Why I take an omega-3 supplement before bedtime...

I'm into dietary supplements that might be relevant to aging (as in the previous posts on resveratrol), and so thought this study was interesting, along with this summary from Rabin. (By the way, the 'before bedtime' in the title is chosen because we know that significant renewal and turnover of brain nerve cells membranes - whose fluidity is modulated by omega-3 content - occurs during sleep.)


  1. Every evening I eat a salad dressed with linseed oil: The triply unsaturated omega-3 fatty acid α-linolenic acid (51.9-55.2%)

  2. How’s the omegas before bedtime going? I started mine and love it!
