DHA (omega-3) accounts for 40% of the polyunsaturated fatty acids in the brain, and 60% in the retina of the eye, so DHA is very important for visual and neurological needs.
Several studies suggest omega-3 may protect against Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, and reduce memory loss through ageing.
Food that have a high content of omega-3 includes:
- most fishes
- almond nuts
- chia seeds
- soya beans
