Literally we must have proper nutritional intake for adequate function of our neurotransmitters, which are messengers that bring brain signals from one neuron to the next one. Your brain structure might be good, but if your neurotransmitters are insufficient, your brain won’t work right. So, it is important to feed those neurotransmitters what they need to maintain adequate performance and longevity of healthy cells!
