Every moment of every day, a complex balancing act is taking place in your body.
Complex metabolic processes break down the foods you eat into component chemicals and elements. Your circulatory system shuttles these raw materials around the body to where they're needed. Your brain consumes about 20% of your body's energy, and is greedy for the nutrients required to synthesize neurochemicals. Learn more about your brain.
When the brain doesn't get the nutrients it needs, cognitive capabilities are diminished. Remember – the brain is the center of all your senses, all your thoughts and memories. Any or all of the brain's functions can be disrupted by inadequate nutrition.
