Brain Food: The Surprising Science of Eating for Cognitive Power
DO YOU CARE ABOUT YOUTH HEALTH AND YOUR BRAIN? My dear friend Dr. Lisa Mosconi, Italian citizen turned Bronx resident has just published the most important book on brain health: Brain Food: The Surprising Science of Eating for Cognitive Power.
This is the book I’ve been waiting for - simple, human language on a terrifying complex topic. As someone who is obsessed with nutrition, it’s very hard to find REAL research and sound logic. There’s a lot of people who proclaim to be health experts, but few people who can say they are trained in both scientific and holistic approaches. Dr. Mosconi’s book FINALLY gets to the bottom of what we all need to know to take care of our brains.
She is one of the first neuroscientists to stand up and proclaim that our brains have unique nutritional needs! And if we pay attention to its needs, we can reverse cognitive decline.
On top of being a kickass neuroscientist running some of the most cutting edge Alzheimers research programs in the world, she became an integrative nutritionist. Her book actually tackles the heart of the paleo-gluten debates with logic
And the best part is that she integrates all of her previous breakthrough research on Alzheimers that showed how brain imaging can detect Alzheimers decades BEFORE any clinical symptoms emerge. That means you could have Alzheimers RIGHT NOW now but you don’t know it. But Lisa’s key message is that prevention and halting the progression of brain degeneration is possible - you don’t need fancy medicine, you just need some sound logic, real food and a balanced lifestyle.
Her book ends with a quiz for you to self-assess where you are on the brain health spectrum.
PS - And if you are already a fan of integrative health experts such as Dr. Terry Wahls, Dr. Sarah Ballentyne, Dr. Mark Hyman, Dr. Colin T. Campbell, Dr. Michael Greger, Dr. Dean Sherzai and Dr. Ayesha Sherzai - then this is a beyond worthy book to add to your collection.
