Essential amino acids are the building materials to design thousands of variations of types of food sources of protein. Amino acid variation in egg protein was the same as the protein of meat, corn, or beans.

In addition to adequate protein, the brain takes the two types of fat, namely free fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and decosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Both are found in omega-3 fish oil, such as cod, salmon, mackerel, shellfish, and plankton.
