Scientists: fish makes children smarter and healthier
A group of American scientists from the University of North Carolina was once again able to prove the benefits of eating fish for children.
It turns out that seafood and rivers have a beneficial effect on children's intelligence. It is known that phosphorus contained in fish is an essential trace element for the brain to function.
However, Omega-3 fatty acids, or more precisely, decosahexaenoic acid (DHA), has a direct influence on the development of active brain activity.
This is due to the fact that approximately 20% of the sheath of human nerve cells is precisely DHA, which are involved in the transmission of signals between nerve cells. If there is a shortage of this acid in the body, the transfer becomes noticeably slower, which ultimately affects the intellectual abilities of children.
Thus, if a child has poor learning outcomes, it is possible that this is caused by a lack of Omega-3 acids in the body.
