Heart-Brain-Axis and Mental Fitness

I’ve written a lot about the fascinating relationship between our heart (3rd brain) and how we feel and perform mentally (typically thought of as exclusively “head brain” issues).

Our group has shown how specific nutrients can improve both heart health (physical performance), brain health (cognitive performance), and mental health (psychological performance) – you can read some of the details here and here.

The HeartMath Institute has a very nice video here that illustrates the link between our heart brain and our head brain across the Heart-Brain-Axis.
