"Balanced nutrition": enhances brain, body and emotional health. Omega-3 fatty acids, magnesium, tryptophan, folate (folic acid) and other B vitamins, low glycemic foods, and chocolate tout benefit. Fruits, starchy vegetables, whole grains, balance blood sugar. Carb and protein combo enhances serotonin helping mood, sleep, other functions. Healthy living habits combine with nutrition for overall health. Best regards for health!
