We hear it all the time: You are what you eat. Nowadays, we are getting bombarded with articles about ingredients that improve brain health.

For example, one of them is that chocolate reduces stress. And that eating fish stimulates the brain. But are they true? Is there any truth in popular beliefs?

This documentary takes a look at findings and different studies from around the world that focus on food that improves the brain.

For example, you will hear about a study in British prison that found out that some inmates that took vitamin supplements were less prone to violent behavior. Or a study in Germany by a psychologist proving that social behavior is influenced by the ingredients in our breakfast.
