Food To Boost Your Brainpower – Oily Fish

Thinking of giving your brain a healthy boost to kick-start your Monday? What’s better than Oily fish.

Do you know that essential fatty acids (EFAs) cannot be made by the body and must be obtained through diet? The most effective omega-3 fats occur naturally in oily fish as Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).

They are good for healthy brain function, the heart, joints and general wellbeing. Oily fish contains EPA and DHA in a ready-made form, which enables the body to use it easily. The main sources of oily fish include salmon, trout, mackerel, herring, sardines, pilchards and kippers.
