At a young age, optimal brain development is crucial as our bodies are growing and we learn at a fast rate. As we get into our middle years we need or minds sharp to excel at school and in the work place. In our senior years, a major concern for many people is that long-term and short-term memory slowly declines. Not everyone is affected at the same but everyone could benefit from nutritional support when it comes to brain health. There has been an increase in recent years of children with learning disabilities as well as dementia among seniors which is often an emotional and financial burden on their families and caregivers. Stress, inadequate nutrition, as well as chemicals in our food and water supply all affect our body systems, including our brain. Children, students, professionals, seniors and anyone feeling that they need a little boost in the cognitive department should strongly consider supporting their brain health with a healthy source of omega-3’s.
Our brains contain mainly water and fat (about 75%) with fat covering about 60%. No wonder fish oil supplementation makes a significant difference in improving our memory and other brain functions. However, it is not only omega-3’s (DHA and EPA) that our brains need to function optimally. Some of the other nutrients that work synergistically with Omega -3 fish oil are:
- Phosphatidylserine – improves memory, cognition, mood and improves brain cell communication. May also be beneficial in improving symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia.
- Lutein and zeaxanthin – powerful antioxidants found in our eyes that play an important role in our vision health. They protect the eye from UV radiation and slow down age-related eye health issues.
- Vitamin D –deficiency has been linked to disorders including Parkinson’s disease, autism, dementia, multiple sclerosis.
