Boost your brain bower

Let’s face it, we could all do with a brain boost every now and then. Luckily, mushrooms are the ultimate brain food. Packed with B vitamins, copper and potassium, they can help the brain, neurological and nervous system function properly. Here’s how:

- Pantothenic acid (a B vitamin): aids mental performance and helps the body produce neurotransmitters - the signals our brains send.

- B vitamins (biotin, niacin and thiamine): help our brains process information and manage behaviour.

- Copper: necessary for normal neurological function (the way the brain and nerves work).

- Potassium: helps the nervous system function.
