Is A Marmite Easter Egg The Healthiest Easter Treat?

I wasn't tempted by this year's Marmite Easter eggs, although I do love Marmite. Salted caramel coffee didn't work for m either. But a report from the University of York has found a link between the B12 found in the good stuff, that increases levels of a specific neurotransmitter called GABA. Nature's alternative to valium in the brain.

So I'm wondering what the advantage will be if the Marmite is delivered via chocolate Easter egg.

Apparently GABA or Gamma-aminobutyric acid, works to reduce the brain’s response to visual stimuli. So potentially reducing anxiety, panic attacks, insomnia and seizures.

The other important B Vitamins present in Marmite are needed for the heart, liver, kidneys, normal cholesterol levels, nervous and neural health. And we know Marmite is also beneficial for pregnancy with 50% of the daily requirements of folic acid per serving. To promote fetal development.

Although Marmite is high in salt it sounds like the ideal wonder food. So I guess the Marmite chocolate egg is the healthiest Easter treat. And with so much time being devoted to our mental health these days, especially because of the younger Royals and their Heads Together Charity, it would be lovely if something as simple as a spoonful of Marmite, or spreading it on your toast every day, could improve the nation's mental health.

Got to love it!
