To get enough omega 3 from your diet, you should eat oily fish at least three days a week. Preferably a pure variety, such as fresh and uncultivated #salmon from Alaska.
Then #fishoilsupplements are a good alternative. They should preferably be liquid and contain polyphenols.

#Darkvegetables such as #spinach, #kale and dandelion leaves contain above average amounts of valuable dietary fibre, vitamins and minerals that are essential for a healthy brain. They can also help to restore a nervous system that is is affected by, for example, chronic stress.
Berries such as #blueberries and #gojiberries are not only vitamin bombs, but also contain a lot of antioxidants. These are substances that fight harmful free radicals in your brain and slow down cell aging. In short: they keep you young and sharp!
