How many times have you heard that fish are brain food?
Well, we’re saying it again – and we have more proof. This time, it comes from the Fatty Acid Research Institute.
Their research found that people with high blood levels of the Omega-3 fatty acid, called DHA, were nearly 50% less likely to develop dementia of any kind, including Alzheimer’s.
And other research shows a link between the fatty acid DHA and improved cognitive performance and increased brain volume.
The reason? Because DHA limits the production and accumulation of a brain toxin linked to Alzheimer’s.
The fish that contain the most Omega-3 DHAs are: Mackerel, salmon, herring, sardines, and oysters. And you should aim to get two servings a week.
