Memory Boost: Seafood + Brain Health


Hello, Seafoodies!

Our brains have been working overtime in 2020. The good news is that eating a diet rich in seafood can boost brain health! Loaded with important nutrients like complete proteins and omega-3s, seafood checks all the boxes… system. Seafood also contains selenium, a trace mineral with antioxidant properties that may help to reduce cognitive decline as we age.

Seafood has long been referred to as “brain food.” And, here’s one reason why: According to Harvard Health, fatty fish like salmon, sardines and tuna contain the omega-3s DHA and EPA, which may help to improve memory, stop inflammation and slow cognitive decline. Promising research suggests that  omega-3s may help protect against Alzheimer’s disease and may help improve symptoms of ADHD. In addition to its brain boosting benefits, omega-3s and selenium in seafood also help protect the heart.
