Think Fish

In a Three Stooges episode, Curly remarks that "Fish is brain food." Moe's come back, "You ought to eat a whale" brushes aside the old wives' tale. But results of recent studies back up the idea that fish promotes brain function. Norwegian research involving 2,000 elderly subjects found that those who consumed more than 10 grams of fish daily posted better test scores and overall cognitive performance than people who ate less. A 3-year Dutch study of 404 people aged 50 to 70 showed lower levels of cognitive decline in participants with higher baseline concentrations of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) was also cited in a New Zealand study of more than 2,400 people that demonstrated a link between circulating concentrations of EPA and both physical and mental health.

The Bigger Picture: With all these reports on the apparent benefits of omega-3 fatty acids, you don't have to dust off the tackle box or charter a boat. In fact, you don't even have to enjoy seafood to realize the potential benefits of omega-3 fatty acids. ON's Fish Oil Softgels are Enteric-Coated to eliminate any fishy aftertaste. With 180 mg of EPA and 120 mg of docosahexenoic acid (DHA) per serving, they offer a smart alternative for healthy living.
