Overview

We've all heard about centenarians, those precious few who live to be 100 years old and are still in good shape physically and mentally. Nutritional science and neuroscience have begun to crack the code, revealing what it is that allows some brains to stay healthier than others as they age. By making a few changes, we can adopt the habits of centenarians to increase our chances of a healthy brain for years to come.

In Brain Food: The Surprising Science of Eating for Cognitive Power, neuroscientist and integrative nutritionist Lisa Mosconi shares how nutrition affects brain function and the prevention of diseases such as Alzheimer's. Mosconi debunks popular misconceptions about nutrients - which are good, which are bad, and why - and shares recipe plans to keep your brain functioning well into the future.

Favorite Quote

"Just as we would eat differently to slim down than to train for a triathlon, when optimizing for long-term cognitive health, the brain has its own demands. As it turns out, our future lies in our own hands – and what's on our menu."
