Professor Melanie Plourde, a full professor at the Université de Sherbrooke, Québec, Canada, found a disconnect in the important role of omega-3 for the brain. So she dived deep into this, filling in the gaps with her research program around two themes: (1) to understand how omega-3s are transferred from the blood to the brain, (2) to maximize omega-3s transport to the brain. In this episode, she joins Corinna Bellizzi to take us to the emerging research world of omega-3 as it relates to brain health. Professor Melanie investigates further by sharing how much of the foods we consume, and the nutrition we get from omega-3 can impact later expressions of health challenges. She then shares how we can supplement it to our diet and offers us a look into her recent research on how lipids traveling in the blood are transported to our brain.

Key takeaways from this episode:

- How omega-3s affect brain health

- How nutrition impacts later expressions of health issues

- The different genome types in relation to diseases

- How people can augment their diet on a daily basis
