It's the old folk wisdom - fish really is good for the brain! Our best source is oily fish (salmon, trout, sardines etc) but they actually come from the algae that fish eat, so vegetarians can get them from omega-3 supplements produced from these algae. Soya, hemp, flax and pumpkin seeds and oils, walnuts and leafy green vegetables also contain omega-3 fatty acids, but they are the shorter-chain ones. In theory, our bodies can convert these into EPA and DHA but this process is not very efficient.
