This Omega-3 Fatty Acid Can Help Protect Your Brain From Alzheimer’s

In recent years you may have heard a few mentions about diets high in Omega-3 Fatty Acids. These acids are revered as being highly beneficial to your health for various reasons. A common source for Omega-3 is fish, which we are encouraged to eat to obtain some of these fatty acids naturally. One of these acids stands out more than the rest when it comes to helping protect the brain from Alzheimer’s disease. If you are able to consume a regular amount of this essential compound, you could be doing yourself a service for years to come.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids Can Help Prevent Alzheimer'sThis one particular Omega-3 is called “docosahexaenoic acid“, or DHA for short. This term, DHA, may sound familiar to you since you may have seen it listed before on puppy food or even baby formula. For developing infants, DHA helps provide fats that protect the brain during early development. That same type of “coating” provided to infants in their younger years can still be beneficial to adults later in life. Unfortunately the only way to maintain the healthy balance of DHA in your brain is to eat foods that naturally contain it. If not eaten regularly, they will wear off and minimize their effectiveness.

This Omega-3 fatty acid keeps the brain well nourished, and can help prevent a condition known as brain atrophy which causes parts of our brain to become less active in our later years. People who have diets higher in Omega-3’s such as DHA tend to have a more active and functioning brain when they reach ages over 70 years old. You shouldn’t wait until you are older, or begin to notice symptoms of memory loss before you change up your diet either. Chances are that by the time you notice a change in brain function as you get older, any loss may be permanent, though it is never too late to start taking better care of yourself.

If you are looking for foods that contain a rich amount of DHA, try adding some walnuts to your diet. You can add them to a salad, or even just eat a handful of the shelled nut. Salmon is also very rich in DHA, as well as some other fish. By adding some salmon to your regular dinner routine throughout the month, you may be doing yourself a favor in the long run. While many out there chastise fats for being unhealthy, an understanding of what is good for you and what isn’t will do you a lot of good. While we may not be babies anymore, our natural need for DHA will continue with us for the rest of our lives.
