Super foods for the brain.


Dopamine is an important neurotransmitter that is essential for optimum brain function. Dopamine helps the brain generate sufficient energy to run the body. It stimulates the heart, regulates the flow of information through our brains, controls movement, and allows humans to experience feelings of passion and pleasure.  Dopamine production is boosted by the consumption of certain foods, especially those containing the amino acid tyrosine. Eating these special foods adds to our ability to respond optimally to our lives both physically and emotionally.


Proteins are high in amino acids, which are necessary for dopamine production, and they Include foods such as fish, eggs, chicken, turkey and red meat to supply your body with adequate amino acids. Soy products and other legumes are considered incomplete proteins; however, form complete proteins when eaten in combination with grains, becoming excellent sources for dopamine-related amino acids.


Certain vegetables in particular are excellent sources of amino acids that stimulate dopamine production. Artichokes and avocados have also been found to increase dopamine levels.
