The Brain is an essential organ that needs to be nourished just like every other body system and supplementing with nutrients allows the brain to function at healthy levels increasing the health of everything else.  Dr. Daniel Amen uses the above formula to unleash the power of the female brain, but he says women need to protect their brain due the fact that it is much more active. Cases of depression and anxiety are much higher in women because their higher brain activity leaves them vulnerable.
