👉🏽FOOD CAN AFFECT YOUR MOOD… THIS FORMS THE BASIS OF ‘COSMETIC NEUROLOGY’

⁣👎🏽CAPSICUM CAN LOWER GLYCINE ACTIVITY:
Ever heard of glycine? The longevity amino acid that can be taken as a supplement…
Glycine is powerful. In fact, one key effect of glycine is a reduction in anxiety via working on the glycinergic system, which is very closely related to the GABAergic system. One compound found in capsicum called Capsaicin, can REDUCE glycine activity in the brain (Thakre et al., 2019).

⚡️CAPSICUM RAISES ADRENALINE:
Adrenaline forms part of our fight or flight response. Capsaicin has been shown to raise adrenaline levels via acting on TRPV-1 receptors (Watanabe et al., 2001).

✅DON’T FORGET THE BENEFITS:
-Antimicrobial properties.
-Antifungal properties.
-Insecticidal, Anthelmintic and Larvicidal Effects
-Antioxidant Properties
-Immunosuppressant activities
-Analgesic and Antiplatelet Effects
(Batiha et al., 2020)
