Everything about food will have a direct effect on your brain. The emotional as well as physical responses.
Many of today’s most common health concerns are directly related to brain chemical (neurotransmitter) imbalances. Your brain on food!
- What you think - brain fog?
- What you feel - depression?
- How you act - stimulated?
- Carbohydrates - fuel your brain
- Proteins - communication for brain function
- Fats - build the brain
Neurotransmitters - Chemicals that transmit signals or chemical messengers. The body uses nutrients in foods to manufacture neurotransmitters. Responsible for our behavior, attitude and energy.
Simplified - What you put in is what you get out. What you eat, the quality of the food and the nutrient density will all have long lasting effects on the brain. Foods can support or inhibit neurotransmitter function.
You have a choice.
What are you eating?
What are the short and long term effects of what you eat?
Food for thought.
