Why eat Purple foods?
If you didn’t read about The Throat Chakra let me explain that blue foods & purple foods act alike in nutrition. Let’s refresh our memory to what was said previously:
Blue foods like purple foods contain nutrients which include vitamin C, fiber, flavonoids, quercetin, etc. These nutrients strengthen retinal health. They lower our cholesterol. Along with healthy digestion it boosts our immunity. Helps you absorb minerals & other nutrients. It also acts as an anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogen.
How does Melatonin relate to The Third Eye Chakra?
It is said that the third eye is located where we call the pineal gland. This pineal gland controls our feel good center of the brain(along with many other functions). The hormones that it produces are called melatonin, serotonin, & believed to be DMT (Dimethyltryptamine).
Why should we nurture our melatonin?
Many of us neglect the importance of sleep with our busy schedules, some may not be able to control it(like us mothers). Melatonin helps our bodies age gracefully & regenerate. We are regenerating organisms so it is of the utmost importance to allow ourselves to recharge.
