A neuroscientist who is also a nutritionist, Dr. Lisa Mosconi, shares fascinating research (both hers and the research of teams of scientists) along with strategies and recipes for eating for optimum brain health. Studies are beginning to show that it is possible to improve memory and prevent cognitive decline—at any age—and it starts with what you eat.
Whether you’re focused on ensuring your brain stays sharp as you age or you’re recovering from a brain injury, such as a concussion—or you just want your brain operating at peak performance—you’ll find the research promising and the “prescriptions” for boosting your brain health and recovery totally doable. We all can drink more spring water!
