⁣⁣
🔥WHAT IS DOPAMINE?⁣⁣
-A brain chemical (Neurotransmitter). ⁣⁣
-Think of it as your as ANTI-Laziness chemical.⁣⁣
-The chemical that is FLOODING your brain, just before the “best bit of your favourite song”⁣⁣
-Think of it as what motivates you to reach a goal (Jones et al., 2017).⁣⁣
⁣⁣
👁IMPORTANCE OF DOPAMINE:⁣⁣
The typical person with low dopamine lacks the drive/motivation to reach an intended goal. Whether that be a fitness goal, a financial goal, relationships etc. This low dopamine is accompanied by apathy and poor willpower/resilience. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
📚HOW BLACKCURRANTS HELP:⁣⁣
Phenols in blackcurrants increase the dopamine concentration in the brain via a well known mechanism of action. Blackcurrants were found to inhibit the enzyme MAO-B. MAO-B breaks down mostly dopamine. Inhibition of MAO-B may increase the dopamine concentration in the brain (Lomiwes et al., 2019). Guess what else INHIBITS MAO-B…?⁣⁣
⁣⁣
💥TAKEAWAY:⁣⁣
Blackcurrant consumption in the form of juice OR eaten raw may possess psychoactive effects. ⁣
