Your brain

George Herald - - Back To The Books 2018 -

The brain be­ne­fits of o­me­ga-3 fats are de­ri­ved mos­t­ly from DHA, which is found in high con­cen­tra­ti­ons in the ce­re­bral cor­tex, the a­rea of the brain re­spon­si­ble for me­mo­ry, lan­gua­ge, cre­a­ti­vi­ty, and at­ten­ti­on. The be­st food sour­ces are a­ni­mals al­lo­wed to get their food from their na­tu­ral ha­bi­tat, li­ke wild-caug­ht fish, grass-fed beef, pas­tu­re-rai­sed pork, free-ran­ge chic­ken, and wild ga­me.

The food py­ramid shows the com­po­si­ti­on of a ba­lan­ced diet con­sis­ting of un­pro­ces­sed foods.Wal­nuts don’t on­ly look a litt­le li­ke a brain, it is al­so good for the brain.

Your brain is an a­ma­zing ma­chi­ne that needs pro­per nutri­ti­on.
