Health Tip of The Day: Eating Oily Fish Like Salmon Could Help Boost Your Brain Function

What Science Says: Oily fish — like salmon, trout, mackerel, herring and sardines — are loaded with omega-3 essential fatty acids. These essential fats, especially the omega-3 oil DHA, help stimulate the growth of new cells in the brain’s memory center, boosting your brain’s cognitive abilities. Eating oily fish at least once a week has also been found to decrease your risk of developing Alzheimer’s, so it’s clear that this habit is crucial for maintaining healthy brain function.

Why It Matters: As we age, our cognitive function naturally begins to decline. Unfortunately, scientists have yet to discover a magical pill that will keep this from happening. In the meantime, there is something that you can do on your own to preserve your mental dexterity and that includes choosing the right foods to eat on a weekly basis. [Swirled]
