ALA ( alpha linolenic acid ) is plant source Omega 3 and is found in large quantities in flaxseed . A healthy, well nourished  body will convert  ALA to the longer chain omega 3 fatty acids EPA and DHA




A diet lacking in omega-3 fatty acids,  may cause the brain to age faster and lose some of its memory and cognitive capabilities, says a new study by researchers at UCLA (University of California at Los Angeles).



Published in Neurology, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology , the research demonstrated that people with lower levels of omega-3 fatty acids have lower brain volumes equivalent to approximately two years of structural brain aging.
The 1,575 dementia-free study subjects (average age 67) underwent MRI brain scans and were given tests measuring mental function, body mass and omega-3 fatty acid levels in their red blood cells.
Researchers found that those whose DHA levels were in the bottom 25% had lower brain volumes than those with higher DHA levels.




In addition, those whose levels of all omega-3 fatty acids were in the bottom 25% scored lower on tests of visual memory and executive function, including problem-solving, multi-tasking and abstract thinking.


Flaxseed ( Linseed) is one of the best food sources of ALA (plant based Omega 3). With regular use, you should notice that skin becomes softer , hair shinier and nails stronger. ! Now improved brain function may be another thing you can add to that list !
