Could your breakfast or lunch be harming your memory?
Are you missing out on the foods that could prevent Alzheimer's disease?
Everyone knows good nutrition supports your overall health, but few realize that certain foods-power foods-can protect your brain and optimize its function, and even dramatically reduce your risk of Alzheimer's Disease. Now, New York Times bestselling author, clinical researcher and health advocate Dr. Neal Barnard has gathered the most up-to-date research and created a groundbreaking program that can strengthen your memory and protect your brain's health.
In this effective 3-step plan Dr. Barnard reveals which foods to increase in your diet and which to avoid, and shows you specific exercises and supplements that can make a difference. It will not only help boost brain health, but it can also reduce your risk of Alzheimer's disease, stroke, and other less serious malfunctions such as low energy, poor sleep patterns, irritability, and lack of focus. You'll discover:
The best foods to increase cognitive function Dairy products and meats-the dangers they may pose to your memory The surprising roles alcohol and caffeine play in Alzheimer's risk The latest research on toxic metals, like aluminum found in cookware, soda cans, and common antacids. Plus a detailed menu plan, recipes and time-saving kitchen tips
This was my first ebook - I am the library type, frugal - and I am so glad I read it! I work in the nutritional field and have followed a plant based diet for years and now I have a medical professional on my side! So many people told me my diet wasn't good, yet it is very similar to Dr. B's! I hope to follow the ideas and especially like the motivation the book gave me to exercise my brain! I highly recommend this book!
Scientific medical info made easy to understand
This book is great! Complicated medical stuff is not only easy to understand here but the book is fun to read, seeming more like an intimate conversation with a doctor friend rather than a listing of dry facts. And if eating beans, grains, veggies, and fruit is all it takes for all these benefits as laid out here, well that's easy after reading this book. Buy the book: save your life.
