Do you find yourself forgetting something important sometimes? You might need a boost of brain foods.

Thinking is a biochemical process. So the food we eat does not only affect our weight and well-being, it also has something to do with our emotional and mental health. Eating the right food will sharpen our memory, improve our mood, keep us emotionally stable and keep your mind young.

For our brain cells to communicate effectively, they need a messenger that will carry the message from neuron to neuron. That messenger is called neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters are made from amino acid found in protein food that we eat. Vitamins and minerals are needed to convert the amino acids to powerful neurotransmitters.

So if you need a memory upgrade, eat food rich in protein, fat, carbohydrates and vitamins and minerals.

I wonder why I just don’t feel lacking in energy, sleepy and dizzy when I am hungry. I am also forgetful.

And I’m leaving you this excellent quote:
"One cannot think well, love well or sleep well if one has not dined well."
