Fatty Acids and brain health
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) is a fatty acid that is found in high concentration in the gray matter of the brain. DHA plays a structural role in brain cell membranes, which are important for the transmission of brain signals. DHA makes cell membranes more fluid therefore maintaining good communication between the brain cells. Low levels of DHA can affect memory and learning, Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) may help maintain blood flow and brain performance.
By young adulthood, our brains are biologically mature. Even after that, our brain functions are involved in continuous adaptation to environment and personal development. Some cognitive functions, particularly higher level abilities, keep getting better until middle age, but others start to decline even in the mid 30s. There is a general trend that brain function and performance may be affected as we age and so it is important to look after their future health.
