Eating fish baked or grilled once a week is good for the brain, regardless of the amount of Omega-3 fatty acids it contains.

These results of a study published in the journal American Journal of Preventive Medicine , support the idea that lifestyle factors contribute to brain health in the future.

The antioxidant effect of omega-3 fatty acids, found in fish, seeds and nuts, is also associated with better health, especially on the brain.

“Our study has shown that people who eat fish baked or grilled, not fried but have larger brain volumes in regions associated with memory (4.3%) and cognition (14%). However, we have not found this to be a relationship with the levels of Omega-3 fatty acids consumed.” explained lead researcher James T. Becker.

In addition, experts have found that those who ate grilled or baked fish regularly, compared with those who did not, were more likely to have better health.
