FOOD FOR THOUGHT™ (Wellness International)
Choline-Enriched Nutritional Drink
Uses: By utilizing scientifically established "smart nutrients," Food For Thought™ is a great-tasting citrus beverage ideal for work, school or anytime peak mental performance is desired.
Choline, a member of the B-complex family, is determined to be one of the few substances that possesses the ability to penetrate the blood-brain barrier--a protectant of the brain from the onslaught of chemicals taken into the body each day--and go directly into the brain cells to produce acetylcholine.
The most abundant neurotransmitter in the body, acetylcholine is the primary neurotransmitter between neurons and muscles. It is vital because of its role in motor behavior (muscular movement) and memory. Acetylcholine helps control muscle tone, learning, and primitive drives and emotions, while also controlling the release of the pituitary hormone vasopressin--which is involved in learning and in the regulation of urine output. Studies show that low levels of acetylcholine can contribute to lack of concentration and forgetfulness, and may interfere with sleep patterns.
Food For Thought further enhances its effectiveness through the utilization of essential vitamins--required for promoting the synthesis of brain neurotransmitters--with a unique blend of minerals. The brain uses vitamins B3 (niacin) and B6 (pyridoxine), to convert the amino acid L-tryptophan into the mood- and sleep-regulating neurotransmitter serotonin, while vitamins B1 (thiamin), B5 (pantothenic acid), B6 (pyridoxine), and C and the minerals zinc and calcium are required for the production of acetylcholine.
