Your brain is composed mostly of fat and so that it can function efficiently it needs the right kinds of fat.

This is why oily fish or fish oil containing Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) is so important in the diet; your brain needs it to run smoothly, but cannot produce it.

The Omega-3 fatty acid, especially, is an important ingredient for optimal brain function: It is a rich source of docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), a fatty acid that is found in high concentration in the grey matter of the brain.

By making cell membranes more fluid, Omega-3 fatty acids, especially DHA, improve communication between the brain cells. Hence the healthy advice to take food & supplements containing Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids.

It is also worth a note that the brain is composed of a large percentage of water…so remember to keep fluids replenished.

Happy Healthy Friday🙂
