Eat This To Get Sharp

So you misplaced your car keys. Again. A lack of omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin B12, both brain-boosting nutrients, could be to blame. “Omega-3s are loaded with DHA, a type of fatty acid that helps promote well-functioning synapses,” says Joseph Quinn, MD, associate professor of neurology at Oregon Health and Science University in Portland. What does this mean? It keeps neurons in your brain firing more effectively. A lack of B12, meanwhile, has been linked with confusion, numbness, and fatigue. Up to 15 percent of Americans could be low on B12, according to the NIH, in part because some people may have trouble absorbing the nutrient. Get you brain back on track by chowing down on fatty, omega-3 rich fish like mackerel, trout, herring, tuna, salmon….Health Magazine.
