Omega 3s are fatty acids that form the building blocks of the brain - vital for function and development. Those struggling with attention disorders should ensure their brains receive the correct nutrients to maintain optimum function. It can be tricky to ingest these ingredients naturally as our bodies are not so efficient in converting them. EPA is present in the membranes of our cells. It's the source of substances called eicosanoids that help to regulate healthy cells, tissues and organs. It's been known to promote a healthy mood and heart. DHA is a building block for all human cells. It facilitates nerve cells to make functional connections (synapses) and supports healthy memory and overall cognition. Research is underway regarding the role of DHA in attention disorders, and in many instances, children testing positive have been found to have a naturally lower DHA level. Research is also being undertaken regarding the role of EPA levels in cases of depression. Similarly, the levels of DHA found in Alzheimer & dementia patients are prompting additional studies. It is thought DHA may reduce the risk of decline in mental abilities.
