|Mental health is important to all humans. Over 50% of your brain is made of good fat. Twenty percent of this good fat comes from EPA and DHA. Remember EPA and DHA comes from:
1. Omega-3 fatty acids
2. Eating fish
3. Borage oil
4. Primrose oil
5. Parilla oil
6. NOK oil
I have covered all these oils in other articles except NKO Krill Oil. This oil is the new kid on the block. It comes from Antarctic krill, a crustacean found in the Antarctic waters. It provides EPA and DHA like borage oil does, but its chemical structure is phospholipids. Phospholipids are easier for your cells to absorb than borage oil's EPA and DHA, which is in the form of triglycerides.
Lecithin is also in order since it helps to provide choline, a precursor to the memory neurotransmitter acetylcholine. It also provides the chemicals to produce RNA. Heart disease is closely related to Alzheimer's because the heart must be strong enough to pump plenty of blood into the brain and the arteries must open enough to circulate enough blood through the brain and throughout your body.
Here is my recommendation for supplementing with the essential fatty acids:
1. Eat more good fish, at least once a week and occasionally twice a week
2. Eat less fat and particularly saturated fat. A good number for daily fat intake is 15-20% of your overall calories.
3. Take daily, flax seed oil and olive oil for the omega-3 and omega-6 oils
4. Take a daily supplement of NKO or Borage oil, which supplies EPA and DHA
