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.
