First and foremost, beware of the gluten. It is a protein found in wheat, barley, rye, kumut and spelt. Its sticky texture makes it stick really good to the intestinal walls, causing disorders in the digestive system and the overall immune system, such as a celiac disease.

In addition to this, there is a non celiac disease too, where you are also sensitive to gluten, but this is a key factor to most of the inflammatory disorders of the brain and the nervous system.

It has been proven scientifically that there is a strong link between being sensitive to gluten and having a disorder which affects the brain, the spinal cord and the peripheral nerves.

This is an ingredient which has often been linked to dementia, cognitive impairment, some psychiatric disorders and much more.

Are you familiar with the names sucralose, aspartame and saccharin? They are all types of artificial sweeteners, and are all popular because the marketing for them shows they contain zero calories.

But what is hidden from you is that these are highly toxic ingreidents, which deteriorate the brain. For an example, the aspartame is a combination of several toxic compounds, such as aspartic acid, methanol and phenylalanine, and when it breaks down in the body it produces tumor in the brain.

The consumption of this particular compound causes several severe symptoms, such as a migraine, depression, slurred speech, anxiety attacks and more. This compound is found in chewing gums, flavored water, sodas, yogurt, cereal, tabletop sweeteners and so on.

The MSG, or monosodium glutamate is a concentrated form of the salt which is added to foods in order to enhance their flavor. It tricks the brain into thinking the food is delicious, when it’s actually not.

In the same time, it makes the brain produce excess amounts of dopamine, which is the feel good drug in the body. This ingredient is associated with damage to the brain as well as other neurological diseases, such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, lupus and so on.

This compound is most frequently found in barbecue sause, salad dressings, canned soups and vegetables, processed foods and bouillon cubes.

The refined sugar, even though is the most popular, is also the most dangerous ingredient you can find in the food you consume. The regular intake of this compound is associated with having negative effects on the brain.

The problem that it suppresses the growth of hormones which are of utmost importance for the brain. It has even been scientifically proven that people who suffer from low brain growth hormone are prone to suffering from depression, schizophrenia, and those who already do suffer can make things even more difficult for them.

The refined sugar can furthermore increase inflammation and disrupt the work of the digestive system. So, both of the depressed peple and those who want to improve their health should take this compound off of their list.

Finally, one of the most dangerous decisions made which affects our brains it adding fluoride into the water we drink. The fluoride is reported to be associated with a low IQ.
