The Right Kind of Fat

Don’t Fear the Fat

The right fat that is! Foods containing essential fatty acids help keep your brain functioning properly. The British Journal of Psychology noted that research weighs too heavily on managing neurotransmitters while ignoring the nutrients that our brains actually need. It is believed that up to 80% of your brain’s mass is made up of fatty tissue. A diet that is lacking these essential fats can lead to an array of adverse mental symptoms from chronic fatigue to depression and anxiety. Thankfully, all the foods you need to get your daily dose of essential fatty acids are not hard to find. Fish, especially salmon, is famous for being high in Omega-3 fatty acids which are known to facilitate brain, heart and joint health. Adding avocados, almonds, sunflower seeds as well as coconut oil into your diet can ensure you are getting enough of this vital nutrient.
