Did you know our brain is more than 60% structural fat which needs to be primarily omega-3 fats, found in walnuts and flaxseed and cod liver oil, for its cell membranes to function properly. Cell membranes, primarily composed of fats, are the gatekeepers of the cell. Omega-3 fats, flexible and fluid by nature, make it easy for nutrients to pass thru the outer membrane of the cell and also helps remove waste efficiently. Definitely worth the investment of a high quality oil when the cell belongs to your brain!
