Publisher's Summary

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 best-selling 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 three-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 
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.

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.

SUPERB! Thank you for the “science” behind this book.

Very concise and easy to follow. Longevity runs on both sides of my family. However, I have seen that my brothers and sisters do not enjoy a quality of life that my father and mother enjoyed into their last years. Mental clarity well into their nineties - father died at 95 and mother just shy of 100.
A must read for not only those that are approaching their senior years but for the young. This book offers hope and guidance to make the changes in what we eat so we can grow old gracefully.

Nothing New to Add

A lot of information but nothing too new to add to the conversation. Another urge to move to be vegan and conflicts some information with other books I have read about Blue Zones, these zones are not vegetarian however only eat meat once a week and usually not red meat. Also, never heard anything bad about drinking tea in relation to toxic minerals in the leaves. I always heard about health benefits for tea.

Always good to hear different views to expand my knowledge!

Mandatory if health is a top priority for you! :)

Loved it.
Covers all aspects both for the brain and for the body. Goes a bit into too much detail on certain diseqses and pills/drugs effects, while syill good to know those even if you are not suffering or taking any of those.

A great read, highly recommended.
