Nourishing the Brain

Demonized for decades, fat is now recognised as one solution for many brain related disorders such as depression and Alzheimer’s. Our brains require Essential Fatty Acids (EFA) but unlike cholesterol that is produced in our liver and intestines, our bodies do not produce EFA. We have to get them from the food we eat. These essential fatty acids known as Omega 3 and 6’s help build brains structures as well as the Nerves and Neurotransmitters required for optimal health. Good sources of omega 3’s include sardines, salmon, nuts, seeds, avocados, olive oils and free range eggs.
