Food feeds our body but they also feed our brain. Several of the most important amino acids (foods that have been broken down so our body can digest them) have to come from supplementation. Amino acids such as Tryptophan cannot be made in the body and we must get this essential amino acid from the foods we eat. Tryptophan breaks down to a chemical in our brain called Serotonin (a very important chemical referred to as a neurotransmitter in the brain) that keeps our thoughts from getting stuck. This important chemical is our gear shifter to shifting thoughts so we don't get stuck in emotions of negativity and feelings of being overwhelmed.
If you think of your tire caught in the mud, the more you push on the gas peddle, the faster the tire spins and then there is no getting out of the mud puddle it's created. If our mind is deficient in this essential amino acid, think about how it impacts your thoughts... Do you feel negative? Do you worry all the time? Is your gear shifter not shifting the ugly thought you have in your head? Well it could be because you lack this important nutrient and it can impact ones ability to shift that thought.
