Consuming fish decreases the aggressiveness!

One Japanese research has shown that people must eat fish in order to avoid the aggressiveness in the stressful situations.

Individual species of fish contains Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) that decreases the aggressive behavior in the stress testing stages. Every day, in period of 3 months, 22 Japanese students received medicines from 1.5 to 1.8 grams of DHA.

19 participants in the research were receiving fake medicines. The respondents of that group shown increased aggressiveness against other people during the studying phase and exams, while in the DHA group the behavior remained unchanged.

The result from the research is very interesting, because it’s known that the Japanese people are the biggest consumers of fish, and are taking more DHA from the Europeans and Americans anyway.

In the beginning of the research, the DHA has already covered 3% of all fatty acids in the blood of the Japanese students. That value of DHA during the research has been doubled. Among Americans, but also Europeans, according to estimates, the level of DHA is only 1%.
