Researchers at the Montreal Diabetes Centre recently concluded a study of the effects of high fat foods / low fat foods on brain chemistry.  In a nutshell their findings say: Bad food causes changes in brain chemicals. Primarily it raises the levels of  a neurotransmitter called Dopamine. Dopamine enables the brain to rewards us with good feelings, thereby encouraging us to learn and remember certain kinds of behavior based on the good feelings we have  regardless of the NEGATIVE source of pleasure.


Head researcher Dr. Stephanie Fulton had this to say:

“By working with mice, whose brains are in many ways comparable to our own, we discovered that the neurochemistry of the animals who had been fed a high fat, sugary diet were different from those who had been fed a healthy diet,” Fulton explained. “The chemicals changed by the diet are associated with depression. A change of diet then causes withdrawal symptoms and a greater sensitivity to stressful situations, launching a vicious cycle of  more poor eating.”

Researchers also found that mice that had been fed the higher-fat diet exhibited signs of being anxious, such as an avoidance of open areas. Moreover, their brains have been physically altered by their experiences. Now that right there is a sobering thought! THEIR BRAINS HAVE BEEN PHYSICALLY ALTERED! WOW!

Fulton went on to say “It’s interesting that these changes occur before obesity. These findings challenge our understanding of the relationship between diet, the body and the mind. It is food for thought about how we might support people psychologically as they strive to adopt healthy eating habits, regardless of their current corpulence.”

How many people do you know that live a life of fast food/junk food who also appear to be depressed and anxious most of the time. They don’t even need to appear to be obese, as the study shows these symptoms show up before obesity occurs.

The world needs to know that there is a safe, all natural, effective solution to increasing the Dopamine levels in the brain. Once those are corrected it is much easier to kick the junk food habit without all of the withdrawl symptoms. And that is with nutrient therapy as provided by the unique formulation you will find in Q96.

Tell me what you think. And please do me a favor and share this with your friends and family too.
