Lindsey Duncan, Nutrition & Dietetics, answeredOur brains are made up of 60% fat, so if you aren't getting enough essential fatty acids (EFAs), your brain, including memory and mental clarity, is the first to suffer. EFAs protect our bodies from degenerative conditions, help us maintain energy and protect our tissues and organs. EFAs are often referred to as omega fatty acids, consisting of omega-3, -6 and -9, as well as the rare omega-7, found in superfoods like sea buckthorn. Omega fatty acids are important for everything from smooth skin to fighting depression and heart health, including reducing cholesterol.
