The scientists from the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC), the National Institutes of Health and Aker BioMarine have launched a comprehensive research study, which evaluates the effects of krill oil omega-3s on the resilience and performance of a group of elite soldiers in the United States Army.
The purpose of this study is to investigate whether supplementation with krill oil concentrate can improve specific cognitive processes on performance and mental health under the extreme stress during the military officer training.
In the big picture, intake of omega-3s is essential for living a productive and healthy life. For instance, sustained attention and cognitive control are essential for everyday things like parenting, managing stress at work or safe driving. Real performance studies can inspire new role models among young people and potentially help prevent lifestyle diseases before they become irreversible.
