Food for Brains

When you heard that ‘fish is good for your brain’, my best bet is that you didn’t consider why or how, you just accepted that it did and that was that. Am I right?

Well because here at Dockside we supply the freshest, most delicious seafood, we thought it’d be a good idea to tell you how seafood actually improves your brain power.

A Healthier Brain

Dockside’s salmonsardinesmackerel and trout contain a fatty acid which goes by the name of omega-3. When we eat fat, our bodies take this acid from it and it’s used to build brain cell membranes. This benefits your brain’s health, because the membranes begin to build up in your brain’s cell wall.

Lower Risk of Dementia and Alzheimer’s

Ernest Schaefer, MD of Tufts University, found that people begin to make less DHA—a form of omega-3 found in fish—as they grow older, which can decrease their cognitive abilities. Schaefer discovered that people who eat three servings of fish per week have a much lower risk of developing conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease and dementia compared to those who did not eat as much fish. So what are you waiting for? Order now!

Increased Learning Performance

It is essential that we consume enough protein each week because it helps construct amino acids that enable our brain to communicate with the rest of our body. Luckily enough for all you fish-lovers, our fish is full of protein which contains bundles of amino acids that our body can’t make itself. The high protein benefits our brain and can sometimes help us perform better when learning new skills!

Brain Development

As well as containing plenty of protein, our fish also contains vitamin D, a nutrient that is not naturally found in many other foods. Vitamin D is essential for helping the brain to develop properly as well as helping it to function. The nutrient helps your body to absorb the calcium you take in from food—which then puts the healthy function of your brain into work.

To improve your brain’s development as well as your overall health, why don’t you order today? You’ll be amazed at how much it can benefit you.
