Nutrition for the brain

Science shows a direct correlation between body and brain – what we digest can improve, or deteriorate our mental health.

The vagus nerve which controls the parasympathetic nervous system is connected with major organs including the digestive tract and the brain.

Studies show that maintaining healthy gut bacteria has a direct improvement on mental health, due to the improved operations of the vagus nerve in its function for maintaining a stable nervous system.
