DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid that is present in many of our organs, including our brains. DHA supplements are said to be helpful in preventing dementia, something that we 70-somethings worry about. Actually, my much younger colleagues will often have “senior” moments when they can’t recall a name. But they don’t worry about them the way we do.
Although forgetfulness has not been a problem for me so far, I am willing to take some preventative measures. My daughter-in-law Katrina had heard that DHA supplements are helpful. I thought I’d give them a try.
When I made my shopping list a few days later, I couldn’t remember its name. I had to call Katrina on the way to the store.
The irony of “forgetting” the name of the cure for forgetting did not escape me.
I hope to remember to take it.
