Today, I will be talking about a toxin that you need to avoid for a healthy brain function.
It is high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) prevalent in most processed foods.
This toxin is associated with a lot of health problems like:
High Triglycerides in your blood
Even worst, high-fructose corn syrup may contain mercury, which is an absolute toxin for your brain.
Here is a helpful link about the toxic effects of mercury:
What Can You Do?
*You have to clean your diet of processed foods, especially with high-fructose corn syrup. Avoiding mercury and high-fructose corn syrup is crucial for children with learning disabilities.
*Add several servings of fruits, vegetables, nuts, and green smoothies to start cleaning up your system.
*Start walking or jogging twenty to thirty minutes five times per week to open up your detoxification pathways.
In Health and Faith,
P.S. By the way, if you want to know more about a healthy diet for brain function, you can get my book, Resilient Brain. It is about my son's journey with severe autism and how nutrition dramatically improved his behavior, performance in school, and his ability to play multiple sports.
Nutrition has been a game-changer for my family, and can do the same for yours.
