Publisher's Summary

Could that glass of milk affect your memory? Is that aluminum can increasing your risk for Alzheimer's disease? Can a banana be a brain booster? Everyone knows that good nutrition supports your heart and overall health, but did you know that certain foods can protect your brain and optimize its function? In Power Foods for the Brain, Dr. Neal Barnard reveals the suprising mealtime choices that can make a major difference in preserving and enhancing memory and brain health.

Leading health expert Dr. Neal Barnard has gathered the most important research and studies from all over the world to create a program outlining the specific food choices that can boost brain health, reducing the risk of Alzheimer's disease, stroke, and other causes of memory loss. In addition, these power foods will help listeners tackle the minor malfunctions of their busy day-to-day lives, including low energy, poor sleep patterns, irritability, and memory lapses. The plan includes information on:

  • The best foods to increase cognitive function and boost folate, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12
  • The dangers dairy products and meats may have on memory
  • The role alcohol plays in Alzheimer's risk
  • The latest research on certain toxic metals, like aluminums found in cookware, soda cans, and common antacids

In addition to revealing the surprising role nutrition and the power foods play on preserving brain health, Power Foods for the Brain will also include 50-75 recipes to put them to work, as well as quick time-saving kitchen tips.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "Audio Book Needs a PDF cookbook attachment"

    Excellent information that is applicable for any level of physiological understanding; the author does not dummy down information, but makes it accessible.

    "Worth the read"
    What made the experience of listening to Power Foods for the Brain the most enjoyable?

    Good narration and interesting material


    What about Jeremy Arthur’s performance did you like?

    Quite good


    Any additional comments?

    Fascinatingly informative about where garbage in our food and personal products comes from. Compelling book about eating a more plant-centric diet.

    "Powerful"
    What did you love best about Power Foods for the Brain?

    This book was jam-packed with nutritional information that I loved. Dr. Barnard puts the medical information in layman's turns so it is easy to understand and comprehend. Sometimes nutritionists and doctors use their medical terms and expect you to understand what they're saying. There was so much information that I wanted to remember or highlight and so I bought the book! He gives such compelling information from our diets, to vitamins, minerals, exercise, and sleep. Jeremy Arthur also did a great job in narrating the book.

    "Vegan book"

    I didn't know that dairy and meats could affect our guts and thus our brain. Say goodbye to all bad habits and get healthy along with me

    "okay"

    The book spoke mainly on alzheimer's disease, which does concern the mind but not exactly what I was expecting. Chapter 10 was the best part of the book. I did learn a couple of things. Overall if I could get my money back and select a different book I would. The narrator read fine.

    "Great information"

    Before this I listened to Healthy Eating Healthy world by J.Morris Hicks I was still skeptical about cutting meat and dairy so I downloaded this book and it re affirms the idea of cutting meat and dairy. On YouTube you may want to look up learn organic gardening. I would have liked a few more recipes or some more help overcoming bad habits.

    "Good book"

    The book was interesting, but sometimes difficult to follow when the author talked about all the milligrams and other measurements. Then again, I listened to the book via Audible. Maybe if I had the book in front of me it would be easier :o
