Our brains is composed of up to 50% fatty acid mainly DHA. As our bodies cannot naturally produce omega 3, it must be replenished regularly with food or supplement intake.
Daily consumption of omega 3 improves cognition and memory. Regular consumption especially in adults may also prevent any mental decline.
It also plays a vital role when it comes to moods. Omega 3 reduces inflammation in the brain and helps the brain's neurotransmitters to communicate.
Emerging findings from trials also showed that omega 3 reduces symptoms associated with ADHD, brain injuries such as concussions and post concussion syndrome.
