Description

Ageing is a triumph of modern medicine. On average we can expect to live 10 or 20 years longer than our grandparents' generation. These extra years are a wonderful bonus but also impose unprecedented challenges to our bodies and brains.Recent scientific investigations have uncovered foods and ingredients that can help protect brain cells from damage by oxidation and inflammation, and keep the systems that support them working as well as possible. There is no magic pill (and beware of anyone who claims a simple solution), but there is evidence-based advice on foods and lifestyle strategies that can give your brain the best chance of peak health.An international authority on nutrition for aged care, dietitian Ngaire Hobbins presents a compelling argument that the food you eat can make a big difference to your quality of life as you age. Combined with inspiring recipes that offer optimal nutrition for brain health and can be adapted for households for singles to larger families, Better Brain Food is the lifestyle guide you need as you or those you love grow old.show more
