EPA and DHA needed for optimal nervous system function

A report appearing in the December 2009 issue of the American
Psychological Association journal Behavioral Neuroscience revealed
that diets that fail to provide enough of the omega-3 fatty acids
eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) may
negatively affect the nervous system. The finding could impact
the understanding of information-processing deficits that occur
in schizophrenia, bipolar disease, obsessive-compulsive disorder,
attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Huntington’s
disease and other nervous system disorders.

Editor’s Note: Omega-3 fatty acids are one of the super nutrients that help protect the heart, eyes, brain and are used by every cell in the body. For more information on eye health and omega-3 fatty acids, see the “Research” section at Natural Eye Care Research
