Noggin Fix:

Packed with brain nutrients, this salad is awesome for fatigue due to 100% vitamins D & B-12, plus 25% omega 3s and iron with 80% B-6 and 15% vitamin E.   The B-12, Omega 3s and 80% magnesium provide support for memory function, and the added excess of 100% vitamin C means it is great for depression and anxiety.  Finally, the 100% manganese means that with the B-12, vitamins C and E, and B-6 this salad helps with co-ordination too.
