Omega-3 and the Brain

Fatty acids may have incredible effects on brain health 

Brain function is one of the most important aspects of overall health and wellness. You consult your doctor for an earache, a bad cough, or a twisted ankle, but do you pay enough attention to your brain? The brain controls fundamental body functions like your breath and heartbeat, so it rightfully deserves even more care and attention to help it function in an optimal way.

Omega-3 fatty acids have attracted a lot of attention for their impact on the cardiovascular system and many people are recommended Omega-3’s for heart health. We are now discovering that they are also vital for brain function and development.

Two of the Omega-3 fatty acids most commonly associated with brain function are eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Both EPA and DHA have been proven to promote increased brain cell communication and also preserve the health of cell membranes¹.

Recent breakthrough’s in the scientific community have begun to tout DHA as helpful in preventing memory loss, and even beneficial in preventing Alzheimer’s disease in adults. These groundbreaking studies and research are ongoing, as medical experts study Omega-3’s and their potentially significant anti-aging effects on the brain.

Depression and its relation to brain function and brain development is timely right now, as our global mental health crisis has skyrocketed in recent months, due to COVID-19. This disease and subsequent mental health issues affects millions of people around the world. Further understanding of potential treatments for better brain health, including Omega-3 fatty acids, will be beneficial to our global wellness, and studies will likely continue.

Taking an Omega-3 supplement for heart health, which studies have unequivocally proven lowers mortality rates², can also be extremely advantageous for your brain, too.

Omega-3’s can help to combat inflammation, and inflammation can lead to symptoms of depression, brain fog, anxiety, and a lack of focus. Increasing your EPA and DHA can help alleviate these symptoms. Omega-3’s are not only for the aging; high school and college students can benefit from managing their brain health as well, nourishing brain health for stressful educational environments is a smart thing to do.

We all can agree that doing our best work depends on our brains functioning at peak performance. For students, mid-life professionals, busy parents, and the aging, there are reasons to add this supplement to your diet. From helping to increase focus, to preventing memory loss and slowing down the brain’s aging process, Omega-3’s offer significant benefits to our most complex organ. Caring for the central operator of our nervous system is paramount to achieving greater personal health and wellness.
