More specifically, you want help with Fish is Brain and Eye Food?
so fish is not only good for your brain but it’s also good for your eyes okay why because of DHA now not all fish have high levels of DHA I will explain which ones do but DHEA is an omega-3 fatty acid and it’s used as a primary structural component of the brain and the retina now in the brain it makes up the synapses which is basically the connection between the nerve cells now if you’re low in DHA it can affect many many different things but the two things that really stand out are a lowered cognitive function so your memory your focus your concentration might be inhibited also not having enough can greatly affect your mood as in depression and anytime you see DHA you’re also going to see the other fact called EPA DHA is more for the structural part of the brain and the retina which is an extension of the brain and EPA works more on the function part so what foods have the most DHA now per a hundred grams it’s caviar that has 3,400 milligrams per 100 grams so caviar is number one number two Atlantic mackerel at 1,400 milligrams then we have anchovies 1292 and then Atlantic salmon 1115 milligrams then we have herring which is about 1100 v chinook salmon which is 944 bluefin tuna 890 beef brain right your your favorite at 855 milligrams per 100 gram now if you’re a vegan and you don’t do this you can do microalgae there are cofactors that allow DHEA to work in the brain and in the eye zinc and iodine well guess what it just so happens that you’re going to get Zeke and iodine when you consume seafood now DHA is also needed to make something called rhodopsin rhodopsin is a light-sensitive protein in the eye made me involve with low-level lights so let’s say for example you’re driving at night and it’s hard to see in the dark and it’s hard to adjust you may need DHA or you could also need vitamin A and as a side note you also need zinc to allow vitamin A to work as well as DHA so this is also important anyway thanks for watching and definitely make note of some of these fish so you can start to add more DHA to your diet if you’re liking this content please subscribe now and I will actually keep you updated on future videos

In this video, I want to go over the interesting benefits of fish for your brain and your eyes.
Fish are so beneficial for your brain and your eyes because of DHA. But, not all fish have high levels of DHA.
What is DHA? – DHA is an omega 3 fatty acid. It’s used as a primary structural component of the brain and the retina. If you’re low in DHA, it can affect many things, including your cognitive function and your mood.
Foods rich in DHA (Per 100g):
• Caviar – 3400mg
• Atlantic Mackerel -1400mg
• Anchovies – 1292mg
• Atlantic Salmon -1115mg
• Herring – 1105mg
• Chinook Salmon – 944mg
• Blue Fin Tuna – 890mg
• Beef Brain – 855mg
• Microalgae (for vegans)
There are cofactors that allow DHA to work in the brain and in the eyes which are zinc and iodine. You can get both of these cofactors when you consume seafood.
DHA is also needed to make Rhodopsin. Rhodopsin is a light-sensitive protein in the eye that’s mainly involved with low-level light. If you have a hard time seeing at night, you may need DHA or vitamin A.
