One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well. -Virginia Woolf

Although nutrients aren't the only factors necessary for a thriving neural network, they're a very important component. As we push it to work harder through our various services, your brain's need for some nutritional boost will increase.
But the brain isn't the only focus for our attention. Did you know that the gut plays a crucial role in the production of your neurotransmitters? For example, about 90% of our serotonin is produced in the gut; more than 60% of our immune cells originates in the digestive system.
In addition, the gut has its own nervous system – the enteric nervous system – deemed our second brain. It is estimated to have about half as many neurons as the brain, maybe more than the entire spinal cord.
So, we work with physicians with specialty training in nutrition to help you understand how your physiological, psychological, situational needs reflect on your nutritional needs.

Did you know that too much calcium can lead to arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries due to calcium plaque). Too much vitamin A can cause blurred vision, dizziness, nausea, birth defects and headaches... And, although there isn't an UL set for vitamin K, excess intake can cause liver damage.
Of course, all minerals, including copper, fluoride, iodine, iron, manganese and zinc, are toxic in large amounts... Are you sure that the supplements you're taking are really providing you with what you need?

These two images compare the brain image of a well nourished baby on the left and a malnourished baby's brain on the right. Notice that the malnourished baby doesn't have as many neurons and the ones it does have are not well developed with healthy, long dendrites (receptor arms) that enable quick and efficient flow of information from one neuron to another. The human brain continues to develop neurons into old age, when it is in fit condition. When those conditions don't exist, it degenerates: We call this, aging.
