Omega-3s are known as essential fats, meaning our bodies can't produce them and we must get them through our diet. Foods high in omega-3 include cold water fish like salmon.
Omega-3s are vital nutrients for maintaining healthy brain function and have been linked to healthy aging throughout life, including pregnancy and early life. They are also used to fight inflammation in the brain.
BRAIN TIP: Our omega-3s contain 500mg DHA and 150mg EPA. These are essential fatty acids required for rebuilding new cells. In fact, they are often referred to as the building blocks for healthy cell membranes. These cell membranes provide critical support for the brain connections that support healthy memory, cognition, and emotional well-being.
