There is a powerful link between the brain and nutritional status. This webinar will examine how diet, mood and cognitive ability are linked and this knowledge can be applied. From the development of the nervous system through to impairment in cognitive capacity in old age, nutrition can play a key role in enhancing and protecting the functions of the central nervous system. Fatigue states, depression      and eating disorders will be considered. Examples of nootropics, natural aphrodisiacs and sleep and relaxation aids will be given.
