Your Brain Is Fat… And That’s Good!
Weight has a profound impact on brain function, as renowned functional medicine expert Mark Hyman emphasizes, "Your brain is 60 percent fat, and it needs fat to work properly." Maintaining a healthy weight not only contributes to overall well-being but also optimizes cognitive abilities.
According to cardiologist and scientific partner of SYMMETRIA®, Dr. Angelos Tsipis, “It's no surprise that even though the brain is the organ with the highest fat content and dietary fat plays an important role in its health. Omega-3 fatty acids are essential for the function of every brain cell. Recent research has shown a link between high levels of omega-3 in the blood and better brain function in children. We also know that obesity increases not only the risk of cardiovascular disease, but also neurological diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and dementia. Losing excess weight with a balanced diet and regular exercise can significantly help brain health as memory and attention improve.
SYMMETRIA® also recommend the PRO-GI Diet®, a combination of a low glycemic index diet and adequate protein intake – a diet which is applied by all SYMMETRIA® partners, as well as tailormade IV drips to help regulate levels of stress and sleep deprivation.
