Brain food

PsychoNutrition deals with nutrition and its effect on the mind. Natural chemicals, such as vitamins, minerals and amino acids effect the brain's chemistry. When the brain's chemistry changes, it can effect mood swings, the ability to learn, stress levels and other activities.

Mental illness can be helped by addressing certain nutrients that are deficient in their diet or unusually high. It is very important to bring balance into the body by regulating vitamins, minerals and natural sugars found in food.
