Tip of the Week! - Giving your brain an oil change

I thought it would be a good idea to bring back Tip of the Week!  Each week I will provide a food or health-based tip that I have found either useful, interesting or fun. As always, please read my disclaimer located in the top right-hand section of my blog. Thank you!

I would really enjoy to read any tip that you may have so feel free to leave one in the comment section!

Our brains are 60% fat.  Therefore it needs healthy fat.   Healthy fats are essential fats such as Omega 3.  The best source of Omega 3s are Fish Oil supplements, seafood and fish oil. Nuts, olive oil, flaxseed oil and ground flaxseed are other good sources.

Many children are deficient in Omega 3 oils due to, most often, food preferences and exposure to unhealthy foods.  Luckily the imbalance is easy to correct by feeding your child/ren seafood, fresh 'pure' food and fewer prepackaged foods.

A few signs that your child may need an "oil change":
> Poor school performance
>mood swings
>skin: dry, flaky, scaly
>allergies: asthma, hay fever

Give your family an oil change by eating pure foods filled with Omega 3.  It's easier than you think!

  2. I have been making a trail mix that I fill a mason jar with and leave on the kitchen counter. Filled with almonds, walnuts (loaded in omega 3), pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, pecans, cranberries etc.... I can't keep it full! All of us stop by and grab a handful. So good for you!

  3. There were also extensive studies conducted in Europe where this Vinpocetine is also largely used to fight symptoms of motor disorders, acute stroke and also dizziness. A few studies also indicate a likely value in improving hearing and visual acuity as well. 7 kind of nootropics smart drugs
