Healthy Brain Pills: Hope In A Bottle?
Does the idea of spending your golden years in a childish fog, unable to remember the past or contemplate the future, but rather stuck in the past, scare you? If you know someone who has Alzheimer’s disease or dementia, you’re probably very interested in doing whatever you can to prevent this disease from robbing you of your memories – even by taking brain-healthy pills.
Researchers are trying to determine the cause of these diseases, especially as the population ages. What they discovered surprised them: the number of people per capita affected by these diseases is not the same in the world. In fact, in countries like Japan, Sweden or Norway, people are several times less likely to suffer from these degenerative conditions.
When they investigated, they found that in most coastal countries, test subjects had significantly higher plasma levels of DHA, one of the main omega 3 fatty acids.
Omega 3 is an essential fatty acid, and as such it must be ingested – it cannot be made by the body.
So, were people in these other nations taking some kind of brain-healthy pills?
It turns out the secret is in the sea! They eat much higher amounts of omega 3 rich fish and kelp (seaweed), which are very high dietary sources of omega 3.
Omega 3s are a building block of the brain, and when we lack these fatty acids, our brain cells become rigid and are not able to “signal” to each other properly.
The result? Confusion, forgetfulness and other common symptoms of degenerative brain diseases.
The evidence is so compelling that scientists are now suggesting that we all take healthy brain pills in the form of high quality DHA-rich omega 3 supplements.
It’s not always easy to choose a supplement that won’t harm you with impurities, but instead fortify you with brain-enriching fatty acids. There are no national standards to guide supplement labeling.
