Product Description
 
We are what we eat' is an age-old adage. But while we often talk about diets affecting our fitness, we don't talk about how what we eat and drink affects the health of the hungriest organ in the body - our brain.Brain Food makes clear the connection between nutrition and our brain's health, focusing attention on how crucial dietary recommendations are - three eggs, for example, provide the daily amount of brain super-nutrients that are often deficient in Alzheimer's patients. Based partly on her own discoveries, and using dynamic dietary concepts and emerging science, such as the connection between the brain and the gut, Dr Lisa Mosconi expertly reveals the importance of starting work to prevent dementia, stress and memory loss now, no matter how old we are.We are what we eat' is an age-old adage.
