s advertised on the label of many supplements may not live up to their promise of what’s advertised on the labels. When the company analyzed 30 top-selling brands, they found that six products exaggerated the amount of omega-3 on their labels by 30 percent. And at least a dozen products contained DHA levels that were 14 percent less than advertised. “Mislabeling is a big problem because the FDA considers fish oil supplements food, not drugs, so they aren’t regulated,” says Daiello. “So it’s tough to verify the purity of what you buy.”

To select the best supplement, talk to your doctor, who may be able to recommend a pill that’s right for your needs. Or join a subscription-based website such as Consumer Lab, which regularly tests vitamins and supplements.

Great story!

Another rule to be added to the list.

Man Charged with Sexual Assault of 14-Year-Old at Planet Fitness

A 35-year-old man was charged with sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl at a Planet Fitness in Lancaster Township, PA, reported.

Rainel Estrada Larios also is accused of texting the girl pornographic photographs, according to the newspaper. The girl told police the alleged incidents occurred in March and April in the hallway of the Planet Fitness. From

The girl confided to a friend that she had told Larios she was 14 years old and he responded that he was from Cuba and that in his country, age did not matter, the complaint states.

Police had responded to a disturbance at Planet Fitness on April 30. The girl's father confronted Larios at the gym before Larios drove away, according to the report. Planet Fitness staff helped identify Larios, who is in Lancaster County Prison in lieu of $400,000 bail, the newspaper reported.

Larios is charged with corruption of minors, unlawful contact with a minor, three counts of indecent assault and attempted indecent assault, according to multiple media reports. Fox 43 in York, PA, is reporting the arrest was made July 1, and the preliminary hearing is Thursday.

Apparently a lot of younger girls/women carry their phone in their bra  Roll Eyes  There's been warnings about doing that ~ ie; breast cancer risk.  More women are being diagnosed with bc at younger ages.  Coincidence?  No one knows.  

Anyway, you guys carrying next to your junk may want to come up with an alternative

Is it true or is he just messing with me in order to justify foolish behavior?

The kid was literally cooking up dry herbs in oil (supposedly extracting THC from the herb) and then mixed the result of that with both brownie mix and cookie dough. He baked both batches and produce a wide assortments of pastries.

I think he was over complicating things.


This is a common cooking practice to infuse flavor into a dish (like tomato sauce).  Cocoa is strong and can mask a lot of "off flavors" which is why people like weed in brownies, but in pastries  Undecided   Lips sealed

Maybe a day & 1/2 tops, but that's only been in summer if the entire following day is spent doing yard work, but gotta shower the bug spray & crud off before going to bed.  Even if it's unscented it still smells and feels nasty.

Personal use.... Roll Eyes

So you're saying that cc might be a good idea? Wink

You`d get pretty fucking stoned!


Too many other factors to consider to give an accurate answer.

Understood.  But, hypothetically speaking, would that be for personal use or more?

No homo but anyone recommend an easy to swallow multivitamin. Seems a lot of them are big horse pills. Prefer smooth coating but not required, thanks.

Much smaller than a typical vit C cap.

There's no workout like digging a hole for a large breed dog. I just had to bury an English Mastiff a couple months ago.

If you own a dog over 100lbs RENT A BACKHOE.

So Sorry

Ironic death as well. He had a whole bit on MADD fucking up the fun for drunk drivers.

I had to look that one up.  Totally forgot about the circumstances.  I was thinking a John Belushi kind of death.  What ever happened to the other driver?
