Source-Omega's Founder reports North Carolina’s brain health is at risk, according to the life'sDHA Index of Brain Health. The first-of-its-kind index evaluated the 50 states and the District of Columbia based on 21 brain health indicators in the areas of diet, physical health, mental health and social well-being. Source-Omega produces a patent pending life'sDHA supplement product.
Chapel Hill, NC, January 27, 2010 --(PR.com)-- North Carolina is 32nd out of 50 states, scoring a failing grade. But it could be worse as the state is ranked in the top 10 for religious/spiritual health, considered an important factor in combating end of life morbidity. Source-Omega's product Pure One(TM) DHA+EPA is listed on the life'sDHA(TM) website [http://www.lifesDHA.com].
Brain health may depend on where you live. If you live in the New England states or the District of Columbia, you could consider yourself among the healthiest brains in America, from the state-by-state measure of the nation's brain health. Pure One is available in all states with online access to product information that can help serve the needs of consumers and doctors across the country.
The Index indicates that healthier brains may result from making smarter nutritional choices, by being less overweight, by avoiding smoking, by actively playing brain games, by reading more, by being more social and by consuming higher amounts of DHA omega-3, the good fat for maintaining your brain health throughout life, which research has shown may additionally help protect against dementia later in life.
DHA omega-3 is the hardest omega-3 fat to get in the diet, yet DHA-fortified foods, DHA algae oil supplements and certain fish, including salmon and trout have this good fat. If you don't eat fish, you can find DHA in fortified foods, beverages and supplements that have a pure algae-based source - algae is the original source for how fish get their DHA in the first place.
“DHA omega-3 is the only good fat known to promote and sustain brain health throughout life," says Scott Doughman, Ph.D. Lipidologist "Since the diet alone is not enough and the right fish are polluted and overfished, DHA algae oil supplements are considered the best and most sustainable way for women in particular to get their minimum recommended 300 mg DHA daily.”
DHA is the only omega-3 shown to provide brain, eye and heart health benefits. The World Health Organization recommends a minimum intake of 220 mg of DHA per day for healthy adults, but research shows that the average U.S. consumer takes in less than 100 mg of DHA per day, suggesting widespread deficiencies.
