Is eating fish really good for your brain?
In a Nutshell : Yes, especially really oily fish which are rich in omega-3
Omega-3 fatty acids called Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are vital for brain growth and development, functioning and the production of neurotransmitters – the chemicals which relay signals between the brain cells.
The human body cannot easily synthesise these fatty acids and so a constant supply is very important. Just like a healthy machine your brain needs oil, and this comes in the form of omega-3.
Foods Rich in Omega-3
Winter and summer squash
Green leafy vegetables like kale, spinach and collard greens
*Bake, broil or steam them to retain the most Omega 3. In general, smoking and frying drain the seafood of about a third of their Omega 3 supply.
