Do You Want A Better Brain?

Aug 17, 2007
Satisfied with your smarts? Or does it sometimes seem like you could be making wiser decisions, remembering more ("Now where did I put my pen?") or just plain thinking better?

Well, if so, you might want to consider eating more fish and taking Omega 3 supplements for a better brain? This is true. That is, it's true if the fish and the supplements are the right kind.

Our need for omega 3 fish oil with EPA and DHA actually begins with conception. EPA and DHA make up around 70% of a newborn's brain and are the main component of the new baby's nervous system. But that's just the beginning. Omega 3 fish oil is not just healthy brain food for babies. It's also brain food for children, adolescents and adults.

As a matter of fact, tons of scientific research has proven that high quality fish oil can affect numerous areas of your mental, emotional and physical health in many positive ways. And that's important for your relationships, the way that you feel and your financial future as well as your health.

For example, studies show that omega 3 fish oil can prevent stress related diseases for those who are under psychological pressure. And Japanese research found that students who took high quality fish oil supplements had much less irritability, defensiveness and irrationality. They also got better grades and had more fun.

Other studies show far fewer cases of depression in countries with diets high in specific kinds of omega 3 fish consumption. On the other hand, low levels of DHA have been linked to a higher incidence of suicide, violence and depression. Wow!

But, that's not all. A high intake of fish oil has shown a decrease in age-related memory loss and a significantly lower risk of developing Alzheimer's disease. Plus, Alzheimer's patients who started taking omega 3 fish oil supplements experienced a great deal of improvement in their overall quality of life.

Research at Harvard Medical School has also successfully used fish oil supplements to treat manic depression and bipolar disorder. Other scientific studies, done in Britain, showed positive results in treating schizophrenia. And the list goes on and on.

So, if your brain is still functioning well enough to "read the writing on the wall", you'll probably want to start eating more fish and taking a high quality omega 3 fish oil supplement with EPA and DHA. This is not only the best thing to do for a better brain, it's also the smart thing to do to live a happy, healthy, long life. After all, you want your brain to be all there when you get there. Don't you?
