As a child, my mum used to say – “Eat up your fish – it will make you smarter”… and she was she right!
Oily fish is abundant in omega-3, a healthy fat that is essential to our brain and heart function, and overall well-being. Our bodies can’t produce omega-3, so we need to get it through our diet.
It’s no surprise that omega-3 is so beneficial to brain health. The importance of these fatty acids becomes most obvious when they’re lacking. People who don’t get enough omega-3’s in their diet can become demotivated, disinterested, forgetful and may experience low mood, while serious deficiency can lead to an increased risk of developing conditions such as ADD, dyslexia, depression and alzheimers. Cognitune Smarter Health has rated Omega-3 as the number one Brain Booster Supplement.
DHA – A TRUE BRAIN FOOD?
DHA is like brain nutrition. Just as calcium is essential for building strong bones, DHA is essential for good brain health. DHA helps to improve learning, mood, memory and concentration. Supplementation has been shown to reduce depression, anger, aggression and anxiety.
HOW MUCH DO I NEED?
Studies show that you need 250mg DHA daily to support brain health. Eating oily fish twice a week – such as salmon or sardines, provides a healthy dose of omega-3 EPA/DHA. Not a fish fan, you can choose a high quality fish oil supplement such as Eskimo Brain 3.6.9. I’d recommend that you check your preferred supplement to see that you are getting adequate DHA, as often supplements can fall short.
Eskimo Brain 3.6.9 combines the unique stable fish oil, Eskimo-3, which is high in DHA, with plant oils omega-6 and omega-9 along with brain friendly Co-Q10 and vitamin D. Containing a powerhouse of nutrition, your brain power will surge in no time.
