Marmite May Be Brain Food …… Study Says!

I always knew there was something special in it ………..
marmite 3It seems that after experiments, it was found that volunteers (no one asked us) who ate a daily spoonful of the Marmite, our savoury spread of choice, appeared to have higher levels of a vital neuron chemical associated with a healthy brain.  Now I like Marmite, but I do hope they didn’t make the volunteers literally eat a spoonful of it in one go, that would even make me gag in a most undignified manner.  I am assuming it was given to them either spread on toast or a Ryvita  or added, perhaps like I do in gravy or spag bol.
marmite 2It’s something to do with the high levels of vitamin B12 in the Marmite, but it’s all a bit complicated for the likes of me, however, I expect Mr D, our regular font of all knowledge will undoubtedly be cognisant with the machinations of neurotransmitters and gamma-amino-butyric acid. I just know it’s nom nom nom and there’s not a lot wrong with any of our brains, it’s also probably the reason why Nigel muses and ponders as much as he does ………bless him!

I am with you on the "nom, nom, nom approach to Marmite." I love it on bread and on toast.

No need to be all scientific on brain food when Marmite tastes as good as it does.

No wonder my brain goes numb at times - must stock up on the Marmite - will that make any difference - I've tried and I've tried again but nope - Marmite doesn't do it for me I'm afraid. You boyz keep on taking it - it's obviously working with your neurotranspotters and your gamma-amniotic- fluid - it's going right over my head - or should that be brain???? See I can't even write what I mean like, yuh know. JantheFan x
