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 overall health, but did you know that certain foods can protect your brain and optimize its function? In this book the author has gathered research and studies to deliver a program that can boost brain health, reducing the risk of Alzheimer's disease, stroke, and other less serious malfunctions, including low energy, poor sleep patterns, irritability, and lack of focus. 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 ; Plus, 50-75 recipes and timesaving kitchen tips
