Brains and Kids

Fish oil has repeatedly been shown to help the learning ability of children. This probably due to the long-chain omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oil. Interestingly, one of those omega-3’s is DHA which is found in a human mother’s milk. An English study is following 60 infants aged 20-36 months. The infants are supplemented daily with fish oil. They have found that in only 3 months learning skill performance of 60% of the infants “has improved dramatically”. Some of these children have made up a 6 month deficit in learning skills in just those three months. Another study recruited pregnant women aged 18-40 who planned on breast-feeding exclusively for four months. The control group received capsules of vegetable oil and the remaining women received fish oil capsules daily after they had given birth.

The body can convert ALA to EPA and DHA, but this is a difficult and inefficient conversion. Fish oil has repeatedly been shown to help the learning ability of children.

Should You Be Using Coconut Oil?

Researchers have studied populations of Polynesian islands, their traditional diets, and the effect on dental and overall health. Coconut was the chief source of caloric energy in these groups. These populations were healthy and trim, and exhibited positive vascular health, with no evidence that the high saturated fat intake from eating coconuts had a harmful effect. The many benefits of coconut oil are finally reaching the mainstream. Benefits like: Promoting your heart health Promoting weight loss when and if you need it Supporting your immune system health Supporting a healthy metabolism Providing you with an immediate energy source Helping to keep your skin healthy and youthful looking Supporting the proper functioning of your thyroid gland Only one oil is stable enough to resist heat-induced damage, while it also helps you promote heart health, maintain normal cholesterol levels and even supports weight loss — coconut oil.
