👉🏽THIS BERRY IS KNOWN AS...
🔥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…?
Blackcurrant consumption in the form of juice OR eaten raw may possess psychoactive effects.
