GOOD for brains

We noticed a story in the Independent on Sunday about parents stocking up on ‘Brain Foods’ for their children during exam time. Sales of nuts and seeds particularly, have increased as Mums & Dads top up their youngsters diets with essential fatty acids (EFA’s).

While the article debated if a short burst of Omega’s would actually boost exam results, what was clear was the importance of these essential fats which we can only get through food – “60% of your brain is made up of essential fats which the body cannot make”. The article finished (and we completely agree) by saying that adults and children should be getting a balanced, Omega-rich diet year round, not just for a brain boost!

At GOOD, we’ve been eulogising the value of Omega’s for some time and without blowing our own trumpet (oh OK, maybe just a little bit), the ratio of Omega’s in GOOD OIL matches the body, so using GOOD OIL every day is an easy way to metabolise some of these lovely, and very useful, EFA’s.
