Has hunger ever changed your mood? If the answer is yes, you know that what we eat, or do not eat, directly affects our mental health.

Our belly and brain are physically and biochemically connected in a number of ways. The state of our intestines can alter the way our brain works and behaves. And this gives a completely new meaning to the term “food for thought”.

Ruairi Robertson is a nutritionist, neuroscientists, and a microbiologist. He explores the science behind some of the foods we classify as “brain foods”. He also explains the link between our belly and our brain.

Many people believe that food is the key to global public health, and Ruairi helps shed some light how that can happen.
