Your brain needs the right type of fat

Your brain needs the right type of fat

Did you know that your brain is 70% fat, but it needs to have the right type of fat?

Brain cells need to be flexible to function properly and your brain incorporates the fats you eat into the cell membranes — this is why Omega 3 fats are so important.

It is also important to eliminate the trans fats found in hydrogenated and partially hydrogenated vegetable oils because these are hard fats, like a plastic; they make cells rigid so they lose their elasticity and flexibility, not good cells to have in the brain.

Make sure you are eating oily fish or taking linseed oil (flaxseed oil) if you are vegetarian as these will give you some valuable Omega 3 fatty acids.

Research has shown that by increasing your intake of fish you may be able to reduce the risk of dementia by 60%.
