BRAIN POWER…. Are your brain lights ON, Dimmed or OFF?

We all know it, your brain controls everything! The brain controls your body, your organs, your actions, your decision making, your life. Yes, it does! Of course, you want it to function at its best, but what we don’t know is some common things or food you are eating can be hurting your central processor.

You are what you eat. Not quite feeling yourself these days? Look directly at your diet. Do any of these symptoms sound a little too familiar?

Weight Gain
Low Libido
Trouble Focusing
Stomach Aches
Food Cravings
Mood Swings

These symptoms could very well be  caused by a diet that is not helping the brain to produce the proper neurotransmitters and not in the right balance either.  But what do neurotransmitters do you ask? Simply put, they signal your brain and the rest of your body to work. They signal your heart to beat, the digestion to function, and the brain to react a certain way. They also signal our moods being up or crashing down. They help you feel physically and emotionally well when there is a balance between the calming, focusing, happy and stimulant neurotransmitters.

Want to pinpoint which neurotransmitters are at optimal levels for you? Or which ones may be too low?  Take a look at our neurotransmitter test. It is easy to do and includes an easy to understand test result and protocol.
