Brain health – Part 1
It happens to all of us. We step outside of our room to do something and blank out. We step into the kitchen, open up our refrigerator, and stare inside. As we get older, our cognitive health becomes increasingly important. Besides relying on post-it notes all over the house and planners that are colour-coded, we can try to naturally make our brain remember more and more even though naturally, as we get older, we may remember less and less.
We start with focusing on our diet – if we indulge in any food high in Omega 3 fatty acids, DHA and EPA, we are reducing our risk of dementia, and increasing our memory and attention. Find these 3 important brain foods in flaxseed oil, add to salads, smoothies and in dressing and in fish, there are also a wide variety of supplements, with some education recommended rather than over dosing on poor quality inputs not found naturally in our daily foods.
