The Diet of Common Sense Podcast

Our minds are powerful computers, and yet they say we only use 10% of our brain. The brain uses 20% of the body's energy, and in order to keep it healthy we need to eat more brain superfoods such as omega 3 fatty acids, greeny leaves, avocado, blueberries. Hydration is also important, studies suggests that even mild dehydration can affect our cognitive performance.

Thank you so much for such valuable knowledge. I've spent so much money at the dermatologist. I tried 2 different kinds of pills & two different types of face creams he prescribed. None of it worked. In fact, it worsened my acne. I have tried it all! I have prayed, used Tea Tree oil, Proactive, microdermabrasion, ate more salmon & walnuts, lifted weights, did cardio, slept more, took the hair skin & nail vitamins, & quit all dark sodas. It did nothing. This show has given me a new sense of hope! Thank you so much!

I love that you mention Camu Camu berry again, also heard you talking about it’s vitamin C potential alongside Acerola cherry and Amla berry in a different episode - in my own experience, I’ve used Camu Camu powder to recover from food poisoning and it worked within a half an hour to relieve my digestive upset and nausea symptoms likely because of its positive affect on the micro biome!
