Your ability to digest and absorb your nutrients affects your mental clarity.
What are some ways in which the above statement is true?
Vitamin C is absorbed in the small intestine and needed for production of carnitine. You need carnitine to transport fat into your cells. You need this fat for energy production when you are low on glucose. Your neurons cannot function without this energy production.
Vitamin C is needed for tyrosine production. Tyrosine is the amino acid precursor for production of some of your neurotransmitters. These neurotransmitters are targeted when treating anxiety and depression and are behind one of the theories for the cause of ADHD.
Thiamine (Vitamin B1) is absorbed in the small intestine. Thiamin is nerve impulse transmission by regulating sodium channels and acetylcholine receptors.
Niacin (Vitamin B3) is mostly absorbed in the small intestine but can be absorbed in the stomach. Niacin is used for energy production, hormone synthesis, synthesis of DNA, and regeneration of glutathione and Vitamin C. Note that glutathione and vitamin C regeneration are important for cleaning out the cells and allowinf them to function correctly.
