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.
I know people who get into trouble by eating one piece of candy. Just a teeny taste leads to constant food cravings that can’t be satisfied. For the next 3-4 days, the thought of candy is haunting. And there's a strong desire for other foods too so a cycle of overeating starts that can last for weeks, packing on pounds and guilt.
What I’m referring to goes beyond craving. For a lot of people who don’t have a ‘take it or leave it’ relationship with candy, this is a real addiction.
I just came across a supplement that’s described as a memory
solution, developed by a neurologist.
It claims to prevent fuzzy thinking and forgetfulness and protect
against oxidative damage. It also
claims to promote improvement in cognitive function, protect the brain, and to
demonstrate antioxidant activity.
Sounds great, doesn’t it?
