Exercise and brainpower

The human brain is the most complex object in the universe. Each one of us carries within our skulls a three-pound lump of fats and proteins with the consistency of jelly that we call a brain. Your brain contains 100 billion neurons that link to one another in a pattern more complex and unique than your fingerprint. The vast and incredible power of the human brain is only beginning to be understood by scientists and neurologists.

  1. I was going to mention something about Omega 3 fish oil from your previous fitness tip. I read that krill oil is better as a form of omega because astaxanthin is a natural component of the product which acts as a preservative to this oil. Long ago I remember the Omega3 oil always said to refrigerate but I have not noticed it lately. Another thing I recently read was Flax seed Omega 3 is a 14 carbon oil as opposed to fish witch is an 18 carbon oil and for the brain we want the 14 carbon chain. The rest of the body wants the 18 carbon as well. It keeps getting more complicated as time goes on.
