In brief: Brain food

Certain b-vitamins, for example Folic Acid in the form of l-methylfolate are involved in the production of 3 major neurotransmitters including serotonin, Dopamine and norepinephrine.
These chemicals are required to support mood and permit communication between cells in the brain. In some studies, omega3fa's can be effective mood stabilizers when dosed properly.
