Your Brain is your greatest asset. How often have we heard prevention is better than cure?A recent report by the CDC(Centers for Disease Control) on the CBS News declared that “Alzheimer's Deaths are Skyrocketing”.Failing to feed your most vital organ (the brain) with the proper nutrition can lead to the early onset of Alzheimer's Disease /Dementia. Dementia is a term which describes a range of conditions which cause damage to our brain. This damage affects memory, thinking, language and our ability to perform everyday tasks.
Researchers and Scientists looking to find natural ways to support brain health, and improve functions like memory, recall, and mood. Found that daily consumption of Curcumin or Omega-3 fatty acids gives older people better memory and recall. Curcumin can be found mostly in curries, while fish is one of the best sources of omega-3 fatty acids. Remember when your mother said “Eat your fish it will make you brainy” Of course not everyone likes fish or curries.
Scientists have identified two ways Omega-3 supports the brain:
1. Omega-3 fatty acids reduce inflammation.
A comprehensive review of omega-3 fatty acid research noted numerous studies that show decreases in inflammation in the presence of these fatty acids.
2. Omega-3 fatty acids increase blood flow to the brain.
An article published in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease reports patients who have high levels of omega-3 levels had greater blood flow to areas of the brain responsible for memory, learning and mood. Lead author of the study Daniel G. Amen, MD, of the Amen Clinics Inc., Costa Mesa, CA, said:
"This is very important research because it shows a correlation between lower omega-3 fatty acid levels and reduced brain blood flow to regions important for learning, memory, depression and dementia
A closer look at Omega-3
Omega-3 fatty acids have 2 major types of fatty acids, which have the most helpful impact for our brain.
ALA (alpha-linolenic acid) - found in some vegetable oils, such flaxseed, chia seed, rapeseed (canola), soybean and in walnuts. ALA is also found in some green vegetables, such as Brussels sprouts, kale, spinach, and salad greens. The body only partially converts ALA to EPA and DHA.
EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) - found mostly in fatty fish.
