Free Sponsored Presentation: Seafood Consumption and Brain Health: What Research Suggests and Seafood Leaders Need to Know
Research suggests consumption of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) including the omega-3’s found in Farmed Salmon can improve brain health. Recent studies have shown that diet can have a profound impact on mental health conditions ranging from ADHD to depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, OCD, dementia and beyond. Seafood leaders benefit from a deeper understanding of research findings behind the health benefits associated with seafood consumption and with a diet calibrated for optimal mental health.
