Research has found that eating a diet rich in omega 3 fatty acids boosts brain health, especially networks involved in thinking and attention. Omega 3 fatty acids are found in fish such as tuna, salmon, and mackerel. The particular omega-3 fatty acid found to be important for brain health is docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). 600-1000mg of DHA daily is recommended for optimal health.
