Shedding Light on the Effect of Fish Oil Supplementation on Dark Adaptation Capabilities
Preprints are manuscripts made publicly available before they have been submitted for formal peer review and publication. They might contain new research findings or data. Preprints can be a draft or final version of an author's research but must not have been accepted for publication at the time of submission.
This is the first study to directly relate the uptake of fatty acids from fish oil supplements (as measured by blood analysis) to changes in dark adaptation capabilities. During the dosing and abstention phases of the regimen, the rise and fall in blood levels of the acids is mirrored by a reversible increase in perception capabilities.
