Brain FoodHere’s a No Brainer, short and sweet… Your Brain needs a constant amount of glucose (a form of energy derived primarily from the carbohydrates consumed) in order to function properly. When glucose (blood sugar) levels are low, you may begin to feel faint and dizzy, shaky and or irritable because your brain cells aren’t getting enough blood sugar, or energy. Your brain also needs carbohydrates, along with an amino acid (protein) called tryptophan to produce serotonin, a brain neurotransmitter that assists in you feeling less stress, less pain, and signals your body that you’re full.
