Salmon of the America’s has been promoting the term Salmon is Brain Food™ for quite some time. More studies are being completed showing a link between omega 3 fatty acids and promoting a healthy brain. Omega-3 fatty acids, such as those found in fatty fish (like salmon and sardines), appear to have many health benefits. New research shows they may even build the brain’s gray matter. In one study, healthy adults who ate the most omega-3 fatty acids had the most gray matter in three brain areas that regulate mood. How do omega-3 fatty acids help the brain? Scientists are still studying the connection.
