About the benefits of DHA
DHA is one of the polyunsaturated fatty acids. DHA, which is mainly found in blue fish, is originally contained in human brain cells as fat. In particular, it is found in the hippocampus, a part of the brain that is responsible for memory and learning and is also affected by Alzheimer’s disease. It is also abundant in the heart, uterus, and eyes, and plays an important role in each of these activities.
However, DHA tends to become insufficient with age, affecting memory loss, eye diseases, and hormonal imbalance.
By taking DHA in your diet on a regular basis, you can revitalize your brain and prevent heart disease, vision loss, and uterine diseases.
For those who find it difficult to consume DHA every day, supplements are recommended.
Now that we know that turmeric and DHA are effective in preventing diseases and illnesses, it is difficult to include them in your daily diet since they are both contained in unique foods.
