Brain Performance from Breakfast



The food you eat affects metabolism and is related to your mental performance.  Do a quick analysis of your breakfast.  At Holistic Nutrition Center, we list flavorings, color additives or excess sugar as ‘red flag’ items because they have the potential to alter metabolism, and can have an adverse, neuro-toxic effect in some people.  
Have you ever made the connection between what you eat for breakfast and brain symptoms like anxiety, lack of focus or headaches?  A few signs of food problems that I look for in adults are: feeling starved mid-morning, moodiness, or being unable to concentrate.  In kids, I'll ask about academic performance, willingness to cooperate, or if they quarrel with siblings. 
The reason that certain food additives can cause neurologic symptoms in some people has to do with genetics and nutrition.  Some people inherit genes that make it hard to break down excitatory neurotransmitters like epinephrine and dopamine.  Individuals with these gene combinations already will be more prone to having brain symptoms. What they don't want to do is to make the problem worse by eating foods with these additives. 
If you'd like to see mood and behavior improvements, here's a little trick you can try.   Get rid of the colors, flavors and sugars in your breakfast foods.   Real food that's healthy already has color and flavor and doesn't need chemical enhancement.  Swap your usual breakfast for non-sweet food like eggs.  Your family members may have fewer brain symptoms and feel better.
