Brain protection for adults

N-3 oils protect the adult brain for the same reasons they protect the child's brain. Most people assume that after birth the brain is fully formed and no further development takes place. Nothing could be further from the truth. The brain is always remolding itself and developing new circuits, a process we call plasticity. The more we learn and use our minds, the more active this process becomes. Optimal plasticity depends on an adequate supply of DHA in the diet.

It is known that the frontal lobes have the most DHA and that it is very sensitive to dietary deficiencies. It is the frontal lobes that allow us to direct our attention, control social urges, establish memories, and understand certain aspects of language (theory of mind).
