Are Omega-3s Good for Your Brain?

Omega-3 is easily the most popular supplement in America. Roughly 8% of adults—or about 19 million people—take some kind of omega-3 fatty acid supplement, according to the latest figures from the National Institutes of Health.

There’s a reason fish oil capsules and other omega-3 supplements are so popular . “Omega-3 fatty acids are involved in many different fundamental [brain] processes,” says Simon Dyall , a principal academic and head of nutrition at Bournemouth University in the UK.

Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids—namely EPA and DHA—and their metabolites influence gene expression, oxidative stress, cerebral blood flow, levels of neurotransmitters, and other brain-related processes such as the production of new neurons, Dyall explains. DHA in particular is an essential building block of the brain’s cell membranes. So at a molecular level—like a house without bricks or walls—the brain could not exist without omega-3 fatty acids.

If price doesn't matter, I would recommend Dr.Mercola's krill oil. I am sure there are others that are comparable but I bet he oversees the production process. It's $63 + shipping for a 3 month supply.
