When is the last time you had fish for dinner? If you can’t remember, it may be more than the passage of time that’s to blame. Research suggests that improved memory is just one of many brain-boosting benefits associated with eating more fish.
You are what you eat! You’ve likely heard that omega-3 fatty acids are good for your health. But one in particular, docosahexaenoic acid, or DHA, goes straight to your head. DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid that is essential for brain health and it’s required to keep the brain functioning normally and efficiently. Brain and nervous system tissues are partly made up of fat, and research shows they have a special preference for DHA in particular.
Think of fish consumption as a savings plan for your brain, not a winning lottery ticket. To reap the brain benefits of DHA, you need to maintain a consistent intake of DHA-rich foods, like fish, fish oil, algal supplements or other DHA-fortified foods, in your diet.
