Food exists in abundance today, but what are we eating? Foods with fiber, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and the critically important omega-3 fatty acids? Or foods without them? Startling research in the journal Food Review shows that today a full 50 percent of the vegetables we eat consist of the trimmings on a hamburger and a side of fries.
Most people today know that nutrition and health are related. We have heard that poor nutrition plays a role in cardiovascular disease and cancer, but what about other conditions? Is it an underlying factor in depression, anxiety, multiple scleroris, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases, migraine headaches, ADHD, and more? And, if so, what can we do about it?
The Brain Diet explains the connection between diet, mental health, and realizing the full potential of our intelligence. It shows how poor nutrition adversely affects our mental health and success, and what can be done to achieve our full intellectual capacity (and to help our children do the same).
Despite being just 2 percent of total adult weight, the human brain demands an enormous amount of energy and an ample flow of blood for it to work most effectively. Our ability to think, to reason, to create art and music, to develop technology and perform complex work, and much more is at stake in what we eat. The Brain Diet explains the science behind how our brains function and provides suggestions for eating a healthy diet.
Included are the basics of a brain-healthy diet, brain-healthy recipes, helpful charts, and food supplements that enhance our mental function (and the science behind how they work). A revolutionary new way of looking at mental health and intelligence, The Brain Diet gives new meaning to the adage, "You are what you eat."
