Description Better brain health | DW Documentary

Chocolate reduces stress. Fish stimulates the brain. Is there any truth to such popular beliefs? The findings of researchers around the world say yes: It appears we really are what we eat.

A study in a British prison found that inmates who took vitamin supplements were less prone to violent behavior. And in Germany, a psychologist at the University of Lübeck has shown that social behavior is influenced by the ingredients consumed at breakfast. But what really happens in the brain when we opt for honey instead of jam, and fish rather than sausage? Scientists around the world are trying to find out. Neuro-nutrition is the name of an interdisciplinary research field that investigates the impact of nutrition on brain health. Experiments on rats and flies offer new insight into the effects of our eating habits. When laboratory rats are fed a diet of junk food, the result is not just obesity. The menu also has a direct influence on their memory performance. The role of the intestinal flora has been known for some time, but scientists are currently discovering other relationships. So-called "brain food" for example: The Mediterranean diet that’s based on vegetables and fish is said to provide the best nutrition for small grey cells. Omega-3 fatty acids, which are found in fish, for example, protect the nerve cells and are indispensable for the development of the brain - because the brain is also what it eats!

So if we reduce fat and sugar (sucrose, glucose, fructose) then that just leaves us with protein as a source of food.. which is linked to heart complications as well or through gluconeogenesis turned into "sugar" as well.. so that leaves me with water.. and salads lol

Fun fact, the images of the food in the streets is Buenos Aires, but they change all the street names, put some ads of deliveroo (service which doesn't exist in Argentina) and translated/changed the names of many things (the 41 bus is not going to the airport).

How do we compare animal behavior to humans? This was a good documentary but the variables used kinda threw my thought process off. I'm not a fly or a rat so how does that help me a human??

merry cris villanueva
this documentary is very useful and helpful and even before watching this i already understand the concept of too much intake of sweets and bad fats could lead me to a very unhealthy life which could perhaps shorten my life. so i have been avoiding eating too much sweets and junk foods, although i bake cake but not often and as much as possible i tried to lessen the sugar added, although im not sweet tooth addict. i balanced my diet well and try to incorporate my variety of foods.
thanks for this docu, it gave more additional insights of how do brain works and functions with the effect of food we chose from.

Maria Faustina Moscol Cutin
Interesting documentary! 🤩🧠
Comment from : Maria Faustina Moscol Cutin

several important ideas to take away from this great documentary.
Fast food, causes you to loose your memory, it affect your sensitiveness to be more irritated or anger, sugar causes addiction, and when you eat it frequently., the consumer tends to loose the feeling of satisfation and behaves your brain the same way as drug users. overall eating healthy its vital to keep yourself in good shape and have great performance.
so intersting about the omega 3 contribution to our brain functioning and also the calcium.
awesome documentary Dw danke schone

Comment from : Uche Uwah

Dunya J
Short brief for you!

Mentioned human behaviour depends on nutrition. Such as:
Human after high protein breakfast has more tolerance to accept the unfair offer
Human who had less protein breakfast has less tolerance to accept the unfair offer

Result of feeding with sugar and cocoin and comparing the addictiveness of brain to drugs or sugar, brain is more attracted to sugar.

Junkie foods makes human double eat and by eating junky food often brain memory loses.

Comment from : Dunya J

Extremely informative documentary! I enjoyed the various research this video highlighted and the multitude of ways food effects our brain. One question, We all understand the health benefits of the Mediterranean diet because it’s been the topic of research for a while, are there any other ethnic diets that also support these benefits?

Anonymous Jastyce
This study is essential but I want to add that there is something more relevant than eating Healthy Foods, and that is SLEEPING 8 hours a day I've watched a documentary that Sleeping regularly 8hours a day is the most impactful in our brain, health or overall lifestly. Now, if we combine best Sleep and nutritious food. I think that's the culmination of a better life.

Omer Faruk
It was such an informative documentary, yet I have some concerns, particularly about the experiment takes place at 19:30. Couldn't the extraordinary behaviour of the rat be because of the smell of the hand on the cup, rather than rat's diet & brain? I don't know...

With your exploration of self-discovery its possible that you have a few extra tools to become an amazing counselor.
Maybe consider a psychology class and pray about it~

Parshva Nayak
We Indians are always been taught of this things in our Sanskrit Ved. We've been also taught that bit only the food but the thoughts wile preparing it and eating it also affects the nutritional values of that food. The best example for this the shlok written below👇🏼 which urges all the positive energies to reside in us via our food.
ॐ सह नाववतु ।
सह नौ भुनक्तु ।
सह वीर्यं करवावहै ।
तेजस्वि नावधीतमस्तु मा विद्विषावहै ।
ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ॥

But the only thing is we treat that knowledge of Sanskrit just as a subject to pass and that too with no interest. And this is because for us these shloks and mantras are bull-shit until we get its value certificate from the western countries. And then we claim, why those things aren't being taught to us. But the fact is they are learning form us and we are trying to avoid that Sanskrit subject to exchange with PE or Computer Science
