    This link talks about giving omega 3's immediately after the stroke.

    According to the head of the research team, Dr. Nicholas Bazan, the DHA triggered the production of a neuroprotective molecule called Neuroprotectin D1. Incredibly, this molecule not only salvaged brain tissue that would have died, it also repaired areas of the brain so thoroughly that just seven days after the DHA treatment they were indistinguishable from normal, previously undamaged areas.
