Table of contents

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.


Better Brain Food presents a compelling argument that the


food you eat can make a big difference to your quality of life


as you age. Combined with over 70 inspiring recipes that


offer optimal nutrition for brain health and the prevention of


dementia, which can be adapted for households for singles


to larger families, it is the lifestyle guide you need as you or


those you love grow old.
