Want to keep your brain young?

Want to keep your brain young? Eat plenty of fish, nuts and seeds. US researchers who have recently examined two separate parts of the brain associated with memory and intelligence, the integrity of which is known to deteriorate with age, found that omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids offer notable neuroprotective effects to adults aged 65 to 75. These compounds are particularly concentrated in many seeds and nuts, as well as fish and fish oil. Be sure to include these in your diet to maintain a healthy brain.
