How can what you eat effect your moods, anxiety, depression and other emotions? Because there are certain nutrients that are required to produce neurotransmitters and hormones; to remove toxic cellular waste and balance the blood sugar. All of these functions effect your mental clarity and stability.
Fat is one of the most important nutrients for healthy brain function. Most people in our culture are fat starved: they are severely lacking the right kind of fat in their diet. Fat acts as a vehicle which transports vital nutrients across the cellular membrane. Fat also delivers toxins out of the cells and eliminates them from the body through the lymphatic system.
One of the most important things we can do to increase our mental clarity and mood stability is to make food choices that will naturally balance our blood sugar and our hormones.
The brain is a powerful organ and it has the capability of producing chemicals that allow us to feel euphoric and ecstatic... Unfortunately, these chemicals cannot be manufactured if the body is deficient in nutrients and essential fatty acids.
