Your Brain Is Crying Out: "Say YES To NO"!

As this new academic year approaches, begin your studies successfully by providing your brain with the proper dietary nutrition needed to enhance concentration, thinking ability, and recall.

A very small molecule, nitric oxide (NO), is produced in the body from the amino acids arginine and citrulline and also from the bioflavonoid antioxidants known as anthocyanins and catechins. Both categories are provided in ample amounts in many of the types of foods emphasized in my factsheets "The Maximum Mental Health Diet". WyzAnt clients receive a complimentary copy of this information at the first or subsequent tutoring sessions. I follow these recommendations, myself, and have observed positive results daily for years.

Nitric oxide dilates blood vessels and arteries, thereby enhancing blood flow to both the heart and the brain. When the proper nutrients (including the right fatty acids and antioxidants) are delivered more easily to the brain, it IS going to function more efficiently.

Now, wouldn't you like to start out with a well-tuned up brain as you strive to boost your academic performance this school year?


Hey Bruce! As a student, teacher, and general chemistry enthusiast, I'm always trying new things with foods, etc. to boost mental health, energy and the like! Your students are lucky to have tips from such a well-studied tutor. Great blog post! I'll have to look into NO a little more closely :)
