Membrane Fluidity is linked to Omega 3 Fatty Acid supply.
Cell Membrane Fluidity
Omega 3 fatty acids(DHA, EPA, ALA) are essential components of the neuronal cell wall. DHA is found in increased levels on neurons where it provides powerful structural support.
Sufficient omega 3 intake allows neurons to function efficiently in 2 distinct ways. These are:
supporting chemical transport
Omega 3 fatty acids’ ability to alter neuronal fluidity helps in improving moods amongst depressed patients as well as help in the cognitive development of infants and fetus on lactating and pregnant women and in mild cognitive impairment.
