Book Review: Grain Brain

Book Review: Grain Brain

“Carbs, sugar and gluten are destroying your brain”

What?! Yep, apparently so, according to renowned neurologist Dr David Perlmutter , the author of this months book: Grain Brain.

So put down that bagel and get involved!

Dr Perlmutter is recognised as a leader in the science of brain nutrition and has won numerous awards for his scientific publications and innovative approaches for treating cognitive/brain disorders.

Grain Brain is now an international bestseller, so incredibly rich with information, revelations and compelling evidence that I could talk about it for hours

However I’ll keep it brief…..

Essentially Dr Perlmutter’s message is that gluten, sugar and carbs (including so called healthy options) are destroying our brains, and that they can cause conditions including dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches and depression to name a few.

Dr. Perlmutter explains in depth

  • what happens when the brain encounters common ingredients in foods such as bread and fruit
  • why our brains thrives on fat and cholesterol
  • how we can spur the growth of new brain cells
  • how we can take control of our “smart genes” through dietary choices and lifestyle habits
  • how we can protect and improve our brain function regardless of age
  • How the right nutrition and basic dietary changes can help alleviate, or even reverse brain disease, eliminate brain fog symptoms, and improve memory and energy levels

The book also includes a 4 week action plan for a healthy brain.

For me personally this is a fascinating and greatly empowering book which I recommend for anyone who wants the healthiest and happiest life possible for themselves and their loved ones.

Stay well
