Reasonable actions promote the brain and mental health of teenagers

When children and teenagers are growing their brain almost always suffer from starvation, i.e. they don’t get enough omega3 fatty acids that are needed for brain development and growth.

The situation is worst for the ones who prefer junk and fast food diet.

One of the factors responsible for their changing moods is sugar and fast carbohydrates that, together with low-quality sleep and the junk entertainment, can destroy brain biochemistry and hence mental health.

The severity and significance of these issues is not commonly recognized, or prevented by healthy nutrition and lifestyle even in the so called civilized families.

In the interest of young people, parents should guide and promote healthy and sensible ways of life for the whole family, so that the children could also take them as part of their lives.
