Evidence suggest that nootropics act through a variety of mechanisms, Noose Yoga Pose including improving antioxidant status, membrane fluidity, mitochondrial function, neurotransmitter levels, messenger RNA protein Noose Yoga Pose synthesis, cerebral blood flow, neuroplasticity, and long-term potentiation. Of the many macronutrients and micronutrients that are essential for the structure and function of the nervous system, the omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins are foremost in clinical practice.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids Polyunsaturated fatty acids, including the omega-3 fatty acids FAs alpha-lipoic acid ALA, docosahexanoic acid DHA, eicosapentanoic acid EPA, and arachidonic acid ARA are necessary to maintain membrane fluidity, membrane enzyme activities, and production of molecules involved in inflammatory modulation e.g. DHA is one of the building blocks of cell membranes.
Omega-3 FAs are also involved in gene expression and antioxidant defense against neuronal damage from free radicals. The need for adequate supplies of polyunsaturated fatty acids is most critical during fetal development, infancy, pregnancy, and later adulthood as the brain ages. Research has established the importance of omega-3 FAs, especially DHA in neuronal development Bourre, 2006, 2007; Crawford, 1993.
