Parenting Pathway #141: Salmon Makes Smart

It’s true! A diet high in dimethylaminoethanol (DMAE), a naturally occurring nutritional compound found especially in wild salmon (as well as in sardines and anchovies), can help your children think more clearly, improve their memory, and increase their problem-solving ability. Studies have also shown that DMAE stabilizes cell membranes, protecting them from free radical damage according to Nicholas Perricone, M.D., author of The Perricone Prescription

Wild salmon is also rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Increasing your dietary intake of these critical fats will help protect you and your children against a multitude of diseases including stroke, heart attack, and some forms of cancers to name a few. Omega-3 fatty acids help the body adequately build ideal cell membranes that optimize cellular health, therefore protecting you against so many health problems.

Furthermore, studies have found that because over 60 percent of the brain is fat, omega-3 fatty acids promote the brain’s ability to regulate mood-related signals; therefore relieving a host of mental health issues including attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and dementia. These amazing fatty acids are crucial for normal nervous system, attention, and memory functions.

Coaching Questions: Could your children’s attention and memory functions use a boost? How often do you serve yourself and your children meals that include DMAE and Omega-3 fatty acids? How can you introduce wild salmon and other DMAE and Omega-3 rich foods into your children’s diet?
