The Better Brain Book: The Best Tools for Improving Memory and Sharpness and for Preventing Aging of the Brainby David Perlmutter
Synopses & Reviews
From the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Grain Brain...
Loss of memory is not a natural part of aging—and this book explains why.
Celebrated neurologist David Perlmutter reveals how everyday memory-loss—misplacing car keys, forgetting a name, losing concentration in meetings—is actually a warning sign of a distressed brain. Here he and Carol Colman offer a simple plan for repairing those problems, clarifying misconstrued connections between memory loss and aging, and regaining and maintaining mental clarity by offering the tools for:
Building a better brain through nutrition, lifestyle changes, and brain workouts
Coping with specific brain disorders such as stroke, vascular dementia, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, multiple sclerosis, and Lou Gehrig's disease
Understanding risk factors and individually tailoring a diet and supplementary program
Features a "Life Style Audit," quizzes, a brain fitness program with the most effective ways to exercise your brain, and a nutritional program that details the best brain food and supplements.
Celebrated neurologist Dr. Perlmutter shows readers how easy it is to regain and maintain clarity by offering the best tools for improving memory and preventing the aging of the brain.
