Today, we’re going to talk about the effect of sugar on the brain.

Sugar causes a temporary spike in dopamine, which affects your mood and behavior—making you feel happy. However, the receptors for dopamine can eventually start downgrading. This means that it will take more and more sugar to create the same effect.

Concentration and focus require a good amount of cognitive power. Sugar alters the inhibitory parts of the brain—causing you to have less control over your brain and making it difficult to concentrate. Sugar also atrophies and ages the brain over time and reduces blood flow to the brain.

Medications like Ritalin are sometimes used to treat conditions like ADHD, where people may have a problem with focus and concentration. However, medications come with side effects.

The Sugar Association says that sugar is fine in moderation. They also say that carbs are the #1 source of energy in the body. But, we know that you can also run your body on ketones.

Another thing they say is that your brain needs sugar. While certain parts of your brain do need sugar, this can come from the sugar your body makes naturally—you don’t need to consume sugar.

What you can do to support focus and concentration:
1. Stop consuming sugar and try alternative sugars
2. Take natural vitamin B1 or nutritional yeast
3. Start fasting (18 hours a day with a six-hour eating window)
