Aka junk food "junk"-because it contains no nutritional value other than calories-a type of food that should be avoided if we want to avoid diseases related to heart and blood vessels. However, if it is difficult to avoid the temptation of junk food, maybe you should start routinely taking fish oil supplements.
Analysis conducted at 185 study suggests that fish oil supplements can minimize the effects of junk food on the brain. A team of researchers from the University of Liverpool analyzed studies conducted around the world to determine evidence of benefit supplement omega-3 fatty acids. The research team also examined if these supplements are beneficial for weight loss.
A recent study published in the British Journal of Nutrition indicates that fatty junk food diet can hinder the process called neurogenesis or the formation of new nerve cells. While a diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids may prevent the negative effects by stimulating areas of the brain that controls eating, learning, and memory.
Although the team found that fish oil does not have a direct effect on this process in the area of the brain, fish oil has an important role in reducing the ability of carbohydrates or sugars and saturated fats to inhibit brain controls the desire to eat.
It is also likely to lead to useful fish oil for weight control. Chairman Dr. Lucy Pickavance study from the University's Institute of Ageing and Chronic Disease said, weight is influenced by many factors. One of the most important factors that influence it are nutrients that we consume.
"Excessive intake of certain macronutrients, such as sugars and saturated fats found in junk food, can lead to weight gain, interfere with metabolism, even affect cognitive abilities," said Pickavance.
This change, he added, can be seen from the structure of the brain, including the ability to make the process of formation of new nerve cells. Therefore, in other words, obesity is associated with neurological diseases of aging.
"Fish oil is not a direct effect on weight loss, but it can stop the effects of the aging process in the brain that is triggered by a high-fat diet," said Pickavance.
