FISH MAKE YOU SMARTER?



This is merely facts from studies on fish in relation to brain. Everyone has liberty of right to choose what kind of food to go down into their tummy, and this information will help everyone to make informed action with regard to their health and life. Benefit of fish to our health is not a guarded secret. We are as what we eat, body health and inclusive of our brain. As taking drugs and smoking can have down effect on our brain, so are other supplement and food can have good effect on our brain such as good for memory and preventing brain deficient disease such as Alzheimer. Fish is proven good for your heart. What other benefits that associated with it? Claim of fish good for our brain could better explained through some scientific facts..

Fish Good for Healthy Outlook
Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) a key component of fish oil, is an omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid that occurs in fish oil, which along with docosahexaenoic acid DHA has been linked with numerous health benefits. This will also explain that mother’s milk which high content of DHA better for your baby rather than formula milk. The February 2008 issue of the American Journal o Clinical Nutrition reported the outcome of a Canadian clinical trial which found a beneficial effect of EPA on middle aged women suffering from psychological distress. The researcher noted that polyunsaturated fatty acid were needed by brain cell membranes and that a deficiency of omega 3 fatty acid could impact the transmission of serotonin a neurohormone which control mood. EPA and DHA have anti inflammatory and other effects on brain biochemistry, including an ability to alter the expression of enzymes.

Fish make you smarter?
There is some evidence to show that poor dietary intakes or low blood levels of these omega-3 fats can result in learning difficulties, behavioral problems, and mental illness. This may indicate a strong relationship between eating fish and brain development. Sixty per cent of the brain is composed of fat - but not just any fat. DHA and EPA are good fats. DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) is important for normal brain and vision development. The increased intelligence and academic performance of breastfed compared with formula-fed infants has been attributed in part to the increased DHA content of human milk. The saturated fat that comes primarily from meat and full-fat dairy products is not what the brain cells need. They do need polyunsaturated fats, especially the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids found in fish, which are called eicosapentenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexenoic acid (DHA). Fish get them from the algae they eat. (Some leafy green vegetables, as well as walnuts, flaxseed, and canola oil, contain shorter-chain omega-3s; these are not readily converted by our bodies into EPA and DHA.)[1] Cultures whose diet is high in DHA have a lower incidence of degenerative diseases of the central nervous system, such as multiple sclerosis. Some children with ADHD and poor school performance have been shown to have insufficient DHA in their diet.EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) is also important in brain and eye development and function. EPA has been used to treat depression, bipolar disorder, Huntington's chorea, chronic fatigue syndrome (myalgic encephalomyelitis), obsessive compulsive disorder, and schizophrenia. [2]

According to Dr Shawn Somerset of the School of Public Health at Griffith University in Australia: "No study has proved that eating more fish will make you smarter."So it is not true that the more fish you eat, the smarter you become. If this were so, then Eskimos, who eat perhaps the highest amounts of fish as any people anywhere in the world, would all be geniuses. Yet having survived for so many centuries in such a brutally harsh environment, perhaps they are.

There are saying that Kelantanese and Terengganu people smart because they eat a lot of budu.... don’t know but I eat budu he he..

Health authorities usually recommend the eating of two or three servings of fish per week for most people.Words to the wise about fish-oil supplements: They can have adverse effects: nausea, diarrhea, belching. In people with uncontrolled hypertension or those taking anticoagulants, high doses of fish oil may increase the risk of stroke.One of concern with fish oil supplement is that they may contain toxins from oceans which are increasingly polluted. This is may be not founded; eat fish body may have lesser toxin than its liver.
