Altering the Collision Course: Protective Effects of Omega-3 Intake on Concussions

Dr. Michael Lewis explains how the proactive benefits of Omega-3 intake can protect people from long-term impacts of concussions.
  • Overview

    There is nearly a 20% chance that each of us will suffer a concussion this year. More concerning yet, over 30% of those concussions will lead to a long-term, potentially permanent disability.  Many studies have explored how the use of Omega-3 fatty acids may add some measure of resilience within the brain to withstand injury in those at significant risk.

    Host Dr. Brian McDonough chats with Dr. Michael Lewis, founder of the nonprofit Brain Health Education and Research Institute about how the utilization of Omega-3 fatty acids may facilitate the concussion healing process and relieve symptoms.
