From the Back Cover
The Healthy Brain makes the compelling case that most people’s brains are underperforming because they are undernourished. As the most metabolically active organ of the body, the brain has nutritional needs that are ten times higher than that of any other organ. The brain is therefore the first organ to falter when it is improperly fed.
Well respected for her ability to translate complex nutritional research into clear, evidence-based guidelines for the safe, effective use of supplements, Burford-Mason offers step-by-step guidance on how to implement dietary changes and select appropriate supplements for optimal brain power at any age. She makes liberal use of real-life case histories from her practice and summarizes leading-edge scientific research to support her advice.
The immediate payoff of adopting these strategies is a noticeable increase in brain vitality—better mood, focus, creativity and workplace performance, and an improved capacity to enjoy life, sleep soundly and cope well under stress. The long-term benefit is that these same dietary changes have shown the most promise in helping us avoid Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia.
This book argues that feeding the brain properly is a lifelong project. Ultimately, memory and cognition in later life depend on the care and feeding our brains receive throughout our entire lives.--This text refers to the paperback edition.
