The weight of the human brain is 2% of the overall body weight, but despite this, it accounts for 20% of the energy and uses up 20% of the oxygen intake.
The brain needs many nutrients to work correctly, from vitamins to minerals, from anti-oxidants to glucose and fatty acids (LA and ALA).
The lack of iodine can lead to a reduced thyroid activity (hypothyroidism) and a consequent change in the metabolism of glucose in the brain and reduced blood flow. This can lead to attention deficit, slower reflexes, memory loss and changes in visual and spatial awareness. Tannins and fucoidans too are found in the AlgeaFood compounds and can be linked to memory and improved brain functioning.
