Healthy Fats for Healthy Brain Cells

Of all the organs in your body, your brain especially needs healthy dietary fat.

It’s largely made of fat, 60% by volume. Your brain cell membrane integrity largely depends on the quality of the fats you eat. You may have heard that coconut oil can increase your cholesterol. And that’s a good thing for your brain!

Your brain specifically needs cholesterol.

The brain has higher cholesterol content than any other organ with about 25% of the body’s cholesterol found in the brain. 

Low cholesterol increases the risk of suicide, depression, and dementia. 

The risk of dementia is reduced by 70% in those with high cholesterol!
