Yes, junk food affects your memory power! Here's how to fix it

Researchers from Ohio State University conducted a study to understand the effect of processed diets on mental health and whether omega-3 supplementation could improve these effects

According to an older study published in Science Direct, regular consumption of processed food impaired memory function among older adults.

In order to retrieve this neurological impairment, researchers from Ohio State University conducted a study to understand the mechanisms behind the neurological effects of processed diets and whether omega-3 supplementation could improve these effects.

The researchers obtained 3 to 24-month-old rats for the research. Their regular diet included 63.3% refined carbohydrates, or a processed food diet and omega 3 supplements for 28 days

The analysis revealed that the rats that ate a processed food diet alone had significantly higher inflammatory gene expression than those that consumed an alternative diet with omega 3 supplementation.

The researchers also added that DHA supplements do not necessarily offset the negative effects of highly refined foods and that people should focus on overall diet improvement by increasing complex carbohydrate and fiber intake.
